I had a great trip down the Rio Grande with the Santa Fe Rafting Company. The water was a bit calmer this time of year however it was still entertaining and fun. My guide, Anna, was very knowledgable of the waters and knew all the tips and tricks around the rocks. I enjoyed the half day rafting trip, just long enough. If I'm back I'd definitely do a full day and a more challenging course.

Tip: you can bring a towel and change of clothes to change into after the ride as there are bathrooms at the end of the ride. Valuables can be left in the van you ride in however watch your phones in extreme heat inside a hot car.

Definitely one of the highlights of our recent trip to Santa Fe. We did the half-day "Racecourse" trip. The whole thing was well organized, and the guides were knowledgeable and very good, especially our guide, Sam. He told us a lot about the sites we were seeing on the drive up to Taos and made things very comfortable and friendly once we got on the boat. Everything was great. Well worth the money for this trip!

A family group, including a slightly nervous 9 year old, came out of the water after a 2.5 hour raft (1+ hour journey by car each way made for a fun 5 hour trip) saying unanimously that it was the best fun of a trip that has included mountain biking, zip wiring and national park visiting. The guides are incredibly well informed (esp Neil), confident and inspire confidence. The river itself was great fun, chance to swim (we went on the Racecourse) as well as learn how to tackle a few rapids. Good simple snacks at the end, and all in all, a great morning's activity.

Our group of four adults really enjoyed our white water rafting experience with this company. Being able to drop one’s car in downtown Santa Fe and then be driven about one hour upstream is convenient. The safety tips from Jimmy Josh were thorough, humorous and, for potential “swimmers,” appropriately useful. Our guide was Sam, a teacher, by profession. He was great and answered all of our questions, including describing the other tours the company provides.
We easily could see ourselves going rafting again with Santa Fe Rafting when we are next in Santa Fe.

If you are looking for a white water rafting experience, this is the one for you! The guides are amazing and very knowledgeable and experienced. We took the Class III race course trip and it was great! There were several class III's that were a bit challenging but with the experience and the surperb coaching of our guide thay were a piece of cake. We had 4 adults and 2 childern in our raft and no one even came close to falling out. This is a very well run company and I would highly recommend them to anyone for an amazing experience. Thank you Neal. Great job!
