Just a great time
Joe_S, Aug 2022
The trip was very well organized and went remarkably smoothly. Ben was an amazing guide and gets extra credit for really making sure my 12 year-old son had a great time on his first rafting experience. Would absolutely come back and book another trip with them!
First Timer!

The staff was great. The rafting was not hard and still enjoyable. Definitely a great place to go for a first float trip.
Awesome experience

The trip was excellent, River Masters was an excellent company to work with, and our guide Matt was not only excellent in his skills in the river he was also excellent in allowing our family to enjoy the experience. The experience was so awesome we decided take on the Royal Gorge rafting tour the next day.
Great family fun…
