Awesome Rafting Experience
Alyssa_S, Jul 2021
Our group had a fantastic time on the Royal Gorge half day trip. Booking and check-in were very easy, and the staff were all super friendly and helpful. Our guide Critter was extremely knowledgeable and gave us some great local recommendations as well. We would definitely raft with him & RGR again!
Best adventure trip ever
