We have used Arkansas River Tours 3 times. All were great experiences. Marshal was our guide this time and did a great job. You can tell he loves what he is doing and had us ready for each rapid. He also gave us a nice history lesson on the Royal Gorge and the area around it.

This was excellent. Haven’t been rifting in a while, and definitely wanted to do this one. Our guide Calvin was super. Good conversation, easy to follow instructions, all around great person. Will definitely request him on next run. Thanks for an awesome day.

Absolutely awesome, we had a group of 15 and all had a blast! The guides were the best, knowledge, personable, and they knew the river very well! Especially Calvin, dude was the man! Austin and “tank” were equally as good. Would highly recommend! See ya on the river!
