2 Day Raft Trip Was Unforgettable!

5 5 1
I went on the 2 day Gunnison Gorge raft trip and had the most incredible time. I've been on a few multi-day trips, but this one takes the cake. The guides were very skilled, knowledgable, and friendly. The views were unforgettable and rapids thrilling. My favorite part was the waterfalls on the second day.

Arkansas River Tours made my first rafting experience so memorable!

This was my first ever river rafting trip and Arkansas River Tours made it so memorable. Thank you so much for making me feel at home on the river!

Can't Recommend This Rafting Trip Enough!

I've rafted on some rad rivers before, but this was by far my favorite! I did the Browns Canyon full day trip with a couple of buddies and it will be a trip I remember for life. Even though the rapids were pretty intense, our raft always felt in control. The guides are top notch! Great communication, great people, and a great time. I can't recommend Arkansas River Tours enough.
