What Our Guests Are Saying

“Full Day Adventure – Royal Gorge Whitewater Rafting Trip”
Kfk73
Cedarburg, Wisconsin
“We went on the Full Day Adventure Royal Gorge Whitewater Rafting Trip. It was a wonderful trip and I would highly recommend it for those who love whitewater rafting. We went in August so the river was down some, but we still had great rapids and a very enjoyable trip. Our guide did an excellent job. If we lived closer we would go several times a year. The kids thought the whitewater rafting trip was the best activity we did while in Colorado.” Read Full Review
“Amazing Family Adventure”

“We'd been waiting to raft until our youngest could go with us. Journey Quest provided a wonderful family rafting experience for us all. We had Mark with us and our group of six, four being our kids ages 8-12. He was great throughout and being a father himself, answered all the kids' questions without a problem. It was fast-paced for the adults, but tame enough for the kids. Very experienced and professional group of guides.” Read Full Review

“Our family thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our rafting trip with our guides, Mark and Ryan. What makes it even better is the fact that they are Christians! We spent the whole day breaking spiritual bread with some awesome men of God...and we got to navigate the waters of Royal Gorge in the process! ” Read Full Review

“We did a five night group excursion with Journey Quest and had the time of our life. We did three days of rafting, one day of rock climbing and one day of alpine hiking. What a great time. The staff was excellent, helpful and professional. We really appreciated their commitment to safety. For a short rafting trip or a longer group activity, I highly recommend Journey Quest.” Read Full Review

“It was the most amazing time we have had in a looong time! From the beginning when Mark gave the safety meeting I knew we were in good (Gods) hands! We then met our guide for the trip, Ryan is an amazing young man, and an inspiration to anyone who is lucky enough to meet him! ...There are tons of Rafting companies on the Arkansas River, but we will be back and recommending Journey Quest every time... ” Read Full Review

Living in a Fishbowl

Guiding on the Arkansas River is an entirely engaging experience. When one is paddling through a rapid, all the focus is on the water straight ahead. As a guide, my viewpoint has been from the river. I immerse myself in each trip by talking with my guests and...

Be Still

What does it mean to be still and know that He is God? What does being still in his presence mean? What does it mean to know God? When I think about getting to know someone, I imagine conversations, activities done together, and places seen together.

Who’s Guiding Your Boat?

Training is just around the corner and our new guides will start training with us May 10th. The thrill and anticipation for the summer is rising. We are excited to hit the water and teach our trainees what it looks like to guide a boat. Through training, they learn how to read the river, control their boat, give commands, and talk with their crew.
