What Our Guests Are Saying

“What a great afternoon!”

“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
“Excellent Experience – Highly Recommend”
Cococanuck14
Hoschton, Georgia
“Our party represented a wide range of ages (50-something to age 8) and rafting ability (first-timer to very experienced), yet management and our personal guide, Denise, worked with us to find a half-day trip that would please everyone. The scenery was lovely, and the trip delivered just the right amount of thrills for our group...We appreciated the fact that the trip began with a prayer for safety and ended with prayer of thanksgiving for a safe journey. Look forward to traveling with Journey Quest again.” Read Full Review
“Great Fun, Inspiring people, memories for life!!”

“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
“Pleasant surprise”
Bob K
Sanger, Texas
“We floated the Gorge with Journey Quest before we attended a John Eldridge bootcamp...Everyone knew immediately God put us with them as the float adventure tied in with the spiritual bootcamp perfectly. Everyone felt like John was talking to our group at the bootcamp. We had a great time with both adventures and look forward to doing it again next year.” Read Full Review
“Excellent for Youth Groups!”

“The youth group I work with has gone rafting with Journey quest multiple times as a cap-off to a week of missions outreach. Not only is it a fun and exciting time of bonding, but it is so refreshing to hear your guide talk about the beauty of God's creation like a real, down-to-earth, and fun-loving person. All the guides I've met are very skilled at teaching, encouraging, and leading their rafting crew, which puts even those who are a bit squeamish about the endeavor at ease.” Read Full Review
