What Our Guests Are Saying

“Great Experience for my Family with Young Kids”
RyanDavis21
Vinton, Iowa
“Awesome experience. I have four kids ages 11 through 5 and I wanted to find something that even our 5 year old could do but that would also be exciting for the adults. This was perfect...Our guide, Mark, has young kids of his own so he knew how to give us an experience that was safe but very exciting. We did the 3/4 Day and it was the highlight of our vacation to Colorado. When we come back I will definitely book again with this company.” Read Full Review

“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

“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
“Fantastic, fun, faith-built company!”
Brian S
Des Moines, Iowa
“We did the full day trip through the Bighorn Sheep Canyon and Royal Gorge on our honeymoon, and absolutely loved it...Nicki, our guide was absolutely amazing... personable, friendly, knowledgeable and in control, and did a great job of making the trip safe and fun for everybody. It was refreshing to be with other believers. You could see the love of Christ in the staff members faces, and they were unashamed of Christ, but definitely not pushy with their faith...We had the ride of our lives, and if we're ever back in that area again, we'll definitely be re-booking with Journey Quest! ” Read Full Review

Kayaking with a Purpose

Like all our trips, the purpose is much more than just whitewater kayaking. Our guides seek opportunities to use even a couple hours together on the river to share about the love and grace that is found in Jesus Christ. On this half-day trip, we seek to share the transformational power of the living Gospel with all of our guests using spiritual analogies, personal testimonies, and thought provoking questions. This trip is perfect for your family, friends, or youth group who are looking to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Our guides look to be an example of what a disciple of Christ looks like by proclaiming the truth of the Bible, showing love towards one another, and praying with you during your trip.
