I had a great experience with Curtis as our guide this summer. He was knowledgeable of the river and extremely likable. While other rafts were close to tipping, we always remained under control. Performance was flexible with the unpredictable circumstances that happen when coordinating with a large group. Thank you for your patience! :)

I've had several trips with Performance Tours. They were the first outfit I chose years ago for my first rafting experience after researching on line. And I've kept coming back because they consistently deliver an outstanding experience. I've done full and half day trips in Browns Canyon, Big Horn Canyon and the Royal Gorge. My most recent trip this summer... More

went rafting with PT in June. Our guide was awesome and it turns out he was testing to be an official guide, instead of a trainee. He nailed it, we even bought him the picture and a frame to commemorate his first real trip.

Some friends and I went on a float trip out by Kremmling. The trip was well coordinated and super fun. Our guide Dan was really helpful and excited to take us on the river. Thanks for an awesome trip!!

My husband and I had a great trip today with Maui! I couldn't have asked for a better, more patient, personable and talented river guide. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I took the full day through Royal Gorge and had a blast. The water level was lower for this time of year, but with some recent rains, the river was plenty rapid. Our raft was a true team lead by the awesome guide Billy, who is constantly focused and engaged on making our trip worthwhile. The included... More

This is the second time we have rafted with Performance Tours and both times were a lot of fun. Performance is very professional and outfits you with helmets, paddles, jackets (optional), booties (optional but highly recommended) and highly trained guides. The rafting experience really depends on the water levels and time of year that you go. The first time we... More
