The entire experience was 5 star. The entire staff and especially our guide Adam. He did an exceptional job to keep us safe yet make sure we had the thrill of a lifetime. The Lost Paddle is a family owned local company which made our decision to choose them over the bigger corporate owned guide services even better!! You Won’t Be Disappointed choosing The Lost Paddle for an adventure of a lifetime. The Thompson family. Stover Mo.

We had lots of fun especially with Nathan, our guide. He gave us lots of information about the river as well as guided us really well through the rapids. I would definitely recommend this company if you want to go rafting since they give you much more attention than those big raft companies

Super duper fun experience!!! Wonderful staff, they were very professional and welcoming. I really enjoyed being with a smaller company, instead of the large ones that go out in huge groups. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and take it seriously. All the equipment was in great condition, everything felt very safe. 10/10 would recommend!!

Nathan was an awesome guide. I was scared at first but then I learned our guide Nathan knew his stuff and as long as we did what he said we would be fine. He was an enjoyable person to visit with and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an experienced guide that is fun but also safe. He taught us to work as a team and he would tell us what we needed to do to navigate the rough water. He was very relaxed and a blast to ride with. I hope his boss promotes him as it is well deserved!

:-D Great review of Nathan! Thank you for taking the time to write this up. I'm not to sure he can be promoted much above the prestige he already carries as our Headboatman! Thanks again for rafting with us, we appreciate your business! -Jim & Kelly Wick

Support small businesses in Cañon City! This operation has very passionate and professional guides (Nate 👍🏼👍🏼), on time operations, and solid equipment. The boats were in great shape and clearly this is a Safety forward tour operator. Kelly went above and beyond with detailed suggestions for mountain biking trails. Thank you for a really fun experience on and off the river

Our guide was excellent and Royal Gorge was prettier than a lot of rafting trips because you don't see the road much at all. It's mostly gorgeous canyons and rock formations with a scenic train going by. Love this trip. My friend and I had a blast!

Awesome trip. A small company that can give you experiences like stopping and jumping off of a 15ft. rock into the river. Our guide Anna was outstanding. Don't let the lack of a fancy building fool you this operation is first class. Go for the Royal Gorge trip you will be glad you did.

We've always operated under the premise that our guests did not come here to see a lavish Taj Mahal type facility. You come to see the natural beauty of Colorado's Royal Gorge! We want our focus to be on CUSTOMER SEVICE and RAFTING. Thanks again for adventuring with all of us at the Lost Paddle Rafting Company! We appreciate your business! -Jim & Kelly

The Royal Gorge trip was perfect for an adventurous family. Flows were 700+ and that made for some exciting rapids. Not to mention that the scenery was amazing. Lost Paddle had great communication and was very efficient in getting us on the river. Everyone was very friendly and our guide Tyler had excellent knowledge of the river as well as the history of the Gorge.

Jon was a great guide that had to take care of a bunch of immature adults and did very well. :D We had a great day going down class 4/5's and nobody got hurt. The views were great and the staff was knowledgeable. There were no delays or issues from start to finish.

I took a group of 17-18 year old football players on this tour. We had a blast! Our guides were experienced, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I would highly recommend Lost Paddle Rafting to anyone looking for a Colorado rafting trip.

Fun but harrowing adventure
Would have given 5 stars but 3 people fell out. Rider beware-when they say "bump" they mean "buckle down buttercup"
