We took an afternoon half-day float last week. It was the MOST fun!! We had our kids, ages 9, 7 and 4 1/2, and it could not have been more perfect, except for maybe less headwind! Will, our guide, was so engaging with our kids. He even stopped to pick up an inner-tube to connect

The guides were wonderful. Their personality and helpfulness was second to none. Moderately priced for the length of the adventure and the professionalism and the amount of fun we had. I would suggest if you're in decent shape, to get your own individual kayak. Called a duckie.

Our guide Payton was fantastic! Super friendly and helpful. She did a great job with our 9 year old son Oliver who was reluctant to raft in the beginning. The scenery was beautiful and rafting was super safe and relaxing. The only difficult part was that when we arrived at

Response from Will B, Owner at Scenic Half-Day Float from Taos
Responded Jul. 16, 2020
Hi there, We are so happy to hear that your trip went great! Peyton is a great guide and we are glad you got you experience the Rio Grande with her. We apologize that the older gentleman at the Pilar Yacht Club was unpleasant. He does not work for us and in fact owns the Cafe. We are sorry in any case for the unpleasant interaction, he is in his early 70's and currently gets a little stressed out when a bunch of people are at his store and milling about just due to the current public health crisis. I am sure that contributed to his attitude. Again, we are very sorry and will address this issue with him. We hope to see you again out on the Rio! Best, Will

We had a great time rafting the half day course. The rapids were pretty Easy, but a good learning experience for the first time. Chris was our guide and did an outstanding job. He knew the river like the back of his hand. He guided the raft through particular turns and spins to

Good for newbies, young, inexperienced or fearful. Guide very good with 6 year old since he has one if his own. Nice snack at end. Had to do no work ourselves unless want to. Guide knew facts of history, geology, biology.
