We did the half day trip down the Big Horn Canyon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The trip was both relaxing and exciting and we would definitely do it again. The group at WAO were professional and our guide was awesome.

Great trip down the Arkansas River with Shawn. He kept us safe and on the raft and also provided alot of history about the river. Both guides we met seemed professional and confident. We would use this company again next time we visit.
