We had a great rafting trip down the Rio Grande near Taos. Our guide was excellent and made us feel safe while giving us an adventurous ride at the same time. I would recommend Cottam's because they were prompt, professional, and a lot of fun. We had a great time. They also had a photographer take our picture while we... More

This is a great river rafting tour of he Rio Grande. I did river rafting one other time in Switzerland and Cottam's guides are so much better. Jaime was our guide and he entertained us with stories about the river and rafting instructions for 2 fun hours. We did the race course and we had blast. If you book through... More

Evan and his cohorts were great fun, while being very experienced rafters. Evan made it an adventure even though RioGrande River was running low. We will go in June next time for some big box canyon rafting!

Do the race track for more fun. Bill was great and we felt very comfortable with him. We had a 6 yr old on the trip and he was wonderful with him.

I loved the personal touch. Called me to confirm reservation details. Wanted something calm as my 76 year old mother-in-law was with us and my kids our younger. Right on time to pick us up. It was just us..our party of 6 and our guide, Tristan. Cheaper than the other outfitter too! What made the trip so wonderful was our... More

We did a half day rafting trip as a surprise for my son's 11th birthday. Several times during the trip he said, "This is the best birthday ever!" So much fun! Bill was our guide and we would highly recommend him...kind, knowledgeable and made you feel totally safe. We've never used another rafting company in Taos and with the great... More

My family decided to try rafting for the first time. Cottam's was a great choice for us. Staff was very nice and accommodating, especially when we had to make a change. Highly recommend this company.

I had the most awesome time with my sister and I rafting. I am not a expert rafter and the guide made me feel so safe and ready for an adventure. I truly loved the experience and it made my trip the most enjoyable!

I love rafting & this was my first time down the Rio Grande. We did the Taos Box, which I highly recommend! It was absolutely awesome, filled with a great mix of relaxing & pretty killer rapids! Our guide Toni was super knowledgeable & entertaining- really added to the trip! Lunch was delicious! This tour really stood out- fun, professionalism... More
