My family and I just left the half day white water rafting experience at Brown's Canyon. We had a great time and can't wait to go back. My 9 year old daughter smiled and laughed for 3 hours straight! Our tour guide, Zach B, was the lead guide on the trip and kept us informed of all the easily missed... More

Our guide Reggie was amazing and very skilled. He was very entertaining and I would definitely raft with them again. It was nice, because we just had one boat, not one of those other outfitters that have 20 boats to keep track of. Very intimate and fun. Efficient as well, we got in a comfortable van that took us to... More

Buffalo Joe's has great guides, nice equipment, an efficient operation, and convenient downtown Buena Vista location. They matched the quoted price I had from another company's internet quote (20% off). We took the 1/2 day Brown's Canyon trip. It was nice and fun, but would have preferred more whitewater - will take one of the more advanced trips next time.

I had the chance to take the daylong trip with Buffalo Joe's crew. They provided all the equipment needed (except sunglasses or a hat which I recommend) for the day long trip. You float down the river which is very mild before lunch. After you stop and eat a delicious meal at a remote picnic spot. You head back out... More

My family recently booked two days of whitewater rafting with Buffalo Joe's. Because we had a younger member in our group, thew suggested the Wildhorse Canyon/Browns Canyon trip. We wanted plenty of whitewater and we weren't disappointed. The water was high enough on the Arkansas River that some of the areas were closed when we booked. Our guide was Paul... More

My 11 year old son and I did the full day rafting trip which included some of the Narrows and Browns Canyon. This was the highlight of our Colorado vacation. The water levels were extremely high which made for a VERY exciting trip that we'll never forget. A couple of the rafts did flip due to the water level but... More

My family and I come rafting every year with Buffalo Joe's and always have a great time. This year the river water level is up and very exciting. We rafted down the Brown's Canyon section again and it was amazing! My 15 year old sons and husband loved the high water and big rapids this year! Glad we wore wetsuits... More
