We had a blast on the 1/2 day Numbers. Our guide (Austin) was awesome and everyone there was courteous, helpful, and funny; our kids loved the experience. When we go back (which we will) we are doing the full day trip. Thank you so much

Our guide gave us an exceptional experience we will never forget. He had been guiding rafts for 15 years and I think he could have taken us down the river blindfolded and backwards. We rafted the Numbers portion of the Arkansas that was filled with class four and five rapids. He made our trip seem effortless compared to some other... More

On a short business trip, I had the fortune to be in Buena Vista, CO and meet with the owners of this company, Coby and JV. Awesome professionals who signed me up with their staff for an all day raft trip through Brown's Canyon. Arrived at 915 in the morning and was on the water at 1015 with a flow... More

Our family of 5(12,11,8 yr old kids) took a full day rafting trip. From the moment we walked into the bldg everyone was friendly. Our guide JT made out trip extremely comfortable & safe. The kids LOVED it. The lunch was out of this world. We ate until we were over full. There are many companies to choose from, but... More

This is the final review, of three, for the trip we had to cancel due to the unexpected death of my father-in-law. We had planned a trip to Colorado, to celebrate the wedding of dear friends, for over a year. Sadly, a week before we were to leave for Colorado - my father-in-law died suddenly. I had to call all...

I took a four-day trip out to Denver from New Jersey to visit a friend who had just moved out West. We decided to go white water rafting out in Buena Vista and chose Buffalo Joe's as they had a solid reputation for WWR in Colorado and had been around for a while. We did a half-day Brown's Canyon trip... More

We had a blast! We did the numbers twice and had a delicious steak lunch fresh off the grill while the other rafting companies served cold cuts. Especially grateful for their safety precautions and experienced guides. There was a fatality on the river that day w/ another company on a class 5 that we learned of later. Ask for Curtis.... More
