My family and I have been rafting numerous times and our younger girls wanted more adventure. This was the first time our 21 year old son would be rafting with us. We wanted to book "The Numbers" but all the websites of all the rafting companies said they had a minimum age of 14. When I called Buffalo Joe's (their... More

We took the half day 2pm trip through Brown's Canyon on 7/15/13. I actually booked our trip through Buffalo Joe's sister company Echo Canyon as we originally wanted to do a Royal Gorge area trip but due to the area forest fires decided to do Brown's Canyon which was more on the way to our next traveling stop anyway. Our... More

If you want one pic (cd only)... More

Our family had an awesome time rafting with this outfitter... It was a great time. I highly recommend the full day trip with the steak lunch. It is amazing how they can cook up such a great lunch in the middle of no-where. No wimpy sandwiches on this trip, JT was an awesome guide, lots of experience and great conversation.

We had such a great time rafting with Buffalo Joes. Our guide Jacobi made the trip very safe yet tons of fun. The river was beautiful. I expectedb to be flipped out of the raft but we guided expertly through and didn't lose any one. My only thing negative us that the company tends to nickel and dime you throughout... More

We did the numbers 1/2 day trip. It was a great experience. I had never been rafting before, but our guide was so great, I felt confident he would get us back safely! Go JT! I was also worried about the temp of the water, but it wasn't too cold in just splashes at a time.

He is experienced, knowledgeable and fun and you can tell he enjoys his job! J.T. pointed out lots of great rock formations,... More

No complaints. Had wet suits and boots available (for a small fee)to wear on the river. Had a VERY experienced guide, Jacoby. Worth every penny. SO much fun.

We took our 2 boys , ages 9 and 12, on the 1/2 day down Brown's Canyon - it was perfect. When asked about the trip it is still at the top of their lists as a highlight. Our guide was great as well - thanks Margo! Would definately recommend.
