Booked this place because they had life vest small enough for a 4 yr old. Guide (Matt Brown) greeted us and quickly put us at ease. He made everyone feel comfortable and valued. Changing rooms were nice and big. Rafting was so much fun. By the end, my 4 yr old (who can not swim and is a little uneasy... More

We did the 1/2 day Browns canyon trip, and it was spectacular! The whole process was seamless, from making the reservation to checking in to suiting up for the trip. Ben was our guide, and he did a great job making us comfortable, which was good since it was our first whitewater rafting trip. As a side note, we also... More

We are an older couple -60ish- and had a great time! We were blessed to have Zack as our guide. He is the BEST! Beautiful scenery, exciting rapids and a very capable guide made this a highlight of our Colorado Trip.

Our route was called the "Narrows Express" and our guide was Nicki on July 11, 2015 she took my wife and I on an amazing trip lasting a little over 23 miles and 8 hours we enjoyed the class 4 rapids and lots of class 3 rapids more than either of us were anticipating. There were six in our party... More

It was an OK trip. They did not accommodate a dietary request which only is an issue because they said they would before we booked the trip. Guides were not special. We will use a different company next time

Brady was the best trip leader one could hope for! He was skilled in teaching and assisting ages 9-73! We had a safe and fun time down the Arkansas river and had a super camping / dining experience to boot! He went above and beyond with the hikes, warm sweaters for chilly hours and was just the nicest guide in... More

Our adult family (ages from 29 to 61) took a trip down Brown's Canyon with Zack "Cookie" Wright on 7/19 and we had a blast. Only two of us had done whitewater before, and two of the rookies were a bit apprehensive, so I chose Brown's Canyon as opposed to "The Numbers". Brown's turned out to be the perfect choice....

What fun! They even had a wet suit that fit me. Our guide was excellent, She weighed half of what I do but she was so knowledgable, competent and strong.

Our guide was Tom on our half-day trip on the Browns. I was excited and had high hopes of having an excellent trip and I was not disappointed. I not only rafter for the first time but I also got to see the beauty that God created in a whole new way! Thank you so much Tom and Wilderness Aware... More

We took a group of 16 of our agents rafting for a team building workshop. We chose the all day Numbers trip because of the class 4 and 5 rapids and non stop action, and it did not disappoint! The trip was excellent and our guides were awesome! WE had several in our group that had never rafted before and... More
