My husband, myself and our sons ages 20 and 14 went on these 2 1/2 day trips on 2 separate days. This was our first time rafting and we were concerned about the weather and the temp of the water. It helped to know we could use splash jackets and wetsuits for no additional charge. It turned out to be... More

This was our first time rafting with our 4 kids, 15, 14 and two 9 yr olds. The twins were a little scared before we even got in the raft. Now they are asking if we can go again tomorrow:) Lei Lei was our beautiful guide. She was very knowledgable about our breathtaking surroundings. We are defiantly looking forward to... More

My husband and I took our 8 year old daughter on the full day, AVA Browns Canyon Rafting Trip and we had a blast. The weather was fantastic and everyone swam in the water while the guides whipped up an awesome lunch of chicken fajitas. Our guide "Creech" was top notch. We felt really safe with him, yet he made... More

My wife and 2 daughters, ages 27 and 14 all had never climbed. We are all athletic and in good shape. The guide was experienced and very helpful. We were all able to climb to the top on many difficult rocks. It was a great experience. If you are athletic you can do it. Matt

I've been on multiple trips with AVA and am very impressed! From booking to the actual trip everything was pleasant. The booking process was easy and the agents are friendly and very knowledgeable. The trips themselves were awesome! Every guide I've had has been amazing, you can tell they genuinely care about their rafters and are very knowledgeable about the... More

We did the Browns Canyon Express Trip. It was 3 adults and 4 kids ages 7-11. Just a quick note the minimum weight is 50lbs and they weighed the 7 year old who thankfully came in at 51 lbs! We booked our trip at the kiosk in Breckenridge. Thankfully I had already done my homework on TA and knew what... More

The 4 of us did the Brown Canyons Express 3/4 day trip with zip lining and the dinner meal. Everything was perfect. The Whitewater rafting was with an experienced guide, Angie, who was wonderful and knew her stuff, the zip lining through the trees with Peter and Joe was a real experience and very safe and finally the dinner meal...

Our trip ranks on the top 3 best memories out family has. The guides were an extremely organized team and the lunch provided were super satisfying! I would absolutely recommend the full day trip it you'll miss the best rapids. Our guide Terry tactfully managed the raft with upmost safety in mind, but still managed to make the trip fun... More

My daughter and I took this trip. It was a blast with the best guide!! He made it a lot of fun. Our safety was paramount with them. Their office staff/organization is sketchy. You might be sitting around waiting on other people for a LONG time -- not AVA's fault but unfair to other attendees. So if you book it... More

This is my 3rd time rafting with AVA! 3 years in a row now. Tour guides are awesome every time! But don't forget they are one of the only companies to do a real lunch! In 3 years I have heard horror stories about other companies and I always refer them to AVA. I have always felt safe the entire... More
