We did the 1/2 day trip through Brown's Canyon. What an adventure! The rapids were fast enough and continuous enough to be exciting, but not so much to freak us out. We've done other Colorado raft trips, and this ranks at the top. The staff and guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

This was my third time using American Adventures but the first time in Buena Vista! Great company and great guides. My boyfriend had never been rafting and he had so much fun that we already booked another trip in August! You won't regret it!

My 7 year old daughter and I recently took a rafting trip in Brown's Canyon. We had an amazing experience! Mark was our guide and he was very friendly, patient, and understanding. This was our first time rafting so we were not too sure of what to do, but Mark was a great guide and taught us everything we needed... More

We had a great experience with AAE! They were professional and clearly take the risks seriously. They did a great job preparing us for the challenge of The Numbers. Our guide Levi was amazing; he was calm and fun to be around, but also extremely knowledgeable! I felt safe and had a great time on the class IVs!!

We took 3 of our teenage kids out for the day and had a great time! Dugan, our guide, kept us entertained with little factoids about the river, the landscape, and other random things. When he didn't know a fact, he made it up. The kids were totally engaged and everyone had a great time.

What an amazing experience with these guys! A group of friends and I rode The Numbers on the Arkansas River last Saturday. We had two newbies in our group of six who were a little nervous about their first experience. The folks at American Adventure Expeditions made sure to address any concerns and they were both excited to get started... More

We had a great experience and lots of fun. Cupcake aka Robbie was an excellent guide. He kept us laughing. We made a lot of memories and would love to go again. One more shoutout to the cutest guide on the river! #TRIPPLEV's

For my first time on a guided rafting ride I was a bit scared of falling out. But once we got going, it was the most fun thing I have done. Our guide was so good at what he does, the ride was nothing but fun and noone fell out!
