We did this last year & came back again...Both times we had Levi as our guide. This is the best fun we've had by far! Beautiful scenery, a very knowledgeable guide makes for a fantastic trip!

Great memories of our trip- with 3 grandkids ages 5, 8, 10 and an adult who has motion sickness, there are NO problems on the trip! We did the 2 hour Browns Canyon trip with Dugan as our guide. Highly recommend it.

We had a great time on our half day Brown's canyon trip. Lower water levels meant some fun ripples! Make sure you take a leap from jump rock....very fun!

I highly recommend this place, all the employees are awesome and the rafting experience was great. They were the only company to allow us to bring our 5 year old and he loved it. They took us on a "family friendly" raft and Dugan our guide was super cool.

We took a ride with American Adventure Expeditions and our 2 grandchildren 6 & 8. Everything went perfectly including the weather and the 2 1/2 hour rafting trip down the Arkansas river was a blast. Things started out calm and then we took a few class 3 rapids. The kids were intrigued with the names of each rapid set. Worth... More

This was our family's (2 adults, kids 11 & 12) second time rafting with AAE. Last year we did the family float trip, as we had never rafted before. It was perfect. This year, we did the full day Brown's Canyon trip. Again, perfect. Both of the guides we've had (Matt, Katie) are really great. Not only are they knowledgeable... More

My husband and I, and our 9- and 11-year-old nephews, did an "intermediate" afternoon half-day trip from Buena Vista - and it was great. We were novices, but our guide made us feel very comfortable. The views were spectacular, and the level of rapids was exactly how it was described on the website. Patrick was our guide. He was very... More

Thank you to our guide, Matt (Go Red Wings!), for providing an excellent adventure for our family of four - 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 10 and 7). Matt was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided many facts about the river and its inhabitants. He was also quite safety-conscious, which was helpful to our kids, who had never... More
