Our Family of Five went rafting on July 22nd this past week. We were first timers from Omaha, Ne. My husband, myself, and our three children ages 18, 17, and 12 were with us. We had the best time EVER! I was the most skeptical about the whole experience, but will tell you that I will go back a million... More

We took our two families, kids aged 9-18, for a full-day trip. Rivers are running high this year so a few of us were feeling a bit hesitant, while others were super excited for the adventure. Adventure Company makes it very clear that their first priority is safety so that put us more at ease. Our guides made the ride... More

This was our third year in a row to use the Adventure Company. We've used other companies in the past, but the Adventure Company takes out smaller groups and the guides are great! Nate was our guide this year-- very knowledgable, fun, and I felt that we were safe!

Reed is excellent at giving you a complete understanding of what to expect and keeping you involved during the trip. I found him seaking out more exciting opportunities while on the run which was a nice touch. Giving us the history and names of mountaines and wildlife was also an unexpected touch. He never sounded rushed and mirrored our personalities... More

We have done the 1/2 day river raft trip through Brown's Canyon the past six years and will do it again next year! Each year the trip is different depending on the water level. This year we had pretty high water and the rapids were intense. We had four adults and children as young as 8 - everyone had a... More

We had a wonderful experience with the Adventure Company. We rafted Browns Canyon. Our guide was terrific! We have 3 young children and we felt very safe taking them down the river with Class 2 & 3 rapids. We also had lunch prior to our rafting tour. It was delicious! I don't know how long it will take to remove... More

Thrilling, rip-roaring ride on the Arkansas!! The high-lite of our family vacation was the rafting/camping trip with The Adventure Company. Nick and Allen were our river guides along with Kawyn as the camp prep man. As a team, they provided our group of 10 with an AMAZING experience that I will always cherish (and can't wait to repeat.) Our raft... More

My family, all 14 of us, had the best time with The Adventure Company! The food was amazing and the best part was it was included in our package. The wet-suit package included CLEAN, well-maintained items and kept us warm and comfortable during the trip. We made so many great memories on the Browns Canyon trip and would recommend it... More

Outstanding, I hosted family members from out of state for for an overnite raft trip, they could not have been more impressed with the staff( especially the guides). Food was out of this world, dinner was better than most restaurants I've been to. All and all, choosing The Adventures company for this trip was the best decision I could have... More

Family of 4 rafted with The Adventure Company with their 3/4 da Brown's Canyon Rafting adventure-we had a BLAST! Positives: Exceptional guides. Ian was both fun but firm when it came to make sure we all had a fun, SAFE experience. Scenery is terrific. Had time to mingle and meet others who were doing the same trip. Very smooth and... More
