My wife and I went on a half day rafting trip with 2 other couples yesterday. What an amazing experience. Our river guide, Creed, was amazing!! He made us all feel comfortable and safe. He was entertaining and REALLY knows that river. We had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Our family of 5 had a Full Day River Rafting in the Arkansas River. This Company was like family to us. The guide was very experienced and friendly. Loved the homemade hot lunch by the river. Thanks!

Had a great time with The Adventure Company rafting in August. The water levels were lower, but we still had a great time since it was our first time white water rafting. Would definitely use the same company again on our next trip. Would love to see what those spring waters look like! Steve was our guide, he was very... More

I went on a full day rafting trip with my friend and her two kids with The Adventure Company with transport out of Breckenridge. We did the "Numbers" trip and had a great time. Our guide was very friendly! Their facility in Buena Vista is very nice. They have wetsuit rentals, changing rooms, restrooms, lunch (included), and a retail store.... More

Let me start by saying that booking Brown Canyon and taking the river trip was awesome! Great Service, great guide, super time! But, the story gets better when I received a phone call from the owner when I got back home that I might have lost something and to give him a call. I did, multiple days later ... and... More

My husband at were literally passing through Buena Vista on our way to Estes Park and decided to see if we could squeeze in a white water rafting trip. We stopped at a different outfitter first and they didn't have any room for us but they referred us to The Adventure Company. We walked in and the lobby was busy... More

I took the 1/2 day trip through Brown Canyon with 17 friends. Although it was late in the season, it was still fun. We were picked up in Breckenride Co. Our driver was on time and was very enjoyable. She stopped at the summit of Hoosier Pass and took pictures of our group. When we got to Buena Vista, The... More

We rafted the half-day through Brown's Canyon with Patrick as our guide. It was amazing! Patrick, or Patty as they called him, was wonderful. He was very informative and pointed out several interesting sights along the trip. We had my husband, myself, my 18-year-old daughter, her boyfriend, and my 15-year-old son with us. I was the only one who had... More
