My daughter and I had a blast with three CO rafting trips booked through TAC. The TAC personnel helped us determine a great rafting progression for the 3 different days. The guides were excellent and the rapids were a lot of fun. Some other people who were supposed to go with us on the 3rd trip cancelled at the last... More

Last week we went on a 1/2 day Browns Canyon rafting trip with TAC. Everything was easy and enjoyable-from the free coffee/tea/hot chocolate and complimentary granola bars that welcomed us in the foyer to the check-in process, to the wetsuit and splash jacket rental. Staff was great. Ross (squirrel) was the guide for raft my wife, young daughters and I... More

We wanted some exercise and to learn how to paddle and have Exciting rapids! The trip did all of that. in addition... More

From the driver to the onsite office team to the guides we received pleasant knowledgeable agents of The Adventure Company (TAC).

Best raft trip ever! Our guide Alan was awesome - so professional, very focused on safety and had a ton of experience! We had soooo much fun! We were taught how to work together and we all had a blast. Perfect trip from start to finish with beautiful scenery and a company who knows how to do things right. Alan... More

The Adventure Company was a 'class act' from the beginning. Quick paperwork, fitting for gear (no worries if you don’t have water shoes, they have those to borrow as well), and a short bus ride (thanks Steve) to start our destination. 7 women friends from MN set sail with Logan, the best guide ever! We loved his humor, patience and... More

Took my parents and young children 6, and 8 on the Browns Canyon 1/2 day trip. This was our first time, so I was a little nervous doing the intermediate level trip, but it turned out just fine, I felt completely safe and everyone enjoyed the trip. I requested a "oar-frame" raft which meant that we did not paddle, just... More

Had an incredible time rafting on The Numbers of the Arkansas River. Our guide - Creed - was amazingly knowledgeable about the river. He was a decisive, confident leader, and I felt we navigated a very technical section of the river quite well, despite this being my first trip on a highly technical class 4 river. The package we had... More
