The folks at The Adventure Company are great! We booked a raft trip down the Colorado river for a party of ten, including my 4 year old daughter and 71 year old mother in law. The office staff were very responsive and friendly and got everything set up quickly and accurately. Our guides met us at the pick up point... More

My family of four adults recently rafted Browns Canyon on the Arkansas River for a full day with TAC guides Shane and Mike. I can only echo what others have already said. It was a great experience with two good guides who made the day fun and safe. This was our first rafting trip; and we'll definitely be back for... More

Only being in Colorado for the summer I wanted to make the most of it and this experience certainly added to it. The whole experience was nothing but amazing. Our tour guide, Nick (I hope I got it right), lead us through the numbers; Nick was not only fun and friendly but he was also professional, safe and made sure... More

This was the best rafting trip we've taken in Colorado. Our guide, Tyler, was very knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable. There were rapids, more rapids and more rapids. Such a great day .... Even in the rain! We'll definitely be back next time we come to Breckenridge.

We did a morning Numbers trip on the Arkansas with these fine folks. Everyone was exceptionally nice, professional and excellent. The gear was top notch, the location was clean and modern and they even had a Go Pro compatible helmet for my son. The guides were total pros, adding interesting history info along the way. This is the best guide... More

We had such a great day rafting with this outfitter. Our guide, Alan, was fantastic—made it fun and just the right amount of exciting for our group which had a ten year old, teenager and adults. Our package included wetsuits, lunch, the rafting trip and a CD of photos. So worth it!

I was at a family reunion in Breckenridge and booked a rafting trip with the adventure company. They picked us up right at our hotel, drove us out to the office, fed us lunch, gave us all our equipment, then drove us out to launch. Our guide was Eric, he told us he had 15 years of experience. He did... More

The team at TAC was absolutely fantastic--very upbeat, organized and informative. We enjoyed a great afternoon on the river with our guide. Safety definitely a priority here! We had a chance to talk with the owner and he explained why the wet suits do NOT have any order whatsoever. TAC spends over $1000.00 per year on special cleaning solutions to... More

Friends converged for 60th birthday and 8 of us wanted to raft. 2 novices and all had a thrilling ride down thru Brown's Canyon. Fabulous fun, excitement NOT terror. Quiggle expertly guided us through gorgeous scenery and fast white water. On the shutte over, Mark, our driver, heard me rave about a cheese I'd had in Breck that was made... More
