This was our second trip with TAC. Did the class 3 Brown canyon trip. Allen was our guide this time. Always felt safe and had a blast. We were on the river for a little over an hour, but it was an all day trip coming from Keystone. The bus picked us up at the condo at 9:30 and we... More

Traveling with a 3 year old and 6 year old, I was extra cautious in selecting my river trip. We chose the milk run offered through Adventure Company and were so happy we did. The 4 mile float took about 45 minutes and offered just enough white water to provide thrills, but was calm enough for a nervous 3 year... More

Just returned from an all day rafting trip with The Adventure Company. - 100% Professional - Top quality gear - Rafting guides all have to have multiple years of experience before they work for this company. NOTHING BUT THE BEST! - Fantastic hot lunch prepared by the guides. - Logan and Jerry made the day for our family FUN -... More

This is my second multi-day trip with TAC, and I'm ready to book a third. My partner Neal and I had Kara as our guide (I'm gonna botch their names), Kristin as second-in-command, Kawyen ("Quinoa") for jokes around the fire pit, Brant and Ross and Mike on campsite duty. But all five guides went out of their ways to make... More

We were staying in Keystone, but TAC had a bus come pick us up from our condo and bring us to their place. We were fitted for wetsuits, jackets, helmets, etc. They fed us lunch and then we hopped onto another bus and made our way to the launch. Whitewater rafting is pretty awesome by nature, but our guide, Kara,... More

Very pleased with our rafting experience. First time for our family to white water raft. Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable. This is the primary reason we chose adventure vs. another local company and we were not disappointed. He did an excellent job of explaining not only the safety rules but how we were to row and all the... More

The Adventure Company is hands down the best place to reserve your Rafting Trip through. They hire only experienced Raft Guides, their equipment and wet suits are new and clean and not all funky like you tend to get with other Rafting Companies. We did a class 3 raft trip on Sat. June 13th, 2015 and it was really EXCITING,... More

The guides were super fun, and knowledgeable. They got us through every feature with finesse, ultimately avoiding losing anyone or capsizing; we did not even have to high side. The gear there is very nice, an overall-style wetsuit with a splash jacket that goes over that (plus booties and gloves are available), and on top of that there's your PFD... More

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.
