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

This company was so friendly and accommodating right from the start. I was impressed with how the operation ran, and how smoothly everything went for us. We went on a half day trip with Ross as our guide. He was so personable and knowledgeable on the area. Not only did we have a great time, but we learned a lot... More

We had a great experience with Mike and Ross and will definitely be coming back! The guides were super entertaining and nice. I appreciated most that the guides here are required to have 4 years of guide experience. Between experience and clear instruction, we felt very safe on our whitewater rafting trip.

My 9 year old daughter had a blast and wants to do it again. I would recommend this company to anyone visiting the Buena Vista area and... More

BUT it turned into much more. Our Guides Jerry and John made us their complete focus, with patients and thorough instruction they developed... More

I have been whitwater rafting in Wyoming, Alaska, and Pennsylvania. This is by far the best company out there. John was our guide and was incredible. We went on the full day Numbers trip, which included a fajita lunch. The lunch was great. Where we stopped to eat lunch was common place for other companies to stop and have lunch.... More
