We did the 1/2 day Brown's Canyon. Lots and lots of fun. It would have been great if the river was faster in a few parts, but then the kids might not have been able to go if the rapids were Class IV. Our guides were great. The lunch spread was the best I have ever had for any type... More

After researching rafting operators, Performance Tours seemed like a winner. They were fantastic! What a great choice. My whole bunch had a blast. Our guide, Zack, was the best, really fun but safe too. He knows Brown's Canyon down and back. He knew every approach to each rapid. Where other rafts were getting hung up we cruised right through! I'd... More

After much research, my family selected Performance Tours as they seemed to have more employee training than most outfits. This eased our minds since we had never rafted before and had a 11 year old son who was a bit apprehensive when it comes to high adventure. After speaking with the booking lady, she assured me that children as young... More

Took a half day white water rafting trip down the Arkansas River into Brown's Canyon. The scenery was amazing. It was a good mix between relaxing time on the raft and some exciting rapids. Our guide, Morgan, was very experienced, fun and knowledgeable. She also had utmost concern for our safety and the safety of other rafts. Took our nine... More

Turned out we were the only 2 scheduled for our raft trip and it was awesome. I like that Performance Tours had the "small" company feel. Our guide, Curt, was way cool and knew all the best ways to take us through the rapids to maximize our thrills and wetness.He also gave us a lot of information on the gorge... More

I was skeptical that I would be able to book a rafting tour at the last minute, but I tried anyway. I spoke with Beth and she was gracious on the phone, not only booking the perfect tour the next day (at a 20% discount), but accommodating a brief delay as I confirmed the plans with the rest of our...

We loved our rafting trip through Browns Canyon. The only thing that I might have wished for was that there were more rapids or that it had been longer. We did the half day trip. We went in August and it was cold at the end when the sun was covered in clouds...so definitely do a splash jacket or wet... More

We have used performance tours the past four years and they are amazing. The guides are thoughtful, yet work on safety and educating the customer. The check in process and reservation process is simple and bonus once your a returning customer you get 20% off your next trip. I highly recommend this company.

My husband and I were very pleased with Performance Tours. All of the employees were very helpful with questions and knowledgable about the river and the rapids. They took safety seriously but provided an enjoyable and fun experience also! Beau was our guide and I always felt that we were in competent hands. A great day out on the river!
