We had a great time rafting down Browns Canyon. It was our first time and our guide Robbie was terrific at showing us the ropes. This group was professional and fun-we highly recommend them! We would go to them again!

We did a half day trip that was about an hour and a half, which was perfect. Our guide Tom was great. He told us exactly what to do and I was never nervous. There was only 2 of us and we had our own boat. Tom told us information about the river and the area around it. He made... More

This was my first time rafting and I could not have been happier! The guide, Luis, was happy to accommodate our group of seven (even though we had made our reservations separately). Luis took great care with us since our group included two teenagers and one small child, none who had rafted before. Luis walked us through the safety requirements... More

We had a group of five friends that went for half day rafting trips on 2 consecutive days. The guide, the weather and the river were different from one day to the next, but both days were great. The staff at Browns Canyon were all professional, but very friendly. They made everything fun, but were able to communicate all the... More

This was a fantastic experience -- my first white water rafting experience. Bear was a wonderful guide. He was great with the kids, personable, extremely experienced and capable. I was a bit apprehensive after hearing the mandatory spiel on the bus, but Bear made this safe and fun. He really engaged with my grandkids, too, and made them feel safe... More

We traveled to Denver from Minnesota to visit a friend and decided to try out white water rafting. We initially booked the Clear Creek trip, but Byron called and asked if we would be willing to try out the numbers trip in Buena Vista for a discounted price due to lack of bookings at Clear Creek. We decided the drive... More

What a great place. The staff is super friendly and their dogs are adorable. From the moment you arrive, they make you feel so welcome and work with you to ensure that you have a great time. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure your entire party is ready so they can pack you up and take... More

This was our first rafting experience and we loved it! Patrick was a great guide and was absolutely wonderful with the kids that were in our group. They were also very accommodating of my dad with his bad shoulder, they made it so that he would enjoy the trip immensely also. We will definitely take a rafting trip with BCR... More

Had a wonderful time on the Arkansas river doing a category III rapid with my kids (ages 7 & 9). I was a little nervous, but felt like they went out of their way to make me feel comfortable with the kiddos onboard. They had a separate guide on another boat following us down the river. I can't say for... More

Family of four had a great experience on the Arkansas River at Browns Canyon with The Adventure Company. Shane was our raft captain; he was very knowledgeable, personable and made it an exceptional experience. The whole team at the The Adventure Company did a fantastic job; always with fun and safety in mind! Along with his fellow captain, Mike, Shane... More
