Awesome trip. My family enjoyed it from the 6 yro to the oldest in the group. We were hoping to sneak another trip on the last day of our trip but time did not permit. We highly recommend to others who are beginners and new to rafting. The crew there make you feel safe and well entertained. we hope to... More

Our guide was very experienced and made us feel very safe. The lunch he prepared on the river was delicious and the presentation was awesome. Thanks Zach and Brown's Canyon Rafting!

Did a half day trip with a buddy of mine who owns his own raft. It was a great day on the river while it was running very high. If you don't have access to a private raft, I suggest using Wilderness Aware Rafting. We used them in the summer od 2011 and had a great guide and great trip.... More

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
