Six of my family members went on a three day rafting trip. Our guide Colin was THE BEST! We had three full days of rafting, we even all rock climbed for the first time! Three days was the perfect amount of time, unless you really love living outdoors.

My family group decided to do The Numbers with this outfitter, due to word-of-mouth plus excellent reviews. There are huge rafting outfitters all over the Arkansas. I'm glad we chose the smaller Browns Canyon Rafting for the personal attention, and for the following reasons: 1. Equipment: We were expertly fitted with wetsuits, booties, and splash jackets at the outset. (This... More

We went rafting with American Adventure Expeditions. It was fabulous. This is our third time with this outfitter and each time has been a blast. Spencer was our guide this year and he was AWESOME! This was only his second year as a guide and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. Thanks for a great time.

Hubbies went and guides were well trained! Byron was amazing and calm when one of the hubbies fell overboard...He lived to tell about the adventure. I recommend this company highly!

My family had a wonderful day rock climbing with Colin Padbury. Colin made us comfortable with his skill. He was very aware of our inexperience. He practiced safe climbing methods at all times. He prepared a nice lunch which included fresh fruit.

Had such a good time on our half day rafting trip. Our guide was professional, fun, and really knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend anyone looking to raft the Browns Canyon to use them!

We booked a half day trip with Browns Canyon Rafting last year and had such a great time we decided to return for an overnight rafting/rock climbing trip. However, my flight was unexpectedly canceled meaning we couldn't make the trip the day we originally planned. The crew here bumped it back a day like it was no problem at all,... More
