We had a group and they served food afterwards which was delicious, homemade potato salad, chicken and burgers, try some black bean burgers, for the non-meat eaters, just mashed black beans, egg to hold it together, onions, cumin, salt, pepper. One negative to the whole experience, they had a guy taking photos from the river bank, great photos but not... More

Browns Canyon rafting staff were great! Very friendly and personable. We loved our tour guide, she had a lot of energy and was a great leader. This was my first time rafting. The water was higher so we got to enjoy some really intense waves. Would definitely recommend going here for your rafting adventure!

Surprised my girlfriend with a kayak private lesson and it turned into one of the best adventures we've ever had! The staff was super friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. We got exactly what we wanted out of the trip and then some. The lesson started with all the fundamentals in a pond, followed by some real action on a class III... More

We had never whitewater rafted until this trip. The staff was amazing, making sure all our questions were answered and that we chose the correct trip for us. Our guide, Zach, was an expert (he also does trips in Costa Rica) and made sure we were all having fun and safe. Absolutely would go again!

Being a newbie to rafting we had no idea what to expect or even what to wear. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at ease right from the start. The weather was horrible and we got very cold but you can only blame timing for that. Raft, equipment and staff were first-rate.

I have rafted with Brown's several times over the past few years and always had a blast. Equipment is good, and guides are great. I was starting to think about booking for this summer and was perusing through reviews. Mostly everyone seems to agree with me. I saw one negative and can only conclude that it was an unfortunate aberration.

I like to have fun so I thought rafting would be a fun activity to try. It's a little late in my writing of this review, but I just signed up for another trip there this coming summer with my friends so I decided to tell everyone what a great time I had. I highly recommend rafting there. The staff... More
