Went rafting for the first time with my best friend, we did the browns canyon half day trip and we're already planning a trip for next year. Our guide, John, was amazing. We plan on requesting him next time we're here!!

This was our first time white water rafting and we had a blast. We did the Brown Canyon half day trip and te water was a little low so we bussed farther down the river rather than leaving right from the site. We had a blast and Mississippi was a great guide!

River runners is probably one of the better companies in the area. This is the second year we have used them. Paul was our guide. He was very experienced and was an expert at guiding us down the river. We took the 1/2 day trip. Last year we did the 3/4 day and it seemed a little long, plus it... More

We took a 1/2 day family rafting trip with River Runners. What a wonderful day!! Mel was the perfect guide. She was engaging and very adept at managing us down the river. We've never been able to swim as much as we were on this trip. Along with the class 3 water, being able to hope out kept it very... More

Took the family, 5 children aged 12-7, on a 3/4 day rafting trip with River Runners. Rapids were probably a bit more than they could handle but Andrea was expert in guiding us along and the instructions were thorough. Great experience - this is the real deal.

The workers at River Runners were great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. My husband and I had a great time... however, when it was over we both thought, that was it? I expected rougher rapids. I expected it to be more intense. I was told that "The Numbers" was one of the most popular rapids to run so... More

Beautiful 1/2 day Browns Canyon (2 pm start) rafting trip, about 2-2 1/2 hrs long with a stop for those who wish to jump off rock into water (about 30 feet high) which even the youngest and oldest did (some twice). Our guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful as were all the guides and the staff in the check-in... More
