Booking to checkin was great. They kept the 4th of July crowds moving along. Mississippi (Matt) was our guide. We loved him! Safety was the first priority, fun was the second priority, and Mississippi kept both going the whole time. He was always polite and considerate. The scenery was stunning and the experience was unforgettable.

This was our first time rafting and it was not short of incredible! We decided to do the full day numbers river and it lived up to our expectations. Our tour guide, Dan, made sure everyone paddled and sat in each of the seats (front/back/middle) as well as thoroughly entertained us the entire day. Everything was so organized from the... More

The rapids ranged from I-IV and the best was the Stairs and Widowmaker. Paul was very informative and explained the history and shared stories with us. Paul also... More

What a grand time had rafting Brown's Canyon with Mississippi as our guide! His knowledge of the river along with his incredible personality and fabulous outlook on life, made our trip unforgettable! His attention to my two young children was unsurpassable too...they have not stopped talking about him! Thank you so much Mister Sippi :) Padraig and Pyper thank you... More

First day we went on the family float just to see how my handicapped sister would handle the water and she did great. We also had a great guide, Noah. He then convinced us that she should be fine on the regular rafting trip so we did that on the second day and had a blast. The water was great... More

We had Dean "Sasquatch" (sp?) as a guide & he was awesome. We only had 3 people, so he had a set-up in which he used oars so we wouldn't have to work so hard. Personally, I wanted to work harder, but definitely next time! Dean was very knowledgeable about the history & the wildlife around us. With a little... More

This was our family's first rafting experience. We all loved it. Our guide, Jason, gave great instruction and was very knowledgeable. We maneuvered through some tough rapids with his great guidance. I highly recommend the Brown Canyon rafting trip. It is a great ride with beautiful scenery. We did the 14 mile, 3/4 day trip and are so glad we... More
