We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our guide J. Lee was incredibly knowledgable, fun and experienced and he made the trip well worth every penny! We're headed back next june to take on the Level V!

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

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

Small group ranging from mid twenties to thirties, ended up in raft with family of teens on 1/2 day Browns Canyon Trip.
