      Best raft trip on the Arkansas!
      I may have reviewed this one before but it is so great, I felt the need to review it again. This is a wonderful trip. Small company that does a wonderful job of expediting the management of the raft trip and getting you through the canyon safely. Adam is simply the best. When you are going through the canyon and the other rafting companies are floundering all around you, you will be glad you went with Monumental Expeditions!

      Small Rafting Company with more years of experience than most big rafting companies
      With so many rafting companies to choose from we chose Monumental because we new the guide (also the owner), has 25 years of rafting experience. Can’t imagine anyone else knows the river as well as he does. Plus he’s knowledgeable and fun! With the water running high you want to be safe so call and ask for Adam. You won’t be disappointed! We had a blast and felt very safe!

      My girlfriend and I had a great time on this rafting trip. Seth, our guide was very Friendly and knowledgeable. All equipment was provided, including a splash jacket for the cold water. Highly recommend this Rocky Mountain adventure.

      Beautiful and Exciting!!
      Our family thoroughly enjoyed the float. It was perfect for our two kids, ages 8 and 10, and exciting enough for us parents as well. The scenery was beautiful and getting to jump off the little cliff added some extra fun! The guide was super cool and his knowledge of the surrounding area and nature made the trip more interesting. I definitely recommend rafting with these guys if you're looking for someone to get you onto the water!!

      Whitewater trip of a lifetime!
      My wife and I took a camping trip out west in Sept of 2023. We were hoping to do some nice whitewater rafting while out west. My wife found Monumental Expeditions on line. We booked a trip with Adam, guide and owner of the company. He and his wife are owners of the company together. They were both very friendly and easy to work with. We had an amazing ride down the Arkansas river with Adam. He was very knowledgeable and in control the whole trip. I would definitely do this trip again and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an amazing whitewater trip with beautiful scenery on both sides.

      Look no further- these are your guides!
      The guides are great! They give you everything you need. They are very informative as you go through the Canyon and see lots of different things. I have gone at 3 different times of year and it has always been fun!

      Always the best rafting Co
      If you enjoy a small group, good equipment, and knowledgeable guides then use this rafting company. They are flexible and extremely easy to work with.

      It’s who you ride with
      A boat is a boat, for the most part they all float. Your guide is what names the trip an adventure or just down the river. Browns canyon is beautiful, a trip you won’t regret. Our guide, Free, was awesome, truly a guide who loves what he does. He knew everything about the history of the area. It’s the guide you ride with that makes the difference.

      Last minute get away
      Adam and Lisa took great care of us. Adam was an excellent guide and so down to earth. He gave us great instructions prior to starting and made sure everyone felt safe and ready to have fun. He even took pictures as we floated, thank you. Do this trip with this company. A great smaller company with a family feel. We will be back next year for some bigger water!!

      Late season trip!
      We were lucky to get a last season trip for Browns Canton with Adam. Even though there were only two of us and a low water level Monument Expeditions kept our appointment. We got our own private raft trip. Great friendly guide and smooth transaction. Thanks for a fun weekend trip!

      A memorable experience!
      If you’re considering a rafting adventure, I highly recommend this company. Our guide, Adam was very professional, providing thorough safety guidelines and instructions prior to our journey. The scenic beauty through Browns Canyon National Monument was inspiring and the whitewater action was exhilarating; truly a memorable experience. Thank you Adam!

      Family Fun
      I scheduled our trip about 2 weeks before our adventure. The process could not have been easier. We have a family of 5 with ages ranging between 55 and 22. We did have two in our group reluctant for this adventure. Our guide, Seth, put everyone at ease. At this time of year, the rapids aren’t too intimidating yet enough to get the adrenaline flowing. The scenery in Browns Canyon can’t be beat. Seth, was the best. We have been on a number of rafting trips, but never have received the detail of rowing properly to save your back (especially for those of us over 50). I highly recommend for anyone or family of any ages to give Monumental Expeditions a call. Create a memory!! Thank you Seth!

      Memorable Family Experience
      A WONDERFUL experience from the original reservation process, staff patience in answering several questions before THE day, and quick, efficient check-in, equipment issue and eventually turn-in. Miller was our guide -- he is SUPER!! Personable, knowledgeable and professional -- he made the experience memorable for 3 generations of our family. Thank you, Miller!!

      Great Rafting trip!
      It was a great rafting trip with lots of beautiful scenery, great August river conditions and our guide was the best - ask for Seth! We had a lot of fun and would definitely do it again.
