My husband, 10 year old grandson and I did the half-day Brown River Canyon rafting trip. Beautiful canyon! Levi was our guide, and he was wonderful. At no time did we feel unsafe and his instructions were clear throughout the trip. He was conscious of our grandson at all times while still allowing us to perform some fun maneuvers. After... More

Beau, our guide, was awesome. We did tricks that none of the other boaters were doing. He let us know ahead of time what to do thus making it more enjoyable. The scenery was beautiful.

We did the royal gorge 1/2 day trip. It was a lot of fun Jon was a great guide. I felt like the trip was a little short. but that isnt necessarily a bad thing. I was getting cold towards the end. the water felt great!

Had 2 boats full of ages 12-48 and had a GREAT time! Wonderful guides.. Great scenery, water was cold but had the splash guards and was borderline too warm.

Our trip down the river was quite the adventure! We had Beau as our guide and he was fantastic. Very energetic and knowledgeable. He made sure we had fun and that we were all safe, (especially Tami) ;) The scenery was breathtaking and we even got to see some big horned sheep along the way! Thanks for the adventure! We... More

Admittedly the weather wasn't the best when we started out. We had barely put in when it started raining. And that first splash of cold water between the legs was a real eye-opener. But what made the trip was our guide Levi. I've been on a couple dozen rafting trips and he is in a class by himself. He kept... More

My boyfriend and I went white water rafting with Beau on my birthday and it was an amazing time! Everyone was great considering we were running late for our trip but they waited for us understanding we made an 11 drive from Las Vegas (on a road trip). Everyone made me feel special on my birthday! The entire staff was... More

I had an amazing time white water rafting. I feel Beau was an astonishing tour guide. He was very knowledgable about the river itself, and he was excellent at communicating and making everyone feel they were apart of a once in a lifetime experience. Beau was full of inspiration, and great energy. Beau has some awesome stories. This trip gave... More
