A few friends and I went rafting at Brown's Canyon Rafting Company. Zack did an excellent job getting us down Numbers. We had a great time and would do it again! I have actually been to this company for 2 years in a row and I would suggest it to anyone.

My daughter and I had a blast doing the numbers trip. Spencer was our guide and he was excellent ! He explained everything that we needed to know for safety and made the trip so much fun. I would highly recommend Browns Canyon rafting for a fun and safe day. Will definitely be back!

Brought my wife, 12 year old son and 9 year old daughter. Kids never rafted before, so we were "cutting their teeth". Browns Canyon half day was perfect for us. Right mix of scenic floating with up to class 3 rapids. 9 and 12 year old did great. Chose this company becase price seemed right and reviews were good. We... More

A group of us were in Buena Vista for my bachelorette weekend. We decided to make the Browns Canyon half day rafting trip part of our active weekend. We had to drive in from Denver Friday morning to make the 1pm tour time. Unfortunately, with some poor planning on our part, but mostly bad traffic and construction, we weren't going... More

We were skeptic of the motley crew that greeted us at Brown's Canyon rafting but Zack won us over easily. His witty humor was a great addition to his skillful maneuvering of the NUMBERS. Thank you and we will return!

Went with a group of 4 friends. All but one of us had been rafting before but not in this area. We had high hopes for this trip due to the Arkansas River being a premier spot to raft, and we were not let down! The staff was great throughout the entire process. Very friendly, knowledgeable and always had a... More

We wanted a little more adventure on duckies. So our guide (Brian aka 'Papa Duck' who was awesome) took us down Browns Canyon. You have to request the trip - they want to make sure they aren't taking beginners down the canyon. Highly recommend it! The canyon was challenging enough to get our adrenaline going while still having a few... More

My kids age 14 and 7 and I had never been rafting before and so it was with some trepidation that we decided to go for our very first during our trip to Colorado. We booked a full day trip which included lunch. Our experience was wonderful. Most if not all the credit for this goes to our excellent guide,... More
