Browns is a smaller rafting company and i think you get more personal attention. The guides were all personable and made the experience fun and safe. They spend a lot of time on safety instruction and making sure you are outfitted properly.

I've been on several rafting trips and this was the best. We did the full day numbers course and even though the water was low, our guide, Jason was phenomenal with the boat and keeping us entertained. I will definitely return next time I'm in CO and you guys are fortunate to have Jason as a guide.

Myself and two of my friends reserved inflatable kayak for half a day on the river. Our guide, Tom, was awesome! He knew EVERYTHING about the surrounding area. Everything from the peaks, rock formations, wildlife, and the history of the area. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!

My son (age 9) and I had a great time on an all day float trip on Aug 11. The guide (Jeremy) was a lot of fun and full of local information. The rapids were "enough" to entertain my kid and we felt involved in the process. Lunch was yummy too. Jeremy was nice to let my son jump out... More

Had Coner and Dan as our guides for a 3 day overnight rafting experience and they were terrific. The rafting was suburb. The guides were able to accommodate and make the trip fun for adults while still making sure the kids were safe.

Rafting was a blast. Guide was newer, but was great. My reason for writing this review was my big disappointment with the lady checking our group in and (helping us). The night before our trip I called to confirm and ask a few questions. She was very rude and short with me. I did not say anything to my group.... More

Our half-day trip with Brown's Canyon Rafting was a thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable experience! Our guides. Alison and Brian, were very friendly and very knowledgeable. They liberally shared their knowledge of the river and surrounding environment without detracting from being able to just enjoy the sights and the water. The river wasn't really fast for our trip but our guides... More
