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.

This trip was a lot of fun. I went with my dad and we had a lot of fun. The water was low so we didn't have a ton of whole body splashes. Of course that was not the company's fault. But other than that...More
