Best rafting company in Colorado. Experience guides that made the trip fun and worry free. We had Kelly as our guide who has 15 years experience in the Arkansas River. She also had many years of experience on other Rivers throughout the world. We certainly could tell that she knew what she was doing.

This was an awesome white water rafting experience. It’s a small company, so it almost felt like a private tour of the river. Free was a great guide- he made sure we had fun while also teaching us how to efficiently raft the river. 100% would do it again!

My 13-year-old daughter and I took the Brown's Canyon half-day trip in June of 2022. It was just the 2 of us and our guide, Free. It was an amazing experience and he was n excellent guide. We opted not to take the oar frame, so this made it more challenging and exciting for us. Free taught us the proper way to raft and also gave us some thrills. I highly recommend Monumental Expeditions and this trip.

Signed up solo for a half day brown’s canyon and joined just 1 other couple and our guide Adam. We had such a great experience that we all decided to do royal gorge half day together the next day. Royal Gorge was my favorite! Being a smaller company, I was super happy with the personalized experience. Adam went above and beyond for us so we had the best experience the river had to offer which is not something the bigger companies are able to accommodate. Comparable prices to other companies, however, anything you need is included (rain jacket/booties/helmet/PFD/etc.) and the personal experience is incomparable! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a memorable rafting day.

We had an amazing two days overnight on Browns Canyon! Fresh in from Amsterdam with our family of four (two daughters 11 and 12) we thoroughly enjoyed the river, the views, the hikes and the great food. Adam and Michael brought a gear raft with all our camping gear and amazing food for lunches and dinner. We camped in a beautiful spot and were all taken care of. The river was amazing, clear full of rapids and white water with just the right amount of excitement and Adam with his experience guided us trough it amazingly and told us a lot about what we saw in the meantime. We also did some short hikes/climbs up to see the canyon from above. Thank you Adam and Michael: we loved it!
