Noah's Ark Colorado Rafting & Aerial Adventure Park
#3 of 20 Tours in Buena Vista
However, we all agreed that some tours make it feel like an assembly line, whereas Noah's Ark makes it feel like a personal and special experience.
Tour guide Suzy from Charlotte NC was fantastic, she made the voyage so much more interesting and enjoyable with her humor and history of the river/area...

While in Breckenridge, we also did a horseback ride, mine tour, ghost tour, road the alpine coaster, and ziplined—by far the rafting trip was everyone’s favorite activity.
Then our tour guide Sunnie whipped up a delicous warm steak/chicken fajitas with veggies, salad, fruit and even sang "happy bday" to my husband who was celebrating his 50th that day!

Wilderness Aware Rafting
#5 of 20 Tours in Buena Vista
Tour Guide--we met our guide, Tony, who originally hails from the great state of Wisconsin but has been leading river tours for over nine years now.
Our guide Jesse was so great and so much fun; he was as much a rafting instructor as he was a tour guide; since throughout the trip he kept telling us comments about all the places we saw.

Browns Canyon Adventure Park
#6 of 20 Tours in Buena Vista
We had an awesome time at the adventure park! Dylan was a knowledgeable tour guide and was also great with our nine year old daughter.
My family and I had an amazing time I’m pretty sure Robyn was the best tour guide ever she knew what she was doing and helped us throughout the whole thing.

Browns Canyon Rafting

Matt was also out guide for the day, and I felt very fortunate - he flat out knew the river, was able to get us in position efficiently, and provided a great tour with commentary all down the river.
We had Molly as our tour guide and while my family was very inexperienced, Molly did a great job at coaching us through everything and getting us rapid ready in a matter of 5 minutes.

Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center
#9 of 20 Tours in Buena Vista
We especially enjoyed Rocky Mtn because we had a one raft tour instead of the common train, and, with four of us, they used a smaller more agile raft than is the common thing.
We rode in a van adequate for any guided tour then hiked about 75 yards to the base of the rocks.

You always get nervous when booking guided tours but after this experience, we’ll make sure we ask for Shawn next time.
I tried to book other's but other tour operators only had limited Class IV tours.

Also, in the heat of summer...it would've been nice to have a chance to float in the river a few minutes while holding onto the raft (as I have done on other rafting tours).
I have tried other local companies like Performance Tours, but they just provide a so-so raft trip.

Best guides, tour and a delicious lunch!
... with the other companies, but AT takes you further down the river, resulting in two more awesome rapids and around two more miles total distance when you decide to go for the half-day Browns Canyon rafting tour.
