For the last four summers, we have rafted with the Adventure Company and have had an amazing experience each year. They do a fabulous job, with superb equipment, excellent, experienced guides (this is a key point), who are also fun and personable, and an emphasis on both fun and safety. Everyone is very friendly and they do a great job of making you feel comfortable and "in good hands". Highly, highly recommend TAC.

This was the 2nd time my husband and I have rafted the Arkansas River with The Adventure Company, but the 1st with our 3 children (ages 13, 10 & 9). Absolutely wonderful! We choose a 2 day with 1 overnight trip. Both my husband and I were impressed with the safety, experience, and knowledge that our guide(James) brought to this trip. He definitely made it fun for our children. The food along the whole trip (2 lunches, 1 supper, & 1 breakfast) was delicious. We couldn't believe we were eating so well along the riverside! We had our own camping equipment; tent, sleeping bags, etc., however The Adventure Company does have everything that you would need available to rent. The office staff is extremely helpful and friendly. In fact, every person from The Adventure Company that we encountered was helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this trip with The Adventure Company if you are looking for an outdoor adventure for your family.

I believe the key word is "safety". I love adventure; however I also put a high value on safety. I was impressed from talking with the owner of The Adventure Company that his company only hire guides with at least four years on river experience. Our guide (Jeff) actually had over twenty years experience. In my opinion this is critical, especially in our case since we opted for a trip on “advanced” class 4 waters called “The numbers”. My wife by nature is a nervous type when trying something new. Five minutes into the rafting trip she was smiling and laughing. It was also reassuring to have a guide like Jeff with such a keen knowledge of almost every rock and crevice on the river.

We are already planning a trip next year to build up enough experience to eventually tackle the “expert” class 5 waters. However rest assured The Adventure Company offers trips for a wide variety of experiences. They have trips available for those two years and up in age and from two hours in duration up to seven days.

If you like FUN and also value safety then in my opinion The Adventure Company is "THE CHOICE".

Thanks to Jeff, Langdon, Mark, Melanie and Marji. My wife and I had a blast!!! We are looking forward to seeing you next year.

First time down the Arkansas River. We had a great time on the numbers and felt safe with Jeff as our guide. We are already planning another trip. The Adventure Company is a first class act!
