We have done quite a bit of "family friendly" rafting over the last couple of years and prior to this adventure, a rafting trip in Jasper (Canada) was no 1 trip for us. I have to say that the thrill factor for our Brown Canyon half day adventure was well above anything we had ever experienced.

What I liked: Meeting location right in Buena Vista. Very friendly staff. Takes security very seriously and will make sure that everyone has a great time. Great guide(s). Pretty short trip to drop-off point, marginally longer trip on the return. The tail end of this half-day tour is where all the action happens. Although you do get through a series of rapid rather quickly, they have been the most challening rapids I have experienced from a technical perspective - not dangerous - but very thrilling.

What to watch for/could be improved: The 1st half of the rafting tour is relatively slow and quiet and you really want to get things going.

All in, this is a highly recommended rafting tour in Colorado and Browns Canyon Rafting is a great company to do this activity with

I honestly cannot day enough good things about this trip. This was a last minute impulse and they happened to be the only company left open. It was the last trip of their season, and yet they still gave it their all. The instructors are definitely the best part. They’re hilarious and engaging and yet will call you out if you’re not pulling your weight (which is important in waters that can get kind of rough). Our guide was Monica (Mo) and she is a rockstar. She kept things funny and light and had a lot of fun knowledge about the place we were traveling through. She seemed to really love her job and really got to know the perils in her raft. It made the whole trip that better.

The trip itself is gorgeous and so much fun. There’s the perfect amount of suspense and light danger as our are going trough rapids. But you feel secure with your guide, and all the facts make sure to stay together and keep an eye on each other which helped with the feeling of safety.

You can tell that all the guides are friends and they’re roasting of each other was hilarious.

All in all this was probably the best purchase and activity that I have ever done and I will definitely be planning a return trip next summer just to go here.
Do yourself, your friends, your family, a favor and take one of these tours.

This is a great rafting company, the crew was fabulous.
We plan on returning in the in the spring when the river is higher. If you want an introduction for your young children, go in early fall when the river is low, there is just enough splash not to scare them

The ride was smooth (or as much as could be expected on a raft trip) and the guides gave some insight into the landscape and local history. Would love to come again and try a different stretch of the river.

We were glad to find a rafting company open this late in the season. We had a great time. Brown’s was easy to work with-great customer service. Evin was our guide. She was great. Lots of fun and knew what she was doing. I recommend the company and the trip.
