First time going water rafting in Colorado. There are a lot of companies that offer rafting trips in Browns Canyon, and I CANNOT recommend The Adventure Company enough!! From check-in, to safety walk through, all through the rafting trip, The Adventure Company met all of our expectations. Our raft guide was John Swan "Swanny" and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. He was very experienced with rafting and knowledgeable about the BV region in general. He had no shortage of jokes and made the trip very enjoyable for our whole family. He even took time after the trip to lay out fun activities for the whole family throughout the rest of our stay. All staff were very friendly and encouraging. The AC rents white water equipment for very cheap if you don't have proper attire. We went down about 10 very cool rapids and John had the technical expertise to guide us safely and swiftly through each. The ultimate fiesta feast for lunch was delicious and much better than you will get with any other rafting company. Thank you!! Definitely choose Adventure Company if you are planning on going rafting in the region.

First time going with The Adventure Company and first time rafting in a long time for me and first time for my teens. I called to ask some questions and their call center staff was nice, informative, and helped me understand all I needed to know. I called back shortly and booked for me and my kids. It was just over an hour drive from Breck. We were welcomed by Swan (the knowledgeable, skillful, comedic guide extraordinaire) and Valdez (the 20 yr veteran guide) who would spend the next 5 hours making this a great experience for us all. We were partnered with a couple so 5 to our raft and the rest went in the second raft. Before you know it, we were in the water and headed down the Arkansas and into Browns Canyon. The first few miles were just ripple water so you got to practice a little and get the hang of things. Then you cross under the gateway bridge and hit it with your paddle for good luck and the real fun begins. We had rain the day before and the water was running just perfect volume. The rapids were just the right balance of fun and thrills but also manageable for first timers. At the half way point we pulled to the shore and they prepared a nice lunch of salad, chips and salsa and fajitas! That was one of the selling points for me and didn’t disappoint! Swan toured us outside this camp to walk off the lunch showing us the remnants of an old gold mining operation that the river had since reclaimed and was now just ruins. Then, back in the water for the rest of our rapids adventure.

I can’t say enough about this outfit. Swan had us laughing the whole time while telling us all about the geography and history of this gorgeous national monument (declared in 2015). Both guides were all about safety and professionalism and did everything they could to make this a wonderful day and a fun time for me and my kids. Highly recommend!

Aweaomw day with ROSS! We had an all-ages group and it was a great day. The kids loved it and the adults enjoyed the gorgeous scenery. Highly recommend! Ross also took the time to engage with the kids and teens which was much appreciated. Watch out - you may have created some future river guides!♥️

Our family of 6 (2 parents and our sons age 13, 17, 21, 23) did the Full Day rafting trip last week. This was our first time to do river rafting and were looking forward to this being the highlight of our vacation. We were impressed with the TAC check in and prep, the bus ride and the friendly and helpful people working there. The scenery was beautiful. What was a great disappointment for us and something we are still talking about is how our guide was rude to us many times through out the trip. For some reason she did not jive with us and pretty much told us we were really bad at this activity. It was uncomfortable for about half of our day trip. We even overheard her talking negatively about us to other guides during the lunch. We are a nice, fun, friendly family .. decently athletic, fit and smart so was surprised that we were being scolded so many times for being so horrible. Maybe she was having a bad day,. At one point, my husband was about to say forget it and said let us out here if you think we are so bad! None of us fell out or over turn (like she said we would do), made it down the river just fine ... before the other 3 rafts, I might add. The other rafts/guides/families were all joking, high-fiving, laughing through out the trip .. not us! We did enjoy the beautiful scenery, the TAC guides did do a good job with the lunch and entertaining everyone on the bus ride and during the trip. We are looking forward to another river rafting trip in the future but hopefully with a guide that likes us.

My family of four did this tour, kids ages 8 and 12. The day was exciting and fun. Our guide, Kotty, did an excellent job not only keeping our family safe but also providing many details about the history of the area.
The boys had an excellent time and asked to go again the next day.

The other guides in our group were were very friendly and knowledgeable about rafting. The group leader, Swanie, was very energetic and hilarious. He kept the bus ride exciting.

My family would definitely recommend this trip.

We brought a group of 27 Scouts and adults and the Adventure Company exceeded our expectations for quick gear issue, quality instruction, and top notch guides. This company goes all out to make sure your group has a blast! Everyone loved their river guides (I had Brody and he gave us a terrific ride through the rapids!) who were knowledgeable about the area around Browns Canyon and skillful throughout the entire course. I just can't say enough about how this experience was enhanced by the quality program, gear, and staff of the Adventure Company--you're the best!

We had an absolute blast on the rapids! Our group included 4 adults, 2 18 year olds and a 14 year old and everyone raved. Squirrel was amazing! He was funny, had great information on the terrain and was a blast on the water. We had a great stop for lunch with fajitas and salad that was delicious. They were very safe with the Covid protocols and most importantly we all stayed in the boat. This is one of the best family events you can do!!

It was so much fun! Our guide Kara was amazing. She did a perfect job instructing us on how and when to paddle and navigated us expertly through the obstacles in the river. Safety was a top priority. The fajita lunch the crew made was delicious and there was plenty of food. This is a smaller rafting company that takes great pride in their service. Highly recommend!!

The Adventure Company has great guides, ours was Kara. I wanted to experience a great family vacation that the kids would remember forever and I think rafting will do that for us. Kara help make the rafting fun and was great a navigating through rapids, she would have us paddle at all the right times so all we had to do was enjoy our trip and not worry.

Lucas Miller is an artist on the water. My friends and I had never been rafting and he made us feel like the most expert team on the river. Lucas is on the river to encourage personal and outdoor growth no matter your skill level or experience.
