Great memories of our trip- with 3 grandkids ages 5, 8, 10 and an adult who has motion sickness, there are NO problems on the trip! We did the 2 hour Browns Canyon trip with Dugan as our guide. Highly recommend it.

We had a great time on our half day Brown's canyon trip. Lower water levels meant some fun ripples! Make sure you take a leap from jump rock....very fun!

My family and I just went on the full day Browns canyon trip, it was my second time and there first time(three girls and my wife, girls were 10,12,13). This company is top notch and makes you fell confident the entire time, and keeps it fun and safe. Everyone had a super time!! cant wait to go back again, only problem is I want bigger rapids now! Lol. Highly reccomend. Katie was our guide and couldnt have asked for a better guide. Only thing I regret is not buying all the pics.

Hi Shane, Thank you so much for taking out the time to give us such an amazing review! I'm so pleased to hear you and your family had a fun time rafting the Arkansas with us this summer, it's been such a great season and we are glad you were able to make it. Katie is outstanding guide, I am happy you really enjoyed her and your trip. Also Shane, have no regrets, your photos are on our website and you are able to purchase them as well if you would like. Just go to our sire Americanadventure.com and go to "photos" and enter in the date and stretch of water y'all ran that day and they should be there. Thanks again and if you need any help finding them just give us a shout!

I highly recommend this place, all the employees are awesome and the rafting experience was great. They were the only company to allow us to bring our 5 year old and he loved it. They took us on a "family friendly" raft and Dugan our guide was super cool.

We took a ride with American Adventure Expeditions and our 2 grandchildren 6 & 8. Everything went perfectly including the weather and the 2 1/2 hour rafting trip down the Arkansas river was a blast. Things started out calm and then we took a few class 3 rapids. The kids were intrigued with the names of each rapid set. Worth the money. Our guide Levi was awesome!!!!
