“Arkansas River”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Our family has floated Browns Canyon, the Numbers and the royal Gorge numerous times since the late 90's with Dvorak ... In comparison we have rafted the white waters of the Nontoheala in North Carolina and the Yellowstone... The Arkansas and Dvoraks are simply unmatched when it comes to the best... Our family can't wait to get back.

“Great Rafting Trip down Brown's Canyon”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We received a Living Social deal for a Brown's Canyon rafting trip with Dvorak's and decided to give this small outfit a try. We arrived a little early and were expecting more people but some of the other parties were late (due to a traffic issue) so our guide Mateos (sp?) went ahead and fit us in our safety gear, gave us our safety brief and we loaded up. The launch site was only a few minutes away. After a little paddling practice, we walked the raft down to the river and took off. The first few miles allowed us to practice our paddle form and other commands. Then we finally got to some fun (but manageable) rapids mixed with some really beautiful scenery down the river. I've been on a rafting trip with a large outfit out of Canyon City and I much preferred the personal service from Dvorak and the scenery of Brown's Canyon (to floating down right beside HWY 50). Dvorak was a better value too! Our guide was very knowledgeable and he ensured a safe and fun rafting trip. They also offer a multitude of other trips for those who are interested. [For those who want to know - there are porta-potties at Dvorak's and bathrooms available at the launch site (at least for Brown's Canyon).] I would highly recommend giving this small outfit a try - you won't be disappointed.

“So happy chose Dvoraks.”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Our first time visiting Colorado with our two sons and white water rafting was on our to do list. After researching many options, we made plans for a day trip with Dvoraks and so glad we did. Not only were the guides very safe and competent, the office was very accommodating when a flight delay made it impossible for us to make our originally scheduled trip. Our guide Nate was awesome and made it a trip to remember. This is the rafting company to go with!

“They bend over backwards!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Just finished a 3 day kayak instruction + rafting trip with my son. We had such a great time and the guides were amazing! Because of weather and a few other factors we my son and I kept changing what we wanted to do and they had absolutely no problem with it - they were flexible with everything and just made sure that we were happy. Our guides were Mathias and Jim and they are awesome - will definately ask for them next time we go back.
