This was a great experience! A thrilling adventure through 7 different rapids that is exciting, but not dangerous due to the guides' knowledge and experience. We have been rafting in several different places now and this was definitely one of our favorites. Even in the midst of

So much fun! Felt really safe! Thomas/Tom/Tommy (? Don’t remember) was an awesome guide! Bobby/Tan Santa drove a mean bus, we appreciated an extra sense of danger with the bottle rockets he shot mid rapid 😆

Fantastic day! The entire experience was something my wife and three boys will never forget. One thinks he might want to become a guide now. Thanks Levi and Tan Santa :)

As the co-owner of this business, and as the wife of someone who was once a kid sitting on that boat and dreaming of becoming a guide someday - I can tell you that just might happen to your son too! ..And it's a really, really great life :-) We're so glad to hear that Levi took care of you on the river and that Tan Santa took care of you on the ride back. We can't thank you enough for choosing us to guide you and your family down the river and for taking the time to leave this review - it means a lot to us. And when your son with guide aspirations turns 18 and is ready to go through our training program just let us know ;-) Thanks, again, and enjoy the rest of your summer!

My wife and I did this tour today with Aaron, and his girlfriend Alison (also a guide) joined us as well to help paddle. Awesome ride, and two very impressive young adults. Could be perceived as pretty difficult if you’re not in decent shape, but if you’re up for a little hard

We had a fantastic time (2nd year in a row) - Browns Canyon Trip last year and Numbers trip this year. Just like last year’s experience, the whole process was professional and seamless (including the new measures to keep everyone safe during COVID). Our guide, Bolen, was fun,

Thank you SO much for joining us two years in a row! So happy Bowlin took great care of you - he's been guiding this river for over 10 years and he's the best of the best. We're also glad you felt taken care of through our new COVID protocols - it's extremely important for us to provide the most appropriate environment possible for both our guests and our staff - guiding people into our Colorado backcountry has never been more important! Thanks,again, and we hope to see you on the river again in 2021!
