Trepidation initially. AAE awesome! Encouraged our family to forego the 'float trip' for the Browns Canyon raft trip. Awesome! Best decision ever. 8-8-7 yo (keep in mind 'lowish water levels'). The kids can't wait to go again next year! Bowlin, our raft guide was awesome!

I work outside Meg, was fantastic. She paid attention to everyone in the raft, made sure we see all having fun, and made sure it was a great experience for all.
