Bob and I really enjoyed the team work experience together and the beautiful scenery. Mikey's expert guidance and knowledge of the Canyon made for an excellent adventure. This time of year the river is lower, so the trip is a little more intense. However, we would do it again and again! Thank you Mikey, you are a trip!

My husband and I decided wed like a white water rafting experience in Buena Vista. We were recommended to River Runners. We have had no prior experience but our guide Mikey took us through some grade 3 rapids expertly with clear instructions so we knew what was expected of us to steer properly. Very good trip and worth the money

My wife and I did the half day ride through Browns Canyon. It was the first time for both of us. Our guide emphasized safety and worked to teach us how to navigate the different rapids and work as a group. It was an amazing time and quite a workout. I can definitely say that after this experience I cannot... More

There were 6 of us all on a trip to Colorado and we decided to raft. It was pretty easy to book and when we called they answered all our questions. Our guide was Travis and he has been there for 17 seasons! He was amazing. We had no idea what we were doing but he guided us through it... More

Thank you so much for an amazing day. The entire staff was friendly and helpful from the first phone call to the picture order process at the conclusion of our day. Trevor was an awesome guide and made our first white water trip better than we even hoped. He was fun, polite and very experienced making it the perfect adventure.... More

We did the full day of rafting on Browns Canyon combined with the 2-hr Sunset Trail Ride (different company) and had a fantastic time! Everyone on staff at River Runners was professional and friendly, and our raft guide Dan did a fantastic job of guiding us through the water. Even after a full day of rafting, we could have continued.... More

First time trip to CO for my 40th bday and I had to go white water rafting! Went with three of my best girlfriends and poor Little Tyler (we've all said that many times since we've been home) - he was the BEST! We couldn't have asked for a better guide. We sort of didn't have it together (you know,... More

Rafting with the River Runners group was so much fun. We did a half day of rafting and a half day of ziplining. Both were great but everyone LOVED the rafting. It was the highlight of our vacation. Everyone had so much fun and we felt very safe and had a great time. We had 7 in our group and... More

We had a fabulous family float with seven adults and six kids. Megan was an awesome guide. We had so much fun that my husband and I came back two days later without the kids and did the half day rafting trip. Sam was also awesome. We will come back to River Runners next time we visit CO.
