    14 members of our family, ranging from 7 to 39, took the morning Browns Canyon raft trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. They all said it was the highlight of our wonderful trip to Colorado this summer. We were staying in Breckenridge and drove the 90 minutes to Buena Vista. Grandpa

    What a fun day! Breckenridge is such a great town to stay in and you're right - it's definitely worth the drive! (and thankfully that construction is over and the drive is only an hour now!). Our kids LOVE feeding the chipmunks too :-) And, of course, so happy to hear the rafting crew had a good time out there! Even though water levels are lower in August, they're still really fun and perfect for families. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and hopefully we'll have the opportunity to host you and your family on future adventures here in Buena Vista!

    Our family of five did the Brown's Canyon trip the last afternoon of the season and had a fantastic time. Our guide Matt was terrific, working with a group of first timers. Great time was had by all. Highly recommended.

    One of our greatest pleasures is getting first-timers out there to experience the beauty and rapids of Browns Canyon! It's such a unique experience and we hope it's the first of many rafting adventures for you and your family. So glad to hear Matt took great care of you - we're really grateful to have him on our team. And we're grateful to you for taking the time to review us! Please come back and see us again next summer for some more rapids :-)

    My rafting trip with AAE was so much fun! Not only is Browns Canyon a beautiful spot but the staff at AAE made the trip! We had Spencer as our guide. He was super experienced and clear with his direction while on the river. I felt safe and had such a great time as well. I would
