  • We all had a great time. It was a beautiful trip and we liked doing the paddling ourselves. Definitely want to do it again.  more »
  • We loved our trip! We had the Irish guy, Brian, he was the BEST! He guided us brilliantly. He entertained us with stories. He got to know us and ask questions about our family. He made the day simply ...  more »
  • I almost talked myself out of going with the rest of my family because I can’t swim and was scared to death of falling into the river. I cannot stand getting water in my face even. I was as close to a...  more »

  • I can't say enough good things about our experience with American Adventure Expedition. Our family of four went on a family float trip since our youngest is five. Our guide, Robby, was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun, but professional. He was incredible with my two kids. This float trip was definitely a highlight of our vacation. All of the other staff we worked with were friendly and had great customer service. I highly recommend this company.
  • Rafting with these folks was a highlight of our trip. They were so friendly and knowledgeable. We did the Brown's Canyon trip. On the way to the put-in, we saw big horn sheep. Then, on the trip, we saw a bald eagle. All of the guides were super fun and knew exactly what they were doing. Aaron was our guide, and I cannot say enough nice things about him. I definitely recommend this company!
  • We brought our church youth group for this adventure. We had an excellent time. We were all safe (an important concern with teenagers and when responsible for other people's kids). We all had a fantastic time. The guide in my boat, Matt, was patient and fun. Serious when needed, yet personable and easy to feel comfortable with. He gave great instruction and pointed out a lot of really cool "river" things--including the big horned rams/sheep that he spied on the mountain as we passed. I want to come back and take my family. I would definitely book with them again! Thanks for the fun day!
  • Trevor was an excellent guide down Brown's Canyon today. He's easy to talk to, great at directions, and completely excellent at not getting anyone killed. We had a wonderful time and good humor and advice ensured we had a great rafting experience. Everyone we worked with to get set up for our large group, get fitted, and drive out to the location was friendly, professional and fun. Definitely check out this place and see why it has great reviews and why the Browns Canyon is one of the most visited rafting locations around!
  • Absolutely amazing! From the start to finish staff was welcoming, friendly and (most importantly) super helpful! I recommend renting water suits, shoes, splash coat, etc. Since the water is FREEZING! Shout out to our guides: Sean & Sean and Bowling! You guys were awesome and made the adventure that much more fun! (And SAFE!) Thanks everyone for a great first experience! πŸ˜πŸ‘β€
