AVA Rafting & Zipline reviews
AVA rafting was awesome. We felt safe and thrilled all at the same time. Beautiful scenery through Browns Canyon National Monument. The perfect amount of floating and rapids. Knowledgeable staff. more »
We had the best time on our trip. Our guide Durham was very knowledgeable & fun. We did a full day with an excellent fajita lunch on the river. Would highly recommend this trip to friends. more »
Seriously, guys, the staff was so great here. We had a bit of a mix up with my niece's reservation, but they took care of everything. Informative and helpful and really friendly. The rafting trip was great for my crew of little ones. Challenging enough that we had to pull together, and low level enough (class III) that my 10yo was able to contribute. He and our guide quipped back and forth the whole trip, too. (Thanks, Alex) We chose to camp, but my wife is not super outdoorsy, so it was a nice easy-access tent site with beautiful views. Bring warm clothes, though 😉 Are you still reading? Book your trip already!
AVA is a great company to raft with. They are professional, friendly, fun, and great at what they do. Ian was our raft guide and he was awesome! The Class 3 half-day tour was fun and wet but not overwhelming for those of us who were not experienced. They took quality photos capturing good action shots. Thanks AVA for the great experience! We hope to be back to try the next level and it will definitely be with you guys!
