TAC receives Certificate of Excellence award

Buena Vista, CO (PRWEB) June 10, 2014

Colorado whitewater rafting company The Adventure Company today announced it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.

This award lets our team of experienced whitewater rafting guides know we are succeeding in creating wonderful adventures for our customers.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.


“We owe this award to all our past and repeating customers who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said The Adventure Company owner Mark Hammer. “This vote of confidence from such an established hospitality industry leader is very timely, as so many river rafting trips in Colorado are being planned right now. This award lets our team of experienced whitewater rafting guides know we are succeeding in creating wonderful adventures for our customers.”

The Adventure Company is the only whitewater rafting outfitter in Colorado requiring at least four years of professional experience for its guides, is among the few river rafting companies in Colorado capable of offering expert (Class V) raft trips and boasts a safety record among the best in the industry. Its 145 reviews and aggregate “Excellent” rating on TripAdvisor is complemented by a 4.6 out of five star rating on Google and five out of five star rating on Yelp.

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.”

In addition to river rafting, The Adventure Company also offers ATV tours, fishing expeditions, horseback riding, hot air balloon rides, kayak trips, mountain biking, rock climbing, scenic train rides and zip line tours.
