We had an awesome guide Tyler, he told jokes and shared stories about some of the places we went to in the canyon.
This White water raft trip was the best one day tour of the Grand Canyon anyone could ask for. One of a kind views from every turn. The crew was supper nice and informed about the history as we traveled down the canyon. They provided drinks snacks fruit and super lunch when we might have a break between rapids. You watched the beautiful canyon go from jagged cliffs to a mellow rolling hills near Lake Mead. My family and I were picked up by this tour company at our resort in Vegas, we stopped at a place for breakfast proceeded to the bottom of the canyon via van. Picked up by van at the raft followed with the return to our resort. Loved this day. GREAT group of people that day.
All of the staff were great, really friendly and made you feel relaxed. The Rapids, the stories and history of the canyon told by the lovely Patricia who was also our boat driver. Had a little hike to a secluded beach area with water fall and great views lead by a great young lad (sorry forgot his name). Had a few hours of just drifting the canyon after dinner which was very relaxing with blue skies and canyon walls all around. Highly Recommend.
Absolutely Brilliant and a great experience. Full day tour with a good lunch. Plenty of rock formations to see and the white water part was great Note -the water was very cold and you get wet everywhere, there is no point in wearing any waterproofs as the water falls on top of you - but thats what you are there for!. Went down into the canyon in an old School bus to the rafts, visited a waterfall no designated path, you climbed rocks and we meandered down the canyon we didn't do the helicopter after the white waters - very quiet and peaceful.
This was probably the best tour I have ever taken and we were extremely satisfied. Everyone involved was great and made the trip enjoyable. The guides were very knowledgeable and you could tell they really liked their job. Michael who drove us out to the river had a ton of knowledge to give us and made sure to point out as much as he could going down. Our guide on the boat, Andrew, was great as well and I'd ask for him when we come back for this again. He was super nice, knowledgeable, and overall made sure we had a great time. I was pretty impressed by the training they have to go through for certification and was impressed overall by the way he took us down the river. Ron who drove us out was super nice as well and made sure we were prepped. That said about the staff, the actual trip was amazing and a highly reccomend it to anyone who wants to see the GC from the river. I was hesitant to book this trip at first thinking we might not see a lot or the rapids might be small due to it being a one day trip or more towards the end of the usual longer trips but I was 100 wrong - you go through a decent amount of larger rapids and you see a lot of great stuff. Highly recommend climbing to the waterfall too. We had a great time the entire trip and I want to come back ASAP. One last thing - we wore thick plastic suits and still were drenched but they were still worth wearing because they acted as a shield from the water so I would recommend wearing one on the trip just for that reason.
What a fantastic experience, we had an amazing guy on our raft who knew the canyon like the back of his hand. yes you have to set off early but it is well worth it. They have a dry bag on the boat to place all your belongings in. You dont need to take any waterproofs as they wont really help, and its all part of the fun getting wet. Make sure you have a waterproof camera to get some great snaps. The helicopter ride out of the canyon was great fun also, but you do have a bit of a trek up the canyon to catch it.
Brilliant experience guides and drivers very friendly and helpful would recommend it to anyone !!!
Very scenic and fun experience water is cold and you will get wet. Nice lunch and well guided trip very informative guides. IWe would go again.
Was one of the best things I've ever done. Had an amazing day on the river - great guides and SO much fun on the rapids. I can't recommend this tour highly enough and it was worth every cent.
I have waited years to do this excursion and I was not disappointed. A truly exhilarating experience and one not to be missed. Everyone involved was helpful and friendly from Kathy in the office to Ron the driver who made the long drive entertaining and informative. At the site JB the bus driver helpful and entertaining. On the water our boat driver Tyson was extremely competent and friendly and went out of his way to make sure everyone had a good experience. Will definitely do this trip again next time I'm in Vegas.
Fantastic experience. You'll definitely want a waterproof camera to capture the views.
