Reid...was the best guide you would want to have. Cold towels dripped in cool water wrapped around your neck..shades...sun block and a hat...we were in Heaven. Canyons was awesome no deer/goats. If God has blessed you with or without sight it's something to be seen.
The overall trip was fantastic. John on the bus was very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable, our pilot on the raft was Jeff and he truly was a character. His knowledge of the canyon was unbelievable and made our trip very enjoyable. The only thing I would say is that the time on the river was just a little too long and 2 hours many have been better.
Beautifull views. I was kind of jealous when I saw all those people in kayaks and canoes stopping to visit the caves and the beaches and swim. But at least we stopped once to eat and swam a few minutes. Just make sure you know this trip is the quiet one. Perfect for elders and people that want it smooth.
Awesome day on the river with Jodi as our guide. She did an excellent job keeping us cool - the wet towels around our necks were a godsend! Just enjoyed every minute of it - relaxing, informative, hot springs, long horned sheep, great views. It was a spectacular day!
This trip is well worth the time and expense. Our tour guide, Dan, was excellent and very conscious of our safety and comfort as it was hot during our trip. While the restroom facilities were primitive during our lunch stop, the beauty of the area and the relaxing atmosphere more than made up for the lack of restroom comfort. On each vacation there is generally one thing thing that stands out as a favorite - this float trip was it.
