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.
This was a fantastic trip and what a way to see the Grand Canyon whilst at the same time, having the adrenaline rush of white water rafting. Don't be put off by the price....whilst at face value, it's not cheap, it's definitely worthwhile for what is probably a once in a lifetime experience.
Brilliant experience guides and drivers very friendly and helpful would recommend it to anyone !!!
Great sights, fun water and helicopter flight sealed a fantastic day - highly recommended
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.
This was the most amazing trip and to travel along the Colorado river in the Grand Canyon was nothing short of magnificent. The rapids were great fun, but never at anytime did you feel in danger and the pilot of the raft was in total command.
A fantastic day despite the early morning start.
Wow what a great day! Picked up on time, driven in comfort with good company and plenty of 'chat' that kept us all engaged from the time we left the hotel until our arrival at the Grand Canyon. The transfer to the rafting at the canyon was seamless.. Our rafting guide was excellent. With a small boat load and a couple of energetic boys in our crowd, Anthony accommodated everyone's needs. Lunch was simple but filling and the raft ride to the helicopter was enjoyable. Scenery? You have to see it, photos don't really do justice. Awesome helicopter ride out of the canyon! We were met by Randy at the door and enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable ride home stopping at sites of interest on the way. It was only one day in the canyon but we had a blast! We felt like the day was packed and while we still need to come back to see more, it will wait. Recommend: ohhhh yesss.
This was an awesome event. A bargain at double the price. We will always treasure this adventure. It was a bucket list item. John C.
My children ages 21 and 10 and I age 48 went on the Grand Canyon White Water Rafting Trip from Las Vegas on June 26, 2017 and enjoyed it very much. I was a little doubtful that we were going to experience true white water rafting, however, my doubts were unfounded. We went through about 6 or 7 sets of rapids and one set in particular, was rated Class VI - VII. In my opinion, I could not have handled anything stronger without being strapped into the boat! It was a blast and we got very wet while going through all of the rapids. The short climb and hiking trip to the Travertine waterfall was fun also, as well as the brief swim and dare devil jumps from a rock ledge. The guide was very informative about various points of interest along the journey and nice as well. The helicopter ride at the end of the rafting trip was an awesome way to end the float down the river. The driver who transported us to the canyon, Ron, was super friendly and made us all feel very welcome. He made a short stop at the Hoover Dam on the way back and even brought us to a local park in the area that has free-roaming mountain goats which we have never seen in person. He simply made us feel like family. I have seen the Canyon now from lookout points, by helicopter and by raft. No doubt that rafting is the way to go. The vantage point is like no other and these are memories my children will have for a lifetime. Thanks to all who helped make this a very special day for us!
This was an amazing trip. Ron picked us up and really took care of us all the little extras and his attention to detail is perfect nothing is too much trouble. We did extra things not on the itinerary which was a bonus we went up to the sky walk and saw the Hoover Dam wow after doing rapid runs, exploring caves and waterfalls, floating, swimming and picnicking on the Colorado River what an experience. The two guys on the raft were great fun and kept us safe, fed and entertained along the way. This was then ended with a helicopter ride out of the canyon. It is a pricey tour but so worth it. Really would recommend it. Brilliant
I have just come back from my Las Vegas trip. This tour was amazing. Words can not describe how fantastic this experience is and pictures just don't do the Grand Canyon and justice what so ever, it has to be seen in person!!!!!. From the very start of our tour to the very end was well looked after. Ron our driver picked us up at 4:30am from our hotel in Vegas. He was brilliant made the trip to the grand canyon even better, supplies you with a nice comfy pillow so you can have a snooze on the way and he even stops at Dennys for you to buy breakfast and there he will explain all what is going to happen. Ron is well informed and so friendly he does his very best to look after you. After Ron dropped us off we then boarded the bus to take us down to the bottom of the canyon even that was fantastic. When we got to the bottom we was met by our boat drivers Nick and Henry. Through out the whole boat trip they was both funny, friendly and knew everything you needed to know about the canyon. In between doing the rapids I think 7 in total which are really good fun!!!! you stop along the way. The first stop is to clime into the caves and see the waterfall again that is amazing. The next stop is lunch which is included that was very nice and when sat at the bottom of the Grand Canyon eating your packed lunch looking at this amazing view you just don't believe you are there. It will be the best place you have ever stopped to eat your packed lunch!!!!! after the last rapid you take a very relaxing trip to the end of the river before getting on the helicopter. The helicopter ride is a grate experience again fantastic views. When the helicopter lands Ron is there waiting for you. You hop into his van for the journey home, he gives you a wet flannel to wash down and had cold water for you to refresh yourself. Ron even stopped at the Hover Dam on the way home his hospitality through out the whole time you are with him is outstanding. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is going to Vegas or is visiting the grand canyon. This trip need to be seen and done to believe it!!!!!!!!!
One of the best experiences I've had! Raft was much more dangerous than I thought, but it just added to the excitement! Staff were super friendly and knew exactly what they were doing too. Our lovely tour guide looked after us very well during the transfer from Vegas and back. It was great to be able to stop off along the canyon and explore some waterfalls and have lunch by the river bank. Definitely a must see wonder of the world!
