The drive down to the canyon was spectacular with blooming cacti. I would recommend fast drying clothes and a chnge of clothes at this time of the year. The ride after lunch got chilly for the people in jeans. The ponchos did not bring enough protection. Everthing else was stellar and worth the mone
Was a fabulous experience , staff and guides great. A fantastic lunch on the shore and a excellent hike to a water fall. I highly recommend this to everyone.
This tour was amazing!
Was a fabulous experience , staff and guides great, however we still have not recieved our photos which were promised
It was just anazing! Great people n our boat, stopped and learned about the cay onto from our guide. Great trip
we had much difficulty finding the shuttle pickup-later discovering we couldve picked up our rental car at our very own hotel harrahs!!! after all that stress every thing else worked out.we had a grand time at the grand canyon,but it was so hotttttttt-wonder when it cools off?we were relieved we left las vegas before the flood came
This was an extraordinary day. Just being on the Colorado River IN THE GRAND CANYON is beyond imagining. The ride was fantastic and the vistas incredible and constant. There were 6 people on our raft plus the two river guides--they both were terrific. We did 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 rated rapids, and we were asking for more. This is a wild ride in the rapids and extremely calm between them. You definitely will get completely soaked, and the water is a year-round 45 degrees. Be sure to follow the what-to-wear and what-to-bring guidelines in the tour details. I would do this again and again and again.
This was the best day of our trip. The rapids were amazing we got soaked but we loved it. The canyon was beautiful and our guide was great even pulled over after lunch so we could jump of the cliffs and swim in the river. But to top all that the helicopter ride was spectacular .
Started with a bang! An hour drive down a very bumpy, narrow road to the river. From there we were met by the rafting staff who were excellent. The morning included navigating the rapids and stopping to travel to a waterfall. Beautiful! The rapids were fun. After lunch, the afternoon was spent sailing along the Colorado River at a leisurely pace enjoying the views of the Grand Canyon. I was with a really good group of people from different countries which made the experience all the more enjoyable. The day ended with a treat as we were airlifted by helicopter out of the canyon. Brilliant! Great day!
One of the most enjoyable memorable experieces of my life. Good Times the entire day.
Great, great, great! Wonder,why I had to become 76 to raft in the Gr.C., to climb ropes to a waterfall, and to even swim(volunterely)for half a mile down the Colorado.
It was a fantastic trip and well worth the money spent.
Andre the guide was brilliant and informative.
Took 2 girls of 13 and 15 they had a ball - rafting before lunch and gentle ride down the river after - stunning.
Tips : wear a swimming costume you get very wet.
Take lots of suncream as v hot in summer
Take change of cloths for end as helicopter does not like you being wet
You have a 2.5 hour drive at the end to get back to lodge but fine if you know and you might have to wait for up to an hour for the bus to get you back after the helicopter ride.- the only down side
The only thing I would say they were a little disorganised at the beginning get the boats on water, but it was fine.
My kids and I had the most fantastic day white water rafting down the mighty Colorado River into the Grand Canyon. The Hualapai River Runners have been providing tours for 42 years, and it shows. The large motorized rafts were great, and our guide was young and enthusiastic. There was a delay to the day's start while guides readied the rafts' motors, and also an unexpected lengthy delay on the return drive due to 2 other rafters taking a wrong bus. That said, the white water was great, the picnic lunch was perfect, the bonus stop to view a sky-lit cave and waterfall was awesome, and nothing can compare to the grandeur of the canyon setting. The day exceeded my lofty expectations. What a fantastic adventure!
Extremely well organised. I've been lucky enough to visit the Grand Canyon by helicopter, small plane and now self drive. The self drive was in my opinion the best experience.
Very pleasant easy tour. Loved being in our own vehicle. We stopped by the Hoover Dam on the way back since we had time. Grand Canyon was breathtaking and Skywalk was really worth the trip.
Amazing place tour was great
This was one of the most awesome experience we had on our trip out West. Would recommend highly.
Rafting the rapids was definitely a highlight of our trip. A must for anyone who wants to say they saw the Grand Canyon!
could not have been better, the best day trip i have ever had. Made even more special by the local indians who were our guides.
We had a brilliant time on this tour. We travelled from the UK to Vegas in July and spent a day exploring the Hoover Dam and the Canyon which were both fantastic. Driving was easy and canyon is very well run. We did helicopter, boat and skywalk. Superb. Even drove down Route 66 on way home. 5 stars!!!!!
Lots of fun! Very warm day but the water was approximately 46 degrees so it kept us cool. The helicopter ride at the end was a great conclusion to a very enjoyable day.
Rafting Tour was the best. Our guide, Tyler, was awesome. We enjoyed the cold water rising over our heads, as the boat plunged down over each rapid, filling the boat with water. Hell of a trip. Tyler provided stories at various points in the trip. Great day of fun wrapped with a some knowledge.
Fantastic day out. Well worth doing again. Company was great and the guide was very helpful.
Driving to the Grand Canyon was great! A driver from Hertz picked us up at our hotel around 7 am and dropped us off at the Hertz location at the Hard Rock Hotel. We picked up a very nice SUV around 7:30 am along with our packet that included maps, literature about the Grand Canyon tour and vouchers for entrance to the Grand Canyon and lunch ticket. On our way we stopped in Boulder City at the Hacienda Hotel and Casino to get a nice big breakfast and then we were on our way. The drive was nicer than I had expected being in the desert and all.
We arrived at the Grand Canyon around 10:30 and exchanged our vouchers for tickets and boarded the shuttle bus to the 1st of 3 stops at the Canyon. Very, very organized staff. The canyon was breathtaking. You can take as long as you want on each stop since the shuttles come by every 15 minutes. WE had lunch at the last stop, an Indian ranch. We had chicken or ribs, mashed potatoes, vegetables, cornbread, cookies and a drink. Very nice atmosphere with a cowboy picking on the guitar while you eat in the air conditioned food hall. We headed back to our SUV around 2:30 and drove back towards Vegas, stopping at the Hacienda Casino on the way back to get a drink and gamble a little. Dropped our car back off at the Hotel, put the keys in the night box and we were done. It was very easy and a great way to see the Grand Canyon.
This was great. We loved traveling at our own pace and will do this trip again when we're back in Nevada. My only recommendation is making sure you have a full tank of gas before leaving Vegas. There aren't many options once you get into Arizona.
