Weather was perfect. Early May seems like a good time to go. Not much traffic on the river, so very peaceful. Guide was fun and had a good knowledge of the sights. We even saw some big-horned sheep. A great alternative spending a day in Las Vegas during a vacation.
Fab. The guide was so interesting but didn't keep babbling on, just let us meander down the river.
It was great! The scenery was to die for. Would be great for older people too, only one rough spot through out the trip, might not be so great if you can't hold the water in you for 4 hours, there's no bathrrom available while on the raft. A bit of advice don't do it in the summer! I went in November and although it was 75 degrees with a nice breeze, exposing under the sun for that 4 hours got warm, needless to say, bring some sunscreen.
First class enjoyment and so well organised. The guide was so good and very knowledgeable. Well worth doing.
This is the third time we've taken this excursion in the past 3 years. We'll do it again. We suggest you change the policy on expecting us to tip bus DRIVERS inasmuch as your company had us get on 3 different buses just to get us to the raft! Excessive tipping expectations.
The raft trip was better than the average "Vegas" show...beautiful mountains, blue skies, a blue heron, many rams, the informative guide, etc., etc. Only problem was a mix-up on paperwork (go figure) and we were left at the hotel, but when brought to their attention, a small van took us right out to meet the group. Thanks!!!!!
I thought it was one of the best river tours I had ever been on. Our guide was very friendly and informative. He made the trip very interesting and enjoyable. Hope to be able to return soon.
Excellent trip, captain helped to make the trip very interesting. Weather was wonderful, about 109 and sunny, great!
A great trip. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Would absolutely recommend. Natural beauty of Grand Canyon out shined Vegas by a mile.
Nearly missed the pick up bus, glad we didn't, absolutely brilliant day out.
Although it was windy and therefore very wet, our captain made the whole day great fun and we didn't mind the conditions. If it wasn't for his friendly banter and informative chat, I don't think we would have enjoyed the day half as much. He is an asset to the company.
This is a must do if you get the chance, we really enjoyed the rafting, fun and amazing landscape. Would definitely recommend.
My husband and I had a great time on the raft trip. Our guide made it alot of fun. The view from the raft was breathtaking. I would recommend it highly. My husband is not fond of water, but he enjoyed it immensely!
This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. It is not a mild ride unless you are sitting at the back of the raft. However, trust me, no matter where you are, you will get wet on this tour. The tour guides here have a wonderful sense of humor, are very protective, and are incredibly knowledgeable about the canyon.
From the beginning of the day to the end of the day, this was one of the most perfect adventures we have ever been on. We were picked up on time, the drivers and the tour guide were very friendly and informative. Our raft tour guide was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and loves the river and the raft. He made a great day even better! This is a trip everyone should experience at least once. The scenery is magnificent, so don't forget your camera! Our trip was on a Sunday, when no other motors are allowed so it made for a very peaceful trip. We would recommend this trip to everyone interested. A lunch packed in a souvenir cooler bag and plenty of water are provided for the day. Be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen, as there isn't much shade at all. I had a beach towel too, which came in handy when we stopped at the shore for lunch. The river is calm and smooth. There isn't anything dangerous such as "white water rapids," so this is perfect for families too, as long as the children are old enough to sit somewhat still in their seat on the raft for most of the day. Don't miss this opportunity when in Las Vegas!
What a wonderful, relaxing, invigorating way to see some of the most beautiful land in the country. Our guide was excellent, the lunch was quite good, and the accommodations on the raft were comfortable and safe. I couldn't give this a higher recommendation!
Bit too long but very good,lovely views and got to see a wild bold eagle!!!
An extremely hot day, 94 degrees, made it somewhat uncomfortable for us. Box lunch could've been more appetizing.
Everything else was good. How about starting the rafting tour at 9:30 or 10:00 instead of 11:00?
This was a great day out, so glad we did it. The rafting tour itself was about 3ish hours and to be honest that was long enough as it was a very hot day and there was no shade or shelter from the sun (but it was early August!). By the time though that we had been picked up at the hotel and then returned, you need to consider the half day trip a full day as we were picked up at 7:45am and got dropped off again shortly after 4pm. The tour guide was very knowlegeable and friendly and provided much needed cold wet towels (from the river) to help keep the passengers cool. The lunch was pretty basic but there was more than a plentiful supply of water to help keep hydrated. Scenary was spectacular and offered a completely different perspective of the Hoover Dam area - would definitely recommend doing if you get the chance.
