This trip has been on my bucket list for years, and now I have done it, and I want to do it again. I truely had a fantastic time. Thank you for making this a fantastic day! I cannot express in words how happy this trip made me!
Fantastic trip as soon as you get past the 4:00 a.m. hotel pick-up. I really had a great time. The tour is well organized - from the stop for breakfast on the way from Las Vegas to Arizona, to the helicopter ride out of the canyon. The scenery was magnificent, the rapids were exciting, and the lunch was delicious. There was no shortage of snacks and drinks. A few suggestions: phone and speak with Cathy at Viator the number is online if you have any questions or concerns, bring a pair of gloves I used garden gloves because there is a lot of holding on to either a metal pipe or wooden seat, and lastly, don't wear white. They call it white water rafting but really it's brown water rafting because the Colorado River is so full of silt, it's brown, and your clothing will get dirty from it. We went in early September so, although the water was cold - refreshingly - the air was so hot that we were comfortable with shorts and a t-shirt. One part of the trip that I had difficulty with was the climb to the falls. I was wearing water shoes - that were wet - and my feet kept slipping so I was a bit nervous climbing on the rocks and up the rope ladder. Take care with this. Another suggestion, on the bus ride down to the river, sit in the front as the road is VERY rough I think part of it is through a somewhat dried up creek bed, not a road at all!. Also, if you plan on taking pics or a video while in the helicopter, ask to sit in the front or at the window behind the pilot. Most importantly, plan on having fun! It's a once in a lifetime trip and well worth the cost.
What a wild ride! A once in a lifetime bucket list experience. The staff was helpful and informative about what to pack before our departure from home as well as providing a detailed explanation of the events of the day. Our driver was punctual and safe. He also provided drinks and snacks for the ride home. A wonderful experience.
We had such an amazing time on our trip August 13th, 2015. I never write reviews but I just had to put how well we were taken care of on the drive there until we got dropped back off. Our driver Ron was so funny and just the greatest guy. You have to ask for him. The river rafting itself was just a great experience. I had never done anything like that and can't wait to do it again. I will recommend this trip to everyone I know. will be adding photos as soon as I download them.
This has got to be one of the best experiences we as a family have ever had. The Grand Canyon was amazing and the rafting was fabulous fun. Hold on tight though, wear plenty of high factor sun cream and get a hat with a string to hold it on. Your shoes / sandals have to have the toes covered in. They supplied plenty of water and the lunch was a lovely sandwich. Just remember to accept a bottle of water off your guide as you get off the raft as you may have a short wait for the helicopter out in the baking sun.
TERRIFIC!! Andre was great. He took great care of us, made sure we had a good time. would do the tour again.
Great trip! Tour guide was excellent and very informative. Would highly recommend tour.
Fun, thrilling, scary, VERY WET, relaxing, and scenic - all in one! Not much we DIDN'T love about our full-day white water rafting trip on the Colorado river. Our driver to/from Las Vegas (Ron!) was amazing (how the heck he has the ability to be so enthusiastic and social at 4am is beyond me!).
Everything about this tour was fantastic!! We'll run, very pleasant guides, and a terrific adventure. It was worth every penny!!
absolute first class journey through a different world to the one we know breath taking
Wow! Just wow! Awesome day, full of fun!
Defo recommend! Views were amazing!
Fantastic day out and great adventure. Would highly recommend this trip.
Excellent trip, driver to the rafting company was amazing, I did get a bit cold on the river as the water was freezing but other wise amazing trip!!
This was an awesome tour! Ron our guide from Las Vegas was the best guide we have ever had. The raft trip was exciting and the water was cold.
We had a fabulous time a must do before you die. The whole day was fun filled in fact the best tour I have ever been one with fab views and a great tour guide. Since coming back I have recommended your tour
This trip has got to be a must. Our holiday highlight. Hubby had a big birthday, I had emailed this to viator and the first thing the guide said to us was "happy birthday" amazing. I booked via internet in England and three months later we were doing it. Viator kept in touch with emails and everything went smoothly. Thank you Viator for being so brilliant.
Didn't think I would like it but I would do it all over again it was that good
This tour was fantastic. Well organised, friendly people. Amazing scenery and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend it...
This was an incredible day! Our driver Ron was knowledgeable, friendly and went out of his way to show us some extra sights on the way home. Van was a little crowded, but we all ended up on the same raft so we were old friends by the time we got to the River. Be prepared to get completely soaked! I called the tour operator ahead of time, and spoke to Kathy, who was really helpful listing all the things to bring-sunglasses with holders, hat with brim, sunscreen, quick dry clothes, water shoes (or shoes you don't mind getting wet and muddy), a pullover, etc. I highly recommend checking in with them before you tour, as a reminder of what you'll need. We stopped for breakfast, and then had a quick stop at the tour dispatch area on the reservation where we boarded different vans to drive down to the river. That's a fun, bumpy ride, and takes another hour. Our van drive was also a river guide, so she was full of knowledge! Our river guide, Ted, was helpful, and told us so much about the Canyon that we didn't know. Sights were just breathtaking! Lunch was a sandwich and chips, nothing special, but incredible in the amazing setting! The rapids were fun, and we got drenched:) Beautiful ride after lunch, and they provided plenty of water to ease some of the heat. It was over 100 degrees the day we went, and the cool water kept it comfortable, but be sure to take your sunblock in your pocket to be able to reapply often, since the sun is very strong. Helicopter ride is short and fun, and I see some people complained about that, but the point of the tour is the rafting, not the helicopter hop up to the bus. Overall, an exhausting, but completely fun day! JUST GO!
Great service from the moment we were picked up from the hotel . Great experience and a life long memory made
This was a wonderful day from pick up to drop off - our van driver was great - the tour service from the reservation was great and the rafting guide Cassius was outstanding. We had a group in the raft that loved to get wet and he was an expert guide on "riding" the rapids. The stops they made at the falls, lunch, and to swim were all beautiful places. We could not have been more impressed by the entire trip. To top it all off you have a short but beautiful tour of the Grand Canyon via helicopter ride to the top!! I would recommend to anyone who wants to see the beauty of the canyon along with the thrill of some great whitewater rafting.
Great guide, great fun, great scenery. Great way to see the Grand Canyon from the inside.
