Excellent trip,this was the highlight of our Las Vegas stay. We were picked up promptly from our hotel as pre arranged. Our driver Jennifer was brilliant, despite the fact we were unsure if the trip was going ahead due to heavy thunderstorms which had washed out the road that lead to the canyon. Prepare to get very wet and cold, but that is to be expected while rafting. The highlight for us was climbing up through the caves to find the hidden waterfall and the short helicopter ride from the base to the top. All in all great fun and by far the best way to see the Grand Canyon!!
Awesome, Amazing, Adventurous, Authentic
Would have to be the highlight of my 4 week US holiday. A great Tour company who delivered on all that they promised and the rest was up to me.
Highly recommended if you want to experience the Grand Canyon from being down right in it and if you happen to be a front seat passenger on the raft it is invigorating and refreshing!

Great tour, maybe too long and at some stage you would like to stop the engine and relax..that's not possible unfortunately
Fanastic trip - well worth the money. My whole family loved it. The best way to see the Grand Canyon. Would definately do it again.
Fabulous trip! We were a party of 4 adults and everyone of us loved the trip. Would highly recommend this!!!
We had a great time rafting. Had a wonderful guide (Blackfeather) who also gave us a history lesson about the Colorado River. Not to mention the tasty lunch they had provided for us on the river. I would recommend this trip to everyone. The only thing missing was the beer!!!!
From start to finish a really wonderful day. The office gave specific directions to what was needed in preparation, the driver was spot on time and the rafting organizers where fantastic. Be prepared to queue for the helicopter out of the canyon, it takes time to move people out in small groups.
Of all the trips we have done over the years, this rates as the best. The excitement was immense, especially when hitting the rapids. Our Indian guide was a little sweetheart and very kind. Truly wonderful day. Prepare to get very wet!
Amazing, incredible, so much fun! The water is cold all year even though the temp in the canyon was 100 degrees...our raft guide Louis was amazing and so informative, there is 8 in a raft. You stop off at a cave to view a waterfall, you do have to climb 2 rope ladders,and it is slippery and we had a really hot day, but if the surface temp is cooler as the water is so cold. The stop for dinner is fun, we even stopped at a small beach, helicopter out depends on surface winds, and if too strong you continue for another hour in raft. The driver from Las Vegas, Jennifer was amazing guide, and we stopped on route 66 for photos, and because we were on time we went back via the Hoover dam, (getting there means you travel on new bridge which is designed purposely so you cant see dam, they don't want people stopping taking photos). Take money, for tips for drivers and guides but also you can buy photos of trip back at Indian reservation.....amazing day, so much fun
Had a great time. Only wish we could have gone to an overlook once on top of the canyon and/or spent more time in the helicopter. The rafting was a blast, just be prepared to get wet-and the water is cold! The van driver who took us there was great and had a lot of knowledge of the area we were in and traveling to. The gift shop at the final destination was very nice and very reasonable. Overall it was a great experience. So glad we did it.
The trip was everything we were told it would be. Daniel, our van driver was very prompt and friendly, made our trip to and from the canyon very enjoyable. The raft trip was really great.
This was a fantastic day out, driving over the Hoover Dam, Route 66, and then rafting down the Grand Canyon; You cannot get anything better. We did get wet but this just added to all the fun
Despite it being the end of the season (late October) and the weather being a little poor, the trip itself was a lot of fun and a highlight of the holiday for our party. Jenny, the driver was excellent. She was helpful, friendly, and when we finally got back through the washed out roads and storm to the van, had snacks and went out of her way for us. She deserved an award. If you are not going in good weather, take wet weather clothes, my wet shorts and teeshirt meant I was getting very chilly towards the end. I would certainly advise anyone to try it as a fun and original way to see the canyon, much better than a helicopter ride!
Trip, wonderful and would recommend it to anyone, however while the rapids were fantastic and the scenery great it did become a little boring through the 20 miles of calm river with no more rapids to look forward to. Helicopter ascent and ride back to Vegas was fine. An experience to treasure forever.
Amazing day! A well organised trip with friendly and helpfull staff. The pickup from our hotel was on time and it was an interesting trip to the canyon. A very mixed group of people on the boats, all lighthearted. The rapids were great fun, got very wet! But that was welcome as extremley hot. Stops along the river were awesome.Ending with an exciting helecopter trip. In all a fantastic day that is well remembered.
Fantastic experience you will get wet but it must not be missed. The Hualapai Indian guides made the day while being extremely friendly and informative about the excursion. Randy our bus driver did a great job on our journey to and from the activity.
What an awesome day! Early start, but well worth it. Will be doing this again next season.
My husband and I loved this tour. Clean van, friendly driver / guide, incredible views - all in all, an awesome experience!
Loved it from start to finish. Exciting with plenty of thrills. Everyone so nice and accommodating. Highly recommend it .
It was an experience. Pamphlets say 3-6 class rapids. But really was more than that for most of it...No number 3's, maybe a couple of 4-6 and the rest primarily on another few being 7 and the rest 8's. After a number of those was not fun...With the beautiful grand canyon unfortunately spent primarily water over my head. I just ended up with a very bruised tail bone. Still glad I went...
One of the best experiences of my life! The only thing I didn't like was the guides while we were on the river. They were a bunch of 20 something year old kids that cared more about playing with each other than interacting with the paying customers. Everything else was awesome! The driver to and from Vegas, Ron, was great. He really took care of us. In addition, the driver that took us down into the canyon pointed out many interesting things. Great tour with spectacular views!
