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!
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.
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.
Unbelievable, this is the best rafting trip on the planet. Plan on having the time of your life. Be sure to take the Skywalk add- on as it''s an awesome experience.
This rates as one of the most exciting/fun things I have ever done with my family!! Our Hualapai boat guides were awesome, and took us to some very special places, sharing with us many stories from their tribal history. Warning: you will get soaked to the bone over and over again ... it was so fun and exhilarating. You cannot say you have seen the Grand Canyon until you have done this. I hope do it again someday.
