Great kayaking trip
, Sep 2020
Organized and planned well. Reid was our tour guide we had and he was awesome. Great time kayaking on the Colorado River.
River Adventure

Great adventure. Included a hike where we learnt about the plants which I liked. I submerged myself in the Colorado. Guides were sweet and nice. One thing I would recommend though. If you are a beginner go in a double kayak. I was in a single and it was quite tiring.

Interesting experience

Nice tour & tour guide. It would definitely be better if the tour provided a small meal instead of snacks. Plenty of water was given. It was a great workout for my arms- lots of kayaking. Therefore, be prepared to stretch & sweat but of course you can cool off by swimming in the waters/ splashing yourself with the water. Also, I recommend the tour bus put in stronger AC in the back. It felt a little stuffy. Tour guide definitely made sure the tour was on time throughout the day.

Hello, Thanks for coming out on tour with us! Our full day tour supplies lunch but our half day is only snacks and water which is advertised on our website and all 3rd party website. The guests do have time to go to the general store inside the Hoover Dam Lodge to grab a packed lunch if they wish. We understand the busses can get hot in the back. We use Mercedes Sprinters as our vehicles and have installed 4 fans in the back of every bus to help with the airflow. Unfortunately the weather was 118-120 degrees on the river the weekend you joined us. We are glad you still had a good time and look forward to taking you out again.
Reid’s a beast!
