This trip was amazing!!!!!!
Totally worth the money!! We basically left thinking we would do it again!! It’s adventurous, so much fun, and an experience you’ll remember for life. You get to experience the Grand Canyon from below and the canyon walls just completely tower over with their magnitude and beauty. The Colorado River was amazing from it’s greenish/blueish tones to the exciting whitewaters and then the calm part towards the end- and Yes it’s Cold, but in the hot day, the water felt pretty refreshing. The trip was also not so physically demanding, the hike to the waterfall was quick (and one of my favorites parts), you do have to climb, but the level of exertion is really low (do take shoes that won’t slip). We didn’t have the option to do the helicopter because of COVID, but I think we would’ve liked that experience because at the end the boat trip does get a bit lengthy and one gets to get a little tired. All the guides were very friendly and they’re great at pointing out interesting parts of the canyon and it’s history, along with any wildlife (we got Lucky and we saw 2 packs of bighorn sheep (male & female) ; once in the canyon and another one by the river drinking. Oh and we also saw deer on the bus ride down to the canyon). I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience a bit more of the Grand Canyon and have a fun adventure! P.S. you’re gonna get soaked and it’s so worth it!
Highlight of our entire week long trip to the west
Our guide, Isiah Thomas, was awesome – we were told about him from some previous rafters. All of the guides were great but ask for him if you can. He is very liberal with snacks and treats his passengers with great hospitality.
1-Day Rafting Colorado River
Nonstop fun in the rapids and learned about geology, plants, history amidst the drop dead postcard scenery!
Grand Canyon Day Rafting Trip
Sidale (spelling) was an amazing guide and story teller. Highly recommend him. The overall experience exceeded our expectations!
Dale River guide is awesome and experienced
Unique, thrilling, informative experience!
Our guide Julian is a top notch navigator, fun guide, and proud Hualapai who shared interesting and fun lore about his land and nation.
It is a long day, but well worth it
The Hualapai crew do a fantastic job hosting and sharing their lands with guests at their lodge and on the river. They aren’t kidding when they say, “You’ll get wet!” and to take lots of water, sun protection!
Our driver, Dale is awesome and his insight to the area was fantastic! Polite, well spoken and new his craft! It was so much more than we expected and will definitely be recommending to others (as well as for our next ride)! Bravo…
Jordan was an excellent river guide
He’s very nice and taught us a lot about the history and culture of the river and canyon.
Be prepared for the weather!
If you see what looks like bad weather coming ask your guide to stop and get your rain gear.
Thanks for everything!
Spent a great day on the river with wonderful knowledgeable guides. Our guide was Dale, who was awesome and super conscientious!
Great job! We’d definitely do this again!
Rafting with the Hualapai River Runners through Rivers and Oceans was a blast. Our guide, Jordan, was friendly, accommodating, fun, and knowledgeable. Our family loved visiting Travertine Falls and our time on the Colorado River. You definitely get a different perspective of the Grand Canyon when you are rafting. This excursion was our favorite of our entire road trip.
Would highly recommend R and O!
Rivers and Oceans made it quick and easy to reserve our rafting experience and hotel reservations.
One Day Grand Canyon Rafting
My kids and I had an amazing day!
We had an amazing experience. As a thrill seeker it definitely exceeded my expectations. I just wish we had more time and more rapids.
Grand Canyon 1 Day Rafting Trip
Most worthwhile tour I took while in the Grand Canyon – absolutely awesome!
Had a blast!
This was a well organized group. The trip was amazing and they did a great job of putting kids from different families together so they had friends to play with during breaks. My son and I had a blast and can’t wait to do a longer trip!
So glad I went!
I was hesitant about my ability to be able to keep up with the rigors of white water rafting because of my physical disability. I was totally wrong. It was so much fun and the guides were very patient with me in our little walks to the falls.
Absolutely worth every penny!
I have been to The Grand Canyon South 4 times before. This was SO MUCH BETTER!!!! Take sunscreen and a hat.
From start to finish a very easy experience. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the employees from the bus driver to the river guides. Victor was amazing I would ask for him the next time I go. Very professional and also very Concerned about the safety of everyone throughout the trip. They worked together as a team for everyone’s enjoyment and safety.
One Day Grand Canyon Rafting
We had a spectacular experience. Our guide (Victor) was wonderful. He got the most out of every rapid and we got happily wet!!
Fun Rafting Experience!
I had so much fun on this trip! Jordan is an excellent guide with a lot of knowledge to share. The canyon is gorgeous and the experience was great!
Grand Canyon Whitewater!
Great experience and a great day! So much fun and Bradley was awesome!
Amazing, super-fun trip despite several mechanical problems heroically overcome by all crew members, in particular, Capt. Ben.
One of the most exciting and memorable vacation excursions I’ve ever taken. The rapids were thrilling, and the stop to hike to the waterfall was amazing. Our guide was very friendly and personable. The visuals were stunning. We drove 2 hours from Tusayan for the tour, and it was well worth it.
