I just returned from one of the most fantastic outdoor experiences with AZRA. My sister and I rafted the top half of the Canyon and my only regret was not booking the entire Canyon trip. I've done a bit of work leading backpacking trips so have some idea of how hard it is to lead a lengthy backcountry trip well,... More

Did a 8 day motorize river run program thru Roades Scholar and NASU. Was probably the best experience of my life. The rapids were fun but the Canyon experience touched my soul. We had amazing river guides with Jed and Erin. Food was better than most high class restaurants. The knowledge and love of the canyon shared with us by... More

This trip was beyond amazing, exceeding our expectations in almost every way. The guides were amazing and knowledgeable, the food was great, the logistics extremely well executed. And of course the Grand Canyon is well worthy of its status as one of the seven wonders of the world. The only question to ask yourself is about how much hiking you... More

Rafting the Grand Canyon is definitely a challenge for which one must be well prepared. I must say that our guides carefully instructed us on what to expect and demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the canyon. They really worked hard to feed us and care for us. This was my first ever rafting trip so I really can't compare it... More

I waited to write this evaluation and let the late May 14 day Grand Canyon all paddle trip age somewhat to give me some perspective. When I return to the Canyon next time it will not be with AZRA even though this was my second trip with them. I had two major concerns. The first was alcohol. River running is... More

Dear Jackel55: I am disheartened to hear that your second Grand Canyon rafting trip with Arizona Raft Adventures (AzRA) did not meet your standards and was embarrassed to hear your oar blade story. I can certainly see how this one individual’s dishonesty would cause you to lose confidence in your crew. Please rest assured that after you spoke with a... More

We spent six glorious days on the Colorado River with Arizona Raft (AzRaft). Our guides had extraordinary in depth knowledge of the history and geology. They were wonderful. I have done a fair amount of white water rafting and I have never seen such large waves as we experienced on the river. The Azraft guides got us safely down that... More

We just returned from a trip with AzRA where we rafted 226 miles over 14 days. We've been fortunate to travel a lot with our kids, but this was one of the best trips we've ever taken. We had never been to the Grand Canyon before. We were blown away not only at the beauty but also at how much... More
