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

My husband and I also enjoyed every minute of the trip and hope to go back some day to do the lower half. AzRA was great, they... More

After reading the reviews of AzRA and talking to a friend who took a trip with them a few years ago, I had very high expectations of my Classic trip. My expectations were met and exceeded. From my first phone call to the company to the last day of the trip, I was blown away by the professionalism of everyone... More

We recently took an 8-day motorized rafting trip with a teenager and preteen with AzRA (AzRaft). Truth be told, my teenager was very reluctant to go. However, 1 hour into the trip, he was smiling ear to ear, laughing, and clearly having an incredible time. It was the trip of a lifetime for all of us, and it's almost impossible... More

Just returned from the 13 day excursion down the Colorado. The beauty of the Grand Canyon was simply amazing and there are many memories we will treasure for the remainder of our lives. Equally amazing was the warmth, expertise and amenities shared with us by the five guides from AzRA throughout the trip. We have rafted with other outfitters in... More

I have hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and spent the night at Phantom Ranch. I have visited both rims of the Grand Canyon numerous times over the years. But until this trip with Arizona Raft Adventures, I had never seen or truly appreciated the majesty of the Grand Canyon. From the extensive preplanning assistance, to the very... More

It has to be the most beautiful place on earth. AZRA did a great job of keeping us informed from start to finish. The guides took great care of us from keeping us safe, fed, hydrated, shared personal stories and their knowledge of the canyon seemed endless. I felt their passion for the river and it certainly added to my... More

From start to finish, AzRa is a class act. Although, I have not been on another tour like this before, I can't imagine we could have had better guides, better food, or a better experience overall. We felt safe on the water and on our hiking trips. We were educated on how to keep ourselves healthy and in good shape... More
