An amazing adventure in stunning country with constantly awe-inspiring vistas. A great balance between rafting down the spectacular canyon with a variety of rapid sizes and most days we also explored the surrounding slot canyons and ridges by foot and were fortunate enough to see a couple of mountain lion foot prints! We loved sleeping under the stars almost every... More

There are few places in the world where you can see rocks that are a billion years old, experience numerous white water rapids and hike into beautiful side canyons. Only about 750,000 people have rafted the Grand Canyon, so you would be one in a million if you embark on this adventure. For me, this was an opportunity to experience... More

I was amazed by how well coordinated this trip was, by the quality of the guides, by the staggering beauty of the place. I lead retreats all over the world and this was the most well run beautiful trip I have ever taken. Thank you.

This was the most amazing trip and exceeded all of our expectations. This was a bucket list item for us to do as a family. My children 16 and 19 are still talking about our adventure. Where else can you camp, raft, hike, learn about geology and history in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Words can't... More

I'm a 50ish yr old avid hiker/skier who usually does self guided trips. Not having rafting skills my husband booked a full canyon trip with AZRA and filled it up with our friends. So with 17 kindred spirits we started down the the Colorado. Ours guides were knowledgeable, competent, personable and fun!. Sleeping out under the stars for 14 nights... More

We were attracted to this outfitter because they boast on their website about their small group sizes. We signed up for a one boat trip. Then, the outfitter added a second boat to the trip about a month before the trip (without giving us any other options) doubling the size of the group. While this wasn't a problem going down... More

Azra is simply magnificent: organization impeccable, food outstanding, venue 2nd to none. Staff courteous, helpful, fun and friendly - impossible to imagine anyone not enjoying this level of hospitality and care in a challenging environment.

I just want to comment on the quality of guides that AzRA offers. I have never taken part in an AzRA commercial adventure, but as a private boater I've had numerous encounters with their guides. They have never failed to be friendly, engaging, informative and quite helpful--to whomever they come in contact. It's this attitude that keeps boating on the... More

Thank you Dennis for taking time to review your interactions with our guides, when traveling on the river on your private trips. Our guides try hard to communicate and have helpful interactions with others on the river, they appreciate your observations and kind words. More

Best trip of 4 months of cycling tours, trekking national Parks. Grand canyon from the river is just awe inspiring due to the 1200 m high shear walls which change in type and colour as the river has slowly eroded through millions of years of rock. The 5 boatmen were very skilled rivermen and women, but also could explain the... More

Absolutely amazing experience with a great company employing stellar guides. Full days on the river and/or doing amazing side hikes (tailored to individual abilities of various group members) were always bookended with great breakfasts, nutritious hearty lunches, and amazing dinners. Really, it was crazy what they could pull off 13 days into a trip without a grocery store in sight.... More
