We went on this trip in early July. We are NOT campers. I was very worried about sleeping outside, not showering and the whole "bathroom" ordeal. The views and the adventure were worth every discomfort I may have experienced! The guides are incredible. We rode with Lucky and Alex. Alex is the newbie and worked so hard to make sure... More

I went on this trip with high expectations for a "trip-of-a-lifetime" experience. It was even beyond that. I took my 12 year old grandson(minimum age for trip) and wondered how it would work. It was great. Yes, it is hot in the desert in July! No one can be comfortable in the blazing sun at 115 degrees. But gads it... More

Seriously. It is going to be difficult to convey the incredible nature of a trip such as this. We had done the 4 day trip on the lower river 2 years ago, and decided to do a 6 day from the top of the Canyon, bringing my brother and his wife along. What a great decision. From beginning to end,... More

This trip was incredible! The scenery was awesome with exciting rapids and fun side trips/hikes. The guides gave clear instructions which helped to keep us safe and gave history/geology information along the way. Also, the guides have a great sense of humor that kept us laughing. The food was awesome! This was a great bonding experience for my family and... More

This was a fantastic trip. Western River has orchestrated a vacation of a lifetime. Our guides were top notch, Evan, Alex, Lindsay and Marty you are the greatest. The food, the helicopter ride, the jet boats, you thought of everything. A wonderful adventure, the only way to take in the splendor of the Grand Canyon. Thank you for everything!

The time and effort that went into planning this 3-day event is very much appreciated. From the very beginning to the very end of this trip, everything was top-notch! It is so difficult to pin-point my favorite part of the trip... there were so many and a lot of firsts for me. The helicopter ride down into the Canyon was... More

This is a trip of a lifetime. Our guides were fantastic and there is nothing for them to improve on. For new guests these are my suggestions: have a strap for your water bottle, do take neoprene socks!!! and bring a rope for a clothesline.

My husband and I took our kids, son in laws, niece, and a girlfriend on the 4 day rafting trip. We flew to the Bar 10 Ranch on June 29, 2014, where we had a WONDERFUL time! The people who work there couldn't be nicer! We rode horses, tried skeet shooting, and rod the ATV's fairly close to the Grand... More
