Three days of rafting in the middle og the most beautiful place on earth, without watches, phones or internet. Competent, knowledgable and very friendly guides taking care of everything. It doesn't get better! We were a group of 16 ranging from 11-77 years, and everybody enjoyed it!

We did ours during a "FULL MOON". Go ahead and laugh, but until you experience it, you will not understand how amazing it was. The crew even baked a birthday cake for one of the guest, it was his 50th and he had his two children with him. Met people from all over the world. I was 34 and my... More

My son and I took a 7 day rafting trip down the Grand Canyon. It was the best trip I have ever taken. I had been to the top of the Grand Canyon 3 times, but it looks so much different from the river. The food is GREAT, and all the accommodations are very good. The guides took care of... More

We took the 3 day adventure as a package from Las Vegas, where we met in the outskirts of Las Vegas at a hotel (Desert Rose) at 6am, enjoyed a quaint breakfast and boarded a bus to a little nearby airport. We took a scenic short flight to the "international airport" that supports the Bar 10 ranch and were bussed... More

What a way to see the Grand Canyon! We did a 6 day trip in August 2012, and it is one of the best trips/ experiences we've had in all our travels. Adventurous days, relaxing nights with great company under incredible skies, and 3 delicious square meals a day. I was a little worried about the "roughing it" aspects to... More

I went on this trip to celebrate my 40th birthday - which was the last day of the trip and it was completely unforgettable. We flew in to bar 10 ranch and then took a very exciting helicopter ride into the canyon to meet the boats. The crew even made me a camp oven cooked iced and decorated birthday cake... More

This trip was one of our best adventures yet. The views of the Grand Canyon from the bottom were spectacular. Out guides Ronnie and Jeff were excellent so much fun and took great care of everyone. What was amazing is how they transform from guide to chief and care taker within minutes. The food was excellent fresh baked muffins for... More

We just completed a seven day trip and the trip far surpassed my expectations. The scenery is beautiful and the trip is very exciting. We had Lucky and Justin as our guides and their knowledge and confidence inspiring demeanor made the trip all the more fun. I cannot imagine there could be a better guide team. As noted elsewhere, the... More

Was an adventure of a lifetime! We saw 8 beautiful waterfalls emerge after a downpour. We ate like kings and queens and our guides (Newt and Kurt) were fabulous and the best chefs ever. We got to see bighorn shee
