Our 7 day Grand Canyon rafting trip was one of the best vacations we've ever experienced. Our leader, R.D., and "swamper" Johnny took good care of us by making us feel safe while having a wild ride, feeding us like royalty and telling us many tales-all true. The side hikes were spectacular, the camping was comfortable and the starry nights... More

We were recommended by clients, we opted for the 6-7 day river-rafting experience. I basically came along for the ride, my husband encouraged me to join him for the week. Western River Expeditions is a wonderful company but more importantly was our experience with Captain RD, our wonderful guide / chef Johnny & also Kole who was assisting the guys... More

Being in the travel excursion myself, I have to say that Western Rover Expeditions is top notch. Our guides RD and Johnny with the extra crew member Kol work very hard to make the trip exceptional. The 7 day Grand Canyon trip is totally awesome. My wife and I loved every minute of the trip.

An absolutely extraordinary experience...greatly enjoyed the spectacular views of the Canyon at river level and the excitement of running multiple rapids plus great side excursions to waterfalls and Indian ruins. Camping out under the dense tapestry of stars was another highlight...not a burden. But what made it truly exceptional were the very savvy and experienced guides who added rich educational... More

I have just completed the 7 day/6 night 188 mile river trip and I would need a huge number of words just to begin to describe how good the trip was. From the initial inquiry to the final drop off back at my hotel in Vegas it was a great and fantastically organised trip. Our guides RD and Jonny were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this adventure of rafting through the Grand Canyon for 6 days. For my husband it was a nostalgic trip down the same rapids he had spend a month kayaking 39 years previously. Our trip with Western River was 188 miles whereas he had continued a further hundred miles, below our takeout point, on to Lake Mead. Of... More

We did the 4 day three night trip with the start at the Bar Ten Ranch. Shotgun shooting, horse back riding, ATV, BBQ, entertainment, shooting stars, tour plane, helicopter, sucking rubber, great guides, cliff jumping, waterfalls, epic views, world class guides, delicious food, community, adventure, camping ... a perfect trip. My 9 year and 12 year old said it was... More

I had never written a review on-line before and since I used Tripadvisor to find Western River Expeditions, I knew I had to return the favor. There are not enough words to describe this trip adequately. I went for my 40th birthday with my husband on the August 31-Sept 5 6-day expedition and I will cherish the experience as long... More

We can't say enough about our 3 day rafting trip with western river expeditions. The rafting experience was exhilarating. Our three meals a day plus snacks were almost gourmet. How the crew did it is beyond me. From the home made spaghetti, salad, chicken wings to start, cheesecake, shrimp cocktail, steaks....the list goes on. The cots were extremely comfortable, and...
