After having visited the Grand Canyon several times, hiking, and camping there, I thought that I had seen everything there really was to offer there. I was wrong. This is an amazing new way to experience the Grand Canyon. This trip was so much fun, very safe, and yet still adventurous. I had a blast and got some amazing pictures!!... More

We are very fit and adventurous 60 somethings. So after a week hiking and camping in Idaho wilderness areas it was time to do some unfinished business outstanding for 40 years - the Grand Canyon raft and hike. We have done a small amount of day rafting but not a long trip so I was a bit unsure. We had... More

I chose this company based on the trips offered and on the reviews of others, and I have no regrets. Everything was exceptional from beginning to end. My husband and I want to do this again in a couple years with this company, only take a longer trip next time and go a different time of year. We did the... More

Amazing trip. The guide know a lot about the history of rock formations, the ancient peoples there, historic sites, rapids, and side hikes. At no point did I feel unsafe in the rapids, they were exciting and require you to hang on but were never too violent and scary. The 6 day trip was a little long for me since... More

Love the Grand Canyon and seek different ways to savor it. This whitewater rafting trip has been the best so far. The guides are experienced, smart, knowledgable and create an aura of safety for even inexperienced rafters. Our guides, Troy and Ted, taught us geology, history and even read tall tales from other rafting guides. Lots of fun and we... More

Hiked down the GC and took raft for 5 days. Great Trip with sons and one grand son. The River was great, the rapids fun and scenery fantastic. Especially liked the side hike, wish we could have had more. The GCW Guides were very competent and handled boats well. Food was quite good and plentiful. Got some good photos and... More

My adult son and I had a wonderful father-son trip through the Grand Canyon, thanks to Grand Canyon Whitewater. We did the 4-day trip from Lee's Ferry to Phantom Ranch, and then hiked out of the canyon. GCW provided everything we needed. The guides were very competent at handling the two rafts our group traveled on, and were very friendly... More

GCW did a wonderful job of coordinating the trip and making it so easy for their guests. All we had to do was show up at one location by a certain time and they handled all the logistics from there. The guides were very nice and accommodating and always had a smile on their faces. I was very impressed with... More
