This is a fantastic way to experience the Colorado River and Grand Canyon on a very up close and personal level. This was a motorized rafting trip, motors are very quiet and the guides got us on 2-3 side canyon hikes a day that really made the trip from seeing waterfalls and caverns to enjoying the confluence of the Colorado...

"Excellent trip with an excellent crew. They all truly love their job. They are hard happy workers. They looked after our needs even if we didn't think we needed it. The day we went to Havasu Creek as we were leaving it started to rain. My sister and I got wet before I had a chance to put on our... More

We went on a 9 day rafting trip on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Our boatmen/women, Mikenna and Dewey were wonderful, accommodating, and most important, kept us all safe and happy. The hikes we took were to indescribably beautiful places, every one. So grateful to have had this adventure

This company could not have done more to make this an experience of a lifetime. Our boatmen and helpers were ALWAYS upbeat, extremely helpful, conscientious, and knowledgeable. They always did everything to try to accommodate our needs. We enjoyed those spectacular skies and that incredible river and its history.

I just got back from seven days on the Green River with a tremendous crew from CRATE. They are all professionals and know the canyon well. This is a very first class operation put on by first class people. I will be sending an email to create management commending the entire staff

It was an excellent and memorable experience. the people from CRATE did an amazing job guiding the trip. From their personal knowledge and years of experience to the enthusiasm they have for the canyon itself. They made the trip a complete experience.

Outstanding! Did 8 days and 7 nights in May 2015. Guides were amazing, views were spectacular, food was delicious, hikes were outstanding ! The only thing I would have done differently is I would have brought rain pants to go with my rain jacket. Thanks, CRATE, for the trip of a lifetime!!

Great trip. Extremely well organised. Staff were both professional and friendly. Felt challenged yet safe at all times. The food was very good and plenty of it. Sleeping under the stars with the river roaring by was an experience we will never forget.
