This is a great time! If you're ever in town and have a day to just relax. It's tones of fun.. Make sure you leave early and have a sober driver...

This was a great trip (we did the one day trip) and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting or living in AZ. The company was very organized and the raft guides were very nice and laid back. More importantly, they knew their stuff and how to 1.have fun 2. keep clients safe. The area is absolutely beautiful and on... More

I booked a trip for me and 10 of my colleagues as a team building activity. What an awesome trip from beginning to end. The staff was very professional and made everyone feel at ease, especially those that felt their swimming skills were not very strong. Brian gave an excellent safety and training lesson before we entered the water. Our... More

Had a wonderful day rafting the Salt with my wife and the great Johnston family. Kady our boat guide was friendly and had us running the rapids in style. Thanks SRR!

My wife and I took our two teenage daughters for a two day trip just before Easter and had a great time. The food was well planned out and delicious. Our guide, Flint, has a culinary background and always added the right touch to each meal. Each guide we encountered was friendly, outgoing, and great at anticipating our needs, not... More

So glad to hear you agree with running the 2 day raft trip this way. It is pretty neat to run a small part of the river (3miles) twice at different times of the day and there is the huge convenience of car camping at our base camp. Our 3-5 day trip is the way to see the whole river... More

Me and my friend took our 14 year old sons on a full day trip during their spring break. Glad we did. The staff was fun and knowledgable and provided for a great trip. Scenery is amazing. Best part about it was no cell phone coverage so you can really get away. Would recommend to everyone.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and here is to hoping cell coverage never enters the Salt River Canyon! Possible bumper sticker "Cell no to coverage, Keep the SRC disconnected!" More

This was my first time whitewater rafting, and I am really grateful that it was with this company! They were professional, fun, and very patient! I went with a group that was celebrating a friend's 60th birthday, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate! Absolutely everything was provided for in the way of equipment, and they gave...

My 13 year old son and I were in Phoenix for a week and decided to book this trip. We're SO glad we did. I have only rafted once, and it was a first for my son, and we both thought it was fabulous! The guides were super, the trip was a blast, the scenery spectacular, and we were blessed... More

I vote BEST review ever! You had a trip that captured what we as the owners and guides love about the Salt River Canyon. Everyday is different with its own challenges and victories and surprises. The only thing we know each morning before work is that we are going to have a blast and not be bored. Thanks so much... More

We just came back from taking the full day raft trip. I would recommend SRR to anyone who's interested in having a fun day on the river with a great staff and meeting new people. The guides with SRR are extreamly professional, very safety oriented, knowledgeable about the local area and super fun! We did some Class III rapids but... More

Thank you Gretchen for your review. Aaron is definitely not your loud, bragging guide and yet he is the one who has probably done more crazy stuff in a raft on his own than anybody out there. The crew at SRR this year has just been outstanding, my hat is off to them and hoping they all come back next... More
