The friendly, knowledgeable guides made this trip very special for our family of 4. They maneuvered us through rapids, educated us about geology and history, sang and played guitar under the stars, cracked jokes, and cooked massive meals. The boats are a blast, and as hot as you think it might be, bring that rain gear -- the rapid splash... More

We travelled down river for 6 days (5 nights) in a big party of two rafts (28 of us). Lucky led the trip extremely professionally with the second raft led by Kelly. They rapids were exhilarating, camping entertaining, we ate well, laughed and talked and the highlight for me were hikes into side canyons. All the time surrounded by extraordinary... More

Fantastic Customer Service and Overall Awesome outfitters. Second to none. The guides cooked awesome breakfast & dinners everyday, and severed an excellent lunch daily. They have so much experience on the river. Between our two guides, they had logged over 400 trips between them, and they made it an experience of a lifetime. Western Rivers has the best boats, guides,... More

Fantastic four days, three nights trip down the Colorado River with western river expeditions. Every detail had been thought about, all the guides were delightful and for my husband (a non camper) the extra details like the chair, the camp bed, the hot tea, the loo with a view have (almost) converted him. Great fun and thoroughly recommended

We did the Green River 5 day tour as a family, and it was fantastic. Getting to know the guides over the 5 days was a highlight of the trip. There aren't too many rapids on this trip (2-3 per day), but it was great for swimming and relaxing as you float down the river. The guides provided great food... More

I have nothing but good things to say about the 6 day rafting trip through the Grand Canyon with Western Rivers. Our adult family of 6 had the time of their lives.
