We spent 6 days with our guides Ronnie, Jeff, Newme and Kiefer on two boats. This is the trip of a lifetime folks, you won't have any regrets. The boats are large and comfortable and easy to move around. You can sit up front and get splashed and then move to the back to warm up. The 6 day trip... More

I had been waiting to do a river rafting adventure for over 15 years so when the right time came up, I jumped on the opportunity to go, along with four friends. If river rafting down the Grand Canyon has always been something that you wanted to do, I don't believe that there is a better company to do it... More

It had been a dream of mine to raft on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, so this year I finally made it. I took my adult children, and we all had such a wonderful time. May is a good month; not too hot and little rain. Our guides with Western River were topnotch, and they were also wonderful... More

There is nothing like experiencing the Grand Canyon then by white water rafting down the Colorado River. Western River Expeditions does a fabulous job of ensuring everyone's safety while provided an experience to last a lifetime. The company is well run. Everything was exciting, from the plane ride to the canyon and the helicopter ride into the canyon where you... More

Raft the Colorado River with Western! They have the best rafts on the river. Some rapids are easier to navigate and you won't get totally drenched, but there are many rapids that will give you the ride of your life. And Lava Falls Rapids (rated 10) was unbelievable! On Lava Falls Rapids I lost both my hand holds on the... More

WRE put out some great video's to help me prepare and get appropriate gear for the trip (and you do need appropriate gear to get the most out of the trip). From the moment I arrived, right up until I left, the WRE guides worked their butt's off to make the whole experience as enjoyable as possible, and were very... More

We too the 3 day Colorado River river rafting trip. This is "by far" the BEST way to tour the Grand Canyon. Western River Expedition made the trip so seamless and awesome. We checked into our hotel a couple days before leaving for the trip. They had an information letter waiting for us. On the morning of the trip, a... More

Completed 7 day Grand Canyon raft trip on 6th May. Best trip ever in the best location with the most professional guides. This company is excellent in every respect, communication, quality equipment, safety and food. Wiley and Johnny are both the most experienced and most personable guides we have ever encountered. Would recommend this company. Also met the most friendly... More

My wife and I took this trip for our honeymoon, it was the most amazing vacation of our lives. I had never spent this much money on a vacation before, but it was worth every penny. We had no idea that the inside of the Grand Canyon was so beautiful. Every part of this trip was executed to perfection including... More

Western River took great care of us. All of the equipment was first rate. The guides were phenomenal. They had so much knowledge and enthusiasm to share and really made sure we got the most out of our experience. Hikes were optional, but gorgeous. They were relatively short, but rugged and posed quite a challenge to me at my age... More
