This is a trip that we will talk about forever. It started off with the beautiful flight into the Bar 10 Ranch. Horseback riding and skeet shooting were big hits with our kids. I still can't get over how great the helicopter ride was going into the canyon. Our guides were knowledgable, fun, and could cook! The food was great,... More

I have taken a 4 and a 7 day float trip on the Colorado River with WRE. Can't say enough about their professional trips, the experience, the scenery, and the staff. Wanted to go again the minute it was over. I went in Sept for a 7 day float and the weather was perfect, even the rainy day was perfect!

I did the 3 day Grand Canyon trip with 5 friends this April. To say I was apprehensive was a massive understatement. I am not at all 'outdoorsy' and I am am not into extreme sports or camping. Despite my worries I had one of the best experiences of my life. All the positive things that are said about this... More

Total fun and excitement!! Rode in small airplane, helicopter, horseback riding, ATV riding and skeet shooting. Then 3 exciting days on the Colorado river on a raft and 2 nights sleeping on the beach under the stars. Be sure to bring waterproof camera and plenty of suntan lotion.

They are the consummate professionals. This is one of the best trips I've ever taken. Evan and Sammie are top notch guides and made this experience even better. The rafting, camping, hikes and food all exceeded my expectations. Every logistic was thought through and we made some new friends!
