In 1979, as a teenager, I went on my first week-long Grand Canyon trip with WRE; I went with my father and sister and we had a great time. Then, in 1994, I went again with WRE with my wife and several other couples; we had a fantastic experience and vowed to return someday with our children. Last month, in... More

Great trip from start to finish! Well organized from Marriott stay, to transfers, Bar 10 Ranch, rapids, camping and back to Vegas with an added bonus ... a torrential downpour while on the rapids. Met a great group of people. 4 day trip was perfect.

Our group for the trip was two senior couples. The bucket list is one item shorter now. Everything was extremely well organized. The guides, Ben, Sammy, Stephen and Johnny were professional yet personable and engaging every step of the way. This was a memorable way to see the Grand Canyon. It started on a bus, went to a plane, then... More

Amazing experience!! I just returned from taking my 14 year old son on the 3-day Grand Canyon trip, and it was fantastic! This company has it down to a science....from keeping you updated via email before your trip, to the trip itself. Our guides were knowledgeable and a whole lot of fun! I felt 100% safe in their hands. My... More

A trip rafting down the Colorado River is one of life's great experiences. Western Rivers is the company to go with. The guides are terrific. They know so much about the history of the area, the geology of the Grand Canyon, the Native American peoples of the Canyon, the Colorado River and its wonderful sites, the flora and the fauna....

You can actually purchase and count on an adventure of a lifetime. Just go on the 7 day Western Rivers Grand Canyon trip! It is ideal if you can get enough friends (14 total) to fill a boat - but outstanding regardless. Great for young and old - but helps if at least 4-6 are game to ride up front... More

My husband and I did the 6 night rafting in the Grand Canyon in June. I couldn't have asked for a better trip. The Western River guides are the best in the buisness giving geological and historical information around every bend. As one of the oldest rafting companies in the Grand Canyon they were prepared for everything. My husband and... More

This trip was remarkable, thrilling chilling everyday. The guides were incredible, knowledgeable, friendly, and meeting every need possible. However, the guests were not instructed to leave no human impact on the wildlife. Guests, caught lizards and put lassos around their necks in a leash fashion. On the side canyon hikes the guests urinated in the pristine aquatic habitats polluting the... More

The Trip Advisor location for Western River is a little misleading since thet run quite a few trips out of Moab, Utah. We did the lower Grand Canyon with them 5 years ago and had a fantastic time. So this time we decided to try the Green River 5 day trip through Desolation Canyon, starting in Moab. This is a... More
