My wife and 20 year old daughter just returned from a 6 day/night non-motorized raft trip down the second half of the Grand Canyon. I'm probably not eloquent enough to describe how happy I am with WRA -- just be assured that they are Awesome! From the start where we met Allison at 5 am in the Bright Angel Lodge... More

Two years ago we took a 4 1/2 day motorized trip of the lower Canyon. We loved it so much that we could not stop talking about it to everyone. Before the trip ended we had decided at some point we would come back and do the 8 day motorized. We mentioned it to some friends who wanted to join... More

To be honest, when myhusband proposed taking out 12 & 14 y.o. daughters on a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon I said "OK when and how?" We booked with WRA because the dates worked. Having never done this sort of thing before we didn't have anything to compare to. Perhaps there are other companies who offer great trips and... More

How does one describe the indescribable? I read five books in preparation from Powell's account to the Emerald Mile to Native American History. My heart was pounding when I considered our precious family at risk on Crystal or Lava Rapids and how I might feel about their safety as we plunged into their midst. I had special concerns for my...

We had an amazing 4.5 day motorized GC rafting trip with WRA, starting at Phantom ranch boat beach. The 10 mile hike down Bright Angel Trail was both scenic, and quite challenging due to the high temps (130F in the sun). Our advise to others is bring LOTS of water, food, and good walking poles as this will make the... More

Our family of 17 took a 6 night motorized trip. All agreed that the guides expertise including running rapids, hikes, activities for ages 11-72, and cooking fabulous meals including two birthday and one 50th anniversary cake exceeded our expectations. Thanks for the memories.

Our family just flew out of the Grand Canyon today. 16 of us embarked on a 8 day power boat trip down with Wilderness River Adventures. From day one WRA brought the right people with the right knowledge to the right place. Our family, which is well traveled and well fed all agreed, there was very little we would change... More

We had never been to the Grand Canyon and after much research decided to go out of our comfort zone and take a motorized eight day river rafting trip down the Colorado River. We chose Wilderness River Adventures and were extremely pleased. Our guides, Carrie, Brett, Siobhan, and Tyler, had every part of our adventure perfectly orchestrated. They navigated the... More

We have done 9 rafting trips in the last 25 years with the folks from WRA . Every trip is unique. The guilds have always been great, the food is awesome, the side hikes are stupendous and the memories are priceless. I would book a rafting trip with them every year if I had the time. Our favorite trip is... More

Our 8 day motorized Colorado River trip with Wilderness River Adventures through the Grand Canyon was absolutely a wonderful experience filled with exciting rapids, beautiful canyon walls and sandy beaches. We want to thank our River Guides, Carrie, Brett, Siobhan and Tyler. Along with navigating the raft, preparing the meals, setting up camp spots and tending to blisters, aches &... More
