We provide half-day and full day tours that are perfect for the entire family (kids aged 4 and up). Departing from the scenic town of Page, Arizona, your trip will begin with an exciting and exclusive ride down the two-mile long Glen Canyon Dam access tunnel. At river level, with the dam soaring 700 feet above you, you will board a comfortable pontoon raft for your journey downstream. While on the River, you will experience one of the most dramatic stretches of river in the western United States. Your experienced guide will tell the story of the area’s soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, abundant wildlife, exploration by Major John Wesley Powell and others, and the river's modern role in the Southwest’s water and power delivery system.A stop to view an impressive set of ancient petroglyphs will offer a you chance to stretch your legs and enjoy your lunch while bearing witness to the area’s former inhabitance by ancient native cultures. If you choose, you may also refresh yourself by wading in the cold, clear river. Come and visit the river that we love... You'll be inspired! « less

I had high hopes for this tour and it was good without being spectacular. Given that you pay close to $100 for the trip, there wasn't the beautiful scenery I had hoped for or much to see along the way. My 6 year old daughter was bored very early on. If I had my time over again, I'd probably skip... More

This was a great experience. The trip was pretty cool, starting from the dam and going down the river quite a few kilometers. Our guide, Brent, did an AMAZING job with the group. In spite of being quite a heterogeneous mix of people, he managed to keep everyone entertained with great facts about the river and the Grand Canyon itself.... More

we took this trip with a group of four and we had a really really good time!. We started at CRD's office....A couple good things to keep in mind is that you need to keep all your stuff in a clear plastic bag. We were not told this prior to our trip and so when we were standing in the... More

I have visited Horseshoe Bend many times. This view from the river was very cool and a lot of fun. Our guide was new at the job but he made sure we were safe and had a good time.

We did the half-day trip today with our three kids (two 15-year-olds and one 8) and everybody loved it - we can't do anything but reinforce the other positive reviews. Be sure to double-check what you're bringing with the staff when you arrive and be prepared to run back to the car several times to leave behind items like camera... More

My husband I and I booked the half-day trip Saturday 4-5-14. We were so excited even on the bus ride. We couldn't believe what we were about to see. Once onboard the raft, our fellow travellers all remarked how lucky we were to be looking at the Grand Canyon so close. That was when the guide told us it wasn't... More

My wife, two teenagers and myself found this 1/2 day trip on the Colorado River to be very relaxing and enjoyable. I made the reservation online the evening before the trip and everything was smooth and organized. The lunches made at the departing location were pricey but worth it (around $12). The staff was friendly, efficient and very professional. We... More

My husband & I took our kids (ages 14 & 10) on the full day ride down the river with Tiffany. Captain Tiff was amazing - very patient, funny, full of great information & clearly in love with her job. The ride was relaxing & informative. The included lunch was great as was the pit stop on the beach. There... More
