My husband & I did a private tour, & it was fantastic! The service was great, & the breakfast & lunch was yummy! Black Canyon is spectacular, & our guide Scott really knew his way around & showed us several amazing places that I don't think we would have found on our own or would have appreciated without his guidance/input....

We rented a few canoes with some family/friends and did a two overnight trip on the river. This Company is simply amazing! They bent over backwards to ensure we knew where we going down river to camp and see the sights! Les and his team, including Froto the dog, thank you so much for the excellent service! We had an...

My mom and I rented Kayaks for a full day paddle down the river and had an amazing time! The service we got was excellent. We were in a shuttle with one of the guides and some of his friends and they were really fun. When we got to the water at the bottom of the dam the view was... More

I went with my boyfriend and another family on the guided tour with Mike. It was absolutely beautiful, and something definitely worth seeing while you're in Las Vegas. I've lived here for 9 years and had never done it, I can't believe it! There are hot springs, cliff jumps, and beautiful scenery the whole way. Make sure to bring lots... More

I am 54 and my wife a couple years younger. She doesn't swim much and bravely decided to join me on a tandem kayak down the Colorado River. We had never kayaked together for more than an hour. On this trip, Les dropped us off at Hoover Dam at 8am with a map. He picked up two famished and thrilled... More

Great kayak trip from Hoover Dam launch to Eldorado Canyon pickup site. The distance is about 50 km. Perfect weather Feb. 9-11th. Picked up by Les and his lovely wife Susan who were very open to accommodating our needs. We choose to launch Sunday since no motorized boats except tour rafts allowed above Willow Beach Sundays and Mondays. Practically had... More

I vacationed in Las Vegas over the holidays and even though it was more chilly than expected, I came prepared as Les, the owner of Boulder City River Riders had prepped us regarding the weather and how best to dress for our adventure. I was very impressed with the knowledge of our guide and I felt safe, even though I'm... More

Les picked us up right on time. Scott was our guide for the trip. They were both great, very friendly and knowledgable and put us at ease. The decription is exactly what we received. We had never kayaked before. It was very easy to learn and alot of fun. We got to experience the sauna cave and the hot springs.... More

We got picked up in the morning and provided with a lunch pack and plenty of water. We then met our guide, Mike, who was there just for the two of us. He would also take pictures with his water-proof camera and mail them to us afterwards. Mike was friendly and knowledgable, with lots of humor. We were shown several... More

This was an amazing trip and definitely the highlight of our trip to Las Vegas. Scott was our knowledgeable, chill, and all-round perfect guide. Our trip started almost immediately with an incredible walk through a pitch black cave to a natural sauna, finding our way with only touch to guide us, followed by a jump into the chilly river. Initiated,... More
