My wife and I took the Black Canyon/Colorado kayak tour on 7th October. We had telephoned to reconfirm our booking the day before and sure enough the following day we were picked up on time. After checking in and given a safety briefing we travelled to the base of the Hoover Dam to unload our kayaks with our guide Jake... More

We had a family group of 6 including my 83 year old mom and we had a great time. Our guide-Reed and Gary were simply the best. The Colorado River and Black Canyon were beautiful. A big horn sheep ran through our camp-twice-much to our delight. The food was great-the hot springs wonderful-the company entertaining. We took the 2 day... More

We went on a canoe trip, and had the time of our lives. This is a company of excellence. The experience was beyond my expectations. I was a beginner paddler, that received the perfect amount of attention for comfort and safety. All the equipment was top notch along with our guides. I highly recommend Desert Adventures for any expedition.

A really good trip with an excellent guide in Dan who kept us informed on the history of the dam, caves, hot springs all the way down. As our camera battery went dead Dan took some pictures with his own and emailed them to me before I had got back to the hotel. Great stuff. Pick up was on time,... More

We took a 12 mile black canyon kayak trip down the Colorado river that began at the Hoover dam. It was breath taking. We stopped every 3 miles or so and did some light hiking. Saw the most amazing views. The guide was great. She was prepared for anything...even when my husband fell in. Highly recommend this.

While on our recent trip to Las Vegas we decided to go kayaking on Lake Mead. Our tour guide, John, was very patient with my husband and I who were first time kayakers from New York. We set off paddling across the pristine lake and taking in the breath taking views. John made me feel comfortable from the start. He... More
