We went kayaking for the first time in our lives. Black Canyon was beautiful. The Colorado River was bathtub-calm, emerald-green, and clear. Our guide (Reed) was knowledgeable, responsible, and fun. The pickup and drop off at our hotel made this very convenient. We would do this again on our next visit to Las Vegas.

Did the Hoover dam to Willow Beach kayak and hike. It was fantastic. Guides Moshe and Reed were great. Energetic, thoughtful, had everyone's safety and fun in mind. Took great care of us. Wife and I felt we were in really good hands. Working with them was extremely easy (purchase, planning, arrival, trip, finishing). Everything was pretty much on time... More

This review is being posted belatedly. We did the trip in mid August. It was a great trip; one of the highlights we missed, though, was the Arizona Hot Springs--we were told it had been washed out When I was about to post, I noticed that the previous reviewer mentioned climbing the 20 foot ladder to the Arizona Hot Springs,...

This is so much better than a day in the casinos or on the strip! We opted for the full day kayaking trip, launching from the base of the Hoover Dam and paddling 12 miles down the river. The views were absolutely amazing, our guide was cheerful and friendly, and we spotted some wildlife along the way. The stop at... More

Took 7 friends on this day kayak trip through the Black Canyon to celebrate my 50th! Was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. The scenery was breathtaking and the hiking, soaking in the hot springs and waterfalls were out of this world. Our guide, Regina (Reg), was knowledgeable and encouraging. While the kayaking isn't for the beginner... More

The day started w/ us getting picked up at 6:30 , a short drive to the shop where we met our guide Jerol. Apologies for the spelling. We then hopped over to a meeting spot where we picked up a few other passengers from another group. On the way to the lot Jerol entertained us w/ some stories and told... More

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
