Our Whitewater rafting trip with Grand Canyon Whitewater was one of the best adventure trips we have ever taken! The guides (Brock, Ben, Chris and Trevor) were absolutely amazing with their knowledge of the river and the history of the canyon. The 135 miles traveled on the river were met with spectacular rapids and scenery, guided by our experienced crew.... More

We took a week-long motorized raft trip down the Colorado River last week. It was an awesome experience. The guides were excellent; the food was first class; and the tents, sleeping bags, chairs, and rafts were all in great shape. We had the time of our life riding down the rapids and exploring many of the side canyons with our... More

This was a trip on our bucket list and proved to be one of the greatest adventures of my life. My wife will post her own comments. The staff were knowledgeable, professional and highly skilled in handling the boats and the river. Everything was first class including the equipment, the food and everything we did and saw each day.

My boyfriend and I (late twenties) just got back from our 5 day rafting trip through the Lower with GCW and I'm still reeling. It was an unreal experience of sleeping under the stars, eating like royalty, experiencing Class IV rapids, and being in uninterrupted nature without technology (which was seriously soul-cleansing). I can't recommend this trip enough. Rafting the... More

Got to do this trip with four of my best friends and it was all-around exceptional. Great guides, spectacular scenery, wonderful tripmates. I feel so lucky I got to experience it. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

This trip was amazing. Far better than any vacation I've been on before. The guides were phenomenal and full of knowledge about the area. The water is extremely cold and the Arizona air is hot and dry. Chap stick and lotion are must haves. Sleeping under the stars and being completely shut off from civilization was very refreshing. Just bring... More

I highly recommend Matt, Bean, Tim and Holly as GC river guides. Matt has extensive knowledge of the canyon, its history and interesting fun facts. Tim, Holly and Bean were energetic and made the trip extra enjoyable.

I have been wanting to do this trip for quite some time. I am 73, and still healthy so now is the time. I traveled with my daughters adults 35 and 24. They were great help for me, and I was so proud that they pitched tents and participated in all of the hikes. I can say that I tried... More
