Loved every minute... from booking to even the long uphill hike out! If it is on your... More

To celebrate 30 years of "wedded bliss", my husband and I decided to take the 13 day/12 night total canyon Oar trip in September. Mark one for the bucket list!! At first, we were a bit apprehensive being "off the grid" for 2 weeks, but after a few days, we relaxed and enjoyed the beauty of the canyon, the excitement... More

My husband and I loved our 7 day/6 night rafting trip through the Grand Canyon! We would recommend this trip to anyone looking for an up close and personal view of the canyon! It was the perfect blend of adventure, discovery, comfort and "roughing it." Our guides, Troy and Chris, Grant and Ron were wonderful, always willing to share their... More

This will be hard to keep it short. GCW was fabulous. From the moment we finished our hike from South Kaibab trail and we met up with the boats, the trip was fantastic. The guides were so accommodating and friendly. They made the trip so exciting. And the food- wow. I felt I was in a five star restaurant at... More

Really enjoyed our first trip on the Colorado through the Grand Canyon. Guides were awesome! We did the upper canyon with oar boats. We had time for hiking, swimming and enjoying great meals with great people the entire time. Can't wait to make another trip to complete the entire length of the Colorado River through the canyon. Great Time!!

Going down the canyon with this group is like hanging out with your favoite family members for an 8 day camping trip. It was great and the guides were a blast to hang with.

A fabulous trip - great guides, a lot of hiking, we lucked out with good weather at the end of August. GCW goes the extra mile to provide good equipment, all kinds of education and story-telling along the way, and an overall great experience.
