We took a group of 10 high school students on the Salt river with Brent, Olivia, and Glen for a 4 day trip that was absolutely amazing. The guides were great, the food was delicious, the kids had the time of their life’s.

our river rafting experience was epic!!! From the time we pulled up looking lost because there is other rafting outfits there till the time we drove off we had a warm fun atmosphere. For a river is souly controlled by the amount of snow pack and rain the rapids were great! Not to mention the amount of scenery to take in with the history of the area. Remember we are rafting through the white mountain apache indian tribal lands! So with our guides plethora of knowledge of the river and land made this river trip one to remember!! Thank you

I've been doing this trip annually with a middle school group and it is the highlight of the year. The scenery is incredible, the rafting is exciting - particularly this year with high water, and guides are fantastic. My only reservation in sharing this review is that more folks will go to the Salt where the solitude of the canyons and the beauty of the
desert is so appealing.

We had a great time in the Salt River. We always use Wilderness Aware and brought new friends with us this time. One person had some issues with balance and they were able to work with him and put him in the middle. The waters were flowing great. Our staff person was amazing! Making the reservations and getting ready couldn’t be any easier. We can’t wait to go again. Next time will be a full day adventure!

My wife and I were in the Phoenix area for 5 days. Decided to go white water rafting on the Salt River with Wilderness Aware. Highlight of the trip! Scenery and rafting were spectacular! Our guide, Justin, was very skilled and knowledgeable of the area. He shared entertaining, historical stories of the local people and sites during our 10 mile trip down the river. Plenty of fun rapids! Could only take photos when water was calm.

Was the water dangerous? Yes it was. Did I feel safe with my crew? Yes I did. With a snug life jacket you are about as likely to drown as a cork is to sink. My crew was fun and there were many laughs. Our guide was well educated and informative. The fajita lunch was great and enough to keep me full all day. I’ll definitely be doing this again next year!

I'm adventurous and well traveled... always looking for and making the best of every situation. But, with rapids, especially for first timers, safety is vital and the guide we were assigned (she will remain anonymous here, reach out to me if you want her name, so you can request another) did not communicate well; not enough volume or clarity with rowing, and more importantly not much focus on the vital techniques to not get dumped in the water when it gets rough (tucking your feet under holds, etc...) and seemed generally distracted. She was very pleasant, a real sweetheart, actually. But, I didn't feel entirely safe in her hands... and if we go again with this outfitter I would not ride with her. Given that the founder is so experienced, I was surprised she was on the team. Maybe she was having an off day...

The weather was gorgeous, the river was roaring, and the day spent with my friends was wonderful.

Thanks for your honest feelings. I have requested more details in a message to you and will follow up with that guide. We put so much effort into training our guides that it is disturbing to hear when one of our guides fall short.

We visited in a group of 12. The trip was A-mazing! The water flow was perfect and our guide was AWESOME! We had such a great time that many of my coworkers now want to do a trip next year. Thank you to all the guides who made our trip one to be talked about for years to come.

The office loved it. Some had never rafted and can’t wait to go back. The guides are always knowledgeable and friendly. This was my 6th trip with Wilderness Aware.
