John was an awesome guide. He navigated us perfectly on the river. We were also happy to avoid the massive crowds on the rafts from other companies.

We like those smaller groups and getting the private experience is a real must. Come see us again and take in the canyons for overnight and you'll truly be away from the crowds. Thanks for your review.

The guides make all the difference! Not only were the extremely competent and safe, they were knowledgeable, playful - and felt like friends. They went out-of-their way to engage the kids.
