Perfect in every way! While the Grand Canyon and Colorado River are undoubtedly spectacular in their own right, the professionalism and savoir faire of the crew made this experience phenomenal. The timing of meals and daily start up on the river flowed beautifully. The wonderful stories and River lore held us spellbound. I couldn’t have asked for anything more

Incredible experience. The raft was big and safe, the crew was knowledgeable and friendly. We did the 3 day trip and it was perfect. It is the best way to see the Grand Canyon, at ground level. If you like geology, you will be in heaven. A trip of a lifetime. Slept under very bright stars and the food was unexpectedly great. Very highly recommended, would go again on a heartbeat.

Amazing views of the Grand Canyon that you could never see any other way but on the river! We felt so taken care of- from safety on the raft to yummy meals and camp sites as comfy as possible. Travelers should remember they are "in the wild" and will be roughing it a bit!

Just returned from the 6-day, 5-night trip down the Colorado River. Let me start off by saying this was an amazing adventure. Traveling the canyon by J boat is the only way (in my opinion) to fully see the Grand Canyon. I can not say enough about the staff on the trip from Western River, extremely professional in everything they did. After 6 days with them I felt a true friendship with them all. The food/meals, adventure and the stories of the canyon made the trip one of the best I’ve been on. Thank you, Western River, and especially the crew (Poco, Steven, Mackay and Emily). You can not get any better representatives of a company than these four. Thanks to all for some great memories.

Just finished our 7 day trip with Western River - I can't speak highly enough of this trip and the company. It was a once in a lifetime experience! If you are interested in rafting the GC, don't hesitate to book with Western River! We were lucky enough to get Justin, Stephanie, Reece, and Travis as our guides and we all talked about how much we missed them when our trip was over. Their skillset and knowledge allowed us to relax and enjoy the trip, knowing we were is safe and capable hands. The food was excellent, and the accommodations were unparalleled in the canyon. Even thought the weather did not always cooperate, we had a fantastic time, courtesy of our guides. Please, if you are on the fence about a company - look no further than Western River!
