These people are awesome, We are somewhat cumbersome seniors and these guys were very mindful and attentive of use. there were several rafts the day we went , There were younger adults and us and I'm positive that everyone had a great time. If you have a few hours or more to spend I highly suggest to go with these people .The guides knew all the right answers and history .

My sister and I did an overnight canoe trip through the Santa Elena canyon and had an amazing time. Tim and Annie were super capable guides who kept us safe, informed, amazingly well-fed, and super happy. It was a seamless operation that I would recommend to anyone looking for a unique adventure in big bend away from the crowds

This was a full day float. Good flow and big waves! Our two guides were excellent. Rye picked great lines through the rapids on the boat ahead and Andrew kept us on track and entertained us with all kinds of facts about local plant and animal life, area geology and history. It was loads of fun and we always felt safe.

We had a full day rafting through the Colorado and Dark canyons. The water level was fairly high which meant we were able to travel slightly further in the day. Our rafting guide Chris was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area and plant life.

I'd thoroughly recommend this trip if you are spending time in big bend

We had a spectacular 2-day canoe and camping trip on the Rio Grande in Santa Elena canyon. Asher from Big Bend Boating and Hiking was the perfect guide! He was very well organized and did all the heavy lifting to get our gear from the van, into the canoes, and to our campsite. He selected a great spot along the river to camp and took us on an incredibly fun hike up a side canyon after we had camp setup. Asher cooked a delicious dinner and breakfast, and made sure we had a nice campfire going to keep us warm. He made sure everyone was comfortable and kept us entertained with his great stories. As a bonus, we got to see a full moon light up the canyon at night – it was magical! We highly recommend Big Bend Boating and Hiking for any adventure at Big Bend!!

Seeing southwestern Texas and Carlsbad Caverns is an extremely rewarding experience made much better by the knowledge, personalities and organizational abilities of our group leaders, Erin and Josh. Erin handled the overall complexity of the trip and minor problems - missing parking spots, cactus spines, a sprain and a few wayward hikers - quickly and effectively. I am very pleased with the Company and would recommend their activities to all.

The Big Bend Boating and Hiking Company provided very skilled, experienced and knowledgeable leadership. Our adventures were wonderful. We learned lots of interesting information about all of the areas we visited and our leaders, Erin and Andrew, always guided us well in our hikes and kept us safe by emphasizing staying hydrated, etc. We would highly recommend this company for any trip you are interested in.

Erica Little and Big Bend Boating and Hiking Company guided our group of 20 "seniors" through several hikes in and around Big Bend National Park. I had a great time although I was unable to participate in one of the hikes. She made sure we had sufficient bathroom breaks, drank water, and looked out for those of us a bit slower. She provided great background info on the area and the people who live around there. I would definitely utilize their services again.

We visited during spring break in March, 2023 and did the half day river tour. We were a party of 12, including 5 kids. Our guides were Niq, Lindsey and Maggie. They were amazing guides and made our canoeing experience awesome! They were very patient with our group, answered all our questions and gave very thorough directions. At couple of places with rapids they all helped to pass our canoes. Will surely go with them again.

We had very windy conditions unlike what our guides Niq and Maggie had ever seen before. Between the current and the wind it was a rough go to head into the canyon. The inexperience of some
split the group, as they were unable to proceed up the canyon. This split the guide team as Niq dealt with getting those who needed to return to the launch site. We and another couple made it as far as Smugglers Cave (which is only a third of the way a normal trip would accomplish) and had lunch on a spit of sand. Both Niq and Maggie were knowledgeable, safety conscious and diligent. They had tough conditions to work with, but we still had a really amazing trip. So worthwhile!
