Last summer my wife and I took a 4,500 mile road trip with two of our grandchildren to see national parks. When in the Grand Canyon, the 13 year old looked down a mile, saw rafts and said with excitement and awe, "THAT'S what I want to do next summer." My son, that grandson and I just returned from a...

Call me cliche, but wow, what a trip! This was my 2nd run down the Colorado River with Grand Canyon Whitewater. To make it short and sweet, I highly recommend this company. They simply do a fantastic job. The river takes care of itself, so it's up to the company reps and their guides to give you something extra. My... More

Rafting the Colorado River has been on our list of adventures for a long time. We decided that this was the year (what better way to celebrate the National Park Service Centennial!) and booked a 7 day/6 night motorized rafting trip with Grand Canyon Whitewater. This trip was everything we had ever hoped for, and more. Our guides Jeff, Riley,... More

Thank you for the review, Kristin :) We feel the same way about that place -- once you've seen the canyon from its heart, a piece of it stays with you in *your* heart forever. More

My dad, nephews, and a very dear friend just completed the most amazing experience - 7 day / 6 nights rafting the Colorado through the Grand Canyon. Our outfitter - Grand Canyon Whitewater - was an exceptional group to deal with. From the first call to the last goodbye they truly gave quality customer service. Our river guides - Jeff,... More

Camping, whitewater, scenery, wonderfully informative guides. We began the trip with lots of information from the website but it did NOT compare to the real deal. This is the trip of a lifetime. We absolutely loved every day.

No matter how hard we try in the office, there are just no words to adequately describe the canyon and the river :) So glad you journeyed through the canyon with us. More

I just completed a 7 day/6-night rafting trip in the Grand Canyon with Grand Canyon Whitewater. I can’t say enough about just how amazing this trip was and what an incredible job our guides did to make this trip more than I could ever imagine.

We're so glad you had such an incredible experience in the canyon with us! It is a little sobering, when you stop to think about all the things that could go wrong in a wilderness setting like Grand Canyon. I am always grateful to be safe in the hands of our guides. More

My wife went on a trip with GCW with her dad when she was finishing high school. She loved it so much, she wanted to share the experience with me for our 10th anniversary.

What an awesome story, Garrett -- good on your wife for getting back to the canyon, and bringing you with her, and good on you for planning to bring your kids when they're a little older! We absolutely love introducing multiple generations to the canyon, and seeing people come back after years (or decades!) away from the river. It's such... More
