We do at least one of their excursions every time we are in Vegas. The mine tour is great and we always love the Black Canyon river tour.

We were in Vegas for a week and decided to do something different. We booked the 3 hour, 11 mile cruise on the Colorado river, loading at the base of the Hoover Damn. We had a senior in our group that has difficulty walking. They were so accomidating, he was dropped off right at the loading sight! We absolutely loved it! The day was beautiful, about 80 degrees and sunny! The scenery was just amazing. We stopped at a great little beach for lunch and a short hike. Our tour guide was wonderful and conversated with our group the entire trip. We will book another trip with Black Canyon Adventure next year!

Worth the trip down the river, plus you get to see the bottom of Hoover Dam. The water isn't for swimming as it is only 50 degrees, but the scenery is incredible. Hot Springs, Frogs, Kayaking and someone was playing a native american flute down there. The best thing I have done in Vegas.

So glad we booked this tour....it's not as fast paced as a white water trip but that's what we wanted. Pick up and coach ride were quick and easy. We got a packed lunch and plenty of water on the trip and our guide was Dennis and he was great! It was hot (85/90f) and during the trip there isn't any shade so take sun block ! We sat up front and even after a warning that we would get wet we stayed there and guess what ? We got soaked but it was actually very cooling and 30 minutes later we were dry . We saw big horn sheep,hot springs and the tour started from the bottom of Hoover Dam which is an amazing view !

I can't say enough great things about this outfit! All the staff is professional and friendly. We enjoyed our raft trip on Sept 12, 2012. Jerry and Doug were our tour guides and what a great team they make! Jerry has a sense of humor that kept all 57 people on our raft laughing throughout. This is an awesome way to experience Hoover Dam and the Black Canyon. Absolutely breath taking views! Our raft was full of people from all different countries which, made the trip even more enjoyable. The day adventure is well worth the money.
