Passenger Reviews

Group photo of people smilingChoosing a company for your Grand Canyon adventure isn’t easy, and we admit we’re more than slightly biased recommending Arizona River Runners. But don’t just take it from us, see what others are saying.

We often hear from guests that it is difficult to find the words to explain their experience. As John Wesley Powell said, “the wonders of the Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols of speech, nor by speech itself.” Thankfully, many people have done their best to describe their journey and thoughts with potential guests. We hope their words help paint a picture of what awaits you in the canyon.

5 star ratingTrip of a lifetime The trip of a lifetime. I did the 8 day full canyon rafting trip along the Colorado. The trip was very well organised with excellent staff on both the boats. Be prepared to get very wet and possibly cold as the river was only in the 50s when I went in May. You will however forget being wet and cold when you look at the amazing scenery. The meals prepared by the crew were excellent and the quality of the equipment provided very good.

5 star ratingGreatest experience of our lives. The Grand Canyon is amazing. Arizona River Runners is an exceptional company with highly professional and extremely skilled staff. Tristin, Holly, Sean and John are exceptional guides. They took care of all our needs and made the trip very enjoyable. I highly recommend Arizona River Runners to anyone thinking about rafting the Colorado River. Don't think about the adventure -- do it now.

5 star rating9 Day River Tour My trip Apr 26 to May 4 2024 far exceeded my expectations. The crew was so knowledgeable and professional while at the same time super personable and humorous and humble. Great experience and I will highly recommend Arizona River Runners! I went with Canyon Ministries and heard the canyon presented from a Biblical perspective. A real game changer and so much more plausible then a little water over long periods of time. The proof is in the rocks.

5 star ratingArizona River Runners is the organization to go to for Grand Canyon trips. I went on a two week oar trip down the Colorado, through the Grand Canyon with Arizona River Runners. It was phenomenal. The Canyon is beyond beautiful, and spending 2 weeks there enabled us to move slowly and do hikes and see more of the Canyon. And Arizona River Runners is a great organization -- each of the river guides were amazing, skilled, insightful, knowledgeable about the Canyon and the Native peoples who were the original inhabitants. I would highly recommend taking a Grand Canyon river trip with them.
