Choosing 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.

I would recommend that instructions and information, shared by the guides while traveling down the river, be amplified some way. Enjoyed seating near the front and missed a lot of what was said. Distribution of the longer cots was not well organized. Turned out to be a first come first served and many longer cots were quickly gather for family members only five and a half feet. I'm 6' 1" and sleep with my feet hanging off several nights. Inquired as to how distribution should be done and was told weight was a factor...not sure what that meant?read less

Other people on the adventure were from Virginia, Boston area, and the Chicago area. We had a great, great group of people ages 14 to 70s and the guides were knowledgeable, friendly, fun, fun, fun. I always tell people about the river rafting trips in the Grand Canyon explaining that it is one of the best trips you can ever take. If you have been thinking about going, stop thinking and just book it. You will never regret it.read less
