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.

We had knowledgeable and helpful guides, all of the food was very good and even our kids liked it, the rapids were a blast and the daily side trips made the trip unforgettable. The helicopter ride out at the end was also very cool. Highly recommended vacation!read less

First...there is the river rafting down the Colorado through the Grand Canyon. So amazing going through the incredible geological layers. Our guides were fantastic sharing their knowledge of the layers and ages. It was awesome. Then there was the beach camping under the stars. Wow. Waking up in the middle of the night and seeing the most brilliant stars of my life was beyond words. Then there was the food. OMG. Salmon, Baked Pasta, Steaks, Pork Chops, Mexican, a Stir Fry....These people know how to enjoy the back country, and they made me enjoy it too! The experience was amazing, and your life is not complete with out it.read less

Needless to say this trip exceeded all expectations.
Our guides gave us the most amazing adventure. Typical day was ... breakfast, load boats, run rapids, hike slot canyon, lunch,run rapids, hike waterfall, find camp dinner, sleep repeat. It was never boring.
I feel fortunate to have been with the group that we were with however according to them all the trips are like that.
I cannot recommend this outfitter highly enough. Enjoy!read less

I would highly recommend this trip to everyone I know! I was concerned at first being vegan and wondering what options for food I would have on this week long trip. I have to say I was more than pleased with all of the meals and options provided. The crew was amazing to say the least. They were so accommodating and so fun! They were always making sure everyone had everything we needed and were having a good time. They were a wealth of knowledge of history and funny stories as we were rafting down the river. The views and side hikes were amazing as well. There were so many great memories made, and it was such a great way to meet a lot of interesting and friendly people who are all there for different reasons but definitely for one similar reason, the love of the great outdoors! Thank you Arizona River Runners for an amazing experience and memories I will never forget.read less
