What people say
“I wanted to let you know how glad I am that I booked my trip with ARR. [It] was an amazing group of rivermen to spend 10 days in the grand canyon with! Every single one of your guides was knowledgeable about the area, fun and positive, and just full of laughter the entire trip. Your equipment was top notch as well and I felt safe and well cared for the entire time. In other words, I'm already planning my next trip with ARR! Thank you so much for making my first Grand Canyon trip absolutely unforgettable.”

“This was a trip of a lifetime. We enjoyed everything from the morning coffee, to the duffel line, from the stories on the river, to the songs sung around camp, to the delicious meals, to the breathtaking view around every corner. We loved the side hikes, camaraderie of the crew and passengers, and most all the time to get away from phones, emails, news, etc and just enjoy one of the most amazing wonders of the world. We felt like we were part of the canyon. I know I will carry this trip with me forever.”
