Awesome Day!
Mar 2020 • Couples
This was a fantastic excursion and the entire crew was as professional, courteous, accommodating and as fun loving as any crew could ever be. Our guide was Sydney, and she was amazing. This is a must for anyone visiting the area.

Great full day white water rafting trip with the family
Mar 2020
Our family took the full day river rafting journey that included a guide, lunch and a return bus ride to our cars. We were all inexperienced white water rafters and a bit on the nervouse side. Our guide, Bama, put us at ease before we got on the raft. The views from the river were fantastic, the rapids were enough to get the blood pumping (I lost a paddle and he didn't make me feel like a dope), and the food at lunch was great (warm fajitas - as much as you can eat). We made the 2 hour drive to and from Phoenix and it was worth every bit of the ride through the canyons to get there. It's a great crew of people. If you are on the fence....do it.

Bama for the win
Mar 2020
I didn't think white water rafting could get any better until my family got Bama as our raft guide. If I were to go back, I would request him 100x over! Such a friendly, relaxed, funny guy that made the trip one to remember.
