Fantastic trip as soon as you get past the 4:00 a.m. hotel pick-up. I really had a great time. The tour is well organized - from the stop for breakfast on the way from Las Vegas to Arizona, to the helicopter ride out of the canyon. The scenery was magnificent, the rapids were exciting, and the lunch was delicious. There was no shortage of snacks and drinks. A few suggestions: phone and speak with Cathy at Viator the number is online if you have any questions or concerns, bring a pair of gloves I used garden gloves because there is a lot of holding on to either a metal pipe or wooden seat, and lastly, don't wear white. They call it white water rafting but really it's brown water rafting because the Colorado River is so full of silt, it's brown, and your clothing will get dirty from it. We went in early September so, although the water was cold - refreshingly - the air was so hot that we were comfortable with shorts and a t-shirt. One part of the trip that I had difficulty with was the climb to the falls. I was wearing water shoes - that were wet - and my feet kept slipping so I was a bit nervous climbing on the rocks and up the rope ladder. Take care with this. Another suggestion, on the bus ride down to the river, sit in the front as the road is VERY rough I think part of it is through a somewhat dried up creek bed, not a road at all!. Also, if you plan on taking pics or a video while in the helicopter, ask to sit in the front or at the window behind the pilot. Most importantly, plan on having fun! It's a once in a lifetime trip and well worth the cost.

What a wild ride! A once in a lifetime bucket list experience. The staff was helpful and informative about what to pack before our departure from home as well as providing a detailed explanation of the events of the day. Our driver was punctual and safe. He also provided drinks and snacks for the ride home. A wonderful experience.

We had such an amazing time on our trip August 13th, 2015. I never write reviews but I just had to put how well we were taken care of on the drive there until we got dropped back off. Our driver Ron was so funny and just the greatest guy. You have to ask for him. The river rafting itself was just a great experience. I had never done anything like that and can't wait to do it again. I will recommend this trip to everyone I know. will be adding photos as soon as I download them.

This has got to be one of the best experiences we as a family have ever had. The Grand Canyon was amazing and the rafting was fabulous fun. Hold on tight though, wear plenty of high factor sun cream and get a hat with a string to hold it on. Your shoes / sandals have to have the toes covered in. They supplied plenty of water and the lunch was a lovely sandwich. Just remember to accept a bottle of water off your guide as you get off the raft as you may have a short wait for the helicopter out in the baking sun.
