Grand Canyon Vacations

My wife Maz and I were on the late May 2018 Grand Canyon 6-day expedition. Roni and Jeff were our raft guides.

It was the most wonderful holiday that Maz and I have ever had. The scenery was out of this world, the guides, Roni, Jeff, Wiley and Scott were so knowledgeable, so helpful nutty and funny and very safety conscious, true professionals the whole time. The food that they cooked was phenomenal and as good, if not better than a restaurant should be. We cannot thank them enough for what they did for all of us on that trip.

There was only one thing wrong with the trip, WE HAD TO LEAVE at the end of the 6 days. We made some wonderful friends too, from all corners of the globe. The trip took me back to nature, rebooted if you like. Now, three weeks on we are still wanting to be back on the river again.

It must be a vocation for the guides not a job and to remember all our names at the end of the first day, WOW!!!! We will certainly recommend you to anyone that asks and some. Thanks for a fantastic time.

Our Grand Canyon vacation was an awesome trip of a lifetime. It was awesome, stunning and wonderful! Our trip exceeded all expectations.

Our Western River guides were exceptional, knowledgeable, fun and helpful.

At 73 years old, this was a bucket list trip. The meals were delicious and creative, rapids thrilling and sleeping under the stars heavenly!!

Thank you Western River Expeditions for taking such good care of us from registration to the final helicopter ride.

In addition to the fun and excitement of the usual Western River Expedition trip we had a nightly photography workshop that was organized by Royce Bair. This made both days and nights very interesting and exciting.

Our trip leader Mark (MP) was unbelievably skilled. We felt safe and in control even in the most difficult rapids. The force was clearly with him as he guided the craft through very challenging waters. Thanks Mark!!! Our co-pilot (swamper) Parker was very fun to spend time with as he shared his deep knowledge of the Grand Canyon. We all learned to appreciate those who had traveled the canyon before us. Parker also had the amazing ability to dart around the boat in the middle of the most difficult rapids as he rescued people who had lost their grip and position, especially in the front of the boat. When we ventured out on hikes and visits to waterfalls Mark and Parker worked tirelessly to make sure everyone was safe and made it back to the boat in good shape.

The food was excellent including the cowboy coffee. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were prepared with care and we had a very good variety of dishes over the week. The captains dinner the last night blew everyone away, thanks MP and Parker!

It is very hard to put a value on a memory this unique and special. The Grand Canyon is a magical place and our hosts made it possible to experience and enjoy a bit of that magic. Thanks!!!

Words can't even describe how much we enjoyed this trip! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU Western River for such an AWESOME experience!

The staff was AMAZING... The food was better than we have gotten in five star restaurants (we actually GAINED weight while on this trip!) and the memories we made will last a lifetime. The staff went above and beyond all expectations - from the moment we were picked up until the moment we were brought back - I can't say enough good about the staff. They made sure my vegetarian/dietary needs were taken care of and they even provided my 6'5" husband a longer cot than everyone else's to ensure his comfort so he would get a good night's sleep each night. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the canyon, it's history and ecosystem, which added tremendously to our trip.

We are already saving/planning to do it again next year and bring our children with us this time. Just an all around wholesome and life changing experience. THANK YOU again! We will be back!!

The six day Grand Canyon trip on the Colorado River was fantastic, unbelievably beautiful, enlightening, and fun.

We started with a large group of friends and then met a few more on our boat. In a very short time we were good friends with everyone on both boats. I give our guides Paul and Greg Newton most of the credit. They were informative, interesting and a lot of fun.

Rapids, stopping at waterfalls, Havasu Canyon, swimming in the little Colorado.... all incredible. Not being much of a camper, the cots and outdoor living were great. The Big Dipper overhead every night! You pack everything in and everything out. How they do it is beyond me. Two very functional toilets and food beyond belief. Huge gourmet meals and great coffee every morning.

I would put this in the top 2 or 3 vacations we have ever taken. Highly recommend it!
