Can’t Wait To Go Back

| August 24, 2016


I had so much fun on this trip! It was such an adventure.

The scenery is amazing and the remoteness made it a true vacation. The rapids were so fun I just laughed the whole way through.

Every detail was taken care of. The packing lists were thorough, I had everything I needed. The food was great and the guides made sure everyone was happy. The guides were also so much fun to hang out with. We played games and sat around the campfire and talked on the boat. We had some crazy weather but it made for an unforgettable trip! Taylor, Taylor, Ben and Alex were so much fun. I'd want them to be my guides on every trip.

The plane ride back was a perfect way to end the trip. Every vacation should end with a flight in a tiny plane over Canyonlands National Park!

Seriously, I can't wait to do the other trips Western offers and bring my kids along! So. Much. Fun!!

For a first time to Moab visitor this was an awesome experience. The tour or Arches National Park, the Hummer ride and of course the two day rafting trip were exceptional.

The personnel on each of the adventures were very friendly and helpful. The overnight rafting trip we such a great experience. We are looking forward to returning and taking it up a notch to some of the more intense white water trips offered.

I highly recommend this to anyone, especially families.

An Amazing Experience for the Entire Family

| August 23, 2016


I booked this trip for my family to honor and celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. In addition to my daughter (18 years old) we had my son (14 years old) along with my wife and myself. My son was skeptical when first told of the trip. He said that he liked "hotels and hot tubs and pools." Within the first few hours of our journey he looked at me and said that if the trip was going to be like this he was going to have a great time.

We were on the river the entire trip. In 5 days we covered 84 miles. The scenery was amazing, my daughter grew tired of me saying how beautiful everything was. The flight to the landing point was exciting and really added a lot to the trip. It was a great ride and a lot of it was over the river we were going to go down later that week. There was some hiking but not a lot. We saw wild sheep and a mountain goat. The weather was very hot (over 100) but with the low humidity it was bearable. Of course, when things got too hot we hopped into the river and it was so refreshing.

At night we choose to sleep outside and the night skies did not disappoint. There was no moon, so we were treated to milky way views that we could not see in New York. The bugs weren't too bad, we used lots of bug spray. The camaraderie that was built over the 5 days was amazing. There was a mix of young children and teen agers and great families. We all made fast friends and had a good time.

The guides were full of energy, insight and were extremely knowledgeable. They fed us and kept us moving and seemed to really love their jobs and being with us for 5 days of rafting. The food was great and there was more than enough. Three of us are vegan and they were EXTREMELY flexible and made sure we had what we needed for our diets. I can't say enough about the guides - Taylor (the leader), Emily, Drew, Stu and Mitch. WRE's best as far as we were concerned.

The rapids were tame at first but slowly built. There were a few class III rapids on the fourth day and they were quite challenging. This river is not for the adrenaline junkies, but is more than challenging and gave my son and his new friend a lot of excitement.

We had good weather and the water temperature was warm enough. We packed too many clothes and really only used two sets - underwear, T-Shirts, shorts, etc. At night my wife wore a fleece, but that was it. Never needed pants or the rain gear. We used LOTS of sunscreen and a hat was mandatory. There were umbrellas for the rafts, but most days strong wind gusts would blow them down.

When we got home my wife and children told me that this was the best family vacation we had ever taken! We look forward to our next river adventure next summer!

This was my second trip with Western River. I went with my dad when I was 18 and now went with my dad, brother, and nephew (15 years later).

We had a great time! Our guides were gracious hosts, great cooks, and made sure we had fun.

Awesome Adventure in the Grand Canyon

| August 18, 2016


Our family of four (daughter-17 and son-14) just returned from a fantastic vacation rafting (and camping) 188 miles down the Colorado River with Western River Expeditions.

The entire trip was a perfect blend of adventure, fun, breath-taking scenery, great food, education and safety. The guides were phenomenal working around the clock to make sure all guests were enjoying their trips. The training, experience and professionalism was evident when a serious tone was needed like before running a mega rapid, manuevering in treacherous areas or reminding us to stay hydrated. On the flip side, the personalities came out when chatting about Canyon folklore, answering questions or just cutting up while floating and sitting around camp.

We had a diverse group and the guides also did a commendable job of letting each guest stay within or push their limits on several hiking excursions to interesting sites. We would recommend this trip to anyone and will definitely return ourselves.

This was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. Being in the Grand Canyon is so spiritual and much more than seeing it from the rim.

Western River Expeditions provided the best professional personnel and equipment to make this trip. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in rafting down the Colorado River!

I was constantly amazed on the company's ability to move 36 people down the river while providing an amazing experience, history, adventure, great food, and comfort.

From the constant accessibility to cold water, to great meals, the staff goes above and beyond to accommodate EVERYONE with anything they can to make it a pleasant experience for everyone on the boat.
