Amazing Rafting Trip Down Desolation Canyon

Couldn't recommend doing this more. Life changing experience for me. Can't say enough about the guides on this trip Paco, Matt and Keltie. Absolutely amazing crew.

I'm not the social butterfly type. And I was made to feel a part of the whole thing. Hated leaving everyone we met behind. Hate to think I may have never done this, and missed out on such an awesome experience. Thank you Western River Expeditions for providing such an awesome experience.

Colorado River Rafting in Cataract Canyon

What a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I had never done anything like this and consider myself a true adventure novice. I loved the combination of relaxing and having others do so much of the work and also having to take care of myself during swimming, camping, and hiking. Our guides were so competent and so very fun. They made sure we were well taken care of, including being safe and well fed, but we also had a certain measure of independence.

Alex was a super great captain and Hyrum, Danielle, Ryan, and Dylan made us so comfortable and really made us laugh - we just fell in love with all their personalities! I went with my 5 siblings and we will always count it as a highlight in our lives!

Grand Canyon Whitewater Vacation with Incredible Guides

Our group was paired with Steve and Scott... both of whom were exceptional guides. Not only was their knowledge of rafting & camp; the canyon fantastic but they went out of their way to make sure everyone on board was having a good time.

Scott kept a watchful eye on one of the older members of our group who had mobility issues. Scott had this amazing ability to pop up the moment an extra hand was needed, but always in a way that protected the guest's pride… he was the Guardian of the incredible walking stick that we found on day one… making sure it was never left behind and available the moment we were off the boat. Scott also became a vital resource to the impromptu acapella group we formed.

Let's not forget about Steve....This is my 3rd trip down the river with Western (and my mom's 7th)... we both agree that Steve is, and will continue to grow into, an incredibly talented guide. He was so helpful & eager to accommodate any request. If a question was asked that he wasn't 100% sure of, he'd find the answer and make sure the guest got the information they were after ASAP. It was wonderful to watch Scott take him under his wing, teaching him about rapid approach techniques, "tricks of the trade" and kernels of knowledge he'd acquired over his tenure on the Colorado. Steve was a "Sponge" soaking up any insight offered by the other guides, but also suggestions made by the guests. Steve quickly became one of group. He was "in the trenches" with us during rapids and experienced similar “hardships” we did. (Ref: beetle in ear & sacrifices to the “river gods”). He was always engaging in our conversations & stories. You could tell his number one priority was keeping us safe, but he wasn't above getting mauled by a few big waves (with a huge smile on his face). Steve's passion for this "job" is contagious... his enthusiasm and excitement for the Canyon is so genuine and he truly made the overall experience one we'll never forget.

Thank you both!

Desolation Canyon, Trip of a Lifetime

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip with our 2 grandchildren!! Perfect challenge level for our 12 and 9 year olds. They loved being able to swim many times along the way all day and kayaking the rapids was a highlight for them. The guides made the trip so much fun for them and they were a great role model for the grands to see their work ethic!!

We all came away from this trip with many great memories to share with each other for the rest is our lives.

Amazing experience. Hated it to end. Made some great friends on this trip. And I'm not the social butterfly type. Everyone made me feel welcome, and part of the team. The guides should get a raise. Paco Matt and Keltie made this a great experience. Those are some hard working kids.You could give them said raise, and I'd still say it isn't enough. I can't say enough about those 3. It was hard to say goodbye to everyone.

I will always have fond memories of this trip.Thanks for the memories Western.

Best Cataract Canyon Rafting Trip

| February 13, 2019


I have done a lot of rafting trips and the guides on my trip were top notch! They were all so friendly, hardworking, and knowledgeable of the river. They made everyone feel safe, welcome, and included.

The food was impressive on the trip—we ate like kings. Not an easy feat when rafting for four days. I might have even put on a pound or two.

The trip it self is approx 2 days of motored cruising and 2 days of rapids. The rapids are big, but not terrifyinng. The guides do a great job explaining everything that is coming up, so people are prepared.

Knowledge of the landscape, history, and geology was great to learn about too.

What a great trip!

Best Middle Fork Salmon Rafting Experience

My husband and I wanted to do something special for our 40th wedding anniversary and decided to raft the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Some of our favorite guides made our trip such a memorable experience. It was also my husband's birthday, and they presented him with a homemade cookie with a candle on top. So fun! The food was delicious! Our camp was organized and well run.

I hope that we may be able to do this trip again sometime.

The sheer anticipation of this trip and build-up for 18 months may seem like a set-up to something anti-climatic; sort of 'okay' - but nothing could be further from the truth; our six days in the Grand Canyon was everything advertised and more! From the first night when monsoon season arrived in full throttle, the stars were still waiting for us between the clouds- a magnificent site. Floating along each day, Ben & Alora kept the stories coming of canyon pioneers as they set the historical stage for us...each night Joe & Skinny joined them as perfect hosts to a fab meal...you might think the canyon sells itself, which of course it does, but the food on this trip is close second!

The rapids are incredible and already well documented, but until you do it for yourself, you have no idea...A-mazing! It's obvious that Western River Expeditions has figured out how to make this experience the BEST AVAILABLE canyon run hand's down...well done WRE!

Second trip with Western, Better Than the First

| February 13, 2019


This was my second 6-7 Day Grand Canyon trip with Western River. Everything about the experience was outstanding. The reservation process was effortless. The information provided was excellent and perfectly descriptive of the overall trip. Our guides were superb. They were personable, competent, engaging and gave us a wealth of information about what we were witnessing during the trip down river. They prepared excellent meals and went so far as accommodating those that were Vegan and those that had gluten free requirements. Our days were extremely full, exciting and exhausting.

I will do this trip again.
