Once in a Lifetime Trip

What an experience!!! Fantastic scenery. Amazing guides and chefs... Evan, Lat, Newty and Steven.

We loved the whole thing, camping under the stars, riding the rapids.

The only downside was a large group on our trip that weren't happy with one of the natural wonders of the world so decided to add to it with Pop music whilst in camp!!!! Not good and should not have been allowed.

This is the best vacation I have had in the past 10 years. I would recommend this rafting trip to anyone.

We had a 75 year old on our trip and I think he had as much fun as I did. I would recommend this trip to all ages.

This has been a bucket list trip for 35 years....and it totally met and exceeded all my expectations!

From all the pre trip information and ease of reservations clear thru to Bar 10 Ranch experience, Western River Expeditions gave attention to each detail.

The first fire line to load the rafts and our orientation on the river by our guide leader, Ronnie, set the stage for what we could expect. There were two rafts on our trip with four of the best river guides that Western must have---Veronica (Ronnie as we knew her and the trip leader) and Jeff Haymond, R D Tucker (the second raft driver), and Scott Place. Gear provided by WRE included tents, if you wanted one, cots (that at times tried your patience in setting up), chairs, sleeping bags, a sheet, and the waterproof gear and day bags. The meals were delicious and pretty gourmet for a 7 day rafting trip.....sample dishes included: pancakes, French toast, eggs in various ways, Rainbow trout, Pasta dish with sauce, fajitas, cornbread baked in Dutch ovens, fresh roasted veggies such as asparagus and Brussel sprouts, steak, burgers, Dutch oven baked cakes-chocolate and yellow, and wonderful lunches as well. I was totally impressed that there was ice cream on the 5th day for my birthday!

The guides shared lots of information, facts, and stories about the Grand Canyon and each stop or hike we did. They were kind, funny, compassionate, knowledgeable, and experts in all they did. The short hikes were all enjoyable--too many to discuss each one--up canyons, to waterfalls, and warm waters! The guides were there to provide encouragement, help, and praise if you were able to overcome a fear(edges) or experienced difficulty in any way. When Scott played his guitar and sang songs he had composed about the "ditch"/Grand Canyon, it was very emotional and even brought tears to some eyes.

The rapids ranged from small and fun to the large ones such as Hermit, Granite, Crystal, Horn, and Upset to the mighty Lava. There was a rapid for each and everyone's desire and riders had a choice of where to sit on the raft to experience it at the level desired. The helicopter ride out was fun and the flights both to and from the river sure gave a different perspective as well as made the distance seem shorter. At times the Canyon winds do make the flights a bit bouncy.

This was truly a dream trip that far exceeded my high expectations.....

My husband, Kurt, and I thoroughly enjoyed the rafting trip. Our guide, Jeff Call, was knowledgeable about the river and his partner was great as well.

We enjoyed the whitewater rapids on the first day as well as the hike to the Anasazi granary and the spring and fall equinox the Indians had painted. Our steaks were cooked to perfection that night and the chocolate cake was a special treat.

The next day after camping at Ten Cent, we hit more rapids but they were not as thrilling as the first day. The price for the 2 day "Express" trip is pretty steep but you get what you pay for.

I would recommend Western River to friends who wish to experience this kind of adventure. Thank You!

My son and I thought the trip was terrific. The guides were exceptionally skilled and friendly, the scenery was unbelievable, the food was terrific and the accommodations were delightful. Here are a few suggestions to consider for future trips:

(1) The final evening of the trip featured songs and some poetry presented by the guides. They asked if any of the guests had contributions. It might have been helpful to give the guests advance notice, so that those who might be inclined had some time to prepare.

(2) The final evening also involved having each of the guests wear their bedsheets. I don't think this was so successful.

(3) On the first day, we arrived at camp around 2:30 and spent the rest of the day and night there. In retrospect, it might have been better to spend more time on the river or on a hike. The camp (not the first choice camp) was a bit hot and buggy.

When I boarded the airplane to head out for my trek thru the lower Grand Canyon, I wasn't sure what to expect from the trip. What I found was a well planned adventure that got me back to into the natural world that we often give up in today's working world.

Seeing the stars in a ink dark sky, viewing the rocky historical record of the canyon, and sporting thru the spray of rapids that you can imagine that were roaring cataracts in 1910. I learned that even though it is camping at its grandest it appeals to the child in all of us. Thanks!

In the past few years, I have been blessed to do some extensive traveling. I've been to London, Paris, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Costa Rica. I've seen some amazing sights, but this trip was the most amazing and most memorable trip, I have ever taken!

The scenery is magnificent! From the different rock formations, to the flowing waters, to the cactus that seem to grow anywhere they please, to the star filled night skies...this was definitely a "get-a-way" vacation!

The crew (Evan, Stephan, Lat and Newty), that took our group down river, were the best! Completely organized, professional, knowledgeable, friendly and a great team within themselves! They kept us informed of everything that was taking place, what to expect and what was expected of us! They entertained us and even gave us a pretty thorough history lesson about the first explorations of the Grand Canyon! Very impressive!

And...sorry guys, I have to say it....the food! The food was awesome!! Not your typical camping cuisine! I think I actually gained a couple of pounds! It was delicious!

Thank you for an amazing trip! I will be back!!

Everything was great. The pickup at the hotel in Las Vegas with a lite breakfast and transport to airport no issues. The flight to Bar 10 Ranch was an experience. A little scary but just because it was a small plane I guess. The helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon was great. The scenery is majestic. Just amazing. The guides, Steven and Evan on my boat were totally cool and Newty and Lat on the other boat cool as well. All the meals were delicious. They guides really did a bang up job.

I'm thinking you guys have this nailed down to a "T". Wonderful experience. Highly recommended.
