Guides were absolutely professional and awesome and fun all at the same time. Food was great: shrimp cocktails, steak, fresh baked muffins, eggs cooked to order, cheesecake. Couldn't be better. Camping out under the stars was such a great experience. We are experienced travelers and used to some rough conditions and I would say this is a great experience for anyone at any level. Don't be intimidated at all....it was a really fun 4 days rafting in the Grand Canyon. The ranch experience was just as much fun. Staff went out of their way to make sure everyone could participate in the activities.
