If you already have a car, this is the perfect one-day Grand canyon white water rafting tour. Drive yourself from Flagstaff or Las vegas to Peach Springs, Arizona, home to the Hualapai Indians at the gateway to the Grand canyon. Here, you will check in and transfer by van to the Colorado River for your 5.5-hour white water rafting adventure.

    Caution!! Take waiver seriously. While everything went okay on our individual boat, and sights were phenomenal, another boat in our group flipped in the rapids, tossing all occupants and resulting in 2 serious head injuries and life flight. could have been avoided! No helmets are given out, NO instructions as to what to do if you go in. THE MOTOR FAILED on first boat that flipped and another boat the motor simply FELL OFF into rapids. We had to wait for a new motor to be put on our boat before we departed! No radios to communicate between boats. Ripped dry bags for your belongings. Horrible organization of bus rides to and from boats resulting in hour long waits back to your car. A lot of confusion. It was breathtaking, but go in knowing the risks you take. SAFETY was not a priority.

    I booked this trip for my husband’s 30th birthday! It’s was so much better than we imagined! Tips: you will get wet and be in those wet clothes the whole time (but you also dry quickly)! Bring your camera with extra memory! They provide water the entire day and provide lunch! Wear sunscreen and a protective hat, you are in the sun most of the day! Shorty was our guide and he was amazing! Bring cash to tip your guide!

    This was a trip of a lifetime with my family. It was more than I expected: cliff diving, rock repelling, etc, etc. Joseph our trip leader was the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was so responsive to our needs and always answered our questions no matter how silly. We loved the whole experience and the helicopter ride was a 1st and only wished that it was longer.

    Beautiful scenery , well organized raft trip. Only drag was not oared raft so they motor through the rapids. Safer while taking away some excitement compared to other raft trips. Great for novices

    Was a fabulous experience , staff and guides great. A fantastic lunch on the shore and a excellent hike to a water fall. I highly recommend this to everyone.
