Our June 2015 trip was fantastic, exceeded expectations. Our guides Trevin, Johnny, Irv and Dave all were highly competent boatmen, cooks, tour guides and just good folks that made the trip fun for all. Our entire group enjoyed the journey, made memorable by the great rapids, canyon views, side hikes, cliff jump, night sky as well as the new friends made along the way. I would love to do this trip again some day and I highly recommend GCE to anyone looking for a great trip.

I had a fantastic time indeed, and my needs as a diabetic and a vegan were met very well. What a gorgeous and luxurious trip! I've never gone on a trip before where everything was taken care of for me. Absolutely wonderful.
And I'd always thought I'd prefer to participate in paddling on a 15-day trip, but discovered how nice it was to motor through the flat sections. I was also surprised to learn that I thought 8 days was just the right amount of time, and I did not feel a need to be there twice as long.

This was the trip of a lifetime. Beav, Kyle, Mike and Jacob were first rate guides and did everything to make this a memorable experience.

We plan to return in the future.

Thanks for everything

Our tour leader was Glade and his crew, Tony and Sean. They are absolutely topnotch and helped to make this a once in a lifetime experience. I understand that our boatman, Bachco (sp) was a last minute stand-in. It is obvious he was very well qualified and knew every ripple of the river. That is important! But we were mesmerized by his interest, knowledge and enthusiasm for sharing the history of the native peoples and geology of the Canyon. Good job everyone.

Trip exceeded my expectations. 28 wonderful, fellow passengers, including Sue, an exceptional Geologist and two great raft crews who met our every need. Will certainly recommend GCEC to those with similar interests. THANKS!

I didn't know what to expect on my trip with Grand Canyon Expeditions, but I must say the experience exceeded any thing I could have dreamed of. Our guides were incredible!! Donna, Bob and Art were fantastic guides and shared the wealth of their knowledge of the Canyon with us so completely. I can't say enough about the generous, delicious meals and snacks that we're provided for us. I haven't eaten that well in a long, long time. The ice for evening tails was unexpected but awesome! Our group if 28 were a delight to travel 8 days with on the river. We were so fortunate to have had such a happy and cohesive group. They are missed but we are staying in touch via email.
Thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime. I will never forget it and will encourage others to experience it if they choose. I can highly recommend a Grand Canyon Expedtions to my family and friends. Thank you so much!!

WOW!!! I have been wanting to do this trip for five years. All I can say is if you are thinking about doing this trip--don't wait. GCEX is a great company to do it with. The scenery, food, and staff were all top notch. Staff -- Art, Bob, and Donna worked very hard making sure we had a memorable trip. Their knowledge of the canyon was excellent. The side canyon hikes were great. The rapids were excillerating and refreshing.

Thank you GCEX

We have just returned from an 8 day motorized raft trip of the Grand Canyon with 13 family members. My husband and I have traveled around the world extensively and have to say that this was one of the best trips ever! Grand Canyon Expeditions is extremely well organized with every aspect of the trip. Their packing list is bang on and the hotel in Vegas is an added bonus. As we fell into the rhythm of the river, Glade and Ben, our boatmen with the capable help of Tony and Julie, always had a story to tell or a new wonder to show us. Glade, you are the man! No one else makes Dutch Oven Chocolate Iced Cookies like you!! Meals were delicious and the scenery was breathtaking, even in the rain. The crew worked tirelessly to show us the Canyon they love so well. I want to thank everyone at GCEX for making this a vacation we will all remember! Wish we were back on the river, waking up to Glade's morning call of "Hot coffee - YEE HAW!!"
PS - the jet boat trip for the last 30 miles was greatly appreciated as the temp was over 100 and we had left the beauty of the Canyon behind.

This was my third trip rafting the Colorado River. I have always had good guides but this trip we had exceptional guides. Bobby, Cash, Greg and Tom were so much fun, great storytellers, knowledgeable about the canyon and the geology and very good cooks. This trip leaves you with a lifetime of smiles looking back at the week on a mighty river.

My wife and I just did the June 4-11 trip with Art & Bob & Donna. What a wonderful experience. This had been on my bucket list since the early 80's when I did a lot of rafting. But this is so much more than just rafting. The scenery is never ending. The guides are so knowledgeable about the canyon. Waking up to the sun showing of the upper canyon walls is spectacular. The hikes we went on were absolutely great. This is a MUST DO for anyone that visits the national parks. And Grand Canyon Expeditions is a world class outfit.
