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.

A month ago I was on a "trip of a lifetime" with my best friend, two wonderful boat captains (Greg and Bob), two amazing swampers and 26 strangers that would quickly become my friends. The beauty of the Canyon was what brought me there, but the experience is what guarantees that I will return again. Grand Canyon Expeditions Co. is top-notch and I would encourage anyone to take this journey with them. The rapids, the rafting, the hikes, the stories, the knowledge of our captains and the pure joy of being in areas that few people see should be experienced by everyone. And . . . did I say that the food was amazing! Plus, I have never seen so many stars. I can't begin to explain how awesome this trip ("journey") was. All I can say it "book it now". You will not be disappointed. Many thanks to the folks at GCEX for making this trip one to remember. From the registration, orientation, rafting and return, you made it spectacular! I'll see you again soon.

Wow. I cant believe the 8 day trip went by so fast! The crew, Glade, Ben, Julie and Tony, were beyond belief. The effort they put in and the knowledge they poured into us was phenomenal. Every meal was perfectly prepared and they will answer any question you throw at them. Even from the very start of trip planning, it was all so well organized and thought out! There were literally zero hitches. GCEX went above and beyond to make sure all events go smoothly and that you are always informed! Their packing list was spot on and i would definitely suggest bringing a cotton sheet, pillow, wet wipes, backpack and some sort of bandanna or scarf to cover your neck. All of the side trip hikes were perfectly picked by our guides and they planned every day so that we could experience as many of them as possible without the interruption of other groups. It takes a lot of pre-planning and was greatly appreciated! Also, do not be too afraid of the rain, if it happens. It will make for great cascading waterfalls around every bend! A good rain suit is highly recommended as well. You will not regret this trip! Book it with Grand Canyon Expeditions and their experience and expertise will not let you down!!

My 19 year old son and I loved our 8 day motorized trip. Our guides Ani and Glade, and their assistants Renee and Dennis, were fantastic. They took such good care of us, doing everything necessary to keep us safe and comfortable. The trip provided an opportunity for me to spend an incredible week with my son. Spending that week on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon looking at the beautiful scenery, sleeping under the stars, with no phones, no internet, was wonderful. I felt a sense of peace on the trip that I cannot really describe. Thank you for providing a fantastic experience!

Everything was professional, reassuring, controlled and only 3x I had my eyes closed! Superb boat guides ,incredible food, and such fun!
Waking up under they sky with the sun on the Canyon was surreal and we keep saying that is is the best holiday we have ever had !!! Thank you so so muchxxx
