We went in September. Sleeping on cots under the stars with perfect temps and no bugs was awesome. Food was great, guides were great, scenery and short hikes were perfect. In addition to the knowledge from the guide, I was fortunate to have a couple near me that were geologists to answer questions as well. I had an Apple Watch and iPhone for pics and was able to keep them charged on airplane mode the whole time with two juice packs. The transportation from Las Vegas hotel to Lee’s Ferry to speed boat at the end to small bus for rough roads to large fancy bus back to Las Vegas was well coordinated. Nice complimentary duffel bag and hot/cold mug. First class operation.

bucket list trip and it lived up to every expectation. how great it was to be able to see such a prehistoric and beautiful setting with so little remnants of human kind having been there. the views and the location lived up to everything it was supposed to, but I have to credit this company for making it very special. Our guides for this trip (Kyle and Tabitha) were incredibly knowledgeable of the geography, the environment, the importance of keeping the land pristine, but they had personalities that related to all of us. Oh, and did I mention they were fabulous story tellers as well. Just amazing that you can still find people with such a passion. We loved the entire trip.

Loved this trip SO much. Have never experienced the Grand Canyon in such vivid color. Our guide, Den, and swamper, Mark, were absolutely brilliant. Best river cooks ever. These guys made the trip so comfortable. I would recommend this trip to everyone. Just remember that it is an expedition rather than a vacation. The weather and the river rule. Thank you Grand Canyon Expedition Company for introducing me to thrilling way to travel. Do NOT wait, go as soon as possible.

This is my third trip down the Colorado River with Grand Canyon Expeditions. I went twice as a kid and brought my children this time, and it was just as adventurous and magical 30 years later!

This trip had been on my bucket list for years, and with the cancelling of overseas travel, I decided it was now or never. I am so glad it was "now". This is an experience of a lifetime. I learned so much, met some wonderful new friends, worked hard, and ate some amazing meals. The staff of Zach, Faith, and Brendyce were the absolute best!! I've never seen 3 people work so hard to make this a great experience for us, and yet seem to have so much fun! Thank you!

This is our 3rd trip with the same company. Each time it has exceeded our expectations this last trip by far the best...totally recommend!

We had a most amazing trip! Everything was extremely well organized and the team leaders (Zach, Hannah, Faith, Tony and Eddie) are friendly, hard-working, knowledgeable and committed to making every trip special for their guests. We were in great hands with a team that knew the canyon well and provided our group with hikes and experiences that matched our capabilities. We are already talking about when we can go back with some other friends/family. Without a doubt, we will use Grand Canyon Expeditions again (and, hopefully, meet up with some of our new guide-friends again)!!

14 Day Dory (summer 2020) - look no further for the PERFECT river expedition. This was my 2nd trip with GCEX (8 Day Motor - summer 2019). Both trips have an exclusive niche & are over the top worth doing. From ease of booking to navigating safely through legendary rapids to cooking steaks to tending the groover (sanitary toilet), GCEX does it all with professionalism, skill, humor, competence, expertise, intelligence, humility and class. Find the money & book a trip; it’s worth every penny & much more. I only wish GCEX ran the country, not just the river. Best company, best people, ever.

Did the 14 day Dory Trip, and it was phenomenal! Loved the wild rides through the rapids, but loved the hikes, the geology, anthropology, botany and boating history just as much or more. The guides were totally competent on the water, but all were amazing teachers and storytellers too, each with their own unique perspective.

An out-of-this-world adventure. In eight memorable days, you will cover approximately 277 river miles, negotiating nearly 200 exciting white water rapids in safety and first-class comfort.


14 & 16 Day Dory River Trip

We also offer a rowing trip for those who want a longer, more in-depth and up-close experience. Since most people raft the Grand Canyon only once, it makes sense to have time to drift, to wander, and to ponder.
