Hands down the most awesome trip we have ever experienced. Our Guides and Swampers- Adam, Jim, Shelly O and Tom- were amazing. The rapids, the hikes, the food - all beyond our expectations.

I lived in Phoenix in the late 80s and had the chance to visit the Grand Canyon several times - we even hiked to the bottom and back in one day one time (not recommended!). From that time, I added a river trip through the Canyon to my bucket list of things to do. After many years (and two children), we finally got around to the process. Our friends Ken and Suzanne from Atlanta had recently completed a trip with you and they were effusive in their praise of the professional job and well-organized trip that they had with GCEX. So, we didn't even "shop" around to other outfitters - we knew that GCEX was for us. We originally tried to get an entire boat but ended up with five of us. The process of scheduling the trip went well. The arrangements in Las Vegas both prior to and after the trip were great - nice to be in a hotel not on the Strip but close enough if one wants to check that out. The trip itself - we can say enough about it. It exceeded all my expectations. Everything was handled so professionally by our guides. The food was great - camping was a lot of fun and of course the rafting was exciting and beautiful with all of the grandeur of the Grand Canyon. All five of us have said we would like to do the trip again because we know there is so much more to experience and it would be fun knowing what we know now. Our thanks to everyone at GCEX and especially our guides Den and Roger and our "swampers" Brianne and Patti. They worked so hard to provide us with this great experience!

The entire trip was very well organized. The guides were very knowledgeable. Lots of points of interest were brought to our attention. There was plenty of good food especially the evening meals. I will recommend this trip to my friends.

I completed my trip in June of 2018. What a spectacular experience. From the very beginning the planning and organization was excellent. The Grand Canyon Expedition boatmen and swampers, Roger, Den, Bree, and Patty were wonderful. They were not only supremely confident in their day-to-day operations, but are genuine and caring people whose wonderful attitude set the tone for the entire trip. Each day when you wake up from a canopy of stars you can expect a wonderful breakfast and a day on the river filled with spectacular rapids and breathtaking scenery. At the end of the day there is yet another gourmet meal and great comradeship with your fellow passengers. In all, the Grand Canyon Expedition experience exceeded all expectations and, when your journey is complete, you will be left with wonderful memories of spectacular scenery and great people.

I loved everything about this trip. The scenery was surreal, the rapids a blast, the freedom of being outdoors for 8 whole days, the absolutely delicious meals, the hikes up side canyons and tributaries, the knowledge, humour and passion of the crew, sleeping under the stars, the camaraderie of the group, ... The experience of Grand Canyon Expeditions is evident in the way everything works like clockwork, everything managed so well, yet still every day is an open slate with its own schedule.

Just finished our trip June 16, 2018 This was a trip of a lifetime although there were other passengers with us on their fourth trip. GCEX is an exceptional company leaving no stone unturned. They cover every possible detail. Our crew Ann Marie ( leader ) boatman Adam, swampers Shaun and Lori were beyond words exceptional. No harder workers you will find. Even though we have hiked the canyon and Havasupai twice you see and experience so much more rafting it. All of our fellow travelers were great fun and become family sharing a great trip. The food was great the first day and got better on each day after. The rapids, hikes, and education on the canyon by the crew was beyond great. Can’t say enough good things about this company, if your deciding on this trip don’t hesitate.

My rafting trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon with Grand Canyon Expeditions was one of the best vacations I have ever had. It was an amazing experience. The service provided by the guides and swampers was incredible. They were all very hard workers, from preparing meals, providing stories and history of the Grand Canyon to making sure our personal needs were meet; they did it all! The dinners were delicious, and I couldn't believe all the meals we ate while camping. This was in addition to the gourmet breakfast and lunch served daily, along with horderves served before our dinner meal. Ice for evening cocktails was a plus. I can't say enough about how good the food was, it makes me want to go out and buy a Dutch oven! The rafting was excellent, with a great variety of rapids, some challenging and incredibly exciting, and others more calm. Every hike had something new and adventurous waiting for us to experience. It was the perfect mix of rafting and hiking. All the while the scenery around every bend in the river was like something off of a postcard.

My trip was absolutely incredible. I was told to expect the "trip of a lifetime" and that is exactly correct. The weather was ideal, the water was clear for the entire route and the canyon geology was stunning. Add in the total professionalism of our boatmen Zach and Bacco and their swampers, Mark and Matt, and the recipe for perfection was complete. The wonderful camaraderie of my fellow travelers was the icing on the cake. My memories are forever.

The rafting trip is a great way to experience the incredible beauty of the Grand Canyon. Now that I’m back home and have had time to reflect on the trip, I'm almost overwhelmed by all of the wonderful memories.
