My 9 year old daughter and I took this fantastic trip with GCEX in 1979. The guides are the gold standard in the Canyon*** Each hour brought breathtaking vistas and whitewater thrills. We read John Wesley Powell's book before the trip so were primed for adventure. All the equipment is first class, the meals scrumptious, and it remains one of the BEST trips of my life. Thank you for vivid memories! I recommend GCEX to friends/family planning a Canyon water trip. So happy for your success!!

Not only was it a fun, physical, and educational trip, the meals were fresh and delicious and I can not say enough about Capains Ann Marie and Ben, as well as their swampers Shawn and Julie, who made this journey a pleasure. We are already discussing our next trip thru the canyon with your company

I will HIGHLY recommend this company to family and friends looking for the experience of a lifetime. The scenery was breath-taking, guides amazing and the friendships I made will last forever. I went with a group of four (my 73 old father, and our two neighbors), but left the adventure with a WHOLE group of NEW friends and family. Loved our guides! Irv, Adam, Kyle and Ben made the whole experience that much more exciting. They made the event memorable with their expertise, education and infectious love of the river. Thank you for providing such a moving experience. BUCKET LIST ITEM - CHECK!!

Den & Roger were amazing! Truly a trip of a lifetime. The boats were a blast. Hikes were breathtaking. And the food was great. Wished the bus would've taken us back to the start so we could've done it all over again. Thanks for everything.

I was privileged 46 years ago to take a river trip with my father. We hiked down the Kaibab trail and met two motor rafts at Phantom Ranch. Our trip leader was Ron Smith. The next week was an amazing adventure through the mid , and lower canyon. My faded memories include thrilling rapid rides through Crystal, and Lava Falls, Camping on pristine sandy beaches, and the cowboy camaraderie of the evening campfires. So when my brother invited me to come along this year I jumped at the chance. The trip is still one of the most amazing experiences we mere humans can have. to be able to travel along geological time ,and witness nature closely is more than inspiring. The care ,and comfort that GCEX provides along the way is exemplary to the ideals that were shown to me that first trip. Respect what surrounds you. Revel in it's energy, and practice the lessons that you learn along the way.

Rafting 280 miles down the Colorado River, camping under the stars, exploring beautiful side canyons, eating delicious meals prepared by the crew - these are just a few of the reasons this experience is so special. Irv and Chuck were knowledgeable and made great decisions about what we saw each day, where we camped, and were the ultimate professionals. Ultimately what we keep mentioning when people ask about our trip was the special group of people with whom we traveled. From several countries and states, we learned about each other, laughed often, and shared a week that we will never forget.

A Life Changing Experience!! Our 8-day journey was filled with a variety of one-of-a-kind adventures, including hiking to ancient native cliff granaries, excursions to waterfalls (free personal showers), visiting unique geological formations and mineral pools, ponds and small rivers where we could enjoy water sport activities. From the first morning announcement -- "Coffee's Ready!" to the hour we all turned in at night, our Grand Canyon experience was filled with entertaining and educational activities. Our Professional River Guides and their First Mates presented us with a most enjoyable time, including highlights of the history of the Grand Canyon's formation and modern discovery by nineteenth and early twentieth century adventurers. Of course, there are some river life details that you must experience yourselves…. Our group was fun and friendly, and many new acquaintances have become good friends as a result of our mutual experiences. Did I mention the rapids were awesome?? When can we come back for an encore?
