Fun in the Sun
Oct 2021
I enjoyed the trip I went on a few years ago, so came back and brought new friends. Second time was just as awesome as the first. Hats off to our guide this time around, Mike. He did a fabulous job getting us up and back, and pointed out all the history of the river. A grand time was had by all!

This company is very professional and the prices are good. I highly recommend Mike as your tour guide. I felt safer when I found out he is a first responder. He is patient and knowledgeable about the area, he loves his job and he likes to make sure people are safe.

This was the highlight of our Vegas trip. I would highly recommend Blazing Paddles. Mike, our guide was funny, and very knowledgeable. He made our trip more than just a kayak trip, he made it fun and a memory I’ll cherish. Thanks Mike and Blazing Paddles. I’ll definitely come back.

Fantastic Experience
Oct 2021 • Friends
The Kayak tour was incredible! Our guide, Greg, was phenomenal! I'd never kayaked before, but Greg made sure I felt safe and helped get me prepared for the day. He was very informative and taught us so much about the canyon and kayaking. He really made the tour fun! The sights were amazing!

Disappointing
Sep 2021
The canyon was beautiful & the kayaking was just fine. What wasn't is how the trip was handled. We signed up for the self drive and arrived about 20-25 minutes early as instructed and were checked in by Andrew. He was the assistant & did a great job. The majority of the people who took the trip were picked up by the company van with the lead guide so they did not drive themselves. The lead guide gave a short intro & announced that they were 27 minutes late. Thus we got a very short intro on kayaking - only covered about 2 quick points. This did not compare to the detailed instructions that guides of other groups gave. Then he directed us to start the kayaking & that we basically needed to make up time. (BTW - we drove from Las Vegas too - same as the group that was picked up.) It would have been nice to get an apology since we waited an hour.

My husband & I did not find it relaxing on the way up the river. It seemed we were on a mission making up time. When I finally took the time to look around, I found that the canyon, river & area was beautiful. The stop in the Emerald Cave was okay, not great. It probably didn't help that our whole group of over 20 people was instructed to crowd into the cave altogether. It wasn't as you see ( being roomy) in the photos. One last item, signing up online for the trip was very easy & we received a quick response.

It was absolutely beautiful! Our Guide Mike answered all our questions. Interacted with everyone in the group so no one was left out. Snacks and cold water provided! We loved it, would like to do the twilight tour next time.
Also want to add that I had questions prior to our tour date and they were answered so quickly! Thanks.
