Had an absolute incredible time with incredibly talented boatmen. The Granduer of seeing the Grand Canyon from the river that helped to craft it is just awesome! I took my family with me and we enjoyed all the sights and hikes as well as the fine shore cusine served Dailey.

I have rafted the Grand Canyon twice now. One 7 day trip and one 8 day trip. I recommend the 7 day trip. The shorter 3 day trips require an arduous hike into or out of the canyon. The 8 day gets very slow at the end. The 6 and 7 day fly you out on a helicopter to the... More

My 4th 8 day trip with ARR! I took my 27 year old daughter and a friend this time. 8 solid days of action and adventure. Caves, waterfalls, amazing blue rivers to float in and the food was beyond amazing each and every day! Our group leader David was assisted by Chris, Roger and Matt. The raft skills of David... More

The River is awesome, the Canyon is fantastic, the history is unbelievable, and the boatmen (and women) really know the Canyon and the River. What a great trip, fun, educational, and the meals are 5 star. This is the trip of a lifetime! If you NEVER go anywhere else, GO ON A TRIP WITH ARR.

Well planned, as safe as Arizona desert and fast water can be, a fun river adventure. Good people, food and shared excitement. Start with a small plane to Bar 10 Ranch for a wonderful day of horseback riding, hot showers, dutch oven dinner, cowboy entertainment and dark sky night sleeping in a covered wagon with the Milky Way bright and...

We went in early June 2016, and we loved it. The rapids were exciting but not frightening, the water was of course cold :) and the hikes were beautiful. We are so happy we took this trip. Our guides, Joe, Tyler, Zach, and Johnny, are top notch pros, and they made the trip fun, delicious, and enjoyable every step of... More

Best trip I have ever been on. The view from the bottom of the Grand Canyon were beautiful. The guides were very informative and very friendly. Loved camping outside on the beach. Food was fantastic. I would do it again. Thanks Arizona River Runners for a trip of a life time. Hope to come back again for a longer trip

Just came back from my 3rd trip down the amazing Grand Canyon. All with Arizona River Runners. Words can not describe the magnificance of floating down the Colorado river. 187 miles of spectacular views and thrilling rapids. This should be on every outdoor lovers list to do. Arizona River Runners are a first class operation.
