Great Day Of Kayaking!

EJ was a great tour guide—knowledgeable about the area it’s history & animals. The place was good for our group agreed 12-55. Scenery was absolutely stunning. Would recommend this to anyone who would like a break from the hustle and bustle of Vegas to appreciate the natural wonders of the area. Fits perfectly with a stop by hover dam.

Brett was amazing. We had a group of 7 including the tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and patient. We had a wonderful time! Definitely recommend. Our youngest is 12 yo and he did not have a problem keeping up. So do not be scared of taking your kids.

Thanks for the nice review Chris. For anyone reading the review our tour is 4 hours compared to other tour operators 3. This makes it a more relaxed pace and allows for more junior and senior people to enjoy the river. Brett @ Veteran Kayaks.

I am very happy that I found this small group tour. The owner/operator is very nice, approachable and the utmost professional. Edgar our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some tips for the rest of our trip that worked out great! He also took time getting good group photos for our family. I can't say enough about the staff/owner. The trip itself was magic! I'd highly recommend. We kayak regularly and were excited to kayak in a new environment and this small group setting was perfect for us. The scenery is breathtaking and I'd say on a calm day, most people can do this trip. It's a must do if you are in the area and want a bit of adventure!

This was a really nice kayaking trip. There were a couple of rest stops and EJ provided good snacks and ice cold water for refreshment. Even though the water was really cold, it cooled me off with a short swim. Highly recommended.
