Honestly it was so much fun, Brianna our tour guide was so amazing. She was soo knowledgeable about all the history and plants. We had a great time. Our favorite part was our fun banter back and forth. We splashed each other, had races, and even joked about tipping one another (don’t worry it was all joking). She made the tour so fun! You don’t need to be a huge muscle man do do it, it is an easy river to paddle. Bring sun screen and a ziploc bag for your phone. A small pack pack will fit in the kayak too. Book it! We did and loved it.

Myself and four of my friends did this excursion and this was truly the highlight of our trip! Our Tour Guide AJ was AMAZING from pick up to Drop off! This is a MUST DO excursion, the views were breathtaking and so surreal. The tour even included a mini hike to even more breathtaking views! AJ was very informative during the tour, giving us information about the area as well as answering any questions we may have to the best of his abilities. The group size was perfect! This is also beginner friendly, AJ was able to assist and be patient with some who may not have been the best at kayaking while still engaging with the rest of us. We truly had an amazing kayaking trip with an AMAZING tour guide AJ!!

Everything from the beginning to the end! The instructor Jacob was awesome and very helpful giving us information about our surroundings, do's and don'ts, and he let us kayak freely instead of keeping us all in the groups experience kayakers! He is very professional at what he does never leaves anybody behind! I will suggest this to whoever visits Las Vegas!

We have been to Vegas every year and this year we decided to try kayaking. It was such a blast, we went as a party of 6 and had so much fun. Dave was our guide and he was such a blast. Not only did he make it a blast he made it feel like we weren't even on a tour. We would definitely recommend it! You have to experience it!!

We really enjoyed the trip. AJ was a great guide. We loved being on the Colorado River. The cave seems a little over rated but the river is beautiful. A great kayak experience.
