Trip was well planned with nothing left to chance. Our guides were skilled and very knowledgeable about both the kayak experience and general information about the river and history. The lunch was very good. Drop off and pick up was on time. Lots of fun and would recommend to a friend.

Staff and trip was amazing! All the staff was very helpful from the checking in, all the way to actually doing the kayaking on the river. They treated us like family!

For the outdoor adventurer this is a must destination event. Spend the extra for the guided tour. The views are spectacular. 10 stars if I could.

Bob picked us up, was extremely nice and professional, we got a little history of the area as they took us to pick up the kayaks, Tom was our river guide and he was organized, professional and was very cool, We kayaked approx 12 miles but with frequent breaks it was not hard, Tom took time to show us some of the most amazing terrain you could imagine, got to enjoy some hot springs and the most beautiful emerald water, this trip was all around wonderful!!! Thank you Black Canyon Kayak

Antonio made our kayak trip down the Black Canyon a memorable experience for us. He was knowledgeable, courteous, answered all of our questions and really took care of us during our journey! I would highly recommend this trip to see Black Canyon and have a chance to paddle the Colorado! Loved the hot springs hikes, saw big horn sheep up close, and had a fabulous lunch on the beach! And of course, got to experience Emerald Cave! An amazing day of adventure! Also loved the hotel pick up/drop off part of this trip and thanks to Neil for taking care of us for that part!

Robbie and Antonio, our guides, were awesome! They were patient with first-timers and engaging and knew so much about the history of the area, which made it special. The scenery was beautiful! Lunch was great, plenty of water and snacks all day, too. It was definitely a workout, but I would definitely recommend this trip - perfect getaway from the Vegas Strip.

Very enjoyable and informative... Loved the lunch! Fun seeing the various animals and natural attractions along the way like the big horn sheep, various plants, old mining places, and hot springs.

What an amazing trip. I have to apologise to the service provider...I decided tonight it is a good time to say thanks to all the Cool Destinations service providers who made our trips so much fun. I am nearly 2 years late....but I have to mention that visiting Las Vegas was not my idea of how I want to spend a family vacation....shows and 'the strip'....but I will never think of Las Vegas as those things again. We met the most amazing people on a hike, kayaking and driving buggies in the desert....the kayaking was fantastic...the Hoover dam wall amazing - from where we started, and the water the clearest of all. The little detours op canyons to waterfalls and hot pools and into caves made is so much more of a really amazing experience. We had our meal of fruit on a little 'beach' next to the water of this great river...we even swam for a bit, and I must say the only negative part of this trip was that it had to actually end! It was awesome. If you like water , do this trip, there is nothing hard or even remotely dangerous about the trip - just a lot of fun and 'little moments' we thoroughly enjoyed it! and will definitely recommend i to anybody who wants to experience the real Las Vegas'!
