Acrescente uma emocionante aventura ao ar livre a qualquer viagem em Las Vegas com esta viagem guiada de rafting pelo Rio Colorado. Desfrute de uma viagem de 2,5 horas pelo sul até Peach Springs, Arizona, lar dos índios Hualapai na entrada do Grand Canyon. Em seguida, desafie as variadas corredeiras do rio Colorado em uma viagem de 60 milhas pelo cânion, fazendo uma trilha para uma cachoeira de travertino ao longo do caminho. Um almoço embalado e um embarque e desembarque no hotel estão incluídos.
Foi, de longe, nossa melhor experiência em Las Vegas e olha que já estamos perto dos 60!! . O passeio deve ser feito no verão porque a agua do rio é bem fria. As corredeiras são o máximo!! Passeio muito bem organizado, com guia nativo simpático e prestativo. Imperdível visitar a cachoeira que tem agua mais quente que a do rio, embora o caminho ate ela seja difícil para os que tenham dificuldade de locomoção ou não tenham espirito esportivo. O lanche servido embalado é farto e suficiente e bebidas a vontade. Antes do final do passeio é também servido snaks, amendoins, etc. e mais bebida para quem quiser. O ponto negativo foi o uso do banheiro químico antes do inicio do passeio durante o passeio não tem banheiro pois estava impraticável e o uso de ônibus para descer o canyon. Se não quiser ter a cabeça arrancada pelos solavancos, corra e se sente num dos bancos da frente do ônibus. Na volta, subimos o canyon de helicóptero e pegamos a van ate o hotel. No caminho de volta, nosso guia Sr. Ron parou na Hoover Dan para uma visita breve. E muito bonito mas tem que subir escadaria de - 70 degraus. Valeu a pena. Foi inesquecível!!
Absolutely Brilliant and a great experience. Full day tour with a good lunch. Plenty of rock formations to see and the white water part was great Note -the water was very cold and you get wet everywhere, there is no point in wearing any waterproofs as the water falls on top of you - but thats what you are there for!. Went down into the canyon in an old School bus to the rafts, visited a waterfall no designated path, you climbed rocks and we meandered down the canyon we didn't do the helicopter after the white waters - very quiet and peaceful.
This was probably the best tour I have ever taken and we were extremely satisfied. Everyone involved was great and made the trip enjoyable. The guides were very knowledgeable and you could tell they really liked their job. Michael who drove us out to the river had a ton of knowledge to give us and made sure to point out as much as he could going down. Our guide on the boat, Andrew, was great as well and I'd ask for him when we come back for this again. He was super nice, knowledgeable, and overall made sure we had a great time. I was pretty impressed by the training they have to go through for certification and was impressed overall by the way he took us down the river. Ron who drove us out was super nice as well and made sure we were prepped. That said about the staff, the actual trip was amazing and a highly reccomend it to anyone who wants to see the GC from the river. I was hesitant to book this trip at first thinking we might not see a lot or the rapids might be small due to it being a one day trip or more towards the end of the usual longer trips but I was 100 wrong - you go through a decent amount of larger rapids and you see a lot of great stuff. Highly recommend climbing to the waterfall too. We had a great time the entire trip and I want to come back ASAP. One last thing - we wore thick plastic suits and still were drenched but they were still worth wearing because they acted as a shield from the water so I would recommend wearing one on the trip just for that reason.
What a fantastic experience, we had an amazing guy on our raft who knew the canyon like the back of his hand. yes you have to set off early but it is well worth it. They have a dry bag on the boat to place all your belongings in. You dont need to take any waterproofs as they wont really help, and its all part of the fun getting wet. Make sure you have a waterproof camera to get some great snaps.
The helicopter ride out of the canyon was great fun also, but you do have a bit of a trek up the canyon to catch it.
This was a fantastic trip and what a way to see the Grand Canyon whilst at the same time, having the adrenaline rush of white water rafting. Don't be put off by the price....whilst at face value, it's not cheap, it's definitely worthwhile for what is probably a once in a lifetime experience.
I have waited years to do this excursion and I was not disappointed. A truly exhilarating experience and one not to be missed. Everyone involved was helpful and friendly from Kathy in the office to Ron the driver who made the long drive entertaining and informative. At the site JB the bus driver helpful and entertaining. On the water our boat driver Tyson was extremely competent and friendly and went out of his way to make sure everyone had a good experience. Will definitely do this trip again next time I'm in Vegas.
