The guides were great. Out jeep driver never did give us his name, he was very knowledgeable and the scenery was fantastic. Highly recommend this type of tour to see the back country up close without having to drive your own jeep over rocks. The rafting tour was fun and our guide Hunter was a hoot. Such a polite young man but very knowledgeable and felt very safe in his hands. Lunch was good. Be prepared the Colorado water is like chocolate milk brown and muddy. Your clothes will turn brown. Only complaints 1)we were told there would be 8 people on our boat and they put 11 plus the guide. It is very crowded and makes for a long trip when you have no room to turn around or even stretch your legs, with covid you are right next to each other so if you don't want to be up close & personal with strangers this isn't the tour for you. 2)come dressed for the tour no changing rooms at the facility. 3) front desk clerk is beyond rude, don't ask questions unless you want to feel scolded!

We had a great time. Lunch was chicken Caesar wraps that were delicious but not what I would consider a buffet lunch. We had 2 different guides, both were great! I thought the water rafting would be a little more of a thrill but can’t help water levels. Overall a great trip!

This was a fabulous experience for my family and I! Tyler, our 4x4 guide, promptly picked us up in front of our RV campground (we had no other mode of transportation). He was friendly, knowledgeable, energetic and it was obvious that he enjoys his job and takes pride in sharing info about Canyonlands! Plus, he was happy to take pictures of us at any point throughout the drive! Next was the river raft portion...this part started out a little more disorganized. There were several people waiting outside the office as we all waited for instructions. After a while they herded us on to vans for a drive up river to the meeting point. There there were other rafters getting out of the river (both same company and others) mixed with new riders. It was blazing hot, little shade, little direction, much confusion. Finally we ate and got in a raft. Our company had 3 rafts. With this company you do not paddle at all, there's one paddler/guide per raft and 8-10 people in the raft with you.
