Our guide Preston was fantastic! He was very friendly, had a great sense of humor and super knowledgeable about the area. He was also patient and encouraging with the guests on our float who were first timers in kayaks. Picked us up at our hotel in Vegas right on time. Was a little less than a one hour drive to the launch. Kayaks were in excellent condition and the 4 mile trip was absolutely beautiful. The cave was smaller than we expected but made for some incredible pictures nonetheless. Took a short little hike for another great photo opp, enjoyed some light but energizing snacks, they provided plenty of water and we enjoyed the company of the 7 other guests on our float. DO plan to be gone most of the day. We were picked up at 11:00 and got back to our hotel about 6:00. We would highly recommend!

Great, but cave was nonexistent

If you like kayaking this is great, BUT the cave is very small. I would not even say it is a cave. The trip was better as a kayaking trip than the “cave”.

We had an amazing group and our guide was fun and awesome. We were a little let down at how small the cavern was. But other than that it was an amazing experience.

Riverdogz was an amazing tour company. Starting with the communication, I received texts the day before and day of the tour to let me know where to meet and that they were excited for to see me. Now transportation, the pick up was painless and easy to find, the drive was fun and informative, not to mention comfortable ! I enjoyed the fact that the people in our van were the same people on our tour. Our guide, Michelle, was a breath of fresh air with her positive attitude, fun stories, and focus on safety! She was the key that made my trip very memorable. As a single traveler she made sure I had amazing pictures and didn't get lost in the group! Her willingness to share her experiences really enhanced the tour! Keep it up Michelle you rock! Finally, the kayaking itself was great, not too strenuous, beautiful views, gorgeous weather, cool water, great snacks! This was truly an inspiring experience for me that has me wanting to kayak more and more!

Great day on the river. Cave was cool, The scenery was magnificent. Swimming in the Colorado River was refreshing, the water is so clear you can see the bottom (Idk about the rest of the country but for us northeasterners waters not that clear). Our Guide Ty was cool as hell (and really good with the inexperienced boaters) He made the experience so much better

My husband and I had a wonderful time. Our guide Michelle was outstanding, my favorite part was seeing the baby mountain sheep, and my husband simply loved the cave My husband enjoyed jumping in the freezing water I was not that brave. The scenery was breathtaking. It was a wonderful trip overall.
