Rated 5 out of 5 by Dshofner 12 Mile River Raft Trip with Jody
Jody was a fantastic captain and tour guide! The wealth of information taken away from this trip along with the majesty of the scenic beauty of the land, river, and sky was immense. Far better than being on the concrete jungle in downtown Vegas that's for certain! Kudos to Jody for being an amazing personality and captain for our journey. Certainly a trip of a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChadBrenda Overall great tour with variety from different areas.
The 12 mile trip down the Colorado river was excellent. The tour guide on the boat was very knowledgeable and sociable. The return tour to the Hoover Dam was also excellent and the two tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Only down side of the trip was the initial pick up was incorrect from Adventure Tours and we were picked up 45 minutes late. The van was definitely not comfortable and the driver/ tour guide was not very personable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sadme So disappointed. The ride there in a van with bad shocks ,stuffed in like sardines !
The van that picked us up was in need of shocks, so many bumps and we were stuffed in like sardines. Horrible start! ! The rafting part was awesome. When we arrived in willow beach the ride was there, but insisted on a voucher. HUH? What was he talking about? We were in the middle of our adventure how was I supposed to know it was a whole other tour. ..I had our id, we just got off the raft, but the new tour guide insisted on something I was told Nothing about. He threatened to leave us. I was mortified! ! He had our names and he had our Confirmation number, what more could he need. He did not even want our ID's. Finally I had retrieved an email and he agreed to take us. I was MORE than upset. What would we have done on a beach with no transportation, it was Ridiculous! !! The whole rest of the trip was Regrettable. I would not recommend this tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nina14 Awesome way to relax in Las Vegas
The river raft portion of the tour provided awesome scenery and was a great way to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and take a break from the Las Vegas flash and glitter. We enjoyed the tour of the Hoover Dam as well. Just enough time to see it all, take the tour and spend a few minutes wandering, taking pictures and shopping in the gift store. We returned to Vegas refreshed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Costi Great day out
Day started with a raft ride down the Colorado River, if you have Brian as your captain you will be in for a ball, he really made the tour. The little picnic lunch was adequate for what you needed and the best bit was you get to keep the little lunch bag - I do love a freebie. Be prepared to get a little wet if you sit at the front of the raft or on the outer rim, but that's all part of the fun. After the raft ride ( about 2 hours ish) we then got picked up and taken to the Hoover Dam, plant tour included, with plenty of time to look round. I would definitely recommend this tour

Rated 5 out of 5 by KeithCarol Excellent tour guides from pick up to drop off.
Excellent experience. River rafting was unbelievably beautiful. Our knowledgeable guide made sure everyone had enough water and cooling towels. Tour of the Dam has certainly been curtailed since 9/11, but it was very educational. Would highly recommend this tour!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eagleeyedoug A Trip Worth Taking
Although the rip got off to a poor start when the Rafting Co. van picked us up 30 minutes past the quoted pick up window of 20 minutes, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Seeing Hoover Dam from above is awe inspiring, seeing it from water level is beyond description. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the dam, the geology of the region and the flora and fauna. The stage was set when the guide indicated that he had not seen mountain sheep in his past three trips up and down the canyon. The group was excited when I spotted a long sheep not far from the river with about an hour to go. The trip was made when the guide spotted a group of a dozen with about a mile to go in the trip.
After the float down the Colorado, we hopped in a comfortable Ford Expedition for the trip back to the dam and the opportunity to see the power plant and exhibitions.
