My life’s work is the care for, and protection of, our nation’s wealth, it’s natural resources. I am so very impressed by your company’s, and your guide’s diligent care and stewardship for the long term health of the Grand Canyon ecosystem and river corridor. Indeed, I feel very good about booking with your company and am confident that the future of this precious place is in great hands as long as your company and personnel are caring for it and working within it.
Wow-our river guides were amazing. Very personable, and clearly focused on our group safety at all times. I appreciated that two of them were women as well...great role models for the teenage girls in our trip! I know they were stressed about the uncertainty of the COVID world, but I think they adapted to new protocols well, and as a result, our trip was an awesome experience, and a relief from the stress of the current world.
I couldn't have asked for a better time. Ever. This was 14 days of pure joy and adventure. It went by so fast, too. I wish it never ended. There were so many highlights from the river, guides, stories, Little Colorado River being so blue, the stars at night so bright, the moon at night, the critters, the hikes were AMAZING, the waterfalls, the other customers, the food, the good times at night in camp eating and telling stories and having fun. I could go on and on
I was apprehensive before this trip, but once I arrived the experience was fantastic. The highlight, for me, was breaking through my fear on both the water and the hikes. I could not have done this without the care and expertise of the guides! I especially appreciated Lorna's vast experience and quiet guidance, Chad's support on the scary hikes (I could not have done them without him), Colin's joie de vivre and his encouragement on my one experience on the back of his dory, Somer's eternal positive attitude, John's music and love of the river (and the flowers), Jim's excellent food management and my peaceful experience with him on our final float on the river. I really did not know what to expect.....but my experience could not have been more positive. We are so happy we chose AZRA (recommended to us by my husband John's connections with Wildland Trekking). The experience and expertise of the guides made all the difference for me. Gently, they helped me get beyond my fear of the rapids and the scary hikes. This was quite transformational for me! I absolutely loved being on the river for 16 days, away from civilization, news, internet, to do lists, obligations etc.
