The tour was well organized, generously supplied with (ice cold) water and snacks, informative, and the kayaking was a lot of fun. Our guide also took photos and then AirDropped them at the end which was a very nice touch. Started on time and arrived back at the hotel on-track with the schedule provided.

Rocky day in the Colorado River via Kyaking

I am rating this tour a "5 Star" due to our tour guide and trooper Ted and his team member on that particular tour day. Ted and team member did an "amazing" job in such a rough day across the Colorado river. Very windy day! As for the excursion, that day Viator Company should have cancelled the tour and/or better informed us of how rough the waters were going to be due to 25+ mile winds. Again, Ted and team member did a "superb" job as our tour guides. Viator Company needs to be considerate with its customers.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Wow what a windy day indeed! Sometimes mother nature hands us a fun one. Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip and I will pass this along to Ted. Hope to see you again on your next trip!
