Went on a day trip, and although the staff at the business was very nice, including driver and guide, the equipment was old and did not engender a lot of confidence for us. The guide was fantastic, think his name was Greg or Craig, sorry...More

Had a great day on the river with our guide, Louis. We saw petroglyphs, cliff dwelling ruins, lots of bighorn sheep, up close. Weather was great, couldn't have had a better day on the River!

No, I don't think they do. Our trip was about 7 hours long and we did not see any other landing points on the river which could have been used for a shorter trip.
