A truly great experience

My friends and I originally wanted to do a paddling trip but we organised it too late and we had to resort to a motorised rafting trip. But I have no regrets whatsoever! Coming from France (I didn’t really really know what to expect) I met very nice and fun people of every age which

Every day was stunning

This trip is one of the best things my son and I have ever done. The Canyon itself is the star of the show (of course) but the CRATE raft guides provided the perfect combo of adventure (hikes and exploring) and comfort (good food and just the right blend of daring and safety on the


Grand Canyon Rafting for Family with pre-teens, teens, and grandpa

My husband kept waiting for our youngest to turn 12 so we could take them all camping and rafting down the Colorado River and see the birdseye view of the Grand Canyon. CRATE made the trip perfect! I have 7 children 12-18, and we brought them all along with Grandpa Fred, 86. I am not

Amazing Rafting Experience

2 weeks ago I had one of the most amazing vacations of my life, a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon with CRATE. The hike down to the boat was quite a struggle (especially for a non-hiker), but it was more than worth it. Our 5 day, 4 night trip was filled with delicious meals,

5 day, Hike-in and Heli-out trip August 7-11 (Trip of a Life Time)

OMG, this really is one of those trips that exceeds all expectations and you leave with your head spinning, realizing what an adventure you were just on and then trying to fiqure out how to explain it. The hike down to the river from the rim was great. Tip: Have mules take the heavy stuff


All around – great!

I had visited the Grand Canyon previous to this trip, but only for a quick visit around the various viewing points on the south rim. I knew that I had to come back for a proper and in-depth visit and began exploring various options offered by different rafting companies. It was our good fortune to


Just do it — but spend a week!

If rafting the Grand Canyon is on your list, CRATE is the way to go! Our 9-day, 8-night trip on motorized rafts through the entire canyon can only be described in positive superlatives: fabulous guides, excellent planning, great meals, hugely informative & entertaining. Exciting rapids, and equally exhilerating sunrises. In the run-up to the trip,


Trip of a Lifetime!!!

We embarked on our adventure with anticipation and hopes of a good time. Never could we have expected what was in store for us. Walker was professional, knowledgeable and efficient. He shared his experiences with a passion and took care of us all with a responsibility that afforded us security and confidence. He educated us,

Trip of a Lifetime

Took the 8-day float down the Grand Canyon on the motorized rafts. The crew took very good care of us the entire time. Meals were very exceptional and plentiful plus lots of snacks and drinks on the river. Running the rapids was loads of fun. We always felt very safe and secure in the hands

Grand Canyon Rafting Trip – 8 days & 280 miles on the Colorado River with CRATE

This trip exceeded all expectations that I had going into the trip. The Grand Canyon is an amazing place. Truly a great wonder of the world. The Guides at CRATE were awesome!!! They went above and beyond to ensure all 22 people in our group had a great time. They worked from sun up to


8-9 day, 277 mile, motorized raft trip in May 2012

Having seen the canyon from the top I thought I knew what I’d be seeing on the raft trip, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Seeing the Grand Canyon from the river was a wonderful experience that I hope to encourage my friends and family to repeat with me. We went on a 9 day,


Amazing trip with CRATE!

This was a once in a lifetime experience. The beauty and grandeur of the canyon were amplified by the knowledge and hard work of our guides. I can’t thank Crate more for giving our group a challenging, rewarding and relaxing adventure. This is a trip that will bond you with people and nature. This is



I’ve taken multiple trips down the river with other companies. I must say this last trip with CRATE was the best by far!! These guys have it figured out! The boat layout is the most comfortable I’ve been on and allows for easy socialization with others on the raft. The food was great! The guides!!

8 days below the rim.

Completely amazing trip! The week i was supposed to leave with everyone else to go to the south rim, my plans changed and i wasnt able to make it for the start of the trip. Vikki, the owner of CRATE, was very accommodating and within a few hours had a new itinerary for me. I

June 2-9 motorized raft trip in Grand Canyon

If you’re looking for a safe, comfortable trip down the GC, you could not do better than go with CRATE. The guides are very knowledgeable about the geology, history and wildlife in the Canyon and serve up unbelievably good meals. There are lots of chances to get out of the raft for pit stops and

8 day motorized rafting trip on Colorado River thru the Grand Canyon

This was a trip of a life time. Walker and his crew were wonderful. They provided knowledgeable information of the geology and history of the area. The food was delicious.

The only way to really see the Grand Canyon

I was anxious about spending the money this trip cost but it was worth twice the amount. The views were breathtaking as was the white water. CRATE runs a first class outfit. Plenty of side trips, down time and activity to balance every day perfectly. The meals were outstanding and very unexpected. Dewey even made



What a great time. I have been rafting with other river companies but no one comes close to the experience and customer service offered by CRATE. My dietary concerns (vegetarian) were not a problem, food was great at every meal. I had the opportunity to hike as much as I wanted, or conversely just laze
