What people are saying about Boulder City

We had a great time. Sam especially was a wonderful guide. The water was perfect and breathtaking views. Sam pointed out interesting points along the way. Most importantly,Sam checked on everyone to make sure they were safe a comfortable. The wind picked up making it workout to get back- he was great and reassuring to newer kayakers. Everyone was tired and talking about how fun it was on the ride back to the strip. The cove itself was no big deal. Still worth getting out on the water and enjoy. It would of been nice to have time to swim and play in the water while we were there. The wind made it necessary to turn back at the end becausr had head wind. Highly recommend- but don’t go just for the cave . It’s underwhelming.

Jason and Brian are excellent tour guides. They saw to it that every passenger on the trip was taken care of and no one was left behind at any of the sites. Their strategy of getting out early to the Grand Canyon was brilliant as we were the first ones in the park and left just as all the crowds started to come in. Their knowledge of the area is tremendous and were able to combine humor with facts as we proceeded along our journey. They gave special attention to my 8 year old daughter which is something my wife and I greatly appreciated. I would book another tour with them any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

They picked us up early that morning of the tour. We got to the Grand Canyon early that morning. We beat the crowds & the heat. We went to the Hoover Dam. It was very pleasant & enjoyable experience. It was worth every penny!!!

It was a great kayak trip. So convenient to be pick-up at our hotel.

was a fun challenging experience. our guide was awesome
