This tour surpassed our expectations. The driver arrived on time and fully explained what to expect. Our guide, Elijah, was just amazing! It was a hot Fay in the Canyon but the cold river felt great, and going over the turbulence was thrilling! My friends and I would do this tour again in a second!!

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you and your family. We strive to have the best adventure possible from Las Vegas and surrounding areas. My favorite spot is the Mineral Springs Waterfall and rope ladder. I love the history of that area and the geologic formations that have developed over the centuries. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to seeing you on one of our other trips soon. Best to all. Randy

Took this activity this past Wednesday. Had too much trouble with the motor on the boat. The view and our driver, Ron, more than made up for it!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Hi, Sorry to hear about the engine issues. It's been a bit more frequent this past season. Ironically it's due to Covid disrupting the supply lines for the Yamaha/Honda Outboard motors making the engines we use very difficult to procure. It's been getting better recently but it does seem the hotter it gets the more that particular issue appears. Thank you for your patience and understanding on the trip. Everyone wants the best outcomes everytime we take out on an adventure. Take care, Randy, Let's Go Tours.

Excellent trip. Views and activity are great, all staff was wonderful. Only 1 complaint - tour was sold with helicopter exit, there was no helicopter
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Hi, yes some people that booked earlier in the year would have had the helicopter if chosen. Recently the dock has had some issues and they have cancelled the helicopter as they cannot land there. all together It's not worth it at the new $149 price they want to sell it at. We never sold it at the new rate. We had a few sales go thru at the old rate of 90.00 which you should get a complete refund for. Email me and I will make sure your refunded for your helicopter portion. I apologize for the inconvenience. Best, Randy

We loved the experience immensely. Our guides were very helpful , friendly , and taught us a lot about the area and the tribal culture. We loved the hike up to the falls , too. Our van drivers were also excellent. Our only issue - we thought we were to take a helicopter return trip. It’s not clear what happened to that plan , but we were looking forward to the flight. It was a very long day for us. But we were happy you found us an alternate carrier. Thanks to all of the DC9 ( I think) people who made it possible.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Hi, yes the helicopter can be a bit of contention. It's just to get you out of the canyon not back to your starting point. This year they raised the price from 90 dollars to 140 dollars. Which is out of line for a six minute flight. We decided not to offer it any longer as it isn't worth it. If it brought you back to Vegas or even the starting point that would be great but that's not what it's designed for. It is available Thursday's thru Sunday each week but recently the dock area has issues and they have cancelled it for most of the season going forward. So issues with the helicopter never seem to go away. So we no longer offer it. I'm glad you had a great trip. Best to you guys. See you next itme, Randy

Aren't' the views just amazing. Everytime I get to go on a trip I always bring my camera looking for a new angle for a picture and I'm never disappointed. Thank you for your kind description. Regards, Randy
