Your "crew" of river guides, will be a balance of men and women, with diverse personalities, skills, and interpretive training. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, and walks of life. Their depth of knowledge, the extent of their training, and the interests they pursue outside of guiding often come as a surprise to guests.
Viewing themselves as fellow travelers, our guides share of themselves as well as information about the Canyon’s history, natural sciences and environmental politics. They are passionate about these topics and practically live for discussing them in the outdoor classroom. It is the guides who bring the Canyon to life with stories and information.
Our hands-on, high interaction approach to exploring camping, learning, eating and laughing together enable your guides to discover your interests and desires for your trip.
