My 50th Birthday trip with my Family so we wanted to do something differ and fun in Las Vegas “Off the strip”. I’m glad we did!! Our Driver Antonio (Tony) was so Awesome! He communicated very well via text prior to the trip and was on time to pick us up as promised! Loved the history of the area during the drive. I haven’t been in a Kayak in 20 years and never did a tandem Kayak. Tony was a great teacher and kept us Safe in the water when the wind picked up. And after all that he drove us back to our Hotel on time! Wow! Thank you Tony! We would absolutely do this again in the future with River Dogs!

We had Nick from River Dogz as our tour guide. He was amazing!! Very helpful , informative and enthusiastically instructive. He kept us all running smoothly. Nick especially took the time to assist me in getting in and out of my kayak and getting me anywhere I needed to be. Since I walk a cane its a little difficult and I truly appreciated his efforts in making my day comfortable and memorable. I will recommend this tour to Everyone I hear headed to Vegas. The scenery, water and our guide Nick were all spectacular. Thank so much for a great day Jacqueline 7

It was a such an amazing day trip! Each group has a tour guide and he/she will pick you up @hotel. We left hotel before 11:30 am and it took about one hour to get to the willow beach. This place is for beginners. No high skill requires for kayaking. We just enjoyed rowlling and scenery. Our tour guide was Nick and he also took really nice pictures!! We backed our hotel around 5:30pm. It was fun day trip!

Great day on the river

This was an amazing way to spend the afternoon outside of Vegas. The water was beautiful, our guide Preston was great, very informative but entertaining. It was very nice to be picked up and dropped off and to not have to worry about all the details. Preston took care of everything and made this an amazing day. The cave was a little underwhelming but I'm still very grateful for the opportunity to have seen it. The entire river was beautiful and the trip was well worth it!!

Thank you for the awesome review! We agree - Preston is an amazing guide. We hope to see you again soon

Honestly, the best part of this trip is the trip up and down the river itself. The cave is cool but it’s really just a crescendo on the journey. The river and mountains are beautiful and need to be experienced in person to really grasp the enormity and grace of it all. Zack guided us and was exceptionally knowledgeable on the history, flora and fauna of the area. He is also very astute and made sure that we were all safe and within range of him at all times. We will absolutely be returning for another kayak trip when we visit Nevada again.

Thank you for the sick review!! Zack is an amazing guide, we definitely agree. We can't wait to see you in the future!

The journey back from the cave with additional areas of green water which combined with the mountains for very dramatic scenery. We also saw big horn sheep on the way to the marina, bald eagles and other wild life as we paddled down the river
