Well beyond my expectations!   This was an incredible experience. My brother and I took my father, for his 80th birthday, on a trip to retrace the path of one of his heroes, John Wesley Powell.  We took the Desolation Canyon trip. Everything about it was exceptional- the guides, the scenery, the plane trip, the food… even the weather (you can take credit for that!). My father has been raving about it since. Thank you for an incredible experience!

5-day Green River through Desolation Canyon

T.J. and Lauren knew interesting stories about the history of the canyon, told us about the geology, showed us fossils, told awful jokes, cooked amazing food and shared their love of the river and the canyon. They seemed to genuinely enjoy all the people too. And they accommodated the interests of the group from stopping at Sand Island so we could see the petroglyphs, to helping us get to the best place for a chance to see the eclipse of the sun. I was impressed by how the logistics and equipment have changed in the 40 years since I was last on a Holiday trip — more elegant without changing the basic river experience.  (The Bano, hand washing stations, drinking water, already inflated self-bailing boats! The food was always good, and it is even better now.) I didn’t take any pictures so I’m looking forward to seeing what T.J. and Lauren took.

Our group had a fabulous time on the White Rim. The guides were great and made fantastic food. We were able to view the eclipse which was magnificent! We cannot wait to do another trip with Holiday!

The guides were outstanding! The food was delicious! I don’t see how anything could have been better.  This was definitely a 5 star experience. I would go with Holiday again in a heartbeat. Our group was especially interested in trying to see the solar eclipse, and the guides were most accommodating, even though it wasn’t on the original agenda. They were wonderful.

If I could put multiple stars on these ratings, I would!  I’ve done river trips with many rafting companies. Holiday will always be my favorite company. The rafts, food, professional and friendly guides, and efficient organization all contributed to a wonderful experience. I hope to have many trips with Holiday in the future.

Everything was done beautifully and graciously by your Guides: Dave, Sandy, Jesse, and Christian. They could not have been better.   The entire trip was beautifully organized and graciously run by the Holiday Guides.
