Karen and Tammy were wonderful! The “what to pack” list was extremely helpful for my parents, who hadn’t done a river trip in years. It also helped Pat and I remember what to bring. The website is loaded with information that is both necessary and fun (and interesting), and it is easy to navigate. Everything exceeded expectations, and having been a former guide, and a former guest of Holiday River Expeditions, our expectations were already high. my son and my step mom, who were both on their first “real” rivertrips, were so impressed with everything, but especially the food – both the quality and the quantity. Just spectacular, in every way. The guides were wonderful, skilled, and knowledgeable, and not only we really we provided with excellent food, but we also received lessons on the geology in each area we camped and passed through. It’s always amazing to me how a group of guests starts out each in their own comfort zone, but by the second night, or sometimes even the first, everyone is sitting together, sharing all sorts of stories late into the night. One of the guides, I wish I could remember who, commented that when he drives the shuttle, he is always so amazed at how the group of people entering the river on the first day in no way resembles the group exiting on the last – people are more relaxed, and have completely surrendered to the power of the river, the canyons, and the experience.
3-day Colorado River Westwater Canyon
van Dyck – Weiler’s ~ Maple Valley, WA
Our guides rocked, the food was great and very unexpected. This was the best trip my husband and I have ever taken. All our guides, Jordan, Kailei, Molly, Brian, Doug, and Mike were amazing. They always practiced safety first, but knew how to have a good time as well. We couldn’t believe how good the food was and hope we can imitate it when we go camping. There is no way this will be our last trip with Holiday River Expeditions.
4-day Green River Lodore Canyon
Hooper Majawski ~ Mechanicsville, VA
The food was awesome. The guides polite and attentive. Biking was challenging, but well worth the effort. We loved Onion Creek! We had an awesome trip. The biking was challenging, but well worth the effort! We loved Onion Creek, especially going through the creek! And the views were spectacular :). The food and guides were top notch. Rafting was a blast!
4-day Moab Mountain Biking – Westwater Rafting Combination Trip
Kerri & Greg Roche Rolland ~ Spring, TX
Our guides (Dave, Shawn, Tom, and Jesse) were excellent and made the trip a fun, relaxing and very enjoyable experience. Rafts were very well designed and met all our needs – thrilling ride through the rapids and great swimming.
2-day Colorado River Westwater Canyon
David & Lisa Norby Shaver ~ Littleton, CO
After completing so many trips with Holiday, Tammy & I are good friends. There is never any problem & it is always a pleasure booking a trip. Lead Guide LB is special. He guided my whole family through the big day in Cataract Canyon. It was great being on the river with all four guides. The whole trip came off great in all catagories. Each trip with Holiday is different. All trips are very well run. I am a “gear guy” and notice the Holiday setup and it is clever!
5-day Colorado River Cataract Canyon
The Wahrmund Family ~ Kingwood, TX
From K. Marcus ~ Narberth, PA 4-day Green River Lodore Canyon ~ My rafting trip through the majestic Canyon of Lodore on the Green River was a spectacular, exhilarating experience. It was a wonderful mix of being both challenged and pampered. The guides of Holiday Expeditions were experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and fun. They gave us the experience of a lifetime!
From the Baldwin Family ~ Butte Valley, CA 3-day Colorado River Westwater Canyon ~ This was my 6th trip with Holiday, which gives you an idea of my overall satisfaction with the company. Our trip leader, Sean, was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He was fun, engaged, sociable and yet took his duties very seriously. We were very impressed by his skills and professional demeanor, the perfect trip leader! All the guides were great, but Sean went above and beyond in my opinion. My wife, my daughter, my grandaughter and I just returned from out trip down Westwater, what a fantastic vacation. My 6th trip with Holiday, and the quality insures there will be a 7th!
From E. Moore ~ Tapon Springs, FL 4-day Green River Lodore Canyon ~ I enjoyed every minute of this trip! I have never considered “rough” camping before, but this was the best way to go. The food was abundant, well prepared and delicious. The guides were very knowledgeable and extremely capable and professional. Plus they were all delightful young women that were a welcome addition to our women’s group.
