10/10 experience, must try if you are newbie for kayaking!

We loved it so much! We are totally newbie but our guide is not only professional but also very knowledgeable and informing us every little history along the river and some nature knowledge. We feel this is one of the life time thing you must do if you are new to kayaking! And some notes is be sure to bring some shoes for water sports! and if it's possible come around Thanksgiving season that the water is cool and weather is super nice! Shout out to River Dogz LV whole crew! they did a wonderful jobs! Thanks again!

Hello , very sorry you had this experience! I am checking into this now and I can assure you this is not our standard of service ! We leave no one behind and please call us and let us know who your guide was this day ! My guides have extra floaters (extra guide )to help slower paddlers who can can’t keep up with the group ! The floater should have been contacted on the radio to assist you ! Safety and fun is our number 1 priority! I will personally talk to the guide so please call me at 702-901-1060 Matthew

Awesome time! Zack gave every opportunity to see a whole bunch of awesome stuff on the tip. From making the little stops to show things that people would normally miss. To making sure to explain and tell us all the details on everything we saw. Zack really made the trip way better then any of us expected. He also eased any anxieties the beginners in our group had and everyone ended up having a great time.
