Meet your guide in central Moab to start the first portion of your combo adventure, a 4-hour tour of Canyonlands National Park by 4WD. Hop into the vehicle for a thrilling morning drive over rugged terrain to the Island in the Sky. From here, your guide traverses switchbacks to White Rim Road, a 100-mile (160-km) loop situated roughly 1,000 feet (300 meters) below the mesa and the same distance above the Colorado and Green rivers.  
Your guide follows a section of the White Rim Road where you're treated to a panoramic vista of Fossil Point before connecting to the Shafer Trail. Listen as your guide shares the human and natural history of Canyonlands, and stop for photo ops of ancient rock art en route to the mesa summit before refueling with a riverside buffet lunch.
Next, you'll descend the canyon to ride the white-water rapids of the Colorado River, including the Fisher Towers area that features soaring canyon walls, giant rock spires and plenty of wildlife. This 4-hour portion of your adventure begins with a safety briefing. Once you're outfitted with a life jacket, climb into an awaiting raft with a river guide who expertly navigates your raft over Class II and III rapids. 
Rest assured that sections of calm water follow, where you can relax, take photos (waterproof bag provided) or even swim if temperatures allow. After a fun-filled day off-roading and rafting in this spectacular wilderness, you are returned to Moab where your tour ends.

Four of us, aged from 9 yr to 70 yr. Perfect choice for us. We did the drive in the morning and the rafting in the afternoon. The guides were very very knowledgeable and showed great empathy to us and the different needs of our party. A special shoutout to Doug and Jonah!

Buzz was the guide for the 4-wheeling part of our day. He was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the environment giving us a deeper appreciation of its beauty and challenges to its sustainability.
Emily was our delightfully refreshing guide on the floating leg of our day. Her enthusiasm and joy for her work gave us the most amazing afternoon on the river.

The Canyonlands Jeep Tour with Tyler was amazing and well worth it. He kept the tour fun and interesting and we were able to stop and take spectacular pictures along the way. The afternoon white water rafting was mediocre at best. The description claims you'll be going over Level 2 and 3 rapids. We had Level 1 and only a few Level 2 rapids. Our guide, Kolton, was great and allowed the kids to swim at different spots along the way. The water level in the Colorado river was low, so not sure if that contributed to it, but we were hoping for a more exciting ride. If I could rate each experience separately I'd give the jeep tour a 5 star and the Colorado River Rafting a 2.5 star. Both guides were excellent.

This tour was great! I know we saw so much more of Canyonlands than we ever would've seen on our own. Buzz was not only fun but very knowledgeable as well! Our raft trip with Tubs was a perfect afternoon activity.

We had wanted to do the full day Canyonlands trip, but thee were not enough of us. The company were very helpful in offering suitable alternative.
The jeep trip was stunning.
The rafting was nice, A drift rather than white water. It was lovely swimming in the river

We did a jeep tour in the morning and a rafting tour in the afternoon. Everybody loved it! Guides were great, very informative and fun! Can't wait to do it again next year.

Alex was our driver for the 4 wheel drive part of the tour. It was a very scenic tour of the Canyonlands National Park area and we learned a lot about the back ground for the area. We stopped and took a lot of pictures after that we went down the river with Owen for the rafting part of the tour. Their was some white water, but it was mainly just a float. We ate sandwiches for lunch and got to sample the Palisades peaches. I would recommend bringing a water bottle, even though water is provides its only in cups.

The guides all made us feel like family and you could tell they took pride in the area and their jobs

Enjoyed the tour of Canyonlands and felt that we saw much more than we would on our own. Would recommend this. The rafting portion was disappointing. Although it was relaxing, there was a lot of wasted time spent traveling and having lunch and the time spent on the river was not nearly as exciting as other rafting experiences that we have had elsewhere.

Our driver, John, was extremely knowledgeable and shared many personal stories about the area as well as an enormous amount of history and geologic information. The views were breathtaking and it felt like we were seeing parts of the canyon that not many see. I've read many complaints about the wait time in between the ride and the rafting and the set up problems for lunch, but both were minimal and gave us a chance to talk with others on the trip. Once on the river, our new guide Addie was amazing as were all the others that we came in contact with on the river. She also knew so much about the area and the formations along the ride. Again, many have complained about the slow ride down the river and lack of rapids. They don't advertise it as anything other than a float. We entertained ourselves with the sheer beauty of the area, epic water fights with other rafts, time to swim in the river and enjoy each others' company.
