Guides group

Canyoneers’ river staff—a small team of students, teachers, and outdoor recreational professionals—frequently say they have some of the best summer jobs in the world.

That may be because they enjoy their work so much. They’re versed in the natural and human history of the canyon, as well as personal fields of interest which they’ll be glad to share with you to make your trip enjoyable, instructive, and entertaining.

Around the turn of the century Grand Canyon was inhabited by some very colorful frontier–type characters. Our river folks can tell you about those too. Before your trip is over you may suspect that your guides are some of today’s and maybe tomorrow’s canyon characters.
