This is what customers are saying about our tours:
“The best experience of our trip of the West was in Page and the tour of Antelope canyon. The team at Paddle Express was top notch. They had everything ready on time. Our guide (Sean) was very knowledgeable about the history of the canyon, as well as the waterways. We learned so much. Very patient, and helpful through the entire trip. We were the only group on the tour, and we were not rushed at all. Sean even took pictures (ALOT) during the whole tour and sent them to us which was a very nice gesture. He also gave us professional photographer tips. I can not praise Paddle Express enough. It was a one of a kind trip that we will never forget.”
