Amazing tour and allows dogs!
Sep 2021
We did the tour with Alyssa and we LOVED it!! Alyssa had a very fun personality and was very accommodating to us. We brought our dog along on the tour and Alyssa was so patient and understanding when she jumped out of the kayak in the middle of the river! She helped to tether our dog so she would stay in the kayak. I really liked that River Dogz books smaller groups for tours as opposed to other companies who will book out more than 20 people for a tour. I felt that our small group got to know each other well and we had a great time. Spectacular views and amazing green of the Emerald cave! We would love to go back and do the full 12 mile tour sometime. This was the only tour I found that would allow our dog to come along, so I booked it, but I am blown away with the experience and the quality of the tour. Highly recommend this tour company!

Super excellenté time
What a phenomenal time. Didn’t really know what to expect but it was so worth it. This was a surprise birthday tour for my wife and she loved it. Perfect amount of time - not to far from Vegas - and the guides knew their jobs well. Happy to recommend to all my favorite friends and revisit when my arms have refreshed. Thank you Preston for being extra profession with us.

Must do when in Vegas
This has been one of my favorite things to do when in Vegas. This was my first time kayaking and had an absolute blast. My arms felt a little sore afterwards but it was TOTALLY worth it. SUP kayak company had awesome communication, excellent equipment and our tour guide Eddie was awesome too. They provided water and snacks. Bring plenty of sunscreen and enjoy the water and views!

Great escape
Sep 2021
We had a great time, my first time in a kayak, my husband and I did singles, but it was no problem. It was a very pleasant escape after 3 days of a very crowded holiday weekend in Vegas. It made our whole vacation. I recommend layers, because you are on the very cool water, you don't realize just how much sun exposure you get. It was nice to have a shirt with SPF on the paddle back. WEAR SUNSCREEN and bring a hat. Michelle was our guide...she was GREAT, took tons of pictures for us, and we had them transferred to our phones before she dropped us off.
