Grand Canyon River outfitters

Howdy ya'll,
I just landed a permit for the Grand Canyon launcing May 30th and I wanted to see what ya'll recommendations were for outfitters. The only outfitter I have talked with is Canyon REO and they seem to be pretty reasonable, but I wanted to see what the mtn buzz community had to say about outfitters.

We're basically looking for rafts/rigs, food, and shuttle service...

thanks in advance for any suggestions.

For all those needs I recommend Moenkopi Riverworks. The company is very personal and informative. Also versatile to the needs of your individual trip. The man in charge is Brady, and he is your best friend if you're headed to the Grand.

+1 for Brady at Moenkopi. So much good food I gained weight on the trip.

another + for Moenkopi. They were the only ones willing to help us out of a tight fix 2 weeks before our grand trip. They get a thumbs up in my book!

That was my first choice... Congrats.

We went with PRO (Professional River Outfitters). They were extremely helpful in working with us and our unique situation. I would definatly recomend them. Small personal interactive feeling and the boats in their boatroom looked awsome.
If you are lucky enough to be in the mountains, you are lucky enough.

we used canyon reo. they were extremely flexible and were very accommodating with constant changes to our equipment and food and shuttle packages due to all the people who said that they could go and then backed out at the last minute. they were great because they let us do a piecemeal thing with some of our own rafts and equipment and some of their equipment. the food was excellent, nobody ever went hungry, and we had tons of ice for drinks even on the last nights of a 21 day trip in september with temperatures around 100 during the days.

Another vote for Brady and Moe.

And a big no for PRO. They were extremely unhelpful in (not)working with me. A simple task too.
