All aspects of this were fantastic. Our guide was great and knew the river really well. I highly recommend this trip. My only regret was that it was over too soon.

Our raft guide was great. He showed us a very fun time navigating Class 3 & 4 rapids while also explaining various nature and wildlife along the river. This is a must do tour!
