This experience was fantastic. The guides were informative and encouraging. They were accommodating to all speeds, and safety highly stressed. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and highly recommend it. I'll do it again soon.

Would've been a great trip had they not first debited my bank account $800.00 instead of $300.00 and when they tried to fix it they still overcharged me $260.00. Now over two weeks later they continue to stonewall the refund. Not good at all.
