Family of 6 on spring break enjoyed the beautiful scenery and fun rafting. Milkman and Sandy and another guide(sorry I forget her name) helped us greatly after our boat feel victim to "battleship".Only criticism--please give guides communication devices! Wonderful trip despite joining the Lehigh River...More
