Our guide, Ben, was phenominal!
If 5 is the best, then 5 (I would even go with 6 on that scale!)
We are already thinking about a return trip. First, our guide, Ben, was phenomenal. We had our 9 and 11 year old daughters with us, and we felt very safe and in excellent hands. His skill was plainly obvious as we passwd through rapids smoothly and cleanly. Second, the boats and equipment were all in excellent shape. The fact that we all had footholds is a small but important detail. Finally, the attention to safety is greatly appreciated. Having spotters on the side of the river in difficult rapids, for example, is impressive. Overall, this was an excellent first experience for my family!
