It was a well organized, relaxing trip down the river. All the guides were helpful and friendly. It was nice even though lightning struck twice on the river. We made it back before it poured. I'd recommend the place!👍

This was the first time my kids had been zip lining and they had a blast. The guys helping us out (Jake, Jacob and Sean) were so friendly and great with the kids and the adults zipping with them.
