Had a great time with Will and Kate. Will was our guide on the water and he was a pleasure to be around. Gave us all the head stand challenge. Was our first time and hopefully not our last. Well worth the time and money!

We had a great time with Kate and Will (the guides)! We had a Sunday Funday on the Cumberland River. It was a blast and we'll be back again.
