We took the 7:45am tour, which was fantastic. We were able to experience the morning colors as they illuminated the scenery. Our guide, Thomas, was outstanding. He provided all sorts of interesting facts about the area. I highly recommend!

Matt was our guide and he was excellent. The weather was perfect. The journey just to get to the waterfall was our favorite part! Will highly recommend this tour to friends and family, and hopefully do it again ourselves in the future!
