This trip was fun for the whole family. Easy Kayak, great scenic hike (medium difficulty) and beautiful waterfall you cool you off as a reward on this adventure. Great guide too. Thomas was extremely knowledgeable and funny too.

I went with my three kids ages 16, 14 and 9. We all loved it! Just enough mud and river crossings to make it feel like an adventure, but not too strenuous or stressful. In fact, the paddle back was relaxing as the evening hour...More

Nice adventure, organized and well equipped. We took the early bird adventure so all the afternoon can be reserved to something else.

Was very impressed with the value of this tour. From the freedom to paddle and hike at our own pace, to the fresh sandwich-fruit at destination; this was very rewarding. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great adventure at a reasonable price.
