Our day started out with the bus trip to the bottom of the canyon. Our bus driver was very nice and told us some history about different areas on the way down to the bottom. She explained what was ahead of us for the day and what we needed to do when we got to the bottom. Getting fitted for the life jackets was easy and we were given group #'s. Our group was group 1 with a guide named Gary who was a great guide and really a joy to spend the day with. The stop at the waterfall was very pretty and I didn't feel rushed while there at all like some of the prior reviews had stated. The rapids were fun, but I was a little disappointed that in all I think we only went through about 3 rapids, I was expecting more. After lunch was all smooth water and it was really hot outside so even though the water was only 45 degrees, in really hot water it is very refreshing. It did get very windy towards the end of the trip and there was question if the helicopter would be able to pick us up, but it worked out that they were able to. When we got to the landing pad for the helicopter it was very unorganized and nobody seemed to know what to do or when they were supposed to get on the helicopter. The ride in the helicopter was very short, but for me who does not like flying to begin with, I found it to be pretty scary. However, in total the trip was a lot of fun and I would recommend doing it. The only negative about the trip was the long trip back to the hotel (2 hours in an old school bus on dirt roads) and the few rapids that you go through. However, the rapids are perfect for first timers.
