Really can't say enough good things about John and his guiding. Yes, he was a skillful experienced (15 years on the river?) guide who got us safely down the river. But it was the whole experience that was magical/special. Other tours take (we heard) 4 hours to go the route we did -- John gave us a full 6 hours, extremely patient and leisurely. He taught my daughter and niece how to skip rocks (he's quite good at it), he found multiple spots with fresh berries and helped us pick them. He found a great jumping rock that my daughter & I used happily, but when it was too high for my niece, he knew of a shorter rock, then patiently stood holding her hand for a good 10 minutes until she got the courage to jump off of it. Good lunch at a great spot that he has to himself. When we showed interest in history, he stopped at a totally random spot and walked us 15 feet to a channel that gold-rush-era miners had dynamited to redirect the river -- super cool. And he was a great conversationalist throughout. Fab day.
