Despite bit of rain we truly enjoyed our time. Nice combination of kayaking, trekking and scenic views. On top of this, our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable and cheerful. We recommend this activity. It changes a bit from the usual trails.

Great trip but you need to be in fair physical condition. You paddle 2 miles up river, hike a mile to the falls, spend 45 minutes or so there, then return. Our guide,Lisa, could not have been better. She took good care of everyone and...More
