This was a nice trip but the guide tended to stop frequently on the return hike back to the kayaks. We had a few slower folks in the group so it might be nice if they had two guides so one could hang back for slower participants and the other could lead on with faster hikers. It took us 7... More

My husband and I loved our trip to secret falls. We picked a morning trip, which left on time and got back on time. The kayaking was lovely - smooth water, quiet river, and not too long. The hike was muddy due to rain the night before - but the staff reminded us several times during booking that this would... More

Our guide was enthusiastic and informative, but the experience was grossly over-rated and extremely dangerous. The kayak part was fine, but it was the trek to falls that set the tone for the entire event It had rained heavily the day before our scheduled tour, and the company correctly canceled all tours and rescheduled ours. The guide said the "walk"... More

Our family of 5 (older teens and young adults) loved the day trip to the falls. We enjoyed kayaking, the beautiful river, the easy hike (more like a nature walk so if you're into a difficult hike this isn't it) and lovely falls. Lunch was surprisingly good, too! All in all i highly recommend this tour company and activity. A... More
