"All of the guides on my trip were fantastic. They were very fun and enthusiastic and created an environment where everyone could enjoy themselves to the fullest extent, from the 92-year-old ex-river guide to my seven-year-old sister to my brother and me messing around in the double duckie, everyone had a blast."
Jonah Udall, (age 17)
