We had a wonderful time! The scenery is beautiful--we loved the flowers floating in the river. The hike and kayaking trip were invigorating but doable--even for active senior citizens. Our guide, Levi, was super--very knowledgeable of the area, history and traditions of the people. The waterfall was amazing. We have done this activity before and would happily do it again.

My husband and I had a blast on this trip! Nathan was a great tour guide and taught us a lot about the local flora and fauna on the way. We did this early in our trip and were able to see many of the plants we learned about in later hikes. Swimming in the waterfall at the end was a huge highlight!
