    Everything was easy and smooth.

    Absolutely fantastic experience I would recommend to all my friends. Wonderful experienced guides, I especially liked the female guide that was completing training in the raft! What great fun! Super scary waterfall. I'd love to do it again some day. No where near as cold as I thought it would be either. Even in the middle of winter!
