This was a wonderful tour. Jen was great with communication the day before, answering any questions, and Val was a fantastic tour guide, patient, enthusiastic, and knowledgable. The tour is actual more hiking than paddling, fyi, but the hike to the waterfall is really beautiful. The waterfall itself is spectacular and well worth the trip. We had a great time. I would say the activity level is moderate, between the paddling and the hiking, which included climbing over some rocks. Highly highly recommend!

Val was very knowledgeable of the area. We all felt safe and well taken care of. He knew lots of history of the area and the plants and flowers. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend.
