Our guide did a pretty good job, but he didn't normally guide that river. He was called in to replace another guide at the last minute. He was friendly and very helpful, but didn't know as much as I would have liked about the river, sites, etc. But that wasn't a problem. Just being outside and experiencing all the scenery is enough.Lunch was also provided at the waterfall. Drybags for all your stuff are also provided and you will need them.I highly recommend this trip.
