The river was really exciting and energy packed, but it was hard to enjoy the experience between all the directions we were asked to follow, our guide who was a bit gruff and poked fun at people, and the fact that we had to completely duck down into the boat with our heads down during bigger rapids. I understand that the directions and ducking down were all for our safety, but it meant that I focused more on making sure I did all the complicated steps instead of taking in the experience. And when we ducked down and bent our heads, we really couldn't see anything--it just felt like we were in some sort of washing machine. I've been on other guided raft trips with Class V rapids and had not experienced such a thing before. It was still a fun day, but the vibe from the guide didn't make me feel comfortable or as if it was a fun time. I was always a little on edge that I was doing something wrong and he'd point it out. I don't think I'd go with this company again as a result.
