Thanks for your honest feelings. I have requested more details in a message to you and will follow up with that guide. We put so much effort into training our guides that it is disturbing to hear when one of our guides fall short.

It was my first time whitewater rafting, so I did the Salt River half day. Beautiful scenery, the water level was high. Our guide was Flocks, who was super cool. Everyone was friendly and things went off without a hitch.
