Green Bean was our guide and was both informative and educational.The additional rafts (2) in the group were also enjoying their guides and afterward on the banks we all took photos with our respective guides and shots of the guides together.Would highly recommend.

Sorry to give a low review but this really was a lame excursion. The guides that worked there were in bad need of a bath and not concerned if we had a good time or not. Seemed like a bunch of misfits, sorry! Half way...More

Had a great float down the Talkeetna River with our awesome guide Ryan Bouma (aka Greenbean), pictured. Beautiful, serene, and peaceful. Enjoyed hearing the wind in the trees and the rippling river water while inhaling the fresh Alaskan air. (Much preferred over a noisy boat...More

Do the seats on the rafts have backs? I'm concerned that after several hours sitting on the raft that my back will really be hurting. Also, we're considering bringing along our mother, who is 83 years old.
