Hillary is a great guide. My husband and I were visiting from Florida and spent nearly 3 hours on the Housatonic River canoeing with Hillary. Learned lots about the area while paddling through beautiful scenery. Loved it!

We took a kayak tour with Hillary during the solar eclipse. It was a great tour. Hillary has in-depth knowledge of the plant and animal life on the river and a friendly personality. The river is smooth with minimal current and very nice scenery.
