A unique activity in a beautiful setting. Ken was knowledgeable and made sure we were all comfortable with what we were doing. The river-bug was a fun way to get across the gorge. This is something I would be interested in doing again.

This was so beautiful. A bit of a thrill. Will for sure be telling people to do this. Everyone should at least try this out. You should be able bodied to attempt this.

A great history lesson on a lovely tour. Felt very victorian. It made a beautiful Father's Day that my dad really appreciated! Was super fun and unique. I was told you're also allowed to bring your dog, that's rare :)
