Trying to narrow down which guide/company to book. I read that one provides water shoes/keens to use which would be helpful. I can't find that post now so don't remember which tour company offered this. I don't have any and prefer not to spend $50-100 for some that I may not use again. Plus, based on our itinerary, this is the only time I would need them on this trip, so may be easier not to take up the room in the suitcase. Guess I could bring some old sneakers if needed, but does it get hard hiking in these after they are wet? Plus I would then have to pack wet shoes for the flight to our next stop.
Also, do you wear socks in the beginning while hiking in (I'd get blisters if I didn't) and then change into other socks for the part where you have to take off shoes, and then put dry ones back on to hike out? I'm a bit confused.
Any tips/suggestions are appreciated.
