    The jungle trek was interesting but no more than I could have done with a gps to get to the trail head and a trail map to find the waterfall. The kayaking was okay but the group was way too large and the abilities too varied. I get that they are trying to educate the guests as to the culture and history but there was way too much sitting around and not enough kayaking. I would have paid more for a smaller group and more kayaking. Depends what you are there for but I would not do this again (or at all if I had known).

    Very well organised, great communication and both Minyon falls and the kayaking were spectacular. Would definitely recommend!
