and it was beyond anything I could have asked for!! We were lucky to have great weather and warm waters and I would put everything I have on our experienced guide, Matt. Strong, intuitive and innately humorous, he put us all at ease while making sure we were always safe working together in tandem.

The instructions starting out were communicated well and we were drilled with the basics to get an idea before we started out. What was special about ARO was the way they always had a safety spotter ahead of us and made sure being safe was paramount while still having a great time. All the guides were very approachable. We even had a small snack break (insanely yummy rolls, water and juice) mid way through the ride and free swim time in the river for those interested. At the end of the trip, we were treated to delicious food and came out with great pictures too!!

The whole trip was professional, neatly planned and clean. I would definitely suggest doing a trip with these guys (especially with Matt. He's awesome!) We will definitely be back!

Thank you guys, once again!
