Thanks!! was very interesting & informative. Lake and 2 branches of the river. Was really worth it. Could have been longer but was full of info.
ponchos when it rains. They refused several requests! Said it wasn’t REALLY raining. How cheap! We were wet and cold. Excellent tour guide. Multi-talented narrator who finished with blues harmonica. Exquisite.
