Alex was our guide. He was awesome! It was a lazy float down the river. We stopped for water and snacks halfway through the 2 hr float. You can man your own float/kayak/inner tube if you so desire.

They shuttle you back from your trip down the river, but I don't believe they'll come to pick you up at home or your hotel.
