This was my first whitewater rafting and Via Ferrata experience. Both were a lot of fun. Brett was a fabulous rafting guide (even had us do a spin maneuver while everyone else just went straight, which was a lot of fun). Sunshine was a great via ferrata guide. Made sure we were all safe and had some good riddles along the climb.
