We had a great trip with Frank. He is very knowledgeable about the area and about the outdoors in general. The trip was a mixture of relaxing and more adventurous parts of the Truckee river.

An all around great experience. We are traveling with a 15 year old and a 5 year old. Both were entertained and the 5 year old was patiently humored at every turn. Our guide, Mattie (Matthew), was experienced, informative, and all around amazing. Highly recommended!!
