I am a member of the Intel group that went rafting with your company on the South Fork of the American River. It was a great experience for our whole group, and I am sure that everyone enjoyed the experience. Your planning, logistics, and guides were all awesome and everything worked out well. My guide was Neil and he rocked. He kept us entertained, was very polite and had a positive, great attitude the entire time, and was very encouraging. Thank you for your great work! – Muamera, Intel Corp.
