Extraordinary trip with Megan
Brian_C, Aug 2023
Finding Far Flung was a highlight of a trip through New Mexico. We could not have asked a better, more expeirenced guide to lead us down the river than Megan. She was thorough, helpful, and most of all very patient with a couple who hadn't been on a river in quite some time. Megan took extra time to point out pieces of interest. She also made sure our safety was important. We'll attack the racecourse the next time we head to Taos.
Fun time!

We had a great time on this float. Billy was a great guide and was most entertaining. Would have loved for the trip to be a little longer.
Very Relaxing

We loved Sydney! She was so informative, fun and patient! We were disappointed that the photographer never showed up!

Our guide Rob. He was so friendly; insightful, did the major brunt of the paddling, and showed us the wonders of the Rio Grande ! Thank you Rob !!
