Danae (our tour guide) was super fun, and the Kayak experience was great! We really enjoyed watching the sun set along the Ping River and the route he took us on showed us a bit of river life. My friend and I kayaked a bit too fast, and so we went a little further than normal to ensure that we were on the river for an appropriate amount of time.
