I have taken 2 tours. Both times the guide was extremely knowledgeable and kind. Would recommend 10/10 to anyone looking to get a little more out of their visit to the springs! *Also recommend for locals, was great opportunity to ask questions and learn about the city we live in.

Our guide, Sidewinder, was exceptional. Knew the area, the history, the geography and geology. Was a gentleman and very personable.
