Danny's best Trip Advisor review: "We went on the Tosina paddle with Danni. Had a great time. My children are 17 and 15. They said this was the best part of our trip. We live in Idaho and are outdoors a lot, but this trip was very relaxing for our family and Danni was knowledgeable about the area."
