Hi Lindsey, Thank you so much for your feedback, we really do appreciate it. Well done for fighting your fear of heights to have an amazing adventure! I'm sorry you had a less than stellar experience with our guide, I assure you that is not the norm for our guides, as you can probably see from other reviews. We will make sure to follow up.
