If hiking is your thing, Gus can take you right to the best spots for a short walk, and guide you to a swimming hole to cool down afterwards. If you’d prefer to fish or camp, that’s not a problem – the tours can be extended overnight as Gus takes you to the best places only locals know about.

Make Your Own Adventure daytrips are run when you want to go, and include a full days (12 hour) tour. Acting as your own personal tour guide, Gus runs keeps these tours small, so you get the most out of the experience. A day tour will include a maximum of 3-4 people at a time.
