All three companies are very good. Usually guides have been there forever and have a deep love of that particular river. I am partial to NOC after working there for several years. NOC gets a bad rap among the guides because we were not as social, but that was mainly because we had a cable and simpson's reruns were on most nights. Nothing personal, just lazy. It was tough getting people out for moonlight runs. Nothing like boofing the "Dog" about midnight. Ahhhhh Boofing the Dog.
