The two guys are kind of charming in a hapless clueless sort of way. For planning the trip for a year, they were pretty unprepared for most everything. Your on a river, but no dry bags. No waterproof holder for your iPod? No basic knowledge of the language? They tried to make it seem like they were alone and doing all the camera work. But you could tell someone else was doing a great deal of the camera work. I like them, sorta, they are just a little on the dumb side. I have a hard time believing they did the trip all by themselves..

I loved this. Adrian and Dustin are humble, relaxed, open minded & they have a lot of grit and determination and really try to understand and be a part of the people of India and Bangladesh. If you are looking for a inside view of life in small villages along the Yamuna and Ganga and how receptive and hospitable people are, this is for you. These guys are real and they don't filter out the ugly parts. They talk about everything, from diarrhea to rashes in sensitive places. By the end you will feel like you know them. They have another adventure called rickshaw south and I can't wait to see it when it comes out. Hopefully they have many more adventures for us!

Just finished binge-watching this and loved every minute. I have been to many of the places Dustin and Adrian passed through in India and Nepal and can attest to the 100% accuracy of their depiction of the culture and people. I wouldn't recommend undertaking this type of adventure with as little research as they did - it's no secret India is HOT at that time of year and water levels low. But the result was an amazing documentary, and no doubt a good deal of spiritual reward for them. I'm glad they were able to share their journey - the good, the bad, and the ugly - AND the beautiful - with us.

I really enjoyed this documentary. I watched it over the course of a couple days. I especially liked the 2 guys and their efforts to get to know the locals. Their personalities really complimented each other which made them good travel companions. I really got a sense of what India is like and felt like I was floating down the Ganges with them.

Thought this was a great film. Loved that they started to slowly learn more about the culture of India, It would have helped them more and may have been a bit better for them if they had studied up on the religious and cultural traditions before setting out. While understand this was journey of discovery it would have given the guys a bit more ground to stand on with the all the beautiful people they encountered and perhaps would have given some other experiences a richer meaning. Hope they appreciated the Puja ceremony preformed for them as they started their journey. I am sure lord Shiva and Shakti were watching over them due to this sacred Puja done on their behalf. Great job guys!!! The Amazon river next ?

Really liked the participants; they had depth which became more noticeable as it progressed. Began with annoyingly unprepared start (How could they be so dumb as to not even have plastic to put thier electronics in on a raft trip?) but had a refreshing honesty to it.
