"The tourists are going away from those shallow rivers, and not from these deep ones."

Translation:Azoktól a sekély folyóktól mennek el a turisták, nem pedig ezektől a mélyektől.

How do we know if it's -tól vs -ról vs -ból?

"Away from" doesn't sound like they're coming out of the rivers (that would be -ból ) and barring supernatural circumstances they are almost certainly not coming off the surface of the rivers (that would be -ról ). It sounds like they're just coming away from the general area of the rivers, and that should be -tól.

Actually, some flying Hungarian kindergarten teachers invented the magical floating object called "csónak" (boat). Abandoning those, the tourists could actually go away "a folyókról". :)
Sorry :)
Anyway, your comment is correct and I must say, you are doing a really excellent job explaining things these days!!

A mi világunkban teljesen igazad van.

De Duolingon, ahogy jól tudjuk már, "csónak" nem létezik. Csak hajó van. A hajó pedig sekély folyón nem jár. Ebből következik hogy a turisták, ha sekély folyókról mennek el, valami mágikus cselekményt teljesítenek.

Ugye milyen ésszerű.

(And thank you, by the way.)

Absolutely logical. They see the stranded ships, and turn away "a folyóktól" before they would get the chance to use their magical powers "a folyókról".
And, on their way, they daydream "mélyebb folyókról".

Ráadásul mondom hogy "The Flying Hungarian Kindergarten Teachers" tök jó rockegyüttes lehetne.
