We had a great time at the tour! The guide was very fun and hyped our group up before the tour, which helped us to feel more excited. He could also speak 4 different languages, so communication went smoothly. The views at the canyon were breathtaking and we were able to swim in the cold water, which was exciting. We also stopped by an underground cave and banana plantations, which wrre also beautiful. The car trip was fun and at times, quite extreme - I would suggest taking a rain coat/something warm with you to protect your ears and chest as the convertible buses drive quite fast and it gets very windy.

A great fast tour. I wouldn't say it's for children under the age of 5. It's very quick over hill and dale with the jeep. Great landscape just worth seeing.

Amazing day out! The Jeep Safari to the canyon is a lot of fun. You can get some amazing pictures there. The rafting is really good fun and the staff were amazing.

the outing is very beautiful but 0 guide in French only Russian or Turkish

Great trip and nice driver, fantastic weather and good food. 10 stars
