Would absolutely recommend this tour. We got private transportation pickup from our hostel lobby in the morning to the canyoneering location. Water shoes and life jackets were provided to us upon arrival. The canyoneering was a blast and the views are stunning. Our guides were great all the way through and made it an overall great day and experience.

The guides were amazing - took photos for you, made sure you were safe but also were just genuinely nice and friendly, which makes all the difference. They went above and beyond to make sure we were okay and our trip ended with a lovely homemade lunch they provided! Well worth the money, top quality guide and excursion!
