very nice experience! Not very sporty and stable ground (suspension bridge during a course) A few steps, you have to be in relatively good condition for the activity (a few steps up or down sometimes very narrow) The place is incredible! We separate to walk at our own pace which is great. The downside is that we don't have the explanations of the guide who brings up the rear.

My experience with Alex, the guide was just exceptional he was very informative and helpful throughout the hike.. I was doing a solo trip and his cordial nature made it all the more fun.. I had interactions with Frans, who was overseeing the Spanish speaking group, but he was also very friendly and made me feel very welcome

Great guided trip to Caminito. Louis and Ian who were our guides were entertaining and knowledgeable. Our coach driver drove brilliantly as well. Coach was clean and comfort. Highly recommended.

Good information before the trip and the bus arrived on time. The guide was both funny and skilled and everything worked perfectly. A fantastic experience.

Great experience, everything is very well organised and the guides are very prepared. I absolutely recommend.
