Overall an excellent experience. The tour guides seemed surprised when I showed up with my 5 year old, though on the site it said the tour was available for ages 4 and up. But they had a life vest her size and were great about including her and keeping us happy and safe. I booked 9 am but we were required to show up at 8:30. The area was beautiful and I was happy to follow a guide through caves I wouldn't have explored on my own. The provided equipment (including a dry bag for my belongings) was in good condition and everyone was friendly. Highly recommend.

Great experience! We were thinking to rent a private kayak without a guide. DO NOT! Take a tour since you will get inside to several caves that you will not go without a guide. Fabio our guide was amazing we strongly recommend this tour. THANKS FOR ALL / GRACIAS POR TODO :)

It was great. Took the tour with my gf, the staff are really funny and friendly. Caves are awesome and it is just a fun activity. Felt safe and in control the whole time. 11 out of 10. Ps: if u take the morning tour, make sure u go to the toilet before. Toilets open at 9:30 so if u need to go make sure u go before.
