Great experience! The guides were super nice and competent. Since we were traveling off-season, we even rode two lines twice and had plenty of time for photos. The view was super great!

The tour was fantastic. A great experience for both children and adults. Very nice, helpful guides! Unfortunately, the zipline cannot be reached by public transport.

A very nice experience to experience once, because of the different heights, speed and distances it makes it fun! The guidance was top notch! Well worth it!

It was just a wonderful little adventure! Would do it again anytime. Good organization with great guides. Thanks for the great experience.

Super fun experience! Clear instructions and beautiful views over the island.
