This was a fantastic experience and great value for money compared to the other tours. Our driver was a very professional and kind man, who was very willing to structure the trip around our wishes. He was very conscientious about slowing to see beautiful views and ensuring we felt comfortable with the windy roads. He made stops at coffee shops on our request and showed us some lovely view points along the way to the waterfall. He gave us unlimited time to explore the waterfall, which was really incredible. There were steel structures that gave us magnificent views of the valleys and mountains in the background. The car journey doesn’t take too long (2.5 hours in total) but you barely notice with all the stops. As a group of four, we enjoyed the relaxed feel of the trip - the driver answered all our questions and played lovely music on route (and I was able to listen to my own podcast with my headphones too) and there was no pressure to talk while taking in the views. I recommend!!

Bas was a great tour guide with my ch knowledge about the excursion. He was very enthusiastic when he spoke about the waterfall and National park

The tour was beautiful. The guide was able to explain well and the places visited were breathtaking. The tour is highly recommended
