Very professional team. Pick up at the hotel at the agreed time. Clear instructions before departure. The aerial tram route is good because there is no animals, but it is due to the oppressive heat. The activity of the zipline was the highlight of the activity. Interesting circuits, several stations, magnificent view but above all the skill, kindness and joie de vivre of the instructors. Always smiling and have no shortage of compliments and advice. Thank you

This was an incredible experience. The guides were great — very reassuring and professional and we felt like we were in good hands the entire time. That being said, this experience is definitely not for those with a fear of heights or who don’t trust themselves physically.

I was very impressed about everything the minute I stepped into the lobby. Very professional, nice and clean buildings and a super helpful staff. If I was to name a negative it would be the pricing in the gift shop. Extremely expensive even for a tourist giftshop.

The guides are friendly and speak both English and Spanish very well. Everyone is patient and have great attitudes. I recommend this experience to anyone who likes beautiful natural views and has an adventurous spirit.

Both experiences were worth the money. The lunch break in between was perfect. Everything flowed very well.
