Tremendous experience, but it took longer than estimated. This was partially due to stopping to take in the beautiful scenery and take pictures and partially due to the age of the older participants (ourselves!). The guide (Nick) was great - he didn't pressure anyone to pick up the pace. It was truly at a pace you are comfortable with. Due to the amount of time it took to complete the hike, lunch was delayed. This wasn't a big issue, The food seemed to have been prepared for our originally estimated arrival time and "kept warm" until we arrived. If there was a negative to the tour - this was it.

This was a great day trip from Bogota! We LOVED our tour guide Julie - she was informative and sweet and very patient with our lack of Spanish (her English was excellent). She was patient as we needed some extra time for breaks along the way and kept a reasonable pace. The waterfall was stunning and so worth the hike, but know that this is challenging! A lot of rock stairs and steep uphill climbs. Incredibly challenging and incredibly rewarding.

Excellent tour to appreciate the beauty of waterfalls and mountain landscapes just 1.5 hours from the city of Bogotá. Congratulations to Alejandro Rojas, our guide for his high level of knowledge and empathy with the group. I only suggest correcting the duration of the tour since it is not 6 hours but 8 to 9 hours actually.

Yvonne was super nice and engaging, knowledgeable and fun. Highly recommended for any Bogota tourist who is only in the country for a short time and wants to get an impression of Colombia outside of the capital.

Great experience if you want to „escape“ the city for a day and see the nature near Bogotá.
