Well designed experience for canyoning, properly managed with mostly rappelling, some slides and jumps. The two guides, Joao and Fabio, was professional aswell as two friendly and nice guys. Zero complaints about anything on this experience. They even had the courtesy of providing plenty of photos from the whole thing and it was all shared quickly after we got dropped off. If you're looking for a great time, this is it. Thinking about it? Do it, you're not going to regret going with these guys.

Wir wurden wie vereinbart pünktlich am Treffpunkt im Hafen von Funchal abgeholt und von unserem Guide Fabio zum Startpunkt unseres Canyoning-Abenteuers gefahren. Er hat für uns eine super Route in den Bergen von Madeira herausgesucht und hat mit seiner Erfahrung Sicherheit ausgestrahlt. Auf jeden Fall werden wir wieder mit BeLocal unseren nächsten Ausflug machen.

Die Canyoning-Tour war atemberaubend schön! So erlebt man die Natur Madeiras wirklich noch in ihrem Ursprung. Der Transfer vom Hotel war problemlos und alles rechtzeitig und freundlich per Telefon geklärt! Die Guides waren super freundlich und haben alle wunderbar motiviert! Dabei war auch kein Druck dahinter, sondern eine angenehme Atmosphäre, in der man selbst entscheiden konnte, welche Sprünge man machen möchte und welche nicht. Absolute Empfehlung!
