Was super fun! It was our first time canyoning so I wasn't very confident and a bit scared, but Marta and Ronaldo were awesome guides and helped me along every step of the way, kept up the energy and made sure we both felt safe. We had a great time going down beautiful waterfalls and jumping into pools, and would highly recommend going on this adventure.

It was just as described, simply eventful. I'm very happy that I was able to experience this, even if I don't speak English well (unfortunately). You should be a bit sporty or very young otherwise it will be exhausting. I'm 60 years old and I'm glad I was able to experience it.

An experience that everyone should have. Not only is it a lot of fun, the impressions and the experience are unique. Wonderful nature. The guides were super nice, explained everything very precisely, ensured absolute safety and made a lot of fun. You felt safe. We will definitely do something like this again.
