A great overall trip which met all expectations! Would definitely recommend! The only thing to note that this probably isn't the best for non physically active people as the hike down and up can be a little difficult for those unfit. Our guide Fabrice was fantastic ensuring we had a safe journey down and up and made our trip more enjoyable!

The hike is challenging, but the view at the end is breathtaking! We were a sporty group and finished after 2 hours. Bathing at the foot of a waterfall was very refreshing! However, the tour is not recommended for small children. The hiking is more climbing and sometimes quite steep!

A super nice tour, about 2.5 hours and just right if you want to get used to hiking first. It's quite steep downhill at first and the ground was pretty slippery, but our guide Jeremie showed us how to hold on to branches and roots and make safe progress. The different stations of the falls were amazing, unbelievably beautiful. It went well uphill and downhill and was really fun. There was plenty to discover, including a hidden waterfall and a natural fish spa pool. There was also an opportunity to swim. Jeremie was a super guide who is very laid back and really knowledgeable. He told us many exciting things and totally adjusted to our pace. Definitely do!
