Great activity that refreshes! A magnificent view all the way. And a super nice guide. Negative point for getyourguide (and not for the activity itself which is great): we booked a first time for Wednesday. We receive an email confirming the reservation and payment is cashed. On Wednesday at 1 am, we receive an email saying that the service provider has canceled the activity .... I think especially that getyourguide had sold more places than there were available ...! We therefore had to book a 2nd time for another day (and therefore pay a 2nd time).

We were picked up at our pick-up point shortly after 9 am and drove about an hour to the national park. From there there was a little explanation and the equipment and then off we went. The tour lasted about 2.5-3 hours and you felt very safe with all the jumps and abseiling techniques. The guides were super friendly and gave people different choices to get down. At the end we were taken to a small café where there were really tasty sandwiches and burgers for a very good price and they also supported the locals from the small village.
