    The guides were really cool, very kind and the scenery was just amazing. We were a small group of 3 people, that’s why we finished the tour quite fast, the total time spent in the canyon was around 3h. I would have wished the tour was a little bit longer, especially for the price of 110€.

    From start to finish, the experience was so much fun! You will start by gearing up into a wetsuit and harness and then head off for a 30 minute hike to reach the waterfalls. Though the wetsuit is a bit heavy for the hike, it helps a lot as it protects you from the vegetation and allows you to slide on your bottom if you prefer for any steep parts. Over the course of the next few hours, it’s a mix of jumps, rappels and walking through the river. The vegetation is stunning and you feel like you are in an oasis. We always felt safe and at ease to go at our own pace and choose which way we felt most comfortable going down. They also take pictures and video of you so you can just enjoy the experience. The guides were fantastic and really nice and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend if you are up for an adventure and some thrills!
