We have had a perfect day despite the cold weather. Why?We were lucky to be in the company of a perfect guide named Paul. He was kind, and could tell facts about the Camanito in a very vivid way. You can tell he used to be a teacher because of the way he handled the interaction in our group combined with (fun) facts. If I was the CEO of this company I would be proud to have an employee like him. Thanks Paul for a nice experience. Kind regards, Elja de Jonge

It was wonderfull. A bit cold but there was an email warning about the temperature. We had the tour at 10.30 so it was warmer. A pity that we gad to wait for one hour before we could pass the entrance that was not a fould of the organisation

This is a fantastic day trip, great experience of the mountains, with Paul, who is a humorous, knowledgeable and passionate host, I highly recommend this trip to the Caminito.

This unique experience was worth every effort. It is so wonderful it could not fail to please.
