Great trip. A place worth visiting. Wonderful views and an unforgettable meeting with dolphins. The joy of the meeting is the same for adults and children, something amazing. The guide and on-site care is exceptionally kind and helpful. Two important things to the organizer are: lack of full information about the course of the trip before buying it. It is worth emphasizing at this point that the attractions on site are not mutually exclusive and you can both meet dolphins and visit the Upper Rock Reserve. It is a pity that the organizer did not provide details with the plan of the visit to the site, it would make it easier to plan sightseeing and free time. If someone has chosen the option of sightseeing on their own, this does not preclude a change of decision, there is a large offer of guided tours on site at very favorable prices. 5 hours provided for on site is very little time to see even the most important attractions.

Very good experience. The guide did not talk to the whole group for much of the tour however me and my partner weren’t too far away from the guide and so we would periodically ask her questions and she was more than helpful. She was also more than willing to take photos. There also some very good food places near the end of the walk

We didn’t know anything about the area so this bus was ideal. Driver was so friendly and helpful. Sat at the back upstairs in the open air with the wind blowing…..loved it.

Very friendly, professional coach transfer with helpful tips and information told along the way.

It was really fantastic journey in the mountains . It is very exciting experience
