    Overall great tour! Guides Francisco, Caio and Fábio were all super high energy and great guides. I liked that they had one guide in front and one in the back in the water and always made sure even the last person is not left behind. Their instructions of kayaking were great compared to a different tour I went to. Provided dry bags were also a plus.

    Tour was fantastic, the caves are so interesting. Our guides Francisco, Fabio and the lady which name I forgot (sorry) were all amazing. Group was quite big but not to bad. Francisco shared lots of interesting facts about the caves and the team made sure we’re all safe. Plenty of time, didn’t feel rushed. Expect some sore muscles if you don’t work out regularly. But it’s not hard to manage.

    Overall an excellent experience. The tour guides seemed surprised when I showed up with my 5 year old, though on the site it said the tour was available for ages 4 and up. But they had a life vest her size and were great about including her and keeping us happy and safe. I booked 9 am but we were required to show up at 8:30. The area was beautiful and I was happy to follow a guide through caves I wouldn't have explored on my own. The provided equipment (including a dry bag for my belongings) was in good condition and everyone was friendly. Highly recommend.
