we had two very fun, helpful tour guides (Jorge and Irena) and the canyon was beautiful! Such a unique experience that we’ve never done and never seen offered anywhere else. Would highly recommend to anyone! I will say, the bus does not have AC and water was not provided. Not a deal breaker but I definitely think that should not be mislabeled in the description. Also, the tour was listed has 4 hours but didn’t include the ~3 hr drive from Granada in that timeline— I would definitely make sure that is listed so people have a better understanding of expectations! Again, would recommend to anyone (who is fit enough) and we loved it so much! Also, so great that the tour includes digital pictures from the day — love it!

This was an awesome experience. Harry was a great guide and very communicative. The river and pools are beautiful and I enjoyed canyoning through them and jumping into the many pools. The rappelling was very straightforward and safe and Harry always made sure we were taken care of. He also provided a snack and lunch which was great! If you like waterfalls and hikes and crystal blue water then this is the tour for you!

Amazing experience! Superb guide! Patient, no rush at all, always explaining and willing to teach us everything about this activity. The Green River is a true gem of nature and the lower circuit was super funny! Our guide Harry, prepared an unforgettable picnic to crown the whole experience. 100% recommendable!!!

Excellent day of canyoning, organised and run by Harry, who looked after us every step of the way and made sure we all had a memorable and enjoyable experience. Transfer, equipment, lunch and expert tutorage provided. *****

Harry our guide was amazing. He was supportive and made sure we felt safe and good about certain parts of the experience! He is very passionate and knowledgable, very grateful we were able to experience this with him!
