What people are saying about Granada

We stayed in Spain for two weeks and this was honestly the best day of our vacation! Pedro, the guide, was absolutely fantastic. He was so considerate and patient, which made one feel super safe but still there was lots of adventurous stuff to do. Yet there were always options for people who didn’t want to cliff jump or slide down the rocks, so you didn’t have to quit the whole tour if you didn’t want to do an activity. Pedro always encouraged everyone to try the activities but was never pushy. The canyon itself is also astoundingly beautiful. Very recommendable!

At first I was a little tired and didn't want to continue, but in the end I continued and it was worth the very nice visits, the very nice monitors, the truth is that I would repeat.

Very nice trip, with an amazing view of the reefs and a relaxing time at the beach!

Huge fun experience! Super beautiful environment… it really stunned me.

Excellent guide, excellent experience, great adventure!
