Wonderful day out, amazing clear water. Beautiful place. Vice was wonderful, lovely friendly chap but the initial walk to the bus was quite fast paced and across town, I felt the guide could have been skuggtky more considerate that all were following and am glad we didn't have anyone who was a slow walker with us, difficult enough with 3 kids. Aside from that I couldn't fault the day or our guide.

The tour of the site is short, but very beautiful and impressive with its number of small waterfalls, then the end with this large waterfall. We were expecting a sandy beach, however it was made up of small pebbles that were not really pleasant! The tasting of olive oil is essential to this excursion. It is perfectly compatible with wine tasting!

The tour is only recommended! Everything went according to plan, nice guide and price is right too. You are only with the group during the trip, you can use the time in the national park independently

Booked this very last minute the day before and had no issues at all getting on which was great. Plenty time left to our own devices and picked up in easy locations! Would highly recommend.

Tour was magnificient. guide was relaxed, funny and gave us enough free time for everthing. Olive Oil tasting was perfect. There was enough food we didn't even had to go to get lunch.
