We had a great hike of 6km with a total of 10 people plus 2 very helpful and caring guides. Part of the walk was through a canyon which had some challenges but was doable and fun. The scenery was dramatic and beautiful and very peaceful. It was a great way to see a small part of Sierra Nevada National Park. I would highly recommend this hike. Also when we were dropped off at the meeting point we had lunch in the plaza which was full of locals and the lunch special of 3 courses, a drink and bread was both tasty and very reasonably priced.

Guide was very pleasant. Very knowledgeable about the area in the canyons and mountains. Fun and a bit nervous at times navigating the stone walls above the water, but good fun and enjoyed meeting people from many countries. Perhaps a longer hike could be offered, but a great way to see an area we could not visit without a car. If you enjoy walking choose this tour,na good way to leave the crowds behind for a few hours!

In less than a 20 minute drive you are in an overwhelmingly beautiful nature. The walk is very varied: through a gorge, over mountain goat paths, along orchards, etc. I wouldn't call it 'very easy'. You sometimes have to crawl under rocks or walk over wobbly suspension bridges. So you have to be a little flexible in body and brave in mind.

This was amazing, but a little more strenuous than advertised. I doubt children could do it.

Truly a beautiful and adventurous trip. Recommended! Be well on your feet.
