We have had a perfect day despite the cold weather. Why?We were lucky to be in the company of a perfect guide named Paul. He was kind, and could tell facts about the Camanito in a very vivid way. You can tell he used to be a teacher because of the way he handled the interaction in our group combined with (fun) facts. If I was the CEO of this company I would be proud to have an employee like him. Thanks Paul for a nice experience. Kind regards, Elja de Jonge

It was wonderfull. A bit cold but there was an email warning about the temperature. We had the tour at 10.30 so it was warmer. A pity that we gad to wait for one hour before we could pass the entrance that was not a fould of the organisation

This is a fantastic day trip, great experience of the mountains, with Paul, who is a humorous, knowledgeable and passionate host, I highly recommend this trip to the Caminito.

This unique experience was worth every effort. It is so wonderful it could not fail to please.

Really enjoyable tour and Paul was an amazing guide. Transport easy, comfortable and quick.
