Spectacular

The adventure begins by climbing in the 4x4 with Miguel (our Guide), a rally driver! Then the contact with nature, the waterfall jump in the waterfalls and the kindness of Miguel who answered all our questions in Spanish despite being the tour in English, was the icing on the cake. I would definitely repeat.

the activity is perfect

The organization was extraordinary: We were picked up on time, the guide was super friendly all day and made us feel very welcome with an extra approach to children (10 & 14). Breaks in time, detailed explanations, in perfect English. The activities were of adequate length and effort. The delicious meal.

Excellent tour and guide!

It’s been a great tour that combined beautiful viewpoints and scenery, paddle boarding & kayak on a gorgeous lake, enjoying time in a beautiful waterfall. The tour guide Miguel was excellent, he catered for all of our needs and went above and beyond to ensure we were safe and well looked after. It’s a great tour to choose for couples as you enjoy some romantic time and great landscapes, but it’s also great if you go with friends as the activities are quite team building orientated and lots of fun. We’d use this agency again and hope to meet Miguel on future tours!
