This tour was incredible! The views were breathtaking, Jan does an incredible job of showing the sites and also giving time to explore each location, it was extremely well organized and a once in a lifetime experience. I would recommend bringing comfortable shoes as there’s a fair amount of walking, plenty of water and a relaxed attitude. We were lucky enough to have a fun group and ended up all having a great time together. The perfect plan if you want to have an active day in nature and escape the buzz of the city!

I would definitely highly recommend this day trip! Really enjoyed the day with Jan earlier this week. We had a small group of 4 in total which was good and he picked us up early to miss the crowds. We enjoyed the conversations during the journey and liked the itinerary with options whether we wanted to walk more or less. Thank you!

The trip was fantastic!!! Joseph and Paul are very friendly, kind, knowledgeble and fun people and I enjoyed every single minute of it. We visited gorgeous sites and walked around the river in the early spring in April. Can not recommend the trip more! Plus the snacks are enless :)

Jan was a fun and informative guide. The sites we visited were breathtaking! The hikes were moderately strenuous, but the day was well-paced with several breaks for drinks and lunch. Highly recommend this tour to see the natural beauty of the area.

Jan was a really good host and the tour was really impressive with a really good views yo the park
