I can't say enough good things about our guide Jorge and about this trip. Super well managed, gorgeous canyon, spectacular day. Jorge was very knowledgeable and safe. He put everyone at ease. I'm an experienced climber and was impressed by his safety systems and knowledge. Each rappel had it's own challenges, keeping us interested. He taught us well and also adapted to the comfort of each member of the group. He took the time to make sure everyone got great photos and taught us about the local flora and geology. We absolutely strongly recommend this trip and Jorge.

A very enjoyable trip with traditional lunch Spectacular views and the guide been amazing Excepting a bit tiring so many languages :) this bit been a bit funny but the rest of the trip really good organised and very good communication I will recommend to take the trip and enjoy a really beautiful relaxing day on the GOMERA ISLAND

It was great fun and very carefully and safely guided. My daughter of 18 just got her driver's license and found it quite exciting but afterwards a great experience. Nice to see a different side of Tenerife, beautiful.

It was just great fun. Jorge provides the orientation that is needed, but also leaves the freedom to try things out. Thumbs up!

Fabulous scenery and plenty of stops to take photos. The visitor centre is really pretty too. Lovely views of le Teide.
