The pick up from the hotel went well. The guides were experienced and very nice. The canyoning itself was a lot of fun and thanks to the wetsuits it wasn't cold at all (despite October). With a group size of 9 people there was some waiting time until everyone had overcome an obstacle, but you can enjoy the landscape wonderfully during this time; or the fact that you are sitting in the middle of a stream;) Overall, a very recommendable experience

Vito and Fabio were great. As a family we all enjoyed the activity that was well executed by very professional guides and instructors. I felt safe in their hands at all times, given that I have a bad vertigo problem and yet they couched me through the whole activity making me deal with the fear of heights - because of them I am now looking forward to further activities of this nature! Thanks both!

Phil and Diego were great fun and enthusiastic and the excursion is an excellent introduction to real canyoning with 5 waterfall cliffs to traverse with ropes on the route. There is a separate €5 charge per person to rent appropriate footwear. You will actually be canyoning for about 2 hours, overall door to door experience time about 5 hours.

The place was amazing and the guides really nice. They were always options if you don’t want to jump. Great morning!

Sympathetic and professional guides. We felt in good hands at all times. Any time.
