Well designed experience for canyoning, properly managed with mostly rappelling, some slides and jumps. The two guides, Joao and Fabio, was professional aswell as two friendly and nice guys. Zero complaints about anything on this experience. They even had the courtesy of providing plenty of photos from the whole thing and it was all shared quickly after we got dropped off. If you're looking for a great time, this is it. Thinking about it? Do it, you're not going to regret going with these guys.

The canyoning tour was breathtakingly beautiful! This is how you really experience the nature of Madeira in its original form. The transfer from the hotel was easy and everything was clarified in a timely and friendly manner over the phone! The guides were super friendly and motivated everyone wonderfully! There was no pressure behind it either, but a pleasant atmosphere in which you could decide for yourself which jumps you wanted to make and which not. Absolute recommendation!
