Nice short cave tour with a super friendly guide We did the tour in pairs and were accompanied by two guides. At the beginning we were roped down into a cave and then explored the inside. Danger; duck your head! The cave is partly very narrow. But that made the whole thing even more exciting and adventurous. The guides lived nearby themselves and were able to tell us many interesting facts about the area. It was really fun and we would definitely book it again!

This was my first time rock climbing. Luis was really patient snd understanding. I managed to do big climbs that I never thought possible. Luis was amazing and really knowledgeable. 10/10 I recommend him

We loved our rock climbing adventure with our guides! The routes were awesome and climbing on limestone set against the sea was a great experience! Thank you so much for the fun day!
