We had a great hike of 6km with a total of 10 people plus 2 very helpful and caring guides. Part of the walk was through a canyon which had some challenges but was doable and fun. The scenery was dramatic and beautiful and very peaceful. It was a great way to see a small part of Sierra Nevada National Park. I would highly recommend this hike. Also when we were dropped off at the meeting point we had lunch in the plaza which was full of locals and the lunch special of 3 courses, a drink and bread was both tasty and very reasonably priced.

Julio was a fantastic guide! The trail wasn't difficult at all excluding a few spots where we had to duck under the rocks. The views were amazing! Highly recommend, can't believe it's only a 20 minute drive away!

Hike was great. Not super strenuous but. It easy. The guide was nice and took a lot of wonderful & quality pictures of the group. Would highly recommend.

It was a nice tour with Marcelo and Juilo I can only recommend it. We had a lot of fun, also recommended with children.

This was amazing, but a little more strenuous than advertised. I doubt children could do it.
