We had the best time! We never did canyoning before and it was such a nice experience. Everything was so nicely planned, the view is amazing and the route was fun as well. Also the guides are super friendly and helpful. I can only recommend doing this tour when you are on Madeira.

Canyoning was a lot of fun. Marcus and Renaldo ensured our safety at all times. They spoke very good and understandable English. The two didn't lack for humor either, and so it ended up being an action-packed and fun day. The tour is definitely recommended!
