It was an amazing experience, with adrenalin. I loved this activity. The picking up was accurate. The guides were very cool, funny, friendly and informative. We felt fresh and full of energy in the end. The jumps were scary but the guides motivated and encouraged us. The whole trip was fantastic.

We were at the waterfalls today and are thrilled. The tour guides were punctual and reliable. On the way to the waterfalls there was a little coffee tasting and a trip to a souvenir shop. Although only 7 waterfalls can currently be visited, the thrill is still worth the tour!

It was a wonderful experience, and had the worth of the price. The whole tour was perfectly organized, our guide Eusebio was very friendly and helpful. The lunch was delicious. Thanks for this great day.
