Great trip with the guide IAN, who is a total nature person and mountaineer. He was so sweet and present with super good tips for further destinations. The trip is nice and not as nerve-wracking as otherwise described. But a very beautiful trip. The guide is worth it in terms of the stories and I am otherwise not into guided tourist trips. REMEMBER TO BOOK WELL IN TIME.

The hike above the canyon is impressive. Installations are safe and easy. The guided tour teaches us the history of this installation. As you walk in line during the hike, it is better to choose an audio tour, otherwise you can't hear the guide at the front. Our guide Ian gave us lots of information about the history, environment, geology etc. Between the beginning and the end of the course there is a long walk, particularly exhausting at the end. Using our vehicle, we had read that it was better to park on the south side and appreciated this information. Driving the last few miles to get to the site is also an experience in itself.

The route is very interesting and beautiful throughout the gorge The guide is very friendly and professional At the end of the walkways, the route is on dirt with many loose stones going down a bit dangerous I did not like having to look for a bus to get to the stop I think I should be part of the organization even paying a little more would be more comfortable
