What people are saying about Murcia

Nice trip, but no swirling river :), just a light current. There were also many people in a boat. But the nature was beautiful, the cave was a nice addition. Only afterwards you were kicked out of the boat and you could find the route to the car yourself….

Great day trip in the canyon! Very peaceful place with nature. The guide was cool and funny. Definitely an environment for the whole family. Thanks
