A very informative and relaxing excursion with beautiful scenery. Out guide Antonio was really helpful and informative. I would recommend wearing water shoes as your feet will get wet in the raft boat. A great excursion and would recommend.

Excellent tour with a very engaged & competent guide who told us about all the trees, floweres & animals during the drafting to the caves where the Neanderthals used to live. I can highly recommend this tour.
