What people are saying about Province of Granada

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! From the start everything was great. The tour coordinator messaged us with details and we also received a call from the guide a few days before. He assessed our group's capabilities and to decide which spot in the canyon to hike--it was exactly perfect for us! We had an amazing trip--jumps, natural slides, natural pools, and hiking down the river in general. The scenery was gorgeous and the guide was fabulous. Goyo, the guide, was very knowledgeable and professional, we never had a worry. ONCE YOU GO, YOU WILL BE HOOKED AND WANT TO GO AGAIN AND AGAIN! TIPS: Use hiking boots! Wear a thin, long sleeve sun-protection shirt and bottom (or lycra-like biking/yoga short). You wear a wetsuit the entire trip down and then you walk back up a side trail in the sun. Or bring sunscreen if you use it. Bring a change of dry clothes, hand towel, and flip-flops to change into later.

we had two very fun, helpful tour guides (Jorge and Irena) and the canyon was beautiful! Such a unique experience that we’ve never done and never seen offered anywhere else. Would highly recommend to anyone! I will say, the bus does not have AC and water was not provided. Not a deal breaker but I definitely think that should not be mislabeled in the description. Also, the tour was listed has 4 hours but didn’t include the ~3 hr drive from Granada in that timeline— I would definitely make sure that is listed so people have a better understanding of expectations! Again, would recommend to anyone (who is fit enough) and we loved it so much! Also, so great that the tour includes digital pictures from the day — love it!

This was an excellent experience and I cannot recommend it enough if you are traveling to Granada. Jorge was a fantastic guide every step of the way. He was instantly family to the group, friendly, cautious, professional, and accommodating. I had an absolute blast, you will too.

It was a fantastic trip, with lots of fun and an adventure feeling. Super punctual pickup from Jorge and very professional escort through the Río Verde. The nature is beautiful and the tour is definitely worth it! Thank you again for the great experience. Lisa&Chris

At first I was a little tired and didn't want to continue, but in the end I continued and it was worth the very nice visits, the very nice monitors, the truth is that I would repeat.
