We stayed in Spain for two weeks and this was honestly the best day of our vacation! Pedro, the guide, was absolutely fantastic. He was so considerate and patient, which made one feel super safe but still there was lots of adventurous stuff to do. Yet there were always options for people who didn’t want to cliff jump or slide down the rocks, so you didn’t have to quit the whole tour if you didn’t want to do an activity. Pedro always encouraged everyone to try the activities but was never pushy. The canyon itself is also astoundingly beautiful. Very recommendable!

Fantastic experience with an adrenaline rush that everyone can handle!

Besides that the activity was absolutely worth the money, we also had a very nice group and the most amazing guides! Pepe and manolo, fantastic guys! Two with a lot of guts, but also all the patience for everyone in the group. They take the time for you, even if you find it exciting. A lot of humor this day! Where it comes out, we will go again next year!

Amazing day out enjoyed by all ages and we all felt very safe

Great day spent with the family including young kids. Pepe and Manolo were fabulous guides who kept us all informed and we felt we were in safe hands at all times. Highly recommend the activity and the company.

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.

Huge fun experience! Super beautiful environment… it really stunned me.
