The tour was well planned, the two guides gave us great support. The group of 8 people was OK, with more people it will certainly be a bit of a stretch. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't ideal, so that despite the neoprene suits, you froze a bit while waiting on the tour. I would have expected a little more water. But abseiling down the falls was exciting. At the end of the tour before the ascent (about 40 minutes) there was an energy drink and a muesli bar as a refreshment. I did canyoning for the first time and I wanted to do more tours like this. Because of the little water I give it 4 stars, otherwise I can definitely recommend the tour!

There were three of us in a group of 8 accompanied by Pablo and Manu and it was really great. Of course it's exhausting to get up the mountain, but consideration was given very attentively with relaxed conversation and everyone's motivation was kept high. The descent through the canyon was a great, varied and thrilling experience. You always had the choice of how much thrill you wanted to give yourself and thanks to the very calm, understandable instruction we felt very safe right up to the end (16m steep wall abseiling). A big thank you to the great team, continued success for future tours. All the best Jochen and Margret

An absolute must for all those who want to do something extraordinary while on vacation. Sporting affinity should definitely be present. We had a great guide who gave us some insight into the history of the island. Highly Recommended
