Breath taking views. Tour guide was awesome and full of knowledge. Paced with group ability. Things that would have helped before going. Take lots of water, allow more time than on website. Area controlled for helmets took forever. I would park close to exit not at hotel. It is a 1.3 Km walk from the end to hotel to pick up your car after your 3 hr hike. You are on public shuttle to get to Northside you just get to board first. So you could do yourself if you don’t want the knowledge of the guide. Which we really enjoyed.

We had booked an English speaking guide, but turned out to be a mixed group, English and Spanish speaking. As a result, a split in the group and a longer time needed for explanation, so it was not always clear what and when something was going to be told. Had the impression that much more was said in Spanish than English. Guide was open to questions. Because it was not that busy, plenty of time was taken to walk, which on the other hand ensured that several of the group walked on. We had to collect at the hotel at 9.30 am but it was already 11 am that we started the actual tour by always having to wait in places (bus, toilets, handing out helmets)

Excellent walk if you don't mind heights. stunning views with great guide. Arrive on time not before, use sun block, water, good walking foot wear if you don't want to wear a hair net bring a baseball cap/hat as you have to wear a safety helmet and for heath grounds its on top of your cap or net. try and get Sophie as your guide shes excellent and speaks English French and Spanish very well.
