We loved this hike and highly recommend it. Our guides were two Brazilian men and they were lovely and took lots of photos of each of the couples in our group (we had really nice people in our group.) They are very knowledgable and were funny too. The hike is varied (mostly water at the beginning) and beautiful. They gave us hiking sticks which were useful. You need to be at least average fitness to do this tour, wear comfortable shoes (good trainers are fine, they don’t need to be waterproof - just watch your steps). Do make sure you carry water. I advise you take a small hiking backpack with a water bladder, not a draw string backpack. There is some ‘crawling’, some climbing over and holding onto handles, thin ledges, and some steep parts. The pace was good. You need to do lots of leg stretches afterwards, or your calves will ache, if you’re not used to 6K hikes. The price was basically a bargain. I would love to do this tour again. Thanks very much to our great guides!

Great hike made even better by the diverse and very interesting group. A few sections require holding onto grips to get past rocks, also a little crawling. Wonderful views. We felt very safe with our guides. Highly recommend.

A very dynamic route and spectacular views. In addition, Julio, our guide, was very nice and attentive. I would repeat without a doubt and I will recommend it to everyone who has the opportunity to do it!

This was a fun and energizing hike with terrific views. A nice compliment to walking around the city. Julio and Marcelo are good guides.

Amazing experience. Very accessible to all in my party. Guides were knowledgeable, thoughtful and caring. Felt supported the whole time.
