We were five adults and five kids (from 10 to 16 years old), and we all had a great time! The guides were brilliant, and gave us all the help we needed. Highly recommended! 😄 👍

With 6 friends (age 23) we visited this Canyoning and it was a succes! Replacing the city centre of Nice for this beautiful mountain river was a great trip with a very friendly and English speaking guide.
