As a super keen outdoor adventurer and instructor I was incredibly impressed with the trip from a to z. The guides had the perfect balance of professionalism and fun, catering for everyone's unique background comfort zones and demonstrating impeccable safety practises. Not only an amazing canyon trip, the guides weaved in interesting environmental snippets allowing an even deeper experience.

This was a surprise for my husbands birthday. He didnt know until we got to the meeting point what we were doing. We had the most amazing day out :-) Our guide Lee was awesome had us jumping off cliffs ,sliding down rocks and abseiling. His knowledge of the area was outstanding,we had a Japanese tourist with us with very little English. Lee had spent some time in Japan and was able to explain everything to him. This made for an amazing very unforgetable day with our wishing the day wouldn't finish even though our energy eas gone. Would do again and would encourage others to do :-) Have a look on their web site or Facebook page.

Just the two of us on a last minute booking and the +1 was a little nervous!
The guide (Toine) was great and doubled as a nature and history guide.
We both really enjoyed. Well paced, individualised, super fun and always felt totally safe whilst at the same time exploring some places that felt a bit wild and unexplored.
Definatley recommend.
