Very good experience, the bus picked us up as arranged. Very helpful and approachable guide, Would definitely recommend you take swimming shoes as rocks are painful when in the waterfalls.

Nothing to say, entry without going through the queue at the checkout. Huge water park. Locker, paid deckchair but hey we have a good day. The kids loved it. Thanks

Excellent organization of this superb day in the mountains and the Spanish waterfalls. Special mention to our driver Manolo and our guide Kathy

Amazing experience. Excellent price for tickets considering you get three hours of entertainment which is a very high standard.

Friendly guide and visited parts of the town we wouldn't have normally seen. Great way to see somewhere.
