We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it met all of our expectations. I thought the write up made it sound more difficult than it was, but for someone who is not a custom to walking a lot, that may be accurate. That said, it was a difficult walk and we both felt very comfortable walking it.

Beautiful! You would need a whole day in order to see everything. Unfortunately, we had to queue for 2.5 hours to get in with no shade. There were only 2 check in and security points for thousands of visitors. The organisation of this really needs to improve as this hindered the day. Other than this, it was a fantastic experience.

A stunning and exhilarating walk through a truly majestic place. Impossible to capture the scale and grandeur of the walk in a photograph. Reasonable level of everyday walking fitness required but no more than that. Although it is perfectly safe, the walkway does go up to 100 metres above the river. That meant that some in our party were certainly out of their comfort zone (me included) but you are never placed at any risk. The drive up into the mountains to get there is also lovely, and there are nice places to eat or have a drink once you get there. The timing of the walk seems to vary depending on the guide. Ours took a leisurely four hours. There is then a shuttle bus to take you back to your starting point via a scenic journey of about 30 minutes.
