It was unforgettable!

Excellent couple day with our guide, our small group and especially our driver. In the morning it's a water battle. You will be drenched for sure. Protect your fragile belongings in a plastic bag just in case. Lunch was bulgur, salad, pate and barbecued chicken breast. Followed by a dip at the waterfalls and Jesus Beach. Many thanks to the team.

It was fantastic. The only disappointment was the waterfall as it wasn’t very big. But from start to end the drivers where excellent and this was well worth seeing and doing. Although be prepared to get not only wet but dirty. Would certainly do again.
