Excellent experience! Family business, close to its customers, far from tourist factories. Possibility of camping nearby. Drinks offered on return around a table, very friendly. French guide!! A plus for us who have an 8 year old little girl. Thank you Florent for taking such good care of us and our little one! A big thank you also to the manager and the whole team for agreeing to move our activity to the next day because we had made a mistake in the dates. Canyoning is done in transparent water, with a succession of jumps and slides. Accessible to all. Possibility of taking a path to circumvent if necessary. In summary, a great time! Thanks!

Me and my partner found this kayaking trip randomly in Google. Everything went great and was totally worth it! We went early morning (8.15) and there were only 4 of us in the group, which was great. We gathered up in the meeting point near the center of the city. We were provided safety equipment and then we were transported to the riverside. The weather was good and sunny (even though the forecast predicted rain and clouds only), our guide was supercool and nature amazing (we saw two deers!). The guide advised us well, motivated, made some jokes and was generally very helpful.

It started messy. According to the organization on site we had booked a different tour than the one we had actually done. Canoeing instead of kayaking. After some puzzling we solved the problem and so we were able to go kayaking with guide Haider to the Soca river. We were lucky, only the two of us! Haider was a very good guide. He clearly had a lot of experience, gave clear explanations. Spoke English well. Kayaking at different levels of difficulty. Experience not to forget!

Great outdoor experience with fun and action guaranteed

We can really recommend this activity. I was a little bit afraid of too much „dry run“ and how to hold the paddle etc... but it really was a helpful introduction before we started paddling! We were just two people with our guide and he did a very individual program with us. Whenever we wanted tough waves we got it. Perfect customer orientation! Furthermore we did some cliff jumping and swimming.

The tour was a lot of fun. We would totally recommend it! A lot of slides and jumps and everybody could do what he/she wanted to do, no need to be scared. The Canyon was really beautiful and not crowded in the morning. Must do if you are looking for some action :)
