Well arranged. Everything was properly confirmed by email. The bus was right on time, picked up even more people who had booked through the hotel reception and therefore we almost passed our hotel again. Got off on the way back there instead of at the pick-up location that was a 20-minute walk away. No problem. Nice tour guide. The town and the falls were nice but not spectacular. All in all had a whole day for a good price. Nice incidental; the route to both locations is beautiful through the interior, so you can see some of the surroundings.

An interesting and fun trip. I was afraid I wouldn’t manage the whole tour, since I have some illnesses, but the pace was perfect for me. The guide told us some personal experiences and made it worth all the steps

Absolutely amazing experience we done the walking tour plus football stadium and my other sons done the aquarium. We all had a fantastic day .

Great trip really enjoyed all the places we visited. Children loved it would recommend. Tour guide lovely and very helpful .

Well organised, However, does take a while to get out of benidorm and on the road due to pick ups
