This was a brilliant day full day out seeing some lovely Spanish culture!!! Very picturesque… we did it our last day and it was perfect for finishing off a brilliant holiday. We will be going again with this company. Fantastic/easy to book through website and even sent email day before to remind you of times and even what to take with you even down to the weather conditions expected!!! Brilliant!!!!!

A really lovely day out, well organised and professional. Just a little disappointed the falls are not all accessible due to the damaging heavy rains earlier in the year. But overall a good value for money day excursion.

Guadelest view from the castle breathtaking. The falls are impressive. Couldn't walk because she was too wild due to weather conditions. Recommended.

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