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.

What an amazing experience overall would definately recommend this, the tour guide Angela was great very knowledgable only one negative needed longer at the waterfalls 2 hrs was definitaly not enough

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

A very pleasant trip. The waterfall is worth seeing, although it is quite crowded there. Guadalest is a very lovely place.

A highly recommended excursion very well organized. Perhaps the visit to the algar springs was a bit short.
