Vincent and Emmanuel were fantastic guides, very knowledgeable about all the plants, the falls, their origin and were very helpful with some of the more challenging parts of the hike. The hike itself was fantastic, in amongst the indigenous trees and plants on paths which would’ve been difficult to find without them. The falls were beautiful, we went from lower to upper falls, staying at the almost last one for a well earned swim in the huge pool, with or without rock jumping! You need to be reasonably fit to manage the climbs at times steep and narrow but well worth it.

Our guide Lucas was very professional and kind, the waterfalls are magnificent More difficult than what is mentioned, you have to cling almost all the way to trees and stones so much it climbs or descends and it slides a lot too bad not to mention it and I found that 3 hours to do it was a bit too short, little time to admire the waterfalls or swim

A nice trip in beautiful surroundings. The guide Jeremie was very nice and professional. The paths were steep and in places very slippery. You should be fit to take part in the trip, we really had to climb and pull ourselves up using branches and vines in some places. Wish we have had longer stops at the various places. Nature's own "fish spa" was an experience! We also liked the fact that the guide told us a little about the local flora and fauna. We highly recommend this trip!
