We were picked up at our pick-up point shortly after 9 am and drove about an hour to the national park. From there there was a little explanation and the equipment and then off we went. The tour lasted about 2.5-3 hours and you felt very safe with all the jumps and abseiling techniques. The guides were super friendly and gave people different choices to get down. At the end we were taken to a small café where there were really tasty sandwiches and burgers for a very good price and they also supported the locals from the small village.
