    A great overall trip which met all expectations! Would definitely recommend! The only thing to note that this probably isn't the best for non physically active people as the hike down and up can be a little difficult for those unfit. Our guide Fabrice was fantastic ensuring we had a safe journey down and up and made our trip more enjoyable!

    The trip was good and the waterfalls were really nice. Fabrice was a good guide and really helpful. The hike was a fair bit harder than anticipated and involved going up and down narrow and steep "tracks" in the foresty areas. Need a relatively good level of fitness to do this.

    A great hike, very physical (not to be underestimated, steep slope, path among rocks and roots, on often slippery areas). Fabrice, our guide, was fantastic: considerate, encouraging, helping, always positive .. With someone else, I would have given up .. Thanks to him, I was able to finish and appreciate these fantastic wild landscapes, which cannot be left behind. easily approached ... I recommend and encourage him to continue as well. A big thank you to you Fabrice
