Signed up for the full-day canyoning and thermal bath tour but, through no fault of the great guides, the half-day would have been great. I have really poor circulation (which I knew going in) and once I was out of the water for a yummy lunch, I was done. Fortunately the other person doing the full-day was too and we sped to the thermal baths! No complaints other than I wish I had been able to go coaststeering with this company too (i was traveling solo and the outfit needs a minimum of 2 people to run.)
This was without a doubt one of our best experiences in the Azores. Our two guides, Bruno and Jiao were both incredibly knowledgable about canyoning and there was never a moment where I felt unsafe. Their sense of humor provided just enough levity to make it an amazing day. Whether it was rappelling down waterfalls, climbing over boulders or leaping off of high rockfaces into mountain pools, we always felt safe and supported and comfortable leaning into our discomfort. We had all the comfort and safety gear we needed to have a wonderful, and safe experience, such as wetsuits, footwear, and harnesses.
By rappelling down the waterfalls and walking through the stream beds, we were also able to see a part of a beautiful natural preserve that otherwise was quite remote and hard to access. What a fantastic way to see the natural beauty of the Azores. Thanks for the fantastic day!
The sites were beautiful! We had a wonderful guide. The experience overall was great. There was a lot more cliff jumping then repelling, so if you aren’t in to jumping into the water from high places this activity might not be for you. We repelled down two waterfalls, jumped in 3-4 times and slide down a natural slide. Overall we had a very pleasant experience.
Paulo was so much fun. He was very attentive and made sure everyone was going at their own pace. He also gave assistance towards my girlfriend cause she wasn't a good swimmer. Awesome experience with the tour guide and also our group of people.
Leuke groep, leuke enthousiaste gidsen met op zijn een grapje onderweg. Onze zoon van 10 vond het helemaal geweldig en sprong zo van de watervallen af die toch wel een meter of 7 hoog waren. Fantastische ervaring!!
