It was a good trip, perfect time management, skip the line entrance to the tourist attractions, and we were able to see and discover so many places in one day, which would be impossible to do alone. The views are stunning. And the whole organizing company employees were friendly and easy going, arising questions were solved immediately and the whole tour was organized on a high professional level

We found Edward knowledgeable engaging and a joy to be with. Couple it with the company we had made for a memorable day, thoroughly enjoyed. A level of fitness is required but not essential (us four made it), we’re just jo average. If you have a knee or leg problems forget it too many steps.

A well guided tour from the moment I was collected from my hotel until I was dropped back at the hotel. Excellent value with every need included. The Sandstone mountains were amazing and the Czech Falcons nest and gorge well worth the hike up hill. Lunch had an extensive menu and was most enjoyable. I would point out that you need to be fairly fit as there was a 2 Km uphill walk to the Falcons nest and my phone recorded the equivalent of 50 flights of stairs. But the stone arch and view at the top made the effort worth while.
