Great folks, and worked with us on a change of plans from the via ferrata to the canopy tour. Facility was clean, guides were awesome, friendly, and knowledgeable about both their course and the surrounding area. Would definitely return.

As others mentioned there was a wide rage of people on the trip I was on both in age and fitness. As long as you are in decent hiking shape this should not be very challenging for you to do. Also the pace is not fast since... More
