“Don't go if you have trouble climbing or walking!”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

First of all no one told us that the only way in was on a horse! The track was extremelly worn and rocky and my heart melted for the guides(one walking the entire trail per horse) and the poor horses! When we arrived at the end of the trail it was down,down,down on foot...Then up, up, up on foot coming back...well I"ve just had two new knees and this was a big mistake for me. Only the truly fit should go on this excursion!
The falls were nice but have you ever been to Niagra Falls?

“Exhausting trip, but worth it”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

We made the trip on horse and it was very nervous, there's a lot of mud.
After you reach the area where the horses can go you have to walkabout 1 km. downhill on stairs... its best to use rain boots, its very very muddy, but the guides are extremely helpful and attentive.

“Nice adventure!”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

We went by horseback through the hills and valleys to the falls. Each horse had a guide walking beside pointing out different plants and points of interest. The guides are very helpful, friendly and informative, and most times they own the horses you ride, so even though you are not obligated, I recommend tipping them for all their help. They will stop at different points and take pictures of you with your camera, help you on and off your horse and watch your stuff while you swim in the falls.
The falls themselves are very beautiful and it is worth swimming in the cool waters!
Beware though, it is quite the hike from where you get off your horse to where the falls are. Very steep on the way up, but there are stairs. Not dangerous, just tiring.
