  • I remain puzzled after reading the negative comments because we had a very nice afternoon of discovery in hiking water in the company of Guillaume. I think that he must be careful in high season July and August where the monitors are overworked compared to September (we went there on 22/09/17) the positives: Guillaume took time to describe activity, talk to us about the places and to assess our level following a first jump. We had a good friendly group which made the activity at the top! The negatives: we arrived 5 minutes late and it felt a little rush... As well, the day before we had to do the afternoon canyoning and the cancellation occurred the morning around 10: 00 - 10:30 (30 min before we took the road). For once, we enjoyed a lot especially since September, activities are a little hard to find and this blocked us in our day. That being said I Council this Center for activities off the summer ^^

  • Canyoning was something that always fascinated me, but it never seemed to fit. This year we spent our holiday by near the Gorges de Verdon, a place where canyoning widely offered. Through a leaflet I am at Action Aventure ended up that a wide range of has and canyoning with the leaflet I went to my two daughters. We had them Aqualand promised, but after letting them see what canyoning is, they soon decided to do this. It was a fantastic experience. We have a very accessible version chosen, without rope work, but the trip was still full of challenging, adventurous moments. The location made it breathtaking, deep in the Gorge of the Verdon, between gigantic rock faces. The guide was sublime, you find that people love what they do and the environment that gives them the chance to do that. The only minor point of criticism, but then really be really minimal, because it is quite common in France is the language. The Guide did quite well its best to us in English to French-speaking, but the explanation was always a lot longer than the English, and my children had a hard time, but the Guide did his best and more you can not desire. An absolute must and following, we take the next step.

  • As six friends from Paris as part of a long weekend, canyoning experience was for us horrible. For starters, the guide is not at all friendly. We have then to take our car to arrive at the place where the activity began. First of all, the guide told us the path to take in the forest (35 min walk), without him, because we had to join him, he went there by bike! We therefore were delivered to us even in winding trails with no way to contact him. During the activity, which was a first for us, it has absolutely not been reassuring, although instead, it completely left us delivered to us even once again without anything explain to us, leaving us stuck in a tunnel, for example. We paid 40 euros for two natural slides, because the rest was to do the recall, we couldn't do as our guide decided to skip on the formation of the reminder. To start, we have obviously to walk 45 minutes alone in a forest, on rocks with a vertical drop without a guide, he was in bike... I would absolutely not recommend action adventure! It is a danger to persons, there is no security or sympathy and no professionalism!

  • Reserved a few days before, our 2 h 30 canoeing descent has been cancelled by the time we got to make it, the guide was apparently sick! The Organization did bother to inform us a few hours before... as we did the road for nothing and we were extremely disappointed. and they have not tried to offer us another of their activity or place us at one of their colleague. Sooner if they will apologize in front of us... Great no matter what. I can only advise against this organization.
