  • A great selection of adventures for all ability levels. Wife and I did an entry level tour - I loved it, she hated it. Really only for those who don't mind a bit of discomfort in order to existing the adrenaline. They have experienced guides and well maintained routes and equipment. Water can be very cold so a thermal top is a good idea, especially in winter.
  • Staff were all great, but our booking got cancelled because of weather unfortunately. Imp Grotto seems to have worse weather than the other canyons, so consider this if you decide to book one.
  • A blast of trip! Catered for our desire for adventure and challenge.
  • Love this so much. Worth to try not just once!! Thank you Mike, u are such a great guide
