Great trip and learnt lots!

This trip was great. The communication before was excellent. Our guide was brilliant and was very knowledgeable about plants, rocks, anything we asked! We got to go places you normally can't with just doing it your selves. Well worth it!

If you are already considering it, just book it!

My two sisters and I had an amazing time walking through the valley with our guide, Cliff. You get the feeling that this company has their heart and soul dedicated to ecotourism and conservation efforts, through enlightening the general public about these special places. The small tour groups and dedicated guides make the difference. The price is more than reasonable compared to the experience and fun memories you get out of it.
