"It was an amazing experience: adventurous and beautiful. Just perfect. Don’t hesitate to do this kayak tour: it’s a pretty long distance that you are covering on the kayak and you see a lot of beautiful cliffs that you pass through and around and stop in a cave for a little story from the tour guide here and there. The team was very friendly, nice music on the main boat and even a chance to jump from the boat and swim around before going back if you want. "
