A full day. The host was both a great driver and guide. In spite of the rainy weather, the sights were breathtaking, and the meals wonderful. Word of caution, this includes some hikes that, while short, are rather strenuous, including climbing up and down many steps in the gorge to view the waterfalls. I'm a senior, and may have been the oldest person on the bus. With a little huffing and puffing I kept up, and it was well worth it. Only 1 complaint, we were picked up about 45 minutes late. Given the inclement weather, had us wondering if the trip had been canceled.
