Absolutely fantastic, guides were great and loads of fun. Pictures were well worth buying and not extortionate as with some other places. Highlight of our 2 month trip!

It was such a unique adventure experience, I am not sure you can do this anywhere else. The guides were very safe, informative and funny.
