Super schöner Trip
, Feb 2020
Es war ein unfassbar schöner Trip. Würde immer empfehlen erst die Höhle zu besuchen und dann die Kajakfahrt zu machen , also die Kombination zu buchen. Sonst wird es ein ewig langer Paddeltag auf dem Fluss. Die guides sind super. Kümmern sich perfekt um die Gruppe. Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe von 6 Leuten. Selbst das Mittagessen war super lecker. Kann diesen Trip nur weiterempfehlen!!! It was amazing. Thank you guides for this this incredible trip. We enjoyed every minute.
