Awesome day

It was an awesome day canyoning at Behana Gorge. We were with a group of 9 people and 3 instructors. The instructors were super friendly and experienced. They were patient (jumping of a cliff is not easy) and professional. I would highly recommend this tour!

So Much Fun - Can Be Scary

I was scared of doing this activity but it turned out great. The guides were absolutely amazing - so encouraging and supportive. I recommend this even if you aren't that strong. Just take your time going down the steep inclines and be confident when you jump into the water.

Awesome Day!

This fast paced, action packed tour is exactly what I had hoped it would be. Dom and Spencer kept us safe, but encouraged us to push ourselves to our own personal limits. I hate cold water, but I used the shortie wet suit that they offered and it kept me comfortable. You will jump off cliffs, abseil, and swim through rapids along with other surprise activities, and they provide a tasty lunch at the end. This tour is not for the faint of heart or those that want to stay dry! Also, unless you have a waterproof camera, they won't allow you to take it, but they take tons of great photos that you can purchase for a very reasonable price.
