What an awesome experience!

Just finished this activity an hour ago. Nee and Jonathan were our guide and they looked after us really well! We were a group of four, 3 adults and our 4 year old boy. I highly recommend this activity for anyone who like outdoor activity. Thank you Nev and Jonathan for your fantastic service!
