Almost everyone's referring to a guide here. Is one necessary and if yes how much would one cost. Like say going to the telefrico or the 27 waterfalls.

The teleferico needs no guides. Just a taxi to the entrance to the cable car and return of course. Best to book the taxi for 1/2 or 1 day city tour to see all the sights. Do the teleferico in the morning to avoid the afternoon cloud cover.

The 27 falls have an excursion with guides, however they are not trained in any kind of emergency support. this is for the very fit only. Lives have been lost here. And never go after hard rains.
