This was an amazing experience for us and our 2 teenaged kids. Stunning scenery, challenging rocks, ladders, clambering through unspoilt forest, exploring breath- taking caves full of roosting bats and swallows, and floating down the river on our backs, singing at the tops of our voices. We leapt into beautiful deep pools from high rocks and had a picnic on the way around. You need to take your own snacks and water. It takes 6-7 hours and you feel quite tired but very happy at the end of it. The villagers make you hot coffee and fruit on your return. You can also buy sarongs and little woven bags at the village, all of which helps with local kids' school fees. Charlie, our local guide, was terrific - so knowledgable, helpful and seemed genuinely happy to be out and about with us. Wear good climbing shoes or runners with a good grip - they get pretty muddy and wet but they're very easy to revive after the tour. I wore reef shoes and it was a bit uncomfortable and slippery up and down the forest ladders and rocks. My fault entirely and I'll know better next time. You may find this activity too challenging if you've got bad knees, ankles or hips, so a certain level of fitness and physical ability is vital. As long as you're determined and robust, you'll have a ball. We're going back to Santo next year and will 100% do this again. The tour also supports a local village school and several villages, so it's a very important income for a great cause. Costs around 7500vtu per person - well worth the adventure and the feeling of accomplishment.

What an incredible day! It's so lovely to know that the cost of the tour is going towards supporting the local village, building schools etc. We definitely recommend for anyone a bit adventurous... parts of it are very slipperly and challenging!! It was overall such an amazing day and we felt so happy we hadn't missed this! It was so easy to organise the tour with Sam via email. Everything was perfect! :) highly recommend! Oh and we were very happy we wore old runners!

All in all the trip was excellent. A full day of fun for 7000 vatu. Some of the money goes toward community projects.

The trip is a mix of bush walking, caving, canyoning, and swimming. In total it took about 5 to 6 hours. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes, the rocks along the way are slippery and the track is muddy. Also please don't do this trip if you can't swim!! The only way out is downstream and you are required to swim (you will get a life vest).

We were 5 people on this tour, with 2 French couples and me (English speaking). The 2 guides carried our lunches in dry bags, but we had to carry our own water. I suggest taking a bag which you don't mind getting wet and put the water bottle in there. One of the French couples had problems carrying the water in their hands, as they needed both hands to stabilise themselves.

Great tour. Four activities in one single day.
But be careful it your fit it is not good. They don´t tell you anything before the activity but it is VERY hard. It your body it is not ready for strong exercise, don´t do it.
If you are fine, it is a great tour.
