As a mixed group of those who had previously attempted rappelling and those who had not, this was a perfect, fun couple of hours spent with our very competent and charming guides Raoul and Philippe. As mentioned in another review, the walk in wetsuits to the canyon was the most probably the most challenging part of our trip. The willingness of our driver Sam to stop for photo stops on the way back down the hill while providing local knowledge was much appreciated and the friendliness, enthusiasm and helpfulness of the rest of the Madeira Adventure Kingdom team topped off our experience. Thoroughly recommend this outdoor activity - different levels for different abilities. Photos are taken by the guides throughout the activity, looking forward to receiving ours by email.

My partner and I did a walking trip with this company, the particular walk was between the two highest peaks. Our guide and driver were great, very knowledgable and friendly and we had a great day.

This ia a great introduction to canyoning. It's hard work traipsing down the steep hillside to the canyon, especially when boiling in your wetsuit. But our instructor Fabio was brilliant - tailoring his approach to the varying fitness and bravery of his group, whilst providing fun and laughs for all.

It wasn't the most hardcore canyoning. The biggest jump into water was probably 10 feet, the biggest abseil maybe 20 feet. But it was fun and I would recommend for the reasonably fit. I count myself as above average fitness but my thigh muscles were crippled the next day!

I don't want to ruin it but let's just say the 'surprise' at the end was perfect!

Two tips: 1) remove any rings - your fingers will swell 2) take water for afterwards

If I had one small complaint it would be that more pre-activity information is required. We'd done canyoning before so we knew to wear trainers and a swimsuit for example, but others might not. And if the company want to leave their guests with an even happier memory, providing cold water at the end would delight.

The experience was great. All the staff is professional and fun. It's a must try if you like nature with a twist of radical adventures. The slide at the end is awesome. The only let down was the fact the recent fires destroyed a lot of the vegetation.

We spent 5 days in Madeira. Among all the activities and places, the canyoning activity of Adventure Kingdom was undoubtedly the most unforgettable one. There're not only great landscapes, and the guides are professional, responsible, and funny. Under their care, you can feel easy in mind to enjoy the scenery and, just PLAY! I especially love the perfect ending, wanna know what it is? Just go and find it out, you won't regret.
