Very nice experience with Dreampeaks. We had a guide who made sure everything was secure and safe. Very professional. Besides that it was an adventure to experience the canyoning in such a nice surroundings. Would really recommend this for an alternative trip outside the busy center of Madrid when visiting.
A really memorable family experience. Great for a family who enjoys adventure and challenge. The dream peaks team are fantastic!
The family had an amazing day with Danielle and José… really out of the comfort zone for the kids (ages 12 and 14), but felt completely safe and guided through the canyon. These guys were great with the kids and they had a blast! Highly recommend it to someone looking for a break from the typical sites of Madrid. It’s truly an unforgettable experience!
We had a great time canyoning with Dreampeaks. The whole experience was very simple and convenient from start to finish. The guides were very experienced and helped us to feel very safe and comfortable. I would definitely recommend Dreampeaks!
Thank you for this amazing experience! We had the best guide, polite and funny. We’ll be back again !
