Amazing full day tour, great tour guide and driver, and BREATHTAKING natural landscape you will see nowhere else. Take this tour

What an AMAZING experience! We were slightly worried over this tour having less reviews than other tours, but don't let that bother you! Our tour guide Danny provided some really great information about the indigenous inhabitants of the area, their way of life, and some history.

However, the main focus was always on the experience itself. From lounging in a natural hotspring and sipping a frozen drink in the sun, to eating lunch by an equally warm and enjoyable river. The food was good quality as well!
While at the hotsprings you have the opportunity to zipline for 200 pesos per person. I recommend it, you get some amazing views of the mountainscape and cacti.

The best part, in my experience, was the caves and waterfall tunnel. Oh my gosh, SO COOL! You honestly feel like you're seeing something not everyone else has, and it's really special being there in person. The caves were just breathtaking, I don't think I stopped saying "WOW!" our whole time there. Literally awesome.

This was a full day tour, picking up in the early AM and getting back around 10pm. Bring some headphones, and a battery pack. And don't sit at the back of the bus if you get motion sickness!
Oh my gosh *amazing* !

This tour is incredible ! The pools and river are stunning, and every little detail is taken care of so you can enjoy the smoothest day ever - from the sunscreen to the dry towel after the caves. The road is long but the stops for food are perfect.
Best tour around

Everything from start to the end. Danny our guide did excellent job explaining and taking us to every part like pools, lunch by river, caves, it is bonus that he is fluent in English. This trip was canceled on us twice by others and it was on top of my list, thank god we did it. I’ll go there again next time, we were in Mexico for over three weeks and this trip is the Best everyone should experience this. My one disappointment was that the group didn’t tip, the driver and Guide deserved that for the safe and detailed trip, I’ve read some companies don’t even take you to all the places or leave you there on your own, Danny was in the caves with us and set up tables for relaxing lunch. Thanks guys for making our trip memorable and the place itself is memorable. Heaven on earth.
Amazing but uncomfortable tour

Amazing destination with awesome guides who were very helpful and well equipped. The only thing that let down the experience was the buses used for transport, extremely cramped and uncomfortable especially for the 3 or 4 hours travel each way. I understand smaller buses are required to reach the river, however choosing cramming in extra rows over passengers comfort looses the 5th star today.
