"We loved this tour! Stephen and Yafet were very professional, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. We zipped 5 lines with lovely ocean views. There is really no walking needed- we were taken to the first line in a large jeep. The tour ends at the descanso beach club. This is well worth every Penney!"
