Very well organised, and guided hike. The glorious weather also made the hike all the more special. The hike is approx 10k and fairly easy with great vista points for photograph opportunities. Thank you!

This is a hike for experienced walkers/hikers in good health. We travel the world and do most of our site seeing walking around and even we were sore for days after this hike. We have never gotten a guide before and while he was great, probably wouldn’t do it again. If you are in a large group and/or not comfortable walking without actually having a plan or knowing where you'll end up then I highly recommend getting a guide. The views along this hike are breathtaking and it ends at the beach. It was well worth the few days of approaching stairs with utter disdain!
