Great experience and very good. The guide was very nice and the jumps were high, which we really enjoyed. The walk up to the top was somewhat difficult in the heat of July, but the cold water at the top felt great.

Although we had to end our activity halfway due to bad weather conditions, it was definitely the best canyoning trip we ever did!

The positives:
- Our guide, Antoine, was really enthusiastic and tried to bond with everyone in the group. However, our safety was priority and he made the right choice to cancel the 2nd part of the tour.
- It is a good activity for beginners (and even children), but it is also challenging enough when you have some prior experience.
- Because we could only do half the trip, the guide told us that we could call the office to refund half the paid price. The next day we contacted them and they had already made the payment. 2 days later, the money was back on our account. Great service without even asking for it.

Only 1 remark: before the descend starts, you have to do a walk of around 40min. It's a really steep climb and one person in our group had some problems with it. But if your condition is average-good, it shouldn't be a big deal.

I booked VERGHELLU for my partners 30th birthday. The booking process was smooth with recommendations provided by the company and the ability to pay online. The meeting point was easy to get to, with amazing views on the convoy up to the canyoning area. The experience itself was one we will never forget. It's not every day you get to jump off a giant rock into a natural pool of crystal clear water, or slide down a waterfall! Everything was explained to us, and we felt safe during the activity. Really worth the money! Thank you for a fabulous morning Couleur Corse. My partner throughly enjoyed his birthday surprise and won't stop talking about the really high jump!

This was our first canyoning experience and it was great, would definitely do it again, the canyon was wild and beautiful as advertised, and the jumps great!
The course was with Couleur Course, and in written communication they were very friendly and responsive to questions and spoke English as advertised. Their equipment was absolutely fine and the wetsuits fitted well, and the guide even let me have some spare shoes.
However, I had the impression that our guide (Sebastian I think) would rather have been elsewhere than give the corse. I felt he was impatient, for example on the hike up to the starting point, told some members of the party to hurry up when it was clear they were not slow on purpose (don't know why anyway, we ended up finishing at least 20min early), and did nothing to make the group feel cohesive.

My two sons and I completed the 4 hour canyoning trip of the Verghellu this morning, The trip entailed a c. 1/2 hour walk to the start point in the canyon, followed by about 3 hours of descending the rapids and waterfalls of the canyon. The guide, Sebastian, was excellent. He gave very clear instruction and was sensitive to the different levels of ‘fear tolerance’ of different members of the group. The equipment was really fit for purpose - no worries about hitting the water with the thick wetsuits on - even on the larger jumps. The whole experience was exciting and exhilarating. Some of the jumps were awesome and the drop down the stone slab near the end was a real highlight. I’d wholeheartedly recommend the trip. All of this in tremendously beautiful scenery.

Super Nice , welcoming and trustworthy guide / instructor ( Lola). We we there two adults ( 52 and 54) and our 14 year old daugther. We all got a great kick out of it. We could have taken a bit longer trip but Then lunch was needed. Remember cash to pay for shoes.
