Thanks Tristan for the highlight in our holidays. The organisation was perfect, we felt always very safe and learned a lot. The trip was a challange for some of us and overall a big fun for the entire family. Tristan was very well prepared and a perfect guide. At the end he recommended a chestnut cake and sausages produced in the local village. @Tristan. Thanks we bouht both and it was fantastic. If we will come back (and we will) we defenitely will plan our next tour with him. Cheers Markus and Family

What an experience! Yesterday we did the 1/2 day canyoning du haute chassezac. In the beginning we were a little bit nervous because we never went canyoning before. We went with the whole family with 3 kids ( age 10,11 and 13). Tristan was our guide for the day. He was very professional en nice with the children, so we were immediatly at ease. From the start we had correct and clear information about our material, what to expect in the activity, etc... First you have to walk to the canyon for approximately 30 minutes with your own material ( wetsuit, helmet, belt, drinking water) on your back. When you are down in the canyon you have the time to put your gear on. It was not easy to put ourselves into those neopreensuits...also the children where a bit stressed but we got a lot of help from Tristan and he explained to us it was important that the suits were tight to protect ourselves from the cold water...once you’re in the water the suit feels not uncomfortable anymore and the water was refreshing but not too cold. And then the canyoning started! Gliding, swimming, rappel, jumping from heights ( we did the 2 m and 4 m jump, but the 6 m was too scary...so we left it to the other group members. The high jumps are not obligated, so you can choose if you do them or not. It was great to see the children having so much fun! Even our youngest (almost 10) who is the most scared one loved everything! The nature in the canyon is amazing, take a time to look around you! I think we were 2 hours and a half or maybe 3 hours in the water but time flies when you’re having fun! And then the toughest part...walking back up with your gear (backpack of wet swimsuit, belt, helmet). The walk back is hard it’s uphill on a rocky path and takes about 40 minutes to 1 hour ( depending on the speed of your group). Sometimes we asked for a pause to rest and have a sip of water, but that was no problem. And then...we made it to the top!! All sweaty but who cares! I’m so proud of our family we did this together and we all had a great time! One of our best activities of our trip in France! Again special thanks to our guide Tristan from gecco adventure for his professional, reassuring, childfriendly way of working. We surely recommend this and we will come back! Thank you very much for this experience! Xavier, Joke, Léonce, Félice and Louic

My 2 daughters (8 and 10) and I had a great adventure completing the via corda at Casteljau today. Our guide, Alexis, was brilliant. He helped us traverse some daunting drops, helping my 8 year old if she struggled and led us along a path with constant breathtaking views. The final decent was being lowered about 30m vertically down to the edge of the river and my girls loved it! I had to change my booking from 4 to 3 on the morning of the activity and Gecco rang me up that evening to explain that they had refunded the money (even though I had changed this 3 hours before the start of the activity and sent an email to explain that I did not expect a refund) - excellent service.

We had the most amazing day in the canyon with Maxime F - a friendly and supportive Gecco guide who helped the four of us (kids 11 and 12) to jump, slide, scramble and swim for four hours amidst the most breathtaking scenery. An onlooker might think that the activities might feel dangerous, but under his calm guidance, each moment was one of pure pleasure. We can't quite believe that we made it to the end, but we would all do it again in a heartbeat. If you are within 200km of Haut Chassezac, this is a "must do" actviity for anyone seeking to discover (and break through) their limits.
