            Ein wirklich tolles Erlebnis

            Unser Team-Event im Februar auf dem Brienzersee war grossartig. Unsere Gruppe von 11 Personen (alle noch nie zuvor in einem Kajak) wurde wintertauglich eingekleidet, professionell instruiert und sicher übers Wasser geführt. Wir haben uns alle rundum wohl gefühlt. Die Guides Sean, Barrie und Amy haben uns begleitet und bestens unterhalten. Eine Kajaktour im Winter können wir allen empfehlen. Nochmals herzlichen Dank für die tolle Organisation, die unkomplizierte Kommunikation und den von A-Z tollen Event. Wir hatten riesigen Spass bei euch.

            Sehr empfehlenswert

            Ich habe kürzlich eine Veranstaltung bei Hightide gebucht, und sie war ein voller Erfolg! Die Aktivitäten waren herausfordernd und fesselnd, und unsere Guides waren energiegeladen und sachkundig. Die Location in Interlaken war die Kirsche auf dem Sahnehäubchen. Sehr empfehlenswert für einen unterhaltsamen Tag ausserhalb des Büros.
