I recommend this trip 100%! We came with four adults and our kids ages 8-14. They have bikes of all sizes and even tandem bikes for kids who can't ride mountain bikes. The guides were so friendly and fun. The day was the perfect combination...More

Most of the reviews are pretty spot on. The big fat tire bikes provide good stability. The very first portion is pretty strenuous and all but very fit riders will need to walk their bikes to the top - not the end of the world...More

We had two young girls, both 8. And we had a great time biking and playing in the waterfalls. I was worried the biking would be too difficult. The guides were great and super positive!

Our family has done the "Plunge" three times now in the last 15 years! It's truly a blast! You can't find a better deal as well; an all day adventure for only $65 a person, well worth it!! The tour guide are always top-notch.
