Family guided tour! 3 hrs! A bit long because forced to wait for the group! Our guide was very friendly and provided us with explanations and anecdotes. However, the price was clearly exaggerated because of last minute purchases! But the place is spectacular! I don't regret having done it! Too bad, some walkways were closed because of the wind ...

Very nice tour, but a bit slow with guide for quite large group. The hike itself is easy, mostly downhill, with spectacular views down in and along steep gorges. The guide we had was medium; did not speak good English and thus did not communicate the story in an engaging way. We overheard another group that went about the same time with the English guide - it sounded a lot better.

There were 25 people in our group. We took the tour just after Christmas - at peak times and booked the afternoon slot, the 1.30pm tour, as there was a rail replacement bus from Malaga. We had to wait around for a couple of hours at El Kiosko before the tour started. Our guide was Pablo, he was very kind and funny. Our group was mixed ages and abilities and we took a leisurely pace (it took just over two hours once we got our helmets) to walk El Caminito. We missed the raised walkway at the end due to high winds, but still had plenty of amazing views and the suspension bridge at the end was truly the highlight. My mum is terrified of heights and she made it through. It was a brilliant adventure and thanks to Pablo for the stories on the way. We were all very grateful for the beer at the end!
