Overall rating

First of all, value the professionalism, friendliness and attention of Justine, our guide. Very punctual, excellent driver, and very knowledgeable about her work. The visit to the Dolmens was great, because he made sure that we arrived early when there were still no people to visit, so there were no lines or crowds. On top of that, since it works with small groups, there were 7 of us, which was the ideal environment. Afterwards we went up to Torcal, with a fog that could not be seen beyond 2 meters, but Justine, a great expert on the terrain, took us to see the most emblematic places, the native flora that is magnificent at this time and she documented everything for us. regarding Torcal. To repeat without a doubt.

Our guide, Ian, has a very relaxed and friendly personality. He shared his passion and knowledge of the area. The hike can be challenging for some with bad knees or a little disability. He provided walking poles to assist. He encouraged us to see other views that if I went by myself, I would not have discovered. It was very rewarding. Ian created an atmosphere for our group that was very friendly and personable. We sat afterwards in the Cafe chatting like we were all old friends.

I have always wanted to visit Torcal de Antequera and this tour did not disappoint. Everything was well organised. Special thanks must go to our guide Ian who was so knowledgeable and passionate about the Dolmens site and geology of the area. His enthusiasm for everyone to learn about the nature, conservation and history really made the tour one to remember. Highly recommended for those who love hiking and want to see a different part of Malaga province.

Amazing experience! I didn’t realize that Spain had this hidden gem and our tour guide was the best guide I have ever had! Thanks for this opportunity and knowledge I received 💯💯💯
