    We were a very small group (only 4 people) and we could not have written a better day with our guide Federico. We started before dawn and visited a bird observatory to watch the sun rise, then drove through Doñana national park which was extremely peaceful and beautiful. After a small breakfast in El Rocio, we visited Palacio del Acebrón, then headed to the beach at Matalascañas where we visited the dunes and spent a lazy afternoon watching the waves.

What people are saying about Costa de la Luz

We thought that the departure took place from the port of Cadiz as for the experience we had in Malaga. Therefore, we could not be there on the scheduled day. The provider was very welcoming and understanding in allowing us to come the next day. We especially thank him because we really had a good time in front of a superb sunset. The staff are very friendly. We are really very happy to have been able to discover this bay despite our mistake. Indeed, we did not know the province and its geography. This adventure allows you to understand the map and admire the grandiose site. We recommend this very suitable initiative to discover the bay and its unforgettable sunset.

Really good and informative trip around Isla Cristina. There was English audiophone after the guide spoke in Spanish. Twice he showed us specific translations on his phone. We stopped and were served white wine ( and for the 10 adults he left two bottles for topping up) or soft drinks for children, and prawns that were caught locally. For €10 I think it was an excellent trip and would thoroughly recommend it

The local tour company was very responsive and a phone call was received three days before the tour. Also, during the Christmas season, the dissolution location had to be changed from the meeting place, so he sent me to me near the hotel without any intuition.

Don't miss this tour! Very professionally organized and managed. Exceptional guide. Highly recommend.
