We had a fabulous day led by our fantastic tour guide Lewis, who was very knowledgable and gave a very informative and interesting talk . The tour itself was amazing, very picturesque and the views were incredible. The only negative was that the pick up time was not very clear as two pick up times were shown, but after sending a message via the chat option the correct time was confirmed shortly after.

Everything was perfect. The guide was very nice, helpful and had much knowledge of the area and the Caminito which he shared with us on our way to the Caminito del Rey. I made my reservation from Norway and the trip went as I expected from pick up to drop off.

It was an amazing experience! I would recommend to anyone who visits Malaga! Stunning scenery!

Out of the world experience..To top it all our guide Louis was the best ever

Great day out. Good value and best route from Torre del Mar.
