We had an amazing time! It was so easy getting on the coach from Nerja bus station and it was great having a guide throughout the walk. They give everyone a bottle of water and were able to answer any questions. Would definitely recommend!

everything went as written and arranged and I have to praise our guide, now I don't know exactly how to spell his name, but it was Ian, a man who was knowledgeable and fun to be with. I can definitely recommend

Ian was absolutely the best guide - so informative and attentive to detail. I highly recommend this trip, definitely a sight to behold. it is not scary at all - everything had highly secure guard rails.

Our tour guide Alex was great, he told us everything we needed to know history-wise on the way to Caminito Del Rey and then we were able to explore at our own pace which we really enjoyed. Great tour

Well organized tour with informative guides. Scary and thrilling and gorgeous all in one.
