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!

Friendly staff and yacht crew. Good range of free drinks and snacks. Unfortunately the dolphins didn't want to play, but they are wild after all, not performing dolphins ! Thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you.

The Caminito del Rey walk is truly an experience to enjoy. The hosts Luis and Esmeralda were fantastic with their knowledge, professionalism and helpfulness and would highly recommend a visit

Very enjoyable trip.Guides very friendly ,plenty of time to see the amazing gorge at your own pace. Venue needs to invest in more goilets for customers.

We saw so many dolphins on the 10am boat trip. The boat was super comfortable and lovely staff.
