The tour was nice. I did enjoy all of it. For the first time is good to go with the guide, but next time would go for the full path on my own. If you are coming by train from Malaga, you would be a little late, but the staff from the hotel is very kind and was waiting for the ones coming a bit late. Make sure to follow the time while on tour, since the train leaves before 2pm and the tour might take a bit longer. You wouldn't like to miss the train, since the next one is quite late in the evening. Thanks for the experience!

Lovely trip, for someone with fear of highs it was really amazing to push myself ;D I took a train from Malaga and it was late, but the tour guide was lovely and waited for me. I also managed to get a train back at 13:51 (next one is after 9pm so it’s up to you if you wanna wait if you’re not driving - there are lovely places to eat and drink if you’re not in a rush though and the sunset probably looks insane between the mountains). The only reason why I’m giving 4 out 5 stars is because the guide didn’t speak very good English, barely at all, but he was funny and charming :)

Amazing experience, amazing breathtaking views. Very good care and organization. I recommend going with a guided group. I arrived by train from Malaga with a delay of a few minutes at 9:45, but I made it, the agreed place is right next to the station, the guide was waiting at the hotel reception. After crossing the gorge, and it was not very tiring, there was still time to rest and return by train at 13:51 to Malaga. A great day, highly recommended
