Great way for non driving tourists to see the Cabo de Gata - we had a number of different stops along the coastline and a great 3 hour free time from 2.00 at the restaurants and beach of San Jose. Our driver, Christian , did a fantastic job - not only driving a bus load of tourists around on a 9 hour day but also giving commentary in both Spanish and English all day - driver and guide all rolled into one !! The only downside was having an out of town pickup and drop off point in Almeria

Excellent trip. The bus very punctual, the guide very attentive, cordial and excellent condition and affable. The tour is super well explained and very interesting and updated. I will repeat without a doubt with Pepetours.

Brilliant, loads of information in English and Spanish. Plenty of stops. Christian was lovely, great sense of humour and a wonderful host. Would recommend this trip, bring swimwear for the free time stop at the end.

The excursion was good we liked it a lot and the driver and guide cristian was very nice cheerful and attentive

Superb landscapes, very friendly guide and above all a long time of free time on the magnificent beach
