A unique experience and a highly recommended adventure. We made a beautiful route through the north of the Granada Geopark. The car is a comfortable 4x4 and we were 6 people including the driver. We had a super nice group and they also understood so it was great for us to learn even more. The delivery of Goyo Garrido Adventures is incredible, they explain everything to you and they also gave us a snack at one of the stops. What more could you want? And as if that were not enough, the route lasted longer than planned and we were able to enjoy it even more. Of 10 and totally recommendable, surely we will do something else with them.
