We loved the excursion, you have time to shop, eat, get to know towns with a lot of history, each one with its own particularity. Bolívar, our guide was spectacular, he told us many stories about the Alpujarra and seeing the evolution of the bridges, from the Roman to the present day was wonderful. Tour 100% recommended!

Great day out with a great group of 8 .Guide Enrique was excellent,switching between Spanish and English seamlessly. Especially the visit to the whitewashed village of Pampaneira in the Sierra Nevada.

Visit by transport to the different towns that make up the Alpujarra. It focuses mainly on the Alta Alpujarra, this being the most notable.

Super experience, fun, relaxed and very enthusiastic guide. Recommended
