Full description
Your walking tour begins at the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, which is the main water reserve in the province of Malaga. Learn from your guide about the history of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes. This canyon, carved by the Guadalhorce River, is at the center of the province. The path is about 3 kilometers long and less than 1 meter wide. It hangs 100 meters above the Guadalhorce River. You will test your nerve on this high-up adventure. The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro included building a pathway for maintaining the channel. The path is known as El Caminito del Rey (the little pathway of the king) because it was inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII.

We have had a perfect day despite the cold weather. Why?We were lucky to be in the company of a perfect guide named Paul. He was kind, and could tell facts about the Camanito in a very vivid way. You can tell he used to be a teacher because of the way he handled the interaction in our group combined with (fun) facts. If I was the CEO of this company I would be proud to have an employee like him. Thanks Paul for a nice experience. Kind regards, Elja de Jonge

I booked because tickets had sold out to go on our own, but I am glad we took the tour instead. We had a great guide who was really funny and friendly and told us loads of interesting info about the walk and its history and the surroundings. The walk itself was just beautiful, and did not disappoint. thoroughly recommend.

Amazing trip to Camanito del Rey, stunning place, made better by a really well organised tour. Bus service and locations for drop off and pick up were brilliant. All made better by our tour guide (Paulo I think, sorry!) who was funny, insightful and made the time that bit more special - just superb. Muchas gracias!
