What a mass of hysteria at the start of this walk. Due to problems with the radio reception, an official (large) group led by a guide left there too late. And the next big group right after us. It was thanks to our sympathetic guide that this walk turned out to be a beautiful experience. He decided to stop and leave the group behind us. After that we were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings in reasonable rest. And we got to hear the interesting history about this place.

First of all: the actual goal, i.e. the Camino del Rey, is always worth doing this tour. Everything went well and after almost exactly 6 hours we were back. Our guide Pablo was just great. However, I had booked the small group tour at a higher price. And the ride in a large 50-seater (half occupied) and the group size of 9 people were borderline for me. It would have done the same for 20% less.

It was great fun joining the little group of eight! Alfonso was very informative and let us know about various things (history, surroundings, etc). He gave us just the right amount of information compared to some tour guides who can easily drift off for quite a while making it a tedious experience, but this wasn’t the case with Alfonso. He was very easy to talk to and we enjoyed our chats with him! I definitely recommend everyone to join him on this great little adventure!
