Very good trip, well organised and friendly guide Nieves who told us lots of information about each of the stops. The white villages are incredible and luckily the weather was decent as well. Ronda was a great final stop, and we had lots of free time there as well to buy souvenirs and walk around.

everything went as written and arranged and I have to praise our guide, now I don't know exactly how to spell his name, but it was Ian, a man who was knowledgeable and fun to be with. I can definitely recommend

Our tour guide Alex was great, he told us everything we needed to know history-wise on the way to Caminito Del Rey and then we were able to explore at our own pace which we really enjoyed. Great tour
