What a hike! At first, I was a little sour because our guide was doing our hike in both English and Spanish, but our guide more than made up for it by making sure to answer all of our questions and took time to chat with us individually. Keep up the good work!

We had a fantastic time on this tour at Caminito del Rey. It is such a spectacularly beautiful location. Our guide was wonderful - she provided us with great historical background information, helpful details and engaging stories. I truly appreciated the care that she took of us, including those who were nervous. What a wonderful afternoon!

Although not the dicing with death hike it was a decade ago this is in one of the most incredible sets for a hike. Although a highly popular tourist attraction the organisers have set it up in such a way that you always have enough time and space to enjoy your surroundings. In addition to the stunning backdrop of the gorge the history of the walkway and its original purpose adds to the experience.
