This was the highlight of our two weeks in Spain. The scenery is just….breathtaking! I have struggled with some fear of heights, and was naturally a little nervous about this hike-but the payoff was well worth any fear. The hike was not terribly taxing, there were a few strenuous spots-but it was mostly flat with some gentle inclines and some more challenging stairs at the end. All in all-this was a truly wondrous day

The tour is amazing. The horses are well trained and walk the tour automatically. It was the first time for me on a horse and I didn't have any problems. You will pass beautiful locations and learn a lot about movies of Tabernas desert.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Pablo! Give the man a raise. He is wonderful and funny and gave us such good information. One of the better tour guides we have ever had!!

This was amazing, but a little more strenuous than advertised. I doubt children could do it.

Carlos was a good guide and very accommodating. It was a fun day out.
