Enjoyed the trip. Would recommend it. It started in Malaga, at 9:40, bus was clean and comfortable. Arrived by 10:30 in Nerja, the museum is not really worth it, but it's only a short walk from Balcony of Europe. Nice views there, left there at 12:10 towards the caves. Worth visiting but I did not like that it was crowded. The lunch break (13:30-14:30) is at the restaurant outside the caves and it is a bit of a tourist trap. Do not recommend it. Next is Frigiliana, white cute village, took the scenic train ride for 3 euros/half an hour. Walked about another half hour. At 16:00 bus ride back to Malaga. Arrived almost at 17 back at pick-up point. All in all enjoyed it, the guide was hard to understand, even though he mixed english/spanish/french.

Very nice trip to Nerja, enough time to explore the village with the museum and the 'Balcon de Europa' before visiting the cave itself. Lots of advice from the driver / guide

Punctuality at all times. David very friendly. Awesome caves! Nerja and Frigiliana not to be missed. I recommend this walk. Unforgettable!

The guide's performance was excellent. The fantastic cave, as well as the towns of Frigiliana and Nerja.

Though the bus came super late but the guide was good and explained nicely.
