We are a couple of Quebecers in their sixties and loved our experience. Our guide Pablo was very kind and spoke French and our guide on the bus was always smiling. It is an unforgettable walk with some pleasant breaks. The canyons and the mountains are breathtaking! Bring your spotting scope because we saw condors at the top of the rocks.

The cost of the excursion is a few euros higher than what you would have spent reaching the path of the caminito del rey by train and choosing the option ticket plus guide. Consequently, the option offered by this excursion has a good value for money because it allows you to optimize times and take advantage of the comfortable transfer by coach. The path of the caminito del rey is exciting: it is easy to travel, it is not tiring, the views are breathtaking and the safety is maximum. In particular, the guide named Carlo was extremely helpful, funny and ready to meet the needs of the participants as well as providing interesting information on the history of the Caminito and on the morphology, fauna and flora of the place. I walked the caminito on December 14th: the weather was good and it wasn't too cold. We left eight and in the early afternoon we returned to Malaga. Highly recommended

We enjoyed this vey much, even my husband who doesn't like heights! A brilliant experience which shouldn't be missed. Take a torch for the first part in the long tunnel, luckily others with us used their phone torches, as the ground was very uneven and you couldn't see a thing! Also, the queue for the toilets was really long, we almost missed our slot to go with the guide, and this was in November!
