Great day trip. Took approx 90 mins from Malaga to destination. Excellent communication directly with tour operator when checking where the meeting point was, and our coach and guide arrived on time. Our large group was split into 3 parties on arrival at Caminito del Rey, so each group consisted of approx 18 people. Had time for a toilet stop (only 2 toilets and the queue could be quite long; be aware) and to buy any refreshments. Our guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the area. The trek, which took approx. 90 minutes, was amazing. Would highly recommend.

A must do when visiting Malaga! Booking thru GetYourGuide was great for us, easy meeting point in town, coach pickup, coffee stop on way, great guide Anna on coach, entrance included and guide Carlos was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and got so much information about it all with the guided tour. Lots of fantastic photo opportunities not rushed at all. Loved it !

This was perfect because there was only 1 pick up point and then straight to the tour... be carefully to the other tour that can take up to 3 hours to pick up people
