100% recommended Great experience !!! Book online very easy. Very important to look at the address that comes in the description!!! They are smaller boats or boats, but with all their luxury, similar to being on a yacht, NOT like the ones just below the Torre de Oro, where you have to sit on plastic chairs, and on top of that pay more. Ecological, modern, luxurious, very friendly and attentive staff, the walk was wonderful, with explanations about the most important things to look at. They also have bar service!! We have enjoyed a lot!!!!

I had a little trouble finding the meeting place, which was a bit hidden by the vegetation (it's the small iron gate). I contacted the number listed on my reservation and had no problems. The gentleman was very kind and guided me. The staff on board were very helpful. Unfortunately, the hour passed too quickly! Pleasant walk.

I had read very negative reviews about the tour but it was great. Obviously the bus is long but it is very far from Malaga. We still stay 4 hours on site and the local guide is very good.

The captain and his staff were very friendly throughout the tour. We highly recommend them. Thanks for your kindness.

Informative. The small group allowed the guide to answer any questions we had. Would recommend.
