    The tour itself was amazing, really impressive. Our guide was a bit hard to follow in English. He spoke both Spanish and English, but it was hard to tell the difference on the bus. During the walk he would find points to inform us, but he didn't wait for the whole group to catch up, so only the people right behind him could follow his story. Overall, we had a great experience, the highlight of our trip to Spain!

    Really great time we spend.

    It was such a great time with my kids. I could hear the sound of water flowing between the two canyons, and I could understand the history of this place deeply, both of the guides were so kind and explained the children's questions well.

    A great opportunity to see the Camino del Rey. Our driver Jose and our guide Javier were great. Javier was so easy going and talkative when needed. Highly recommended. The trail is less than 8km long and totally safe for all levels of fitness. A must see in Malaga.
