I have always wanted to visit Torcal de Antequera and this tour did not disappoint. Everything was well organised. Special thanks must go to our guide Ian who was so knowledgeable and passionate about the Dolmens site and geology of the area. His enthusiasm for everyone to learn about the nature, conservation and history really made the tour one to remember. Highly recommended for those who love hiking and want to see a different part of Malaga province.
