We had an amazing time! It was so easy getting on the coach from Nerja bus station and it was great having a guide throughout the walk. They give everyone a bottle of water and were able to answer any questions. Would definitely recommend!

everything went as written and arranged and I have to praise our guide, now I don't know exactly how to spell his name, but it was Ian, a man who was knowledgeable and fun to be with. I can definitely recommend

Ian was absolutely the best guide - so informative and attentive to detail. I highly recommend this trip, definitely a sight to behold. it is not scary at all - everything had highly secure guard rails.

Our tour guide Alex was great, he told us everything we needed to know history-wise on the way to Caminito Del Rey and then we were able to explore at our own pace which we really enjoyed. Great tour
