Me, my boyfriend and his dad were interested in hiking the Camino del Rey, and decided to go with a guided tour so we didn't have to worry about coordinating transportation. I'm so glad we did! All details were taken care of - transportation, tickets to the Camino, and time to enjoy swimming in the lake at the base of the trail as well as enjoying a nice beverage and bite to eat before and after the hike (at restaurants/food and drink stands located at either end). We had a blast! The hike itself was incredible. The views of the canyon with emerald water snaking through was breathtaking. Our guide, Pablo, was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about the history of the Camino, and we were all very impressed with his tour guide skills.

Can absolutely recommend this tour. The Caminito is incredible to walk and the history and nature surrounding it is fascinating. Learned so much and had fantastic views. Unfortunately one part of the trail had to be closed of fir security reasons (heavy winds and stone fall), but better be safe than sorry, the experience was still awesome.

It was a great day, our guide Pablo was very knowledgeable and shared interesting historical and geographical facts about the Caminito del Rey. Only suggestion is around the time table, we would have loved a bit longer time at arrival for toilet (very long queue) and refreshments and also for swimming and eating after the tour. Especially since the tour was supposed to be 7 hours long, but we got back one hour earlier, so could have enjoyed a bit longer time at the end... Otherwise all great, amazing views!
