What people are saying about Province of Málaga

Fantastic place to visit. Total walk is about 5 miles with some steep and narrow steps so you need to be reasonably fit and able manage lots of steps. The walk other than that is not difficult or scary, unless heights are a major issue for you. At the end of the walk there is a range of food and drink outlets, all reasonably priced.

Very beautiful experience and well organized. The guide, Alvaro, was really helpful, extremely kind and interesting. He exceeded our expectations. Caminito del rey is easy and relaxing, perfect for everyone. Also the afternoon at the lake next to the path was a nice discovery. We really suggest this experience

The trip was very cool. It wasn’t that hard but i would recoment it for everybody. We got along with each other in the group, so it was quite easy to communicate. If you don’t have any experience going up hill, you should still give it a try!

A very well organized tour with very friendly guides who speak four languages and take great care of the participants. The tour is impressive, but still not too difficult to walk. An unforgettable experience!

Fascinant! A must trip from Malaga. Thanks to our guides Alvares and Pedro!!!
