    Tina was the most enthusiastic, patient , knowledgeable, and friendly guide we have ever had. There were 6 mid seventy year olds in our group. She never showed any surprise or lack of confidence in our abilities.She is the best. Thank you…a highlight of our cruise.

    Caminito del rey is superb, the 3 hrs each way trip was not great. Strongly recommend you hire a car , 1 hr each way then . Also try and pre book tickets for the walk in advance, Very difficult to get hold of.

    25 years ago I saw a picture of a stunning natural feature in an obscure magazine. I got in my rental car and set off, not really knowing where I was going, driving on a road that became more and more scary . Narrow, no guardrail and parts of the road had just disappeared. I clenched my teeth and carried on. And was it worth it! Around a bend, and there it was. Garganta del Chorro .Incredibly high and narrow with a river at the bottom What really got to me, was the remnants of a wooden "walkway" more than halfway up the side of the ravine, culminating in a spindly "hanging bridge". Later I found out that it was created for king Alfonso XIII to observe the huge dams that were constructed as a water reservoir for the the Malaga Province. Therefore the name "Caminito del Rey". And for years I just came back here again and again. Every time it took my breath away. With the landscape around it, the enchanted forest and the wide, blue dams. Very few people seemed to know about it, mostly daredevil climbers. But as with Picasso, who lived his first 8 years in Malaga, but never came back, the powers that be found out that there was money to be had. So they restored the caminito which had been lethal to try walking on. And suddenly tour operators demand up to 275.- euros for the "unique experience" of walking through the gorge. I just fear the typical consequences of too many people discovering it, and then the magic disappears. As has happened so sadly often in other places...

    Excellent trip cost 88€ for 4 of us. We drove to the start. Some of the tour operators seem to be exploiting this trip.

    Not only did we get to experience the beauty of the Spanish mountains and hike an exciting trail, but you took extremely good care of our family members who were having a little trouble with the walk. We will never forget the experience!

    Caminito Del Rey tour was truely amazing, it took almost 3 hours to complete and the hike was 7.2km long from start to finish. The views of the canyon was truly breathtaking. Our guide Amanda was really friendly and she spoke good English, we had good conversations with her and she explained everything about the the historical walkway. A must visit destination if you’re in the Area!
