Full description
Depart Alicante and journey towards the village of Guadalest in the Guadalest Valley for a 6-hour tour of the scenic setting far from the crowded beaches of the Costa Blanca.  Travel inland through a mountainous area lined with charming villages. Upon arrival in the spectacular valley, go to the fortress of Guadalest village (El Castell de Guadalest) and see the remains of the 11th-century Alcozaiba fortress and San Jose Castle at the top of the cliff. Enjoy some free time to get to know the village and visit one of its museums, such as the Micro-Gigantic Museum. Continue to Las Fuentes del Algar (Algar Waterfalls) to admire a series of crystal-clear small springs and waterfalls in a spectacular setting. Bring your swimming costume to take a refreshing dip in the springs during the summer months, or just soak up the area's surrounding pathways and natural pools.

    Very nice discovery of this pretty village with a lot of interesting explanations and several incredible points of view! The little walk of the Algar fonts then is perfect for cooling off and discovering magnificent waterfalls! Alberto took the time to answer our questions and point out things not to miss.

    Breathtaking views, another wonderful day out from Alicante.

    So pleased to see Alberto again, we knew the day would be truly memorable. He is the best guide we nave ever had, a steady pace, interesting information and time for lunch. The only downside, would be ,having to pay for 3 people instead of 2 which makes the day expensive, and the falls were very busy, understandable being summer

    Great places and a good guide, schedule a bit tight.

    We had a really nice day with Alberton and another Australian party. The valley and the village are a wonderful place, although fully harnessed for tourism use. The guidance was really knowledgeable and smooth, the pick-up and drop-off went smoothly as desired where desired. However, the schedule was quite tight, both in the village and in Algari could have spent even longer. This round of ‘own’ time in both was just over an hour.
