What people are saying about Antequera

Extremely interesting visit to the dolmens and the El Torcal natural park where we can see real amonites. The 11-year-olds were able to draw a parallel with science and history lessons…a delight for the whole family. The guide was very friendly and took the time to explain everything. An excursion that we recommend to do!

We just had a great guide! She shared her extensive knowledge of the dolmens and El Torcal with us, so that we not only had a great experience of nature, but were also able to take a lot of interesting facts with us from the trip!

A spectacular visit and very well guided and commented. The only thing to suggest is that in the confirmation of the visit the meeting / pick-up point is specified better, in more detail.
