    A little disorganized when you get there as to where to go on the road leading to the Kiosk, but we just asked the closest guide for the tour ahead of us who told us to wait for the English speaking guide. Our guide, Carlos, was very informative and had been doing this for 13 years so he knew a lot and had great information. This tour was strenuous at times and got so bring water and even a small snack to keep up your energy. Not recommended for anyone fearful of heights or anyone who can’t keep up with walking, in a wheelchair or kids. But, it was the most amazing experience- almost like a Spanish Grand Canyon! Totally exhilarating and highly recommended!

This canyon, carved by the Guadalhorce River, is at the center of the province. The path is about 3 kilometers long and less than 1 meter wide. It hangs 100 meters above the Guadalhorce River. You will test your nerve on this high-up adventure. The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro included building a pathway for maintaining the channel.

    Enjoy this tour so much. Our guide was nice lady, told us many informations during the whole tour. We get these radios so we heard all she said and we was able to stop and take pictures or just enjoy view at the same time. No need to hurry up. Views and overall experience are 5/5 for me.

    Thought I was not going to get on this very popular tour but found a ticket with GetYourGuide. Excellent experience with tour guide Vivian who effortlessly switched between four languages. Driver Paco was punctual and safe. The tour itself was spectacular, well worth the ticket price with its unforgettable views.

This was a beautiful walk with astonishing views. Our guide, Maria, was very enthusiastic and gave us very interesting background information. Afterwards we also walked from the back of El Kiosko to the start of El Caminito, which is also a beautiful walk.
