What people are saying about El Torcal de Antequera

Very interesting discovery combining cultural interest and superb landscapes. Thanks to our guide for his explanations and friendliness. It would be a shame to miss the Torcal d'Antequera if you are staying in the region. I recommend this excursion, especially if you don't have a car because Torcal is not accessible by public transport.

Juan Miguel was amazing tour guide. He showed us the best parts, told us beautiful stories. His passion about this part is amazing and involvement to listen us questions, answering. This is one tour guide who was find us spots for photos and he took photo of each person from the group, so it's perfect even if you travel solo.

El Torcal was spectacular, and we had the luck of seeing wild goats climbing the mountain. Visiting the dolmens early when it was not crowded at all was another good idea. Amazing tour! Thank you Justine :)

Great tour with Justine. Although she spoke Spanish most of the time she translated some key points into English for us. Don’t miss this tour when in Antequera.

Very nice guide, tour adapted to the participants, small group, good transport in a pleasant mini bus. In general everything is fine!
