Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. He showed us the complexity of the landscape with visits to the small towns and natural areas. We as also got a good understanding of the history and architecture of the area. Lunch at a local restaurant was really good. There was a good balance between driving and us taking informative short walks. The size if the group was six people, which was ideal. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I can highly recommend this event. Well done!

This was a great trip to the white villages of the Alpujarra. Our guide Rafa was very knowledgable and friendly. We stopped for a great lunch and had some free time to wander around one of the villages to look at the amazing architecture and views. I would highly recommend this tour.

A non-touristy, beautiful trip with nature, mountains and villages.

During the Alpujarra tour you drive through the beautiful Spanish mountain landscape, you walk through nature, you come in cute villages, you enjoy the views, you drink spring water from natural sources, you put on a nice restaurant and make a delicious wine-tapas tasting, where you can also buy a nice or nice souvenir. We were accompanied by the enthusiastic guide José, who could tell us everything about the area! For when you want to get away from the tourist crowds in the big cities. Worth doing!
