Overall good experience. It would be better if we were told to bring a jacket as the temperature in the morning in October in the gorge is very chilly. I would also appreciate if the guide restraint himself not speaking to the driver on the way to the destination in the morning. The noise was annoying when I wanted to catch up with some sleep.

Beautiful day. A big thank you to our guide Francisco! Very professional and it shows how much he loves his job! He explained everything to us perfectly and we learned a lot about the history of the caminito. I suffer from vertigo and was quite worried, but the road is safe and the walk is not too difficult, ca. 2-2.30 hours of walking with a crazy view! Highly recommended! I recommend that you bring a bottle of water and some snacks, you can buy food, but only at the end of the tour.

Great way to get to Caminito del Rey from Malaga old town. The bus was prompt and ready to leave on time from the NH Motel near Cortes Ingles. The bus was clean and air-conditioned and there were plenty of seats. Our guide was on top of everything and wasted no time getting us our gear so that we could begin the hike quickly before other groups. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The hike itself was amazing and I would definitely do it again, I like that this tour left early so we got there before the crowds and also before it was hot.
