The trip was very well organized. Transport by modern coach with several stops. A lot of time on the way to enjoy the landscape and to listen to the multilingual, very nice guide. Luckily, the Caminito del Rey wasn't that crowded in November. But beware: the weather can be worse there than on the coast! Luckily our guide had free rain capes with him. You also need good shoes, because the wooden planks can be a bit slippery when wet. The Caminito itself and the landscape are stunning! A great experience! However, only suitable for people with a head for heights and not afraid of heights. Everyone could walk the path at their own pace. The time was generous and anyone who is an experienced walker can easily manage the route. From Nerja it was a 9 hour, highly recommended day trip.

The experience at El Caminito del Rey was very transgressive for me to sign up for. Still, I'm so glad I did it because YOU MADE IT even though my left lower leg broke in 3 places almost 2 years ago. I was afraid it wouldn't make it but YEEES....my leg also handled the rigors with glamour. I would have regretted not participating because the experience was absolutely amazing.

Everything was perfect. The guide was very nice, helpful and had much knowledge of the area and the Caminito which he shared with us on our way to the Caminito del Rey. I made my reservation from Norway and the trip went as I expected from pick up to drop off.

The driver (professionally dressed) was waiting at the airport with a visible sign. Took us right to the nearby parking lot. Ride was very pleasant!

Great day out. Good value and best route from Torre del Mar.
