Great day trip. Took approx 90 mins from Malaga to destination. Excellent communication directly with tour operator when checking where the meeting point was, and our coach and guide arrived on time. Our large group was split into 3 parties on arrival at Caminito del Rey, so each group consisted of approx 18 people. Had time for a toilet stop (only 2 toilets and the queue could be quite long; be aware) and to buy any refreshments. Our guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the area. The trek, which took approx. 90 minutes, was amazing. Would highly recommend.

Booking thru GetYourGuide was great for us, easy meeting point in town, coach pickup, coffee stop on way, great guide Anna on coach, entrance included and guide Carlos was superb.
