Favorite thing we did in Granada. Exactly what we were looking for. Bikes were in excellent condition and our guides provided any assistance needed (their bike overview was very brief so if it's your first time riding an e-bike you want to make sure you understand how they work before taking off). While the guides go at a leisure pace and will go slower if the group needs, the trip does require some endurance to manage the ~55km ride. we were all sore the next day.

Amazing guide Louis and epic nature. Absolutely loved it. Wish the hike would be all day.

Really great walk, varied and adventurous and amazing views! Our guide was great too!

Our guide Louis was great and made our walk on the Caminito del Rey very enjoyable!

Luis was a fantastic guide and we had a wonderful experience!
