What people are saying about Province of Málaga

Liked the Dolmens a lot, awesome how a 180-ton-stine could be moved at all, interesting how they tried to explain this miracle in the movie which was shown to us in the Dolmens museum. José Miguel -hope I remembered the name correctly - was our guide for the whole Dolmen and walk experience through the Natural Park of Torcal de Antequera. We saw tons of goats which is not an everyday-experience as our guide told us. Make sure you have good walking shoes, actually best (to protect your ligaments) would be ankle-high- hiking shoes since you are mostly walking on stones. All in all a highly recommendable experience. It's a magic area, both, the Dolmen site and the Natural Park.

Carmen was excellent Tour Guide. Tour of Bullring was informative and interesting. Plenty of free time to explore Ronda. Sentinel was disappointing because all the restaurants were closing as we arrived and I felt 1 hour in Winter time was too long in this pretty little village when there was nowhere to go to for coffee or drink. Glad we visited Ronda as part of your rather than going on our own with public transport

Nice small group excursion to the dolmens in Antequera and Torcal natural park. The group was transported with a mini van through a nice scenic route to both sights. Torcal park was really impressive and we saw plenty of wild life in park in addition to the plants and geology.

My family and I had a great experience. The driver was timely and courteous. Our guide was exceptional.

A great overview of the major historical attractions in Malaga.
