What people are saying about Province of Málaga

This was the most fantastic tour I’ve ever had! Very personable driver who spoke fluent English was waiting for me at cruise terminal and whisked me away to Alhambra where I met my guide who was fluent in Arabic as well as English, and very knowledgeable in Islamic culture and history, which enabled him to provide detailed explanations of the Alhambra’s unique design, artwork and symbolism throughout the palaces. Tour time also allowed me to explore Granada’s old town before being returned to ship. I highly recommend.

We did book this tour reading reviews and would recommend taking this tour for the best experience. Our guide was Carlos very friendly and knowledgeable. We even got a lift to a restaurant in a nearby village by Carlos and his colleague as there was no train till late evening and helped us to take a taxi till Alora station. Carlos did provide a lot of detailed information about the place to us. This was a memorable experience passing through King's Path.

Completely changed our mind about guides and guided tours. Paul was simply the best. He made this experience a 100x better - do yourself a favour and do the guided caminito.

Wonderful trip for anyone wanting to learn the beauty of Andalusia!

In the fall I would put on a good coat it can be quite windy
