The sights and overall tour was very exciting and unique. Our guide in caminito del rey, Carlos, was fantastic and made the whole experience for us. He was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate, answering all sorts of questions. Of course you can visit caminito del rey on your own, but the connivence of the round trip transportation and fantastic guide made this well worth the money.

Everything was amazing! Our guide, Rachel, was such a great character. She kept everyone engaged and supported. Plus the overall timing and planning was very comfortable. The path itself is stunning. Might be tough if you're afraid of heights.

This tour experience is amazing & one for the books. Our guide, Mercedes kept us safe and informed of the historical significance of the place throughout the activity.
