2. Malaga: Caminito del Rey Path Day Trip with Guide

Choose your closest departure from Costa del Sol and board in an air-conditioned coach. Sit back and relax on the journey to Caminito del Rey. Just 5.6 miles from Caminito del Rey, make a quick stop in the picturesque town of Ardales where you will have free time to visit it at your leisure.

Begin your walking tour at the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, the main water reserve in the province of Malaga. Learn about the history of the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes from your local guide. This canyon, carved by the Guadalhorce River, is at the center of the province. Inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII, the path known as El Caminito del Rey (the little pathway of the king) served as a maintenance route for the water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro.

The tour was flawless from start to finish. The meeting point was very easy to find and you are very well instructed by the guides. So the bus leaves on time. The guided tour itself of the Caminito del Rey was wonderful. Above all, the exciting background information from our guide Luiz and he gives everyone enough time to take a few nice photos. All in all a nice tour and highly recommended - if you are in Malaga you should not miss the Caminito del Rey!

Well organised, Ian the guide was vey friendly and knowledgeable. Stunning location! Only downside was I couldn’t pay from the UK and customer service was poor, when I tried to sort it out. They didn’t even get back to me, the trip was cancelled and I had to rebook again.

Amazing experience! Our guide Luis was absolutely fantastic, was humorous and took very good care of us during a very hot weather. The views are gorgeous and the guide really does add value. Do recommend and no need to be afraid of heights.

Definitely worth a trip to Caminito de Rey! "Wonderful" We were recommended by friends and are glad we did. Tip : bring water (we received this through our booking) and book this trip in the morning (it can be very hot)

Great guided trip to Caminito. Louis and Ian who were our guides were entertaining and knowledgeable. Our coach driver drove brilliantly as well. Coach was clean and comfort. Highly recommended.
