Thought I was not going to get on this very popular tour but found a ticket with GetYourGuide. Excellent experience with tour guide Vivian who effortlessly switched between four languages. Driver Paco was punctual and safe. The tour itself was spectacular, well worth the ticket price with its unforgettable views.

It was great fun joining the little group of eight! Alfonso was very informative and let us know about various things (history, surroundings, etc). He gave us just the right amount of information compared to some tour guides who can easily drift off for quite a while making it a tedious experience, but this wasn’t the case with Alfonso. He was very easy to talk to and we enjoyed our chats with him! I definitely recommend everyone to join him on this great little adventure!

Definitely exceptional excursion, suitable for everyone except those suffering from vertigo. The path is all very easy and smooth. The problem occurs at the exit, therefore at the end of the path, because there are still about 2 km to travel to get to the bus stop: dirt road, stony and uphill and that (as happened to us) if you have to do it under a scorching sun and we did it in mid-September, it gets quite tiring. Easily solved problem by using small means to retrieve visitors
a brilliant activity. exciting and entertaining. was really fun with roman. he took really nice pictures of the group and sent them to us
Highly recommended, too good, Ian and Rechelle, great guides make the experience much easier
Everything great and the guides make everything easier, nice people
