Join a Spanish-speaking guide who will accompany you throughout the tour, and hear anecdotes and learn all the curiosities surrounding the incredible location and construction of the walkw...

    A little disorganized when you get there as to where to go on the road leading to the Kiosk, but we just asked the closest guide for the tour ahead of us who told us to wait for the English speaking guide. Our guide, Carlos, was very informative and had been doing this for 13 years so he knew a lot and had great information. This tour was strenuous at times and got so bring water and even a small snack to keep up your energy. Not recommended for anyone fearful of heights or anyone who can’t keep up with walking, in a wheelchair or kids. But, it was the most amazing experience- almost like a Spanish Grand Canyon! Totally exhilarating and highly recommended!
