Enjoyed the trip. Would recommend it. It started in Malaga, at 9:40, bus was clean and comfortable. Arrived by 10:30 in Nerja, the museum is not really worth it, but it's only a short walk from Balcony of Europe. Nice views there, left there at 12:10 towards the caves. Worth visiting but I did not like that it was crowded. The lunch break (13:30-14:30) is at the restaurant outside the caves and it is a bit of a tourist trap. Do not recommend it. Next is Frigiliana, white cute village, took the scenic train ride for 3 euros/half an hour. Walked about another half hour. At 16:00 bus ride back to Malaga. Arrived almost at 17 back at pick-up point. All in all enjoyed it, the guide was hard to understand, even though he mixed english/spanish/french.
They were both lovely towns to visit. We enjoyed being free to explore ourselves. I do think there should be details in the half-day your ad that you will be gone 10 hours, not 5! The tour was 5 but 5 hrs of bus riding. No one knew what time we would return. Our guide was multilingual and showed great enthusiasm for the Caves and we learned a lot. Would highly recommend you see the caves as that made the trip! I liked that we got to drive through Torreminos and Malaga a bit as well.
A nice day in two beautiful towns. However, even though the guide was nice, the tour itself was just standard - a large bus full of people, commentary in 3 languages on the bus and just free time in each town. I would suggest doing this tour with a different company that offers touring for smaller groups if possible.
Loved Frigiliana. It was an enchanted city and really beautiful lanes to walk by. We surely needed more time there. We liked our driver and guide in that place. However the English speaking guide inside Nerja caves did not know fluent English although she was trying very hard we did not understand what she spoke.
The bus was on time, comfortable, the guides friendly and informative. Frigiliana is a beautiful town, but the train your was disappointing. The recorded tour guide was too loud and fast, and in multiple languages. We had no idea what was being said.
