"I enjoyed the tour and am glad i did it and saw the canyon and scenery. I was not anticipating the huge crowds giving the bad weather and prefer to see nature in uncrowded areas. The guide was good and provided lots of interesting information. The tour lacked something that I cannot put my finger on. I found the pace way too slow. 4hours to walk 7km is a snail pace. We would have had ample time for photos and could have had a lunch stop (if we had been told) if we had walked at a normal pace. Half of our group were stopped waiting for the rest of the group for much of the time and it was annoying as the guide had to stay back with them so in the meantime we missed out on whatever info he was conveying. I'd have preferred a faster pace much longer walk through the canyon but it is what it is and was worth doing nonetheless. "

"This was the best tour of my 4 weeks in Spain . Jose was a master of geology and history. It wasn’t just a hike it was an education . If you go on this tour make sure to ask for Jose. The hike itself was really worth it . I like the Caminito del Rey more than the Grand Canyon because it’s narrow and you can really get up close. Don’t miss this tour. "

"If you consider doing the Caminito Del Rey Tour please book with Smart Holidays Andalusia! The tour was so amazing and our Tourguide Jorge did a great job guiding us through the canyons and showing us every detail and giving a lot of background history! I appreciated the fact that he wasn't in a rush at all and even decided himself to let other groups pass so we would have more time by ourselves to talk and for the presentation. He was very kind and took photos for all the group members whenever they wanted to take a nice picture. Our group consisted of around 8 people and I would definitely book again with his company! :)
Thank you so much for an unforgettable day in the Caminito!"

When we walked the route it was okay. that we were once in a while walked in our own speed.
We were part of a Nice small group and there was control of all things about transport, security and all. We were even called up at the collection site, announcing that there is a slight delay of 5-10 minutes.
All in all, a fantastic nature experience and we were safe and professionally conducted throughout the day."

"Very good experience! Guide was excellent "
★★★★★Tiffanie, Canada, 25 September 2017
"The tour was great and I highly recommend it. The only area for improvement is that the pick-up location should be more clear (the email said it was at the tourist info centre but the actual location was on the side of the street about 250m away from the tourist information centre). There was a bit of confusion for our pick-up and I would recommend having a sign or having a vehicle with the company name/logo on it to help travellers identify the pick-up location.
Still a great tour that I highly recommend. Jose is a very informative guide. Thank you!"
★★★★★Candace, United States, 21 September 2017
"The tour was amazing and so much more than I could have imagined. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. Since he hiked the Caminito del Rey before the new platforms were installed he has some great stories about what the hike used to be like. I recommend doing the hike that includes breakfast and lunch, it's worth it! This small tour will be much more enjoyable than the large group tours that are run by the cruise ship companies! I have not included a photo because the truth is, no matter how amazing the photo, it will never do the Caminito del Rey justice, it's just to beautiful. You have to see it with your own eyes. While there is a path, hike is not a term that should be used lightly here. If you are not healthy enough for physical activity or are not bringing shoes with traction that lace up (hiking shoes or tennis shoes), you should not attempt this hike; other than that I recommend it to everyone. "
★★★★★Nick, United Kingdom, 19 September 2017

He even gave us a taste of the carob tree pods where they are used to make chocolate for warmer countries. Well done Jose, you added a highlight to the awesome caminito day trip for us not just the gorges but your lively character for us to take away for our life. "

★★★★★Marie, Denmark, 4 August 2017
"We had a very great experience. It was the most beautiful trip! And we were very happy to have a guide with us that could tell us about the place and point out the things we needed to put attention to. It was really hot yesterday and he was kind to look after us to see if we had enough water. Another thing was that we were very happy to be picked up by the bus after the trip. At that point we were so tired so it would have been exhausting to wait for public transportation. Unfortunately the aircon was broken."
★★★★★Antonino, Italy, 4 August 2017
★★★★★Laura, United Kingdom, 31 July 2017

He made sure we were looked after on what was a really hot day to do the walk (35 Celsius) and overall was a great trip.
I highly recommend booking with Malaga Trips especially with Jose as your guide for Caminito Del Rey, it really made the walk more interesting with his knowledge. "

"From the moment we were picked up from our hotel to when we got back the level of attentiveness and information was amazing without being overpowering. It felt like you were part of a family outing in which you were made very welcome. This trip is definitely worth every cent as it takes away the stress of transport, meal stops and getting through the busy queues. Jose was always willing to impart his knowledge throughout the walk including the geology, vegetation and his own experiences of the walk before the safe path was built! But he was also keen to discuss his views on football, politics, SPANISH Olive Oil and fatherhood (he had just had his 2nd child). My teenage son even enjoyed it and that's saying something!!"
★★★★★Erik, Denmark, 19 February 2017
"The tour was great, and with the guide we had knowing so much about how and why the area looks today, it was just good.
