The truth is that we loved it, thanks to Sergio the driver and especially to Miguel the guide, who made the visit very enjoyable, with his charm and his way of explaining things to us, despite spending a long time on the bus. visit I recommend it 100%

Well-organized trip, nice staff. I kind of would have wanted to have more time in the destinations but that’s not a minus for the organisers of the trip itself. Would recommend this for everyone.

Guide Marceollo guided us through the gorge excellently with his information and with those who were afraid of heights! It's a great getaway if you're in Mallaga, definitely do it!!

Superb view. Also visit the museum with paradise garden and view

Very knowledgeable guide, order in everything Top!
