Malaga: Nature Quad Bike Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
Caminto Del Rel is an exceptional place to visit. I visited with my elderly in laws and young kids. The view of the gorge was outstanding. I had never done anyting like this before. It is a 3 hour hike which ends in a long walk to the exit where our bus was waiting. I felt that last kilometer was more gruelling for seniors than the King's path itself. I would recommend to carry water and some snacks and wear comfortable walking shoes. Once you are on the path there is not return, as the starting point and the finishing point are in opposite directions. There are rest rooms at the start. My children had fun and my in-laws despite their advanced age finished the path and were delighted with the expedition. The sights are invigorating and absolutely beautiful. It was definitely different from visiting monuments that Spain is usually famous for. It is a hidden gem of a place.
It was an early morning start but we were picked up by a very friendly guide called Anna and taken on a comfortable coach. With lots of scenery to enjoy on the way and interesting local info from our guide in English & Spanish. It does take a while to get to and from the actual Caminito by foot but that's understandable as this is a natural attraction. Everything was explained by Anna, who was just lovely. Nearby if we needed her but also left us to explore. The walk it self was spectacular. A little scary at times but very safe and secure. They have done a great job setting this up and allowing us to access such a place of natural beauty. It's not really for those with walking problems or fear of heights but if you can manage it, go for it, it's well worth it!
The trip was a great way to see this amazing spot. Pick up was easy. Susanna was a lovely guide. Explaining the history on the bus was a good use of time. Because she was explaining in three languages it was difficult to get all the history in. Along the trail we heard other tours talking about the Nazi connection and the railroad link. If there’s not time to do this on the bus maybe while we are waiting at the restaurant. Going to the restaurant after the Caminito Del Ray was not a highlight for us as the trip home took so long, almost 3 hours because we had to drop everyone off along the way. I think going straight home would have been better.
Ours was a last minute booking, literally the day before. The entire trip was well planned, the guides both knowledgeable and the complimentary beverage at the end was just the right thing at the right time! Great thanks to the guides, Guido and Amanda and the bus driver, Valeriano
An amazing day out from start to finish. Anna our superb and attentive guide spoke at least 5 languages, which helped all the different nationalities. The Caminito Del Rey experience is one I never will forget! AWESOME - just do it.
