From Costa del Sol & Malaga: Caminito del Rey Guided Tour
- Duration options: 8 - 9 hours
Your minibus will pick you up from Torremolinos, Marbella or Estepona and we will drive you to Costa del Sol. Once in Gibraltar, our minibus will take us to all the major sights, including Punta Europa and Las Cuevas de San Miguel. Punta Europa, on the edge of the rock, has a lighthouse and stunning views of the African mountains, just across the water. Cuevas de San Miguel has more of an edge. Though now a major tourist attraction, it was once a refuge for soldiers during wars and a secret passageway for those looking to escape. After the tour, we will give you the time to explore the shopping district of Calle Real and surrounding areas.
Brilliant experience. The coach driver in Gibraltar was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable and knew what he was on about.
You'll tour will begin as your meet your bus in the center of Málaga, near el Corte Inglés, or elsewhere along the Costa del Sol. From there you will take a coach to Gibraltar, traveling in air-conditioned comfort complete with reclining seats, WiFi, and USB ports. Throughout the journey, your guide will provide you with information about interesting things to do and see once having arrived at your destination. Once having passed through customs, your coach will drive inside Gibraltar before stopping in the city center to park.

Your bus will return at around 3:00 PM, with your route back being conducted via the same road. You will arrive to the Costa Del Sol around 5:00 PM, marking the end of your tour.

We were surprised that the tri included a minibus tour and entrance to the nature reserve. We dripped off at the caves and clim ed up on our own - great opportunity to explore! Time was limited and the schedule was a bit unclear in the beginning, but we truly loved Ales and his personality. Thank you!

Day trip to Gibraltar, just about enough time there. We did our own thing there and had time to walk to cable car and go up to the top and walk around all the main sites at the top that we wanted to see and walk back to town. Transport very comfortable and spot on time. Other pick-ups obviously add time to the journey but not too bad.

We were disappointed with the multilinguality of the guidances. We expected pure English. Now German dominated.
Begin with a pickup by air-conditioned coach in Costa del Sol. Sit back and relax on the journey. Admire the beauty of the picturesque streets during the free time you will have in Setenil de las Bodegas. Feel the relaxing atmosphere and walk around at your own pace.
Back in the bus, head to Ronda with your guide and enjoy a panoramic tour. See the Almocabar Gate, the Church of the Holy Spirit, and the Church of Santa Maria la Mayor, among others. Visit the Maestranza bullring on your own, one of the oldest ones in Spain and considered the cradle of traditional bullfighting.
Home of the famous Goyesca bullfighting style, enjoy a visit to its museum and see its typical clothing. You will have free time to visit and to have lunch on your own. Meet your guide back again for the return trip to Costa del Sol.
Loved the visit to Ronda but could've done with just one toilet break before arriving. Also would've liked to have more free time at the bull ring. Overall was a fantastic time and very friendly guide and driver
