    Best day of our holiday
    , Jun 2022
    at Caminito Del Ray we had such un amazing experience , incredible views , also great tour’s guide and bus driver . If u never done it ? Don’t think twice ! U won’t regret!
    Long Day but some parts were worth it
    , Jun 2022
    It wasn’t explained well that you have 2 hours in Ardales prior to arriving at the Caminito Del Rey and there is a lot of waiting around; this made for a very long day which could have been shorter. The walk itself was beautiful and definitely worth it, both of us travelling have minor mobility issues and my partner has asthma and didn’t find it too strenuous. The guide, Marcelo, on the walk was excellent and the trail was really well looked after. Make sure you go to the kiosk at the end of the trail for any snacks and drinks as it is much cheaper than the first kiosks that you will see! Remember to bring lots of water! The toilets are very limited and there is none on the trail which is 5km long.

    Bus late!!
    , May 2022
    The bus was very late to pick us up, over an hour late, this was a very negative start to the trip, however the visit to the Caminito del Rey was brillant, it has breathtaking views. The walk took over 2 and half hours to complete with a short break half way. Wear comfortable shoes, bring some water and use the toilet beforehand.

    We Booked a trip to Marbella especialy for Camanito del Rey. The bus picked us up at 7:30. We had a 3 hour bustour because they had to pick up all the other people who joined the trip. We didn't go to camanito del Rey, but first to a place Ardales. Here you had free time (?) We did not know it was part of the trip. When We finally arrived at Camanito del Rey the trip was cacelled because of hard wind. We spent the intire day (of 4 day trip) in a bus. Ofcouse the company can not change the weather, but We didn't know We had to spent a few hours in a place called Ardales, when they went to Camanito del Rey directly We could have walked it..... They said We wolde get a refund. I hope that is true

    Worth to visit - bad bus plan route
    , Mar 2022
    Caminito del Rey is great experience and really worth to visit. Organization of the trip not so great: bus route with drop of in Malaga was not ok. Good three hours on the bus from Caminito del Ray to Malaga. On the way back, bus drove first to Marbella and endet in Malaga. At the he beginning of the trip, we drove from Malaga (last pick up) to Caminito del Ray for about an hour.
    , Jun 2021
    We left from Marbella and it took 3 hours to get to Caminito del Rey as Julia Travel S.L is not the only agency operating on this tour. After 10 stops, we got there and we were the last group to enter. We did not received any priority at all, it seems that we did not have paid 50eu per person. While we were waiting to enter we found out that the entrance costs 10eu and 18eu with a guide. I highly recommend this option since they were supposed to guide us but we were a group of 40 people from different agencies with just ONE guide. At the end of the tour we met the guide and another three hours by bus to return to Marbella. In conclusion we pay 40euros only for the bus transportation in which you are frozen cold. I do not recommend it at all. If you can rent a car do it as it could take you 1 hour and not 3 to arrive there.

    Peaceful and enjoyable day
    , Feb 2020
    Wonderful, full day. Obligatory multiple pick ups, which add to the total tour time but are very convenient as opposed to finding your way to specific pick up spots. Beautiful, peaceful walk through Caminito del Rey, which was very scenic though not as hair raising as I thought it would be. Tasting was nothing but a small plate with olives, etc...for the entire bus to share. Guide and driver were very good. Tour was conducted in three languages. Hats off to anyone who speaks multiple languages. All in all, a wonderful, full day.
    Top Notch Tour
    , Nov 2019
    This was a Top Notch Experience- my friends and I loved it. If you are afraid of heights- it's not for you. Beautiful views, beautiful countryside ride to the location as well too. You are not allowed to take a walking stick or trekking pole on the walk (i checked ahead). Take snacks and water along. Some of the path is on uneven slightly rough terrain. Nothing extreme. Wear GOOD proper shoes for this adventure. Really worth while. The "tasting" thing afterword at the restaurant was not much of can buy lunch if you want. I always have snacks/food stuff with me. I highly recommend. Book early- it's very popular (i'm sure especially in summer).
    A wonderful Experience

    , Jun 2018
    The entire day was a great experience and the guide was perfect and very helpful. The stop for tasting was a waste of time as there is nothing that special to taste. Overall i was very satisfied and i loved that day and invite everyone to book with viator
    La promenade dans le...
    , May 2022
    La promenade dans le canyon est impressionnante, mais je déconseille de faire cette activité lorsqu’il fait chaud. On s’y sentait comme dans un fourneau. Si on exclut la chaleur, la promenade n’est pas très difficile, mais elle est quand même assez longue, car il faut se rendre à pied jusqu’aux gorges. L’arrêt dans un village avec la dégustation du vin est trop long, car c’est un petit village dont on a vite fait le tour. Une heure aurait été bien suffisante.
    Caminito del Rey 1 de Julio
    , Jul 2021
    -El autobús muy cómodo y limpio, el chofer un señor muy amable, los dos guías bien. -Negativo: a pesar de que Viator informa de que no recoge en la puerta del hotel, se hizo recogida en la puerta de muchos hoteles de distintos pueblos, algunos nastante ccerca de otros, por lo que la recogida de usuarios fue eterna y a la vuelta lo mismo. Se hicieron unas 10 paradas, teniendo que esperar un rato en algunas por haber llegado antes de la hora, y, sin embargo, a nosotras se nos adelantó la hora 20' También pone en las condiciones del servicio que se nos ofrecería una degustación de productos locales en Alora y eso no sucedió. Si pensaban cambiar las condiciones del servicio, estaría bien que lo indicaran previamente..

    , Jul 2019
    È stata un’esperienza bellissima, paesaggio mozzafiato! il costo del tour a mio parere un po’ caro per quello che offre dato che il singolo ingresso costa 10€, ma sembrava impossibile trovare un giorno libero prenotando online, così ho preso il pacchetto. Comunque lo consiglio sicuramente a tutti!
    Kurzfristig gebucht, alles gut gelaufen.
    , Jan 2019
    Der Ausflug war wie beschrieben sehr schön. Man hatte genug Zeit die Schlucht durch zu wandern. Ich kann es nur empfehlen.
    Belle journee
    , Sep 2018

    Wunderschönes Erlebnis
    , Jul 2018
    Die Möglichkeit den Canyon zu begehen würde ich in jedem Fall auch beim nächsten Malagabesuch wahrnehmen, da es ein tolles Erlebnis war. Die anschließende Mittagspause habe ich nicht im angesteuerten Restaurant verbracht sondern im Bergdorf. War auch ok. Die Pause wäre aber nicht notwendig gewesen, da es am Ende der des Caminto del Ray genug Stärkungsmöglichkeiten gegeben hätte.
