We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! We were in a small group of 8 people which was wonderful to have more individualized attention. Our guide Jose is an excellent driver and made us feel safe on the very narrow streets of Alora which was beautiful! After tapas we made the journey to CAMINITO del Rey which is quite extraordinary…the views are breathtaking and even though I tend to be afraid of heights I felt very comfortable and confident throughout the narrow pathways. Thank you to our very informative guide Jose…we appreciate all the time you spent with us and the knowledge you shared of these beautiful areas! Lisa and Valerie

It was amazing performance: live, passion, energy... I was just impressed by that flow, a lot of emotions catch me. I have visited few places with flamenco performance during my stay in Seville, but this is definitely the best. I am not a fun of flamenco, but here I saw it as an art. Highly recommend!

It was sooo good! Perfect for a first/second day in Malaga. Our Guide - James was more than wonderful! We had one, small issue with a bike but it was solved immediately. Thank You 🙌🏻
