    We did book this tour reading reviews and would recommend taking this tour for the best experience. Our guide was Carlos very friendly and knowledgeable. We even got a lift to a restaurant in a nearby village by Carlos and his colleague as there was no train till late evening and helped us to take a taxi till Alora station. Carlos did provide a lot of detailed information about the place to us. This was a memorable experience passing through King's Path.

    The place is simply stunning. So so much better than we could've expected! El Caminito del Rey was recommended to us some time ago and we just wanted to get the normal admission (€10 I think) through the official website... but, as you know, el caminito is extremely popular, so it was completely booked out. I'm genuinely glad it was cos what makes this tour special is the guide! She was amazing. I have decent Spanish and there were maybe 6 or 7 Spanish speakers among us, but the rest were an international bunch (Portugal, Ireland (myself), Holland, Poland etc) and English was the universal language. This was no problem for the guide. She was so funny and energetic and informative and passionate. Basically everything you'd want from a tour guide! I'm not usually ones for guided tours, but this was just excellent. Highly recommend!!

    You should keep in mind that it will take you about an hour to get through the gates of the canyon. This is followed by an impressive journey of 2 hours with everyone wearing a white helmet. The return trip is via a 15 minute bus journey. The bus goes once every half hour and costs, despite the cost of 30 euros, still 1.15 euros. Of course no problem, but report it from now on because there were people who did not have this amount in cash. Our guide was a pleasant man who was happy to photograph you. All in all a nice trip. From now on, also add that you can park about 300 meters in front of the restaurant where you have to collect.
