Enjoyed the trip. Would recommend it. It started in Malaga, at 9:40, bus was clean and comfortable. Arrived by 10:30 in Nerja, the museum is not really worth it, but it's only a short walk from Balcony of Europe. Nice views there, left there at 12:10 towards the caves. Worth visiting but I did not like that it was crowded. The lunch break (13:30-14:30) is at the restaurant outside the caves and it is a bit of a tourist trap. Do not recommend it. Next is Frigiliana, white cute village, took the scenic train ride for 3 euros/half an hour. Walked about another half hour. At 16:00 bus ride back to Malaga. Arrived almost at 17 back at pick-up point. All in all enjoyed it, the guide was hard to understand, even though he mixed english/spanish/french.
The concept and idea is great but a lot of time is spend on immigration formalities. It took around 5 hours in the bus and 2 hours in ferry. Immigration another 2 hours. The rest of the time was spend in the excursion. The journey by bus and ferry was pleasant. The Spanish guide was lazy, while the Tangier guide Hassan was absolutely amazing! Overall it was a great day spend and kids enjoyed it too!
The trip was great other than the fact the tickets said 0750 and it didn’t arrive until 0920 which we only found out after we called while waiting for ages and the other group of people waiting had no clue about this either. So definitely call before the day to confirm the time as that was so annoying. Other than that it was fab and would thoroughly recommend
A nice day in two beautiful towns. However, even though the guide was nice, the tour itself was just standard - a large bus full of people, commentary in 3 languages on the bus and just free time in each town. I would suggest doing this tour with a different company that offers touring for smaller groups if possible.
When we finally arrived there it was fantastic experience ... it took 5 hours, the guide was late showing up, then the ferry was so unorganized and time consuming, unbelievable really. But we had to laugh ( rather than cry) ! It was well worth the wait though.
