Great tour!! Very friendly and knowledgable guide Paco who also gave us some suggestions on where to eat and a bit more history of the city. Both Frigiliana and Nerja are gorgeous cities, we enjoyed walking through the streets of white painted homes with doors in different tones of blue, felt like being in a small Greek town. Bus was very comfortable. We recommend it!

The trip is worth the price, the views will remain in your memory for a long time, the guide is friendly and very knowledgeable. He answered all our questions. Sightseeing at an appropriate pace and, on the plus side, in a small, intimate group. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Amazing, we went to Frigiliana aroun 10am so it was still quiet and very peaceful. Frigiliana, Nerja and Nerja caves were breathtaking. It was enough time to explore the little cities and we got really cool VR experience about the caves! Really worth it!

The caves were impressive and our guide was very informative. A terrific day! I would highly recommend!

Very satisfactory, both for the guide and for the content.
