Loved Frigiliana. It was an enchanted city and really beautiful lanes to walk by. We surely needed more time there. We liked our driver and guide in that place. However the English speaking guide inside Nerja caves did not know fluent English although she was trying very hard we did not understand what she spoke.

Very nice trip to Nerja, enough time to explore the village with the museum and the 'Balcon de Europa' before visiting the cave itself. Lots of advice from the driver / guide

We had a problem with the voucher ... because it was not what we had paid, but we called the company and they solved the problem

The guide's performance was excellent. The fantastic cave, as well as the towns of Frigiliana and Nerja.
