This was a great day tour. Our guide, Michel, was competent, pleasant and knows the area very well. Highly recommended..
This was one of our best days in Spain! Antonio was an excellent guide and we learned and saw a lot. The lunch was delicious and the caves were spectacular! Recommend to anyone visiting Granada.
As we hadn't planned staying any further south than Granada this trip was a good opportunity to see a bit more of Spain. There were many olive trees and orchards on the journey down. We stopped at the whitewashed town of Salobrena, walked up to the castle and were treated to an amazing view. We then went to the caves, I have visited many caves and these were some of the best I have seen due to their size, there were a number of huge caverns.
After stopping in the picturesque town on Nerja we then stopped to eat lunch at a restaurant on the beach. Lunch was included in the price and we could order beer, wine, sangria, a main meal and sides. It was a great meal. There were only 5 of us on the tour, 2 of us spoke no Spanish and 3 were elderly people who spoke no English. We all ate together and had a very good time notwithstanding the language barrier. We then visited another beautiful beach where we could walk off some of the lunch. This was a relaxing tour, we were never rushed and the time in each location was just enough.
Fantastic tour! Our guide was great and the driver was also helpful to fill in English as needed. We got more history from this tour than I expected and I thoroughly enjoyed free time on the beach. Would recommend.
We had a great guide who took us to more places than listed on the itinerary. It was a very enjoyable trip, would highly recommend!
Good value. Stunning beaches, friendly locals, breathtaking tour of the caves. Guides were
knowledgeable and paella lunch was delicious.
A super, enjoyable and very interesting day, that included more than we expected. An excellent guide (Jose -Luis). All the places we visited were interesting and different. Very good Paella lunch!!
A wonderful day out with the Nerja caves being quite fascinating. Our guide, Michael, (a Dutch young man with impeccable English) was delightful and patently obviously loved the Tropical coast which was infectious. The lunch on the beach of a superb freshly made Paella was a gastronomic treat!
The tour guide was excellent, he had a lot of initiative and a beautiful bubbly personality. I love the stop at the restaurant overlooking the ocean for lunch and the PAELLA was super EXCELLENT! I enjoyed this TROPICAL COAST and CAVES OF NERJA DAY TRIP TOUR VERY MUCH, the MOST...next to the ALHAMBRA Tour.
Extremely interesting history pertaining to the Caves discovery. Some beautiful old formation.
The Tropical Coast with the white Andalusian houses on steep mountains is a sight to behold.Our guide was just brilliant! He was knowledgeable and made sure we saw, walked, tasted and experienced the Andalusian coast albeit for a day!
It was a thoroughly fabulous trip!
We loved this tour! Beautiful area of Spain. The guides were helpful and provided a well organized tour. Lunch was lovely! Paella was great!
The coast is absolutely breathtaking. Our 10-year old daughter loved the beach and the caves. We wish we had more beach time though.
The caves were amazing, the coast was beautiful, and the guide was incredibly nice - felt like going on a trip with a family friend, instead of a traditional tour. We were able to spend as much time as we wanted in the caves, and still had plenty of free time to explore the small beach towns.
Did not take this tour because not enough people signed up. Instaed took Cordoab trip which was fantasctic!!
Even through there was a bit of a communication problem on their end and thus they picked us up late after letting us wait for 1 hr the trip itself was awesome. The caves were impressive, the views were great, the seashore time was wonderful and the paella lunch was out of this world! I mean it was good! I mean I dream about that paella. Yum! Anyway the tour took us to 3 different villages and we had time on the beach in 2 of them and my only regret is that there was not more time. So this tour just needs 1 more hr added to the length of it so allow for more swim time.
We had the most wonderful guide! He picked us up at our hotel; then we proceeded on our journey. We had just the right amount of time at each stop. He was a very good driver and very informative about each stop. Lunch was delicious, and the scenery was spectacular! Thank you for a wonderful day!
You get more with this trip than the description indicates. You see all that is described and more. The cave and tropical coast portion is actually in the morning, followed by a nice included paella lunch by the sea. On the way back to Granada, you get a bonus in the form of a stop at a 4th-century processing plant for salt fish. The plant is set in a marvelous park containing about 30 truly stunning sandstone sculptures by the same artist, all set among unusual tropical trees from all over the world.
A must do if you are in the area for more than 3 days -- a relaxing break from the glory of Alhambra but beautiful in its one right.
The Nerja caves were amazing and we had several interesting stops along the way which were great to see. Antonio was a good guide - translating everything between English and Spanish. I was not impressed with the planning/organization of the trip. We were picked up at 8:30 am and lunch was planned at 2 pm and we weren't served until after 3 pm. That was way too long to wait for lunch. Also - we have a few vegetarians and the options for vegetarians were not appropriate - a lettuce salad or fish.
The Tropical Coast and Caves of Nerja was an excellent trip. Included in the trip were visits to Salobrena and Nerja, both of which were attractive.
The tour guide was very helpful and pleasant and also knew the detail of the places very well.
We had opportunity to take a number of photographs, which will remind us of the trip.
We found it very useful to be picked up at our hotel by the tour guide.
We would suggest that, due to the number of occasions steep climbs were involves, that this is advertised as part of the description of the trip, so that customers may take this into consideration when choosing.
