Excellent day with Antonio our guide who was very helpful, always smiling and full of information. I would have liked a couple of stops to photo the amazing vistas. Nonetheless a good day touring to a remote and spectacular area.

We loved this tour! It was a great break from the hustle and bustle of town. Antonio, our guide, was fun, well informed and spoke excellent English. We made plenty of interesting stops for photo ops beautiful scenery and hill towns and sightseeing along the way. The high point was a lovely lunch which gave us an opportunity to talk with other guests about their native countries and travels in Spain.

The guide was excellent and the quality of the places visited outstanding. Loved the ham factory and the lunch. My husband brought along a small scooter and Michael was super in accommodating his needs. We have some fantastic pictures and enjoyed the others on the tour. Just five of us in a new van was very relaxing.

An excellent day trip from Granada if you don't have a car.
The pick up worked well in the morning and we had a good group of people of many languages. We were the only primary English speakers even though the tour was listed as English. The tour guide made sure to include us in everything, and it went well. We enjoyed the ham-factory tour as this was something we had never seen before. The lunch was huge and more food than we could eat, although it was a bit late (almost 2:30pm) for us. The views are great from these small towns, and it was an enjoyable day.

This was an excellent day trip. The tour guide was great with plenty of information. We saw so many of the towns and the lunch was fun. The driver was also great as the roads are very high up. More time in the towns would have been nice but overall a wonderful trip.

The tour was worth the money. Hotel pick up was efficient and well organised. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The mountains were just amazing and the white villages picturesque. I really recomment it.

A very touristy but extremely scenic drive high up into a fascinating area. Lovely guide, huge lunch of local food - overall excellent value. Though the trip was initially cancelled due to lack of numbers, efficient voice mail alerted us to changes, and the pick-up arrangements worked perfectly.
