Frigiliana and Nerja is really about the cave
, Sep 2019
The bus was very comfortable, the guide was super he gave the tour in 4 different language, gave very good informations, the cave is really extraordinary and a must see, there is a total of 340 steps and the day of the tour it was very humid inside the cave so it was very difficult physically when over 70 and in poor shape.
White in the mountains and white on the ocean - interesting trip. Two beautiful towns near Malaga, Frigiliana located in the mountain range with spectacular views in all directions. Some nice shops and coffee in a cool breeze. Nerja, a shoreline town with homes in all white. sitting on the the balcony of the Mediterranean sea. - Additionally next to the Nerja, is the natural caves where you can see the stalactites and the stalagmites. I understand at various times of the year there are concerts to enjoy.
Half day tour from Malaga to the centers of these two towns. When going to Nerja, take in the Caves, very well worth it, but if you mobility issues, I wouldn't recommend it, there are lots of stairs up and down. There is free time (1 hour) to have lunch on your own or just wander around, restaurant has a fantastic view.I took the little trolley train around the hilly center in Frigiliana, 3 euros, with commentary. When you get off the trolley train, take a walk up the hill to the right (away from the main restaurant that you will see overlooking the trolley train), there are some quaint little shops, but again, lots of steps.
The tour was very nice and the guide was very knowledgeable and you love that he could speak in more than two languages. When we arrived Nerja we were giving out a time to explore, stop at one of the cafés, and taking the beautiful views. In Frigiliana we were given ample time to explore. I would have liked them to also pick up in downtown Torremolino as there are many tourist in that area instead of having to travel to Malaga early in morning to take the tour.
Nerja was a good place to hang out for a couple of hours with various restaurants and nice small shops for the hundreds of visitors. Frigiliana had very little to offer a visitor besides the usual bars in which to sit, but it padded out the day. The tour guide was quite boring as he repeated information about the trip in a variety of languages the whole time we were on the road. Very tiring.
Paco was our tour guide and he was excellent and well organized. His driver was excellent too. Frigiliana was a cute white mountain town. No sights there, just the spotless whitewashed town. The caves nearby were very impressive if you don't mind 438 steps. Nerja's claim to fame is the impressive Balcony of Europe panoramic terrace above the town.
We appreciated the on time pick up and schedule.
A very nice tour and day.
Both the towns are really nice, the duration of tour was also appropriate. However, the tour guide mainly spoke in Spanish and not much in English so didn't get to know about the places that much. Also, the pick up point was slightly confusing.
