What people are saying about Antequera

Had a great time, Jose Miguel is a good guide, driver and photographer. He's enthusiastic and knows what he's talking about. The views are amazing. Unfortunately we didn't do the 3km hike as said in the description. We only did the 1.5km as this was more beautiful or maybe some other reason? Please change the description cause we were up for a bit of a hike. However definitely worth it. After the hike we saw the incredible dolmen. Oh and the mountain goats were cool!

Amazing trip! Our guide José Miguel was very friendly and helpful. He explained a lot about the place and guided us through one of incredible routes. I really recommend this trip. The view is wonderful, also it’s very peaceful and quiet. It was a great pleasure to visit this natural park. After our route we visited the dolmens. It was very interesting!!!

Nice trip done through a coincidence nature reserve with our enthusiastic guide/personal photographer José Miguel, he can tell a lot about the area, that's great
