“Extremely scenic walk in great company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We did the Hidden village walk to El Achebuchal which is around a 3 hour gentle hike up from Frigiliana. The wildflowers were truly spectacular - sweet peas, cistus, sedum,pimpernels,alyssum,rosemary,thyme and many many more absolutely carpeting the hills, and walking next to orange, lemon and avocado groves was a joy. John's knowledge of the history of the area made the walk fascinating as did the great company. My husband and I have tried in the past to do several walks in the area, but have found the routes hard to find or follow. Spanish maps seem to be lacking significant detail and many routes are not way marked, so it was invaluable to have John's guidance. The other point to note if doing this route is that the cafe at Acebuchal is truly excellent, one of the best I have ever visited in the region, so no need for a packed lunch!

“A Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

A very capable and experienced guide to the local region offering a variety of walks with a commentary on the local fauna and flora all delivered in a friendly manner. John considers the fitness and ability of all clients on his walks allowing plenty of photo opportunities and rests as required.

“Great way to see beyond the sights of the cities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

After 10 days of city touring, I was getting tired of cathedrals and was beginning to put on weight. John's outing cured that in a hurry. Most of his hikes are not overly difficult and most, if not all, hikers are English speaking. The trails do not compare to those of the Alps, the Rockies, the Cascades or New Zealand, but, in their own way, they are delightful. Some of the views overlooking the Mediterranean are absolutely jaw dropping. John is a superb guide, knowledgeable and calm with a great sense of humor. Following our five- hour hike, most of us stopped off for drinks and tapas. It was altogether a great day out, with not a cathedral in sight.

“Wonderful and inspiring experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

John is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide whose easy going, but considerate style is a joy. The countryside around Frigliana is also magnificant and John's walks cater for all levels of fitness. I've done a number of walks with John and his customers are equally interesting so you get to meet like minded people also. So If you want an enjoying, healthy and exhilirating day out, then this is definitely one to go for.

“A great hike attracts great company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

A hike with John (we did the Hidden Village hike in October 2012) is a real treat.
John is a fantastic guide: knowledgeable, accommodating, with a great sense of humor and
it is no wonder that his hikes attract an assortment of delightful people. We thoroughly
enjoyed it. Do not miss one of John's hikes when you are in the Nerja/Frigiliana area -
even if you are further away in Andalusia, it's worth a trip!
