Fantastic walk, stunning scenery and perfect weather. We thoroughly enjoyed this amazing walk. Climbing out of the village up through the olive groves following the water course and then emerging into open areas with clear views for miles around. Thank you for showing us this fantastic walk. Looking forward to our next walk with you.

Fabulous walks at just the right level of pace and challenge. Amazing scenery and great variety of walks. Phil and Simone are excellent hosts. The food prepared by Simone is wholesome and delicious. This was our first walking holiday but will definitely be back. A great way to de stress and get away from everything.

2nd trip with Active Andalus having spent spent 2 days walking last year and rapidly booked again for Christmas week 2019. The week really exceeded expectations. Glorious walking / hiking in the Sierras north of Malaga and into Granada, expertly guided as always by Phil. El Chorro, and also the walk from Frigliana stood out for me. All walks perfectly paced with time to take in the magnificent views, a stop for a bite to eat, and watch the griffon vultures / egyptian eagles soaring in the valley below... Great start to each day with wonderful breakfast / a coffee en route to the walk / and a stop for delicious tapas on homeward journey. Ensure to leave room for Simones delicious 3 course evening meals...

This was my 2nd Christmas with Phil & Simone of Active Andalus and it most definitely won't be the last.. Fabulous food cooked by Simone which sets you up for the walking. A good selection choice for breakfast with enough to make up your lunch with. The walks are scenic & varied. Phil has a great way of judging your fitness level with regular stops to catch your breath on the tough ascents. There's always tapas & drinks at the end of the walk before heading back for the 3 course evening meal. It's relaxed, homely & the rooms are a delight with the mountainous views.

Hi Jules, It was great to see you again this Christmas, and as we did enjoy another week of great weather, it made the walks that much more enjoyable. The walks were a little tougher than last years, where the extra effort was rewarded with great views and scenery, especially on the Arabic Steps and the walk across the Rio Chillar to Frigiliana, but more than compensated by the food at the end of each day! Looking forward to catch up again next Christmas, and some more walking, drinks and tapas. Phil

This is my third walking trip with Active Andalus, and it was another fabulous experience. The 3 walks that Phil chose were really varied; each one special in its own way. We all had different levels of hill walking experience, but Phil chose walks that catered for all our apetites for fun and challenge. He has a vast knowledge of flora and fauna and everything Andalusian, and everything is planned to the last detail, leaving you to just relax and enjoy the scenery. Simone’s food is delicious, and is very welcome after a day out in the hills. If you are thinking of going walking in Andalusia, do it with Acive Andalus; you’ll have a fantastic time. The return trip is a given Phil!

Hey Jules, We do try our best to keep it fun and exciting, especially if you've already been walking with us before. So glad you enjoyed the food, although It's best not to plan to go on a diet when you stay with us!!! Look forward to seeing you back with us in April, hopefully without the full waterproof gear!!! Warm regards Phil
