This is a bold claim to make when catering for a family with ages ranging from 73 to 8 years, but Antonio and his land rover certainly justified it. We were asked on the way home what we enjoyed best and each of the 7 of us had a different answer, there was so much to choose from! For me it was swimming beneath the rainbow in a warm river pool in the middle of the mountains, but also the care that Antonio's care and interest in each one of us. His skill in involving the children, giving them a hat and sling-shot each and teaching them to use them carefully, making our younger son the co-pilot and boosting him up so much and watching out for my parents on the slippy rocks as we swam. This was a authentic, hands on, all-round brilliant day. There is just not enough space to tell you all that was excellent about it. Hold on tight around the hairpin bends and find out yourselves!!

Four adults, one jeep and the wonderful Hugo, our very informative guide. We saw beautiful mountain villages, including the Smurfs' home town, had a terrific Andalucian lunch and saw the magnificent bridge at Ronda from down in the gorge - a view only seen by the very fit (but we went by jeep!) What more could you ask for? Well, apart from great views and a running dialogue, what about the sight of 8+ griffon vultures dining on a dead cow?

We are now trying to live up to Hugo's exhortation to drink more good Rioja, (they use genuine cork stoppers and thus help preserve the local environment!) Glad to help.

This was our second trip with Monte Aventura. Previously we had done the Sierra de Nieves - just as good.

Don't miss this experience - but probably not suitable for very young children.

So here we were thinking that, after 10 years holidaying in Andalucia, we had seen it all and then the guys from Monte Aventura made us think again. The trip to the Sierra de las Nieves combined adventure (what could be better for a small boy than standing up in a jeep and driving through a river?); learning about local fauna and flora; meeting "real" local people and having an excellent lunch in a mountain village. Stunning scenery too! Hugo, our guide, and Antonio brought it all to life with their deep knowledge; ideas and friendliness. They are great communicators with adults and children alike. There are few family activities that are fun for adults; teenagers and smaller children alike but this is definitely one. Don't be put off by the cost (€ 300 approx. for our family of 5). We found it well worth it for a whole day (the tour is about 8 hours) full of fun. Highly recommended.

Had a great day out with Antonio and David as we explored the mountains of the Sierra de Nieves, We learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the mountains and experienced the magnificent scenery of the mountains. Antonio's enthusiasm for nature was infectious and we went from one activity to another, enjoying every moment. The little town of Istan is a delight and the walk along the water way was a pleasant prelude to a delicious lunch. Thank you both for a lovely day in the mountains. Trevor and Linda

We would really recommend this trip. We went at the beginning of December and the scenery was still stunning. The weather was sunny but pretty cold in the mountains. Hugo was our guide and knew what he was talking about and no question stumped him. The lunch in the mountain village was excellent as well. Probably not the best for very young children or those with a fear of mountain roads! Hugo gave us a cork tree acorn and told us how to germinate it. Hugo I now have a 1cm cork tree - thank you!!!! One day I will be rich. B family, Somerset, UK
