We highly recommend this informative and pleasant walking tour with Pablo as the guide. You will be treated to sights and activities of his hometown and the country area where he and his family live. We would do it again.

Our tour led by Pablo our very friendly and knowledgable guide, led us literally up the garden paths of Nigueles. We walked beneath the magnificent mountains in the fertile valley. We tasted our way through the fruits of summer and the photos speak for themselves....More

During our vacation we learned a great deal about Spain through art and architecture, but Pablo's tour brought history to life in a walk through one, beautiful small town. From Moorish irrigation to survival during Franco's rule, the past became apparent as we hiked along...More

Thoroughly enjoyable walk through beautiful countryside. Interesting insight into the local small scale agriculture, vegetable and olive growing. Also saw the intricate irrigation system originally put in place in Moorish times. Pablo is a friendly and informative host - we would highly recommend this tour....More
