What Included in Our Nerja Day Trip?

Scenic Journey to Nerja

Your tour begins by joining your private driver for the scenic drive to Nerja.

As we drive along the Mediterranean coastline, marvel at the azure sea blending with the sky and the panoramic vistas of white villages perched on hillsides.

10 Day Private Tour: It was such a pleasure to work with Emily. Everything went off without a hitch! There were some changes either in drivers or guides but this was communicated in advance via whats app. Drivers were always on time and very professional. Our 2 favorite guides were Daniel Guia in Madrid and Luis Salas in Seville. They gave great recommendations for shopping, restaurants or sights to visit when you were on your own. We had so many wonderful experiences on our trip from the private horse show outside of Cordoba with a live Spanish guitarist to the white villages , tapas bars, walking tours of Seville, Madrid and the Alhambra. Emily was in contact all the time if needed . Sorry Emily it took so long to write this, life gets so busy and that 's why you have Guided Spain plan your trip!

Immerse yourself in a world of subterranean wonder as we venture into the Nerja Caves, one of southern Spain’s most breathtaking natural wonders.

With our expert guide leading the way, this tour takes you on a journey through time within a network of caverns stretching nearly five kilometers.

Gaze upon stalactite and stalagmite formations sculpted by nature over millions of years, creating an underground landscape of otherworldly beauty. As we delve deeper, uncover the cave’s rich prehistoric past, made evident by ancient cave paintings dating back over 20,000 years, believed to be among the oldest in the world.

Our guide will illuminate the cave’s geological features and historical significance, adding depth to your understanding of this unique environment. Marvel at the impressive stalactite column in the Cataclysm Hall, the tallest in the world, reaching a staggering height of 32 meters.

The Nerja Caves, discovered accidentally by local boys in 1959, have since become a symbol of Nerja’s natural beauty and historical richness. The sensation of walking in these caverns, under towering formations and amidst echoes of a distant past, makes the guided tour of the Nerja Caves an experience you won’t soon forget.

Fabulous Spain/Portugal trip through Emily! We booked with Emily solely after reading these reviews for a 2 week trip to Portugal and southern Spain. Never met her prior. She and her team exceeded our expectations. Every detail of the trip went smoothly and her planning was perfect for our group. Lots of guided tours intermingled with just the right amount of free time. We challenged Emily and her team with 3 generations of travelers from 18 months to upper 60's and she handled our group perfectly, such as baby seats in cars and cribs in hotel rooms. Our trip included Lisbon, Porto, Sevilla, and Madrid with day trips to Cordoba, Rhonda and and a small "white city." All in, we would highly recommend Guided Spain Tours, Emily and her team for any travel in Spain and Portugal. She also does Morocco but we didn't have time for that.
