None

Its a poor part of Spain that relies on tourism so by being there one benefits the local economy

It was well organised and the walking instructions were good. The hotels were all very good transfer arrangements worked well

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We've brought back many good memories, but the standout is the day's hike from Benaojan to Villaluenga, crossing varied and beautiful scenery with wonderful views. We stopped in the lush Libar valley for our picnic lunch, sitting among wild flowers and watching birds flit about. In late April - early May the weather can be unpredictable - we did have some rain - but who cares when you've got the flowers, butterflies, birds and birdsong?

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Use the map as well as the written directions. Have a meal at the Casa de la Piedra in Grazalema - best food of the vacation!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It must have benefited local people in that all but one of the hotels, restaurants and bars we used seemed to be run/owned by Spaniards.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We enjoyed it very much and would consider returning to the area. We would certainly use our tour operator again; when our flight from the UK was cancelled due to fog, forcing us to postpone the vacation by a fortnight, top man Dan Shaffrey swiftly managed to reschedule the entire vacation and at no extra cost.
