Cabo de Gata - Nijar and Almeria City Tour
This tour starts in Almeria City or Port Almeria.
The tour gives you an overview of the most important sites of Almeria. First we will drive to the Cabo de Gata area, a nature reserve of volcanic origin. On the way, you will learn about Almería's greenhouse agriculture. Upon arrival at the Cape, we will make a photo stop at the lighthouse and the Sirene's reef. We will then continue to Nijar, a white washed village, well known for its handmade rugs and pottery. Usually the village is calm and quiet and we can stroll around the local square, and streets and have time for a coffee or some souvenirs. Then we will return to Almeria and continue a panoramic tour in our vehicle, up to the view point below the Alcazaba and if time allows, a walk along the historical centre. The duration of the tour is estimated in a maximum of 6 hours, and will be adapted to your preferences. In case you wish to visit the interior of the Alcazaba, we must skip Nijar.

Maike is an excellent guide. She is very fluent in English and very well informed about the history, economics and sociology of the places she took us in and around Almeria. She is quite pleasant, personable, considerate and kind-a pleasure to be with.
