I love running this little business. It’s great fun and it keeps me fit. I have been doing it for four years and it has grown nicely during that time.
However during the last 12 months I have reached a crossroads.
I’m only one man and I can only be in one place at a time so when I have groups booked in, I have to mark my Day Walks Calendar as FULL.
Initially I was quite chuffed with the idea of having FULL marked across my website. It was like a sign of success and I was proud to show it off.
Recently though it has come to my attention that many of my return Day walking clients were disappointed that they could not walk with me because I was full with group reservations.
Some people even check my site before making their flight arrangements!

The only remedy was another guide, but who???

So I’d like to introduce my younger brother, Graham. He is a very fit lad and he is a hill walker like me and knows the routes in this area.

From September 2014 we will be introducing a program of up to six hikes a week.
Happy Hiking!!!

Four Towns..One Destination!


Nerja, Frigiliana, Maro and Acebuchal between them make this area The Capital of Hiking and Walking in Málaga. The rugged mountains, fast running rivers, stunning scenery, wildlife and flora all combine to make this region a fantastic destination for the "Active Tourist" There are great restaurants and bars, fabulous beaches and cracking mountain walks. In the Axarquia there is still a strong flavor of rural and small town Spain with its Pueblos Blancos or White Villages. We have a great selection of routes for all walkers from gentle walks in the immediate vicinity, to 20km hikes with altitudes of up to 2000 meters. I organize Guided Day Walks and Walking Holidays based on the fitness levels and stamina of the group. Walking For Pleasure, Hiking For Health! This is the ethos of our holidays.We offer a personal service and an experience of mountain life in a Natural Park area. John Keo Walking Tours is fully licensed and insured with full permission for guided hikes from the Government of Andalucía.


I am a fully qualified International Travel Consultant (IATA-UFTAA Approved) offering walking holidays for individuals and groups including airport transfers, accommodation, guided walks and packed lunches in the Sierra Almijara Natural Park. 

For fun, fitness, health and wellness, visit Frigiliana, Nerja, Maro and Acebuchal...
