Full description

After leaving the Costa del Sol and Malaga, continue along a scenic route with local vegetation such as orange trees, olive trees, and cork oak and the white village of Ardales and Cuevas del Becerro.

Arrive at Setenil de las Bodegas, one of the most beautiful and original white villages in the province of Cádiz. Take advantage of your free time to enjoy this peculiar town. Visit the houses embedded under the rocks of the precipice and sit down for a coffee.

In Ronda, arrive at the bus station before continuing on foot and enjoy a guided tour of the main sights. A walking tour in the romantic town center with its churches, mini-palaces, and Spain's oldest bullring, offers plenty to uncover.

Enjoy the incredible views of the Puente Nuevo, which crosses the “Tajo” (the Cut) on the Guadalevin river where you'll taste a local Ronda wine on a terrace with an exclusive view of the Tagus Bridge.

The Palacio Mondragón, also known as Palacio del Marqués de Villasierra, is, without doubt, an interesting visit, being a landlord Palais with Arabic gardens, but it is also the Archeologic Museum of Ronda, with interesting pieces proving the antiqueness of the city.

Enjoy your free time to explore the city at your own pace.

The tour was organized very well. For me it started at 8.30 am in Malaga and finished there at 5.30 pm. After Malaga there weren't any more stops to pick up other people. Ana was a very informative and enthusiastic guide and did an excellent job explaining everything in Spanish, French and English. First we stopped at Setenil de Bodegas where we stayed for around 45 minutes because one doesn't need long for the main attraction. The stop in Ronda was much longer around 4,5 hours. After the tour with Ana we had 2 hours time on our own. She gave everyone small radios so we could hear her well and she didn't need to shout. The radios were a wonderful idea! Thanks for a great day in sunny Andalusia!

We were told that we would split into two groups for the guided tour in Ronda, but only one local guide showed up, so all 49 of us followed the same guide, who gave the tour in three languages. The guided tour was not informative at all, with the guide repeating (even in the same language) that Ronda was at the center of Andalusia, so people traveled from all cities to there, and that it was really "crowdy" (sic) that day.

The experience was supposed to take 8 hours, but it was longer for us. 13 hours from the time we got on the bus in Mijas until we got off it at the same place. It should be stated at the time of booking that the times do not apply to those who get on early. That was the only negative and luckily we didn't have time to pass.
