Full description
After leaving the Costa del Sol and Malaga, continue along a scenic route via the white village of Ardales and Cuevas del Becerro. Make the first stop of the day at the bull and horse breeding farm, Reserva Tauro, which is located in a UNESCO-declared Biosphere Reserve, just 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Ronda. Take a tour of the farm and get close to mother cows and their calves, as well as the herd raising the foals of pure Spanish breed horses. The land on the farm is a good example of the local vegetation with olive trees and cork oaks. Then, proceed on a short drive to 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, you will arrive at the bus station before continuing on foot to discover the deepest city. Take in the incredible views of the Puente Nuevo, which crosses the “Tajo” on the Guadalevin river, and enjoy the old town, the cathedral, and the museums. Participants meet to have a glass of red wine and some snacks on a terrace with an exclusive view of the Tagus Bridge. Alternatively, use your time to discover the oldest bullring in Spain, the immense bullring of Ronda (entrance not included; audio guides provided inside the bullring). Enjoy your free time to explore the city at your own pace and ask your guide for any recommendations so you don't miss the best spots.

    Setenil de las Bodegas was nice but a maze of streets, the ticket received didn't really help, even with Google maps it was difficult, more guidance would have been welcome. Ronda was great, nice tour with lots of information and free time afterwards. Driver Antonio drove pleasantly, guide Wendy did her utmost to make it a nice day. Tip, I would drop Setenil then you have more time for Ronda because that is really worth spending even more time in.

    Pick up and drop off were smooth. Our guide was a trooper - She did the tour in 4 languages which was insane. She did an incredible job, but I wish (for her sake and other tourists) that languages could be split up and not in the same tour. We could tell that she was very tired at the end, and having to listen to information in 4 languages took up too much time. If it were in one language, I think the guide could have fit in more information and it would be more interesting. It was also interesting because the information she gave in different languages was not always consistent, so there would be different facts in other languages and it was unfortunate for those who could only understand one language. The tour was split up in Ronda, which made the experience more enjoyable now that it was only two languages. Overall though, the cities were amazing and I would recommend this trip.

    A very fun trip. The collection is given very precisely, including a pickup map. A very kind and competent guide, Annabelle, presented a lot of information about the region efficiently and in a pleasant atmosphere. In Setenil you have free time, you can go around the town and take photos, there is also time to sit for a coffee under the rock. Transfer to Ronda. Guided tours there, first a walk along the streets of the town where the guide told about its history, the program also included visiting the bullfighting arena. In addition, a vantage point and a bridge, the biggest attraction of Ronda. A lot of free time for a walk, sightseeing on your own, shopping or eating delicious tapas. Return at around 5:30 PM to Malaga. The trip is not tiring and not exhausting, for everyone. I recommend
