I booked this trip to see both cities, Ronda and Setenil de Bodegas and was not disappointed. The bus ride was very relaxing, we even stopped at a café shortly before arriving to Ronda, to grab some coffee or breakfast. In both cities our tour guide Eduardo has a lot of information about everything and could tell a lot of details. He even guided us through the bullring museum, which is wasn’t aware of that the entrance and guidance was part of the trip as well. For me personally i would prefer to have more free time but i can understand if you want to hve information about everything, wanting to see the main spots and even have access to the bullring museum it’s a good offer. :)

Good organization of the day. Vanessa our guide, juggled between the 3 languages (FR, ENGL, ESP) with great fluidity. Journeys to SETENIL and Ronda pleasant, the time passed very quickly thanks to the explanations given by Vanessa. The guided tour of Ronda (in French with Vanessa) with the arena, the bridge and the old town was very rich. Despite the bad weather, Vanessa adapted and found sheltered places. + Special mention for our driver Mr Paco who drove very well. Small downside: the free visit time of SETENIL is a little too short for my taste.

Wonderfully organized. Antonio commented well on the trip, you could plan a little more free time in Ronda, although this is a subjective opinion.

Guide was very friendly and interacted well. Would have liked a little more historical background but on the whole was very pleased

Our guides were Carmen and Antonio and they were exceptional. Antonio lived every word with which he delighted us on the tour
