Our driver Roman spoke some German, although the tour is not offered in German in winter. That made the day especially nice, the local guide in Ronda also spoke German and gave us insider tips for Seville. Ronda is very beautiful, with its bullring, historic bridge and white houses. Because we still had some time, we were able to visit the cathedral. Only the wine tasting could be deleted from the program. We were taken into a courtyard where there were a couple of wine barrels. Everyone got a glass and could taste it, nothing was explained. When we asked if the wines could be bought, we were advised against because everything would be overpriced. After 10 minutes it was all over !!!! Unfortunately, you don't get the full view of the bridge, as it can be seen on postcards, because you would have to drive into the valley and we couldn't convince Roman about that.

The tour was really great. The walk around was great and then gives us the opportunity to mark places we will go on our own during the free time. The weather was great at that day so I was very lucky.

A great way to see the “countryside” if you don’t want to rent a car. Being off season there were only seven passengers and none of the stops were overrun by tourists.

-Driver very safe on the narrow, winding roads -Guide very attentive, makes sure the group is complete, explains a lot -great tour!

Wonderful trip for anyone wanting to learn the beauty of Andalusia!
