Full description

After leaving the Costa del Sol and Malaga, continue along a scenic route with local vegetation as orange trees, olive trees and cork oak and the white village of Ardales and Cuevas del Becerro. Arrival to Setenil de las Bodegas, one of the most beautiful and original white villages in the province of Cádiz.

The incredible views of the Puente Nuevo, which crosses the “Tajo” (the Cut) on the Guadalevin river where we will have a taste of a local Ronda wine on a terrace with an exclusive view of the Tagus Bridge. Walking tour in the romantic town centre, with its churches, mini-palaces and Spain's oldest bullring, offers plenty to uncover.

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

Our tour guide spoke wonderful English and was hilarious throughout the bus rides and in Setenil de las Bodegas and Ronda. We stopped at Setenil de las Bodegas first for a walk through the tiny village and had about 25 minutes of free time to grab a quick snack. Our next stop was in the larger town/city of Ronda, where we had more time on the walking tour, plenty of opportunities for photos, and a nice glass of wine on a hotel terrace right next to the Ponte Nueva. We had a couple hours of free time after the walking tour before meeting back at the bus station. Directions were very clear and nobody was lost.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. It was a really long day - over 10 hours from Torremolinos but it was so worth it! I could say I barely felt the driving part because the drive was like a tour itself, our amazing guide Eduardo was giving loads of information about Malaga, Ronda, surrounding area and history, I’ve picked up so much amazing information and really felt his love for this area. We did loads in one day and I thoroughly enjoyed all of it - saw places I would have not visited by myself. The coach was clean and the driver was very professional and I felt save throughout the journey. I felt that the time in Ronda was perfect to visit the old city, have lunch, take pictures and even do some souvenir shopping! This tour was above and beyond my expectations!

It was chaotic at meeting point. We arrived as instructed but couldn’t find the bus. No tour leader or anyone at the meeting point and we ended up almost getting into a wrong bus. The bus came late, we finally got into the right one. The schedule of tour was tight, wish we could spend more time in Ronda. The tour itself is well organized and tour leader is very experienced.
