Costa del Sol, Spain
Having been the day before on a Seville tour we were already aware of what sort of tour to expect. Again we spent 3 hours picking up people from different hotels from very early morning. 10 min before getting to Ronda we finally had a 20 min break. We were traveling with our 2 year old daughter and there was another couple with 2 small kids so we were really looking forward to finally getting out of that bus for a little break. This time we were going to be divided into 2 groups: English-German and Spanish-French, we thought ourselves lucky that even though we asked for a guided tour in English we could also speak Spanish and that group was smaller but once we arrived in Ronda the lady took off with the Spanish-French people. We never heard neither of the guide say anything to separate the groups when we got off the bus so end up stuck with the bigger group. Fortunately this time our guide Paco explain a lot and said more of Ronda than our guide in Seville but repeated himself so many times that it was a bit of a nightmare hearing the same thing over and over again in each 4 languages. We loved Ronda and Paco himself was pretty good taking us around. We had a lovely lunch but didn't have time to have a bit of a walk around on ourselves. When we got bak to the pick up point the bus was already there. Even though Paco said in 4 different languages to sit back in the same seats we found a couple on our seats and Paco not helping send us to the back of the bus. I found them a bit inconsiderate specially with us who have the kids that every time had to pick the pushchair and place the kids, they most of the time left us behind i.e when on our way back we stop at Marbella to see the statues of Dali, even though we move fast to keep up when we looked around we couldn't see anyone from the group and have to ask a local where the statues were. Once back on the bus we haven even reach our last seat at the back of the bus and the bus was already moving.
Costa del Sol, Spain
We spent 3 hours to get there most of it was picking up people from hotels. We asked and booked for an english speaking guided tour and ended up with a Spanish, English, German and French guided tour. We thought that once we got to Seville we were going to be put into different groups according to the languages but that wasn't the case. We end up with Maria our tour guide speaking small sentences in all four languages, so it was very frustrating! We arrived at Seville around 11:30 am and left around 4pm. We had about two hours for ourselves for lunch and a walk around, unfortunately we picked the wrong restaurant and because the awful service it took us all 2 hours to have lunch and on top of that the food was mediocre. All in all we have a guided tour for about 2 and half hours and only saw the Plaza Mayor, walked through the Juderia to the Cathedral and walked inside the Cathedral, all this in four languages. It's a shame because I choose this tour after experiencing a really good time on a tour around the South of France.
