Ronda was an unexpected gem as I had never heard of the city nor its amazing bridge. Our tour guide was great and the tour highlighted all of the sites. A wine tasting was also an unexpected extra.

We left Marbella in the pouring rain and arrived in Ronda with beautiful sunshine. So don't let the weather stop you from going. It changes quickly with altitude. Our guide was wonderful and very organized. We toured the Old section, a winery, churches and the bull ring. We then had free time to explore or eat. Highly recommend Don Miguel's Terraza. You dine perched on the edge of the gorge. Their tapas are amazing! On our return to Marbella we were treated to a tour of the old city. It was decorated for Christmas and beyond quaint. Small shops, winding pedestrian streets and many cafes made it a charming area to enjoy the evening.

I really loved it . Loads to see and loads of answers given to all of the questions. Lovely time of the year for this particular visit.

Not unexpectedly it was tiresome to make so many stops before heading up to Ronda. Also the extended stop on the return was unneeded. Most just wanted to get back to their hotels. The trip itself though was great, and the guide was very good. The driver was very skillful. The guide had good information and suggested a very good restaurant before we headed back.

What a great treasure to vista! Ronda was everything I expected it to be and more. The views from the mountain tops and Tajo Gorge are fabulous. Also, the Bullring and Bodega were wonderful additions to the whole day! Our guide was interesting and had lots of fun facts about the city itself. Highly recommended.

Fabulous. Don't drive yourself, it is quite high up with very low guard rails. Let professionals do the driving. Very good tour with a wonderful guide who did a few extra things with us. Great history and views.

Fabulous vistas of the countryside, the bridge over the gorge and the sections of town perched on the cliffs. The bullring was well worth the visit, too. It would have been nice to have more free time in the town - particularly as we had an unnecessary coffee and toilet break both coming and going - we were only 15 minutes out of Ronda both times!
