A jam packed day of sightseeing. The tour of the sherry distillery was very interesting and the horse show amazing (although wish it could have been longer). The boat ride over to Cadiz takes in some of the industrial sites of the area. There's not much to do in Cadiz apart from browse the shops and have lunch, but the coach tour round the town afterwards was interesting. The scenery during the whole trip was breathtaking. Full marks to all the guides for being so multilingual. The only critisism I have is that they switch languages so seamlessly you end up listening to the whole narration, even if not in your own language - this can get very tiring, and then you end up missing a sentence or two in your own language. It would also save time during the tour of Williams and Humberts if there was only one language group - there's so much information to take in that the trip takes double the time if the guide covers two languages, and then it becomes rushed and the tasting and shopping is curtailed. The only other downside is that if you join the tour from the east of the country (Torremolinos, as I did), it can take 2 hours to complete the pick ups - it can get quite tedious (and there was a coach swap on my trip too); however, the coach was very comfortable and the scenery gorgeous. The highlight has to be the horse show.
This was the only option to get from Malaga to Cadiz and back for one day. It is available only once per week. The Jerez experience while a first class was a clear bonus for me. The guide was very entertaining and spoke three foreign languages, pretty fluently by the way. Given the long distance to be covered, everything was quite well planned and there was lunch possibilities for those interested (as well as short breakfast and late afternoon break). Pricing seems very competitive.

We had a great guide. She pointed out the bulls running in the fields and the history and culture surrounding them. The tour of the sherry factory was very interesting. The horse show was a nice piece of culture. We did not see much else in Jerez, but the boat ride was pleasant. We could have used more time in Cadiz. We really had time for lunch and an hour to walk around the old town. It had lots of narrow streets intersecting at odd angles. We had a good bus tour of the rest of Cadiz so it is an interesting city. I enjoyed where we had our out and returngoing and returning rest stop, very Spanish and fun to watch the people.
cadiz was very nice, you need to stay loner there to enjoy the city
This was overall a very enjoyable trip.The guide was very good and was punctual and all ran smoothly. The winery and horse show were excellent - a good balance and the wine guide gave enough detiail to remain interesting rather than being too technical. We had however a very long day picked up in Malaga at 6.40 back at 10pm. We would have liked hotel pick up but overall very memorable.
the transfer take too long and the confirmation from viator did not come to the local agency and ı had to make international calls which cost me money
We spend more time on the bus picking up people and dropping them off ,we got picked up from Torremolinos at 7:05 am and were dropped off 9;30 pm. My advice if you are staying in Torremolinos don't go .
Jerez and Cadiz is beautiful!! The excursion itself was really nice. The guide didn't say too many things of the sights, almost nothing (!) during the whole excursion. We had the accommodation in Málaga and they picked up us first in the morning. Then we were driving through the coast picking up everybody, stopping at every corner. On the whole, the journey to Cadiz took 4 hours, and back 4 hours again! We had to get up early and we were the last who left the bus at 8:30 in the evening. It was horrible!!! 8 hours only on the bus. I wouldn't go again because of this.
Was a very long day as we were based in Malaga so were picked up at 6.40am , returning after 9pm.We're disappointed to only have a 5 minute drive around Jerez . This was not obvious from the itinerary and should be in the publicity for the tour.the sherry tasting was good although you only get a 15 minute horse show with one guy and one horse. This is at the bodega. Boat trip to Cadiz was fine although there wasn't much at the lunch stop, Puerto Santa Maria,as you are dropped there at siesta time. Cadiz is beautiful and well worth the long day. However our big disappointment was the guide. His information was limited, instructions unclear and ability to communicate effectively with his clients disappointing. (This was not down to his language skills but his attitude) .He was just going through the motions and did nothing to make us want to book with this company again.We felt we knew more about the area than he did but wanted to know so much more of the rich history of the region , hence the decision to take the trip initially. The publicity material needs to mention the possible length of day, whistle stop drive around Jerez and actual nature of the horse display.
