Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Ronda and El Tajo Gorge Day Trip with Wine Tasting from Malaga. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The famous bride and gorge were incredible and we would certainly do the trip again. The bull ring was also interesting and our guide, Damien, was great. The only negative is that we were the first on the bus in the city center and it took about another 1 1/2 hours to pick up everyone else in the resorts west of Malaga. The process was repeated in reverse on the way back.
The trip I took to Ronda was terrific. It was all day and worth every minute. MRonda is a most unusual place with buildings perched on top if the gorge, but it is so worth seeing. Out tour guide was terrific andnv very informative also. A must, don't miss this tour.
A must see in Andalucia. It could have been much better if it wasn't fr the hotel pick-up in Torremolinos, Benalmádena and Marbella... they picked me up in Malaga at 7:00 AM and we took the road to Ronda at aboiut 9:45 AM... that's extremely bothering, especially that you do it again on your way back to Malaga
Probably the highlight excursion of our holiday. Comfortable clean bus. We appreciated that we were picked up at our hotel in Marabella rather than travel to Malaga as well as dropped off at the end. Ronda and the Gorge were fabulous. A special unexpected treat was snow on the upper mountains.
What a beautiful city and a beautiful tour! The countryside is breath-taking. We loved every minute of it. A great tour!
The tour was very enjoyable but it made for a very long, tiring day having so many pickups. We would hesitate to book another trip because of this. Otherwise, Damien our tour guide was pleasant and informative.
Our trip to Malaga where we stayed in Marbella for 5 nights was great! We did a day tour to Seville and to Ronda. While Seville was forgettable Ronda was beautiful! Ronda is a quaint small town with mentionable history and scenic beauty! We fell in love with Ronda and could have done with a two day trip!
This is a wonderful tour! The scenery up the mountain and the El Tajo Gorge were amazing. Our group really enjoyed the stop at the local winery, where the wine tasting was "on tap", pour what you want and drink what you can in 15 min! We really enjoyed seeing the Plaza de Toros bullring and its museum, so that we could learn more about this part of Spanish culture. We had a chance for photos in the bullring which was fun! The tour description says it's a 90 min bus ride, but they picked us up in Malaga at 7:00 AM and stopped at about 20 hotels, inching along the coast, and arriving in Ronda at 11:15 am. Since we did not want a 4 hour return bus ride, we left the tour at 3 pm and paid for a public bus to take us from Ronda to Malaga in 90 min.
The scenery was spectacular on the way to Rhonda. Rhonda is a beautiful and charming town situated on a gorge with a bull ring and other historic buildings well worth seeing.
Ronda is a beautiful town to visit with gorgeous views of the old and new bridges in the gorge and the wine tasting session was an interesting experience to try the different types of wines produced in the region. The only negative point is that the pick up time in Malaga at 7am was too early as the next couple of hours were spent picking up the various participants from different hotels along the costa del sol before actually embarking on the journey to Ronda. It will be a long day trip as you will be the last to be dropped off at Malaga, probably around 730 pm or later.
This tour was very good. Ronda is a BEAUTIFUL town and if you come to Malaga or around you have to go and visit. The guide was very knowledgeable, maybe too much, since we were several nationalities on the bus and he ended up saying the same explanations in English, French, Spanish and Italian. Imagine a full day having to hear everything 4 times in 4 different languages. It was tiring for the guide but also really tiring for us. Other than that, the tour was nice and we also had some time to walk around by ourselves. Few words about the wine tasting: don;t expect too much, it's just a small little place where they do wine in Ronda, nice but not exceptional. We were there for 30 minutes and that's it.
Ronda was beautiful and a wonderful day trip. The town has so much to see and do and my group of 11 had a wonderful day there. My only real complaint was that the website said it was a 1.5h drive and we ended up picking up so many other people we were on the bus for an additional 2 hours before starting our trek to Ronda. 3.5 hours is a big difference that the indicated 1.5 hours. We had two members get car sick on the bus as well because of the driving and they wouldn't unlock the bathroom on the bus for use. Just keep that in mind when you're thinking about timing for the day.
The trip was excellent. Would like to have had an hour to look in the cute shops on the cobble stone streets. We did the tour had an hour for lunch and had to get back on the bus. Lots of driving, but all in fall would recommend it to everyone.
Ronda was fantastic, the view and the city, as well. It was a little bit disturbing that the guide was talking in 6 languages. A maximum of 3 languages would have been enough. We also went to visit the centre of Marbella. Although it i s nice, but I would have preferred to stay more in Ronda, because this way, we had to hurry up there and Ronda is much more beautiful that Marbella. Moreover in the determined programme Marbella is not even included!!
It was good but only 4 hours there, no time to walk around and waste time a lot to pick up other groups in each meeting point.
ronda was beautiful...the wine was bad....the additional four hours we sat on the bus while we picked up / dropped of other passengers was bad....
Ronda is worth seeing that is for sure but I must admit I was taken a back with the amount of time taken up picking up and dropping off people. This should be spelled out so that one knows what one has signed up for. The drive up to Ronda and the sights are beautiful. Steady, ongoing info to engaged the visitor and make them feel the wonders they are seeing would be recommended.
From Malaga: left at 7am to get to Ronda at 11am. Once there, quick guided tour of the main points. 1h45min free time, Left at 15h. For the price, not worth the time we had to wait to pick people up on their hotels on the way there...
Ronda was a lovely place and drive up mountain was breathtaking. However the trip info said it was a 1.5 hour trip and we would be back at 5 pm. We happen to be on the first stop in Malaga at 7:10. It was 3 hours of picking up people and another hour to Ronda. 4 hours of on the bus and no bathroom stop or coffee break until almost at Ronda. More info needs to be written about this on website. I have dietary restrictions and didn't bring enough food for a 4 hour bus ride. I didn't see the need to stop at Marbella on the way back. Everyone on the bus was very tired by this point and just wanted to get back to hotels. I would probably have chosen the Morroccan trip if I had known I would have been 4 hours on bus. As well, I did email asking about exact address of pick up, and I received no response. Luckily we found the spot. It was a 12 hour day for us.
This was a good tour however it entailed 2 1/2 hours of hotel pickups, so we (the first pickup) were on the bus for 2 1/2 hours before we even started on our way to Ronda and the reverse was the same on the way home. The tour of Ronda and the Gorge was about 5 hours, with an additional 5 hours of pickups and drop offs.
