This trip was excellent! The city is spectacularly beautiful and we got to see it all. We got to go to a wine tasting in a very old winery which was really fun and delicious and broke up what could be a tiring experience of walking around from place to place in the heat. We also got to go into the bull ring and see where the bull fights are which was a colorful mix. This was a perfect tour.
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!
Enjoyed this tour very much and seeing the outlying mountain ranges and towns and cities was beautiful and made for a nice bus ride. Great tour guide and bus driver!
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!!
Both Destination and tour in Ronda were excellent, but I would have rather taken a bus or train Malaga straight to Ronda, because travelling there and back took so long. E.g. why did we had to have a 40 min break in Marbella on the way back? People were tired and just would have liked to get back to their hotels. We had driven for only about an hour. Several people complained about this and freelance guide did not know the reason to this. And why did we have to stop several times in the morning in Torrellimos and Marbella, but only once in Malaga? It took over two hours before we could even start to head towards Ronda.
The tour was good. But the journey was advertised as under 2 hours one way. In reality it was 4 hours each way as the coach was picking up passengers. So 8 hours in the bus and 4 hours in Ronda. It is ok for the bus to pickup more passengers but it should be clearly mentioned in the advert
