The two guides (one for the bus and one in Ronda) gave us lots of interesting information and were very entertaining! The day was well paced although I would have liked more time for shopping in Ronda. I would definitely recommend.
It was a very beautiful day. The local guides very wonderful, kind, gave us time to take all the pictures we wanted, no rush. It felt really as a private tour. We had no wine tasting, but we visited 2 beautiful Pueblos Blancos and lunch was offered by the guides in a very good restaurant in one of the white villages. The views are really breathtaking.
The city of Rhonda is quaint and easily navigated on foot. Our first guides from Seville, Alicia and Manuel, were good, arriving on time for pickup, and explaining the area as we drove to Seville. Unfortunately, we were mixed with another group in Rhonda where the guide had great information, but he was hard to hear with such a large group. When we moved from one location to another, he'd start sharing info and the back of the group missed out. The Pueblos Blancos was an excellent addition, self-guided hike up the side of the hill, but the views were well worth it!
Ronda is Beautiful and the tour guide is nice and helpful, in the end we visit the white house, that's amazing, make the whole trip more memorial.
This was an excellent tour well worth the money. We were a small group and had a driver and guide.
Ronda was wonderful to see and passing through the countryside was also interesting.
Sylvie our guide was excellent. She looked out for our small group even when she wasnt supposed to. She was personable and informed. Ronda was beautiful, people nicer than the big cities
Unforgettable city. The local guide skipped the wine tasting part while added a visit to the cathedral.
Rhoda was fantastic. The tour guides were also great and assisted in making this a great day trip. Rhoda combines history, views, and a "real" vibe. The Restaurante Terrazas is a must for lunch with views of the bridge and fantastic food.
The Rhonda visit was well worth while, guide from Seville - Silvia - was very good and the local guide in Rhonda was very knowledgeable explained the town, its history including bull fighting - something I had heard a lot about but about which I knew very little.
The optional Pueblos white town tours was disappointing - basically a quick trip through the town and a walk up to the top of a fortified hill. It should spent the time in the actual town getting a feel of the town rather than the castle walk. I would suggest there is probably insufficient time in a day trip to do both. I do not blame the tour guide but rather the way the tour program is structured,
Over all I recommend the Rhonda tour without the optional extra of the white town
Carlos was lovely and helpful.
When we were picked up from Sevilla there were only 6 of us.
Once we got to Ronda we were tacked onto a huge group of about 30 others. We were herded around like sheep so I didn't get a feel for the city or any real history about it. If you can get there via car, do it
This tour did not live up to our expectations at all.The guide on the bus told us very little about our surroundings as we drove along.She was more interested in promoting Seville.We were told another guide would meet us in Ronda at 10.30. Nobody showed up. After waiting around our bus guide bought us bridge tickets and told us to go by ourselves and meet back at the bus at 11.30.The other guide eventually turned up -with another group,making us 41 altogether. It appeared to our grouo that we were simply added on as a last resort.He spoke poor english.We were herded along through the streets with little opportunity to find out what was around us. We walked to and from the winery on the same route. The winery had noone there to tell us about the wines.All we know is the wines available were of very poor quality and came from taps in the wall! We were walked rapidly to the bullring. Given a brief explanation of history then the guide left !
We found our own lunch, met our group of 6 others and headed for what we thought was a tour of the Pueblos Blancos. Instead we visited 1-Zahara. When we arrived the bus was parked and we were invited to walk up to the topof the hill and down again. No other part of the village was visited.
We returned to Seville an hour and a half earlier than the booking details had indicted.
All in all we feel that this tour was in no way value or money
