I loved this tour. There were only 8 of us, of all varying ages, and it was really great. Loved the gorgeous little first town - Zahara de la Sierra- and I would highly recommend the little climb to the ruined castle. Ronda is lovely and much bigger and different than I was expecting. Loved it!
This was a well organised and put together tour. We were part of a small group and both our guides did very week dealing with three different languages within a group of 10. Comfortable modern bus transport and it's a nice touch being picked up and dropped off from your accommodation.
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
Tour guides were great. However the extra fee was for a castle and "tour white towns was not worth the extra cost as all the others in the tour saw the town as we'll. the castle was not the extra fee as we'll. if you are really looking for a tour of the white towns this is not for you!
We were very disappointed by this tour. Although the approximate time of the tour was 11 hours, we were back to our hotel within 10 hours - 1-1/2 of which were spent in Seville on the bus picking up and dropping off people on the tour and another 1-1/2 hours waiting at Zahara de las Sierras for the 3 or 4 members of our tour group who had signed up for the option tour.
We did not see many of the things promoted in the trip description.
Things we did: Bull ring, New Bridge and El Tajo gorge, Juan Bosco house, Church of Santa Mari
Things we did not do: take a stroll through the 19th-century gardens in Alameda del Tajo and soak in the wonderful views, immerse yourself in Spanish wine culture with a tour of the Wine Museum of Ronda. Learn about Ronda’s long history of wine making, several beautiful bridges, enjoy free time to explore Ronda on your own before returning to Seville, visit Sierra de Grazalema, the first natural park in Andalusia brimming with diverse flora and fauna. See why the park is famous for its spectacularly rugged limestone landscape of cliffs, gullies, caves and gorges.
After the tour ending about 2:30 pm we had time for lunch and then headed back for the bus which departed at 4:00 pm - approximately 4-1/2 hours after arriving. The tour of the wine museum was simply a visit to a wine tasting bar where we were given no information, but little plastic cups to taste wine from taps in barrels in the wall. Simply adding another hour in the town for us to view the other bridges or do some shopping would have made the trip so much better.
This trip was much too expensive for what one got. My recommendation is to simply book ALSA bus tickets to and from Ronda and do it on for own for a fraction of the price. The Viator bus stops at the bus station in Ronda.
