Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in Seville, after which you’ll drive through a striking landscape of sunflowers and wheat fields heading to “Las Aguzaderas,” a medieval castle that once straddled the border between Spain’s Catholic kingdom and the Moorish empire.

Proceed to Zahara de la Sierra, a picturesque “white village” known for its stunning views and rich history. Take a stroll around town and grab a coffee before touring a local olive oil factory that makes some of the best in all of Andalusia.

Then continue to Grazalema, passing through the “Sierra de la Grazalema” nature park while en route. You’ll enjoy views of distant cities like Cadiz and Malaga from the “Puerto de las Palomas,” located at 3,795 feet (1,157 meters), and scout for the native Griffon vultures that like to float overhead.

Arrive in Grazalema and pause for a tasty meal (own expense) surrounded by the town’s charming houses and colorful flowers. Following your visit, head to Ronda, one of the oldest towns in Spain, passing through a scenic forest filled with cork and oak trees on the way. When you arrive in Ronda, wander through this scenic city situated on two dramatic cliffs and take some free time to explore sights like the famous “New Bridge.”

You’ll be dropped off at your Seville hotel at the end of the excursion.

This was one of the best tours we did on our two week trip. Well organized, professional and the city of Rhonda was absolutely breath taking! I highly recommend this tour!

I was a little disappointed in Ronda itself, the little white villages are beautiful and would have liked to spend more time exploring them instead of visiting a bigger city like Ronda. I was also disappointed with the meeting place, when you are new to a city as confusing as Sevilla, a meeting place should not be so complicated to find. Another thing, the tour guide was a very nice helpful man but he recommended a restaurant that was horrible, the food was terrible, the service lacked and the waiters were rude. Maybe in the future he should leave that restaurant out as it was the biggest disappointment on our visit to Ronda,.

If one has limited time in Andalucia, this should be on their MUST do day trips. We enjoyed the journey to the mountains and the view from white villages were simply breathtaking. Also Ronda has little gems hidden in her nooks and corners. We had great day with Lupita of Naturanda who is forever helpful and informative.

The white villages are little jewels in the mountains of southern Spain and Ronda is a delightful village to visit. This is a great way to spend a day outside of Sevilla!

Loved seeing the Spanish countryside on our day trip from Sevilla. From the huge fields of sunflowers to the gorgeous mountains, everything was beautiful. I would recommend skipping the olive oil your and have more time in Ronda, but that is not a reason to skip out on this tour! Sergio was awesome!

Pace of tour is just right, able to see the white villages and had enough time for lunch as well as sufficient free time to walk around

The white villages were excellent and refreshing. Very charming from far and nice to walk around. Ronda has some historic value and good views but after the while villages and other Spain tours was not all together very different. The olive oil mill visit really dragged on and could have been done in half the time or skipped all together. Also, a warning to not buy anything at the mill's shop. While the guide insisted that he does not get any commission but he did say very good things about the products available at the mill. We bought a few things and later on realized that these are branded products available in Seville at half the price.

Hi
Enjoyed our 2 tours. Ronda and Alhambra

Wanted to provide some feedback on the Ronda and white villages tour.
Couldn't find anywhere so I have used this email address.

Firstly guide Miguel was very good. He cared about his flock.
The tour itself is too long. For us Ronda was the reason we booked tour and to get there last after a big day on road was wrong.
Also the olive oil visit although interesting in my opinion wasn't really necessary.
Ronda can easily be visited privately and the tourist office is geared to help so the extra cost to see white villages via a guided tour could be avoided.
Also at Ronda we were given a map some were a brief overview and then left to our own devices
The tour was very good the bus the guide and perhaps we just picked the wrong tour.
Thanks

The countryside and Ronda were spectacular. However, the guides could have told us more about the history and culture of this area. I speak both Spanish and English and would have liked to learn more about this region. Also, our local guide not the ones we started with in Seville who stayed with the bus in Ronda left 4 of us behind. Apparently he was lax about keeping count and walked off. Unfortunately Spanish villages are maze-like and we didn't know how to get back to a bus. I spoke with a taxi driver and he took all of us to where the buses were parked. Make certain you don't lose sight of your guide as some don't keep track.

I great trip and the 2 guides were very good and friendly. However, it can be a strain to listen to another language for a long period of time. This was a Spanish/English tour. The 2 white villages we visited before reaching Ronda were amazing. So glad we went there. But as on most tours, there are always some passengers that have no idea of time and appointments, so we were delayed several times. As a result, our time in Ronda was much too short. My suggestion would be to skip the visit to the olive oil factory. No very exciting. A long but great trip. I can definitely recommend it.
