I only gave it 3 stars because we were not allowed time in the city of Ronda. We were left with one hour for lunch and had to make our way back to the bus. Didn’t get to tour the city on our own and buy souvenirs. Also, we didn’t visit the cities in Pueblos Biancos as per tickets. We had to plead with our guide to take us. They stopped only for 5 min enough to take a panoramic picture of one city.
Nevertheless, The guide In Ronda was great and our tour was delightful. I definitely recommend this trip and hopefully they would actually make it over 11-12 hours, per description.
Paid for this tour (w/o pueblos blancos tour), but ended up being combined with another tour that toured 2 pueblas blancos then Ronda. NO WINE TASTING! And got 45 minutes at end of tour to see the Bullfighting ring on my own. Had separate tour guide in Ronda-who was quite rude and had issues with people having to go to the bathroom. He never had ANY scheduled bathroom breaks during the tour and pissed off 1 couple b/c we didn't have time to do the tour in Spanish and English, Only English. thus they left and went off on their own. Tour company should find a better guide for Ronda.
Awesome trip with two fun, experienced and friendly guides. The place is stunning and the wine is very fine xD. Whole day was unforgettable experience although I wish we had a bit more free time for exploring, one hour is hardly enough!
Tour guide Peter (with Naturanda) was accommodating and friendly. Title of this tour is misinforming. Actual tour is 4 hours for white villages and 2 hours in Ronda. If you want more time in Ronda, I recommend going there yourself. Bull ring and wine tasting not worth the extra money.
Bus arrived on time, group is small 14-16, excellent guide, beautiful scenery. Wine tasting is not great but otherwise this is a very worthwhile day. Historic bull ring interesting. Also liked superb tour of the city of Ronda -- this and the visit to the Pueblos Blancos were highlights. By the way, do NOT pay extra for the Pueblos Blancos Tour because there's only one bus, only one tour and you DO go to the Pueblos Blancos whether you pay for it or not. And it's very worthwhile. All in all, a very good value. Bring your camera!
Our main guide Petra and Ronda-specific guide Pedro were both fantastic in terms of organisation, professionalism and interesting information on the places that we visited on the tour. The house that we visited in Ronda with views of the valley and Nuevo bridge was a perfect choice and provided great photos without the crowds. Both speak very good English for anyone concerned about this. Pedro in particular had many deep insights into the Ronda and Spanish culture so our entire tour group was scuttling along with him to catch every word spoken.
Tour was reasonable however I would have liked to spend more time in Ronda as we did not get to see all the sights we had planned on seeing. Perhaps the Pueblos Blancos Tour should have been a separate one to allow more time in Ronda.
Due to a local race event wasn't able to tour Pueblos Blancos, but rest of tour was well worth it. Guide and driver taking us to Ronda were great and having a local guide from Ronda area provided great history of the area.
AMAZING!!! what a great trip. Our tour guide on the bus was Petra. She was very friendly, very informative. Once in Ronda our guide was Pedro. A book of knowledge very friendly even shared a beer with him after the tour was over. All in all my favorite tour.
