Full description

After leaving the Costa del Sol and Malaga, continue along a scenic route with local vegetation such as orange trees, olive trees, and cork oak and the white village of Ardales and Cuevas del Becerro.

Arrive at Setenil de las Bodegas, one of the most beautiful and original white villages in the province of Cádiz. Take advantage of your free time to enjoy this peculiar town. Visit the houses embedded under the rocks of the precipice and sit down for a coffee.

In Ronda, arrive at the bus station before continuing on foot and enjoy a guided tour of the main sights. A walking tour in the romantic town center with its churches, mini-palaces, and Spain's oldest bullring, offers plenty to uncover.

Enjoy the incredible views of the Puente Nuevo, which crosses the “Tajo” (the Cut) on the Guadalevin river where you'll taste a local Ronda wine on a terrace with an exclusive view of the Tagus Bridge.

The Palacio Mondragón, also known as Palacio del Marqués de Villasierra, is, without doubt, an interesting visit, being a landlord Palais with Arabic gardens, but it is also the Archeologic Museum of Ronda, with interesting pieces proving the antiqueness of the city.

Enjoy your free time to explore the city at your own pace.

We were a bit skeptical about using a bus tour having a large group of people. The bus picks up people from 3 different cities and then leaves to the 2 destinations. I was surprised that everyone came at the right time and the bus left from Malaga which was the last pickup right on time. We had an awesome tour guide named Kathy (Kathleen) who was giving the guidance in English and Spanish. Again our concerns were put to rest because she did her job so efficiently and never felt that we were not informed what was happening. The landscape on the way is just serene and beautiful and Kathy described the history as well as all the important aspects of what we were looking at and we felt reached Setenil quite quickly because we were never bored. After a brief introduction of the place we were given 45 minutes to see the place ourselves. We did this and were back and we left for Ronda. At Ronda, we were given a very nice tour again by Kathy for an hour and a half. Ronda is so beautiful, it wi

De busreis vanaf Malaga naar Setenil de las Bodegas en Ronda was informatief. Onze gids (Kathy, van België) kon veel vertellen en vragen beantwoorden (Engels, Spaans en Nederlands) zowel onderweg als op de locaties. In Ronda een paar uur vrije tijd na de rondleiding. Leuke wandeling, prachtig uitzicht, mooie foto's van de brug, waterval en lekker gegeten in een van de vele taperias. Al met al een lekker dagje weg (08:00-17:30) en zeker de moeite waard om Andalusia verder te ontdekken vanaf een centraal punt (Malaga)

The tour was organized very well. For me it started at 8.30 am in Malaga and finished there at 5.30 pm. After Malaga there weren't any more stops to pick up other people. Ana was a very informative and enthusiastic guide and did an excellent job explaining everything in Spanish, French and English. First we stopped at Setenil de Bodegas where we stayed for around 45 minutes because one doesn't need long for the main attraction. The stop in Ronda was much longer around 4,5 hours. After the tour with Ana we had 2 hours time on our own. She gave everyone small radios so we could hear her well and she didn't need to shout. The radios were a wonderful idea! Thanks for a great day in sunny Andalusia!
