Pick up and drop off were smooth. Our guide was a trooper - She did the tour in 4 languages which was insane. She did an incredible job, but I wish (for her sake and other tourists) that languages could be split up and not in the same tour. We could tell that she was very tired at the end, and having to listen to information in 4 languages took up too much time. If it were in one language, I think the guide could have fit in more information and it would be more interesting. It was also interesting because the information she gave in different languages was not always consistent, so there would be different facts in other languages and it was unfortunate for those who could only understand one language. The tour was split up in Ronda, which made the experience more enjoyable now that it was only two languages. Overall though, the cities were amazing and I would recommend this trip.

Beautiful must see trip!

Ronda is amazing at for that I alone I would highly recommend this trip. But also the driving through the landscape was very nice. Appreciated the time we had in each village/town and also that we stopped for photo opportunities. Great guide on my trip. Luckily he only had to do the speaking in Spanish and English.

Very well organized tour. Alexandra is and excellent guide, she provided lot of details and many stories about the places. The return route selected by the driver Petro was inspired and we could see great views. Definitely I recommend this tour for people that want to visit Ronda and to admire these parts of Andalusia without having the stress of driving.
