What people are saying about Marbella
Ronda The guide on the coach name was José he speaks 7 languages and flaunt is all, he was very informative about each town we passed through. The journey to Ronda had spectacular views stopping off at a village called Setenil where we was treated as it was a festival, people in local dress, riders & horses and procession. After moving onto Ronda the same festival was in Ronda but with more People and evermore elaborated dress from men & lady’s our first stop was the bullring and going through the history of the bullfights and a walk around the bullring itself. Moving onto the winery where we had some wine tasting from white, Red to sweet sherry. We then see what everyone come to see the Ronda Bridge instead of following everyone else where you only get a limited view we went down to another view point and got great views and some super photos. After we had lunch in a cafeteria up one of the side streets avoiding the Main Street as prices are higher to tourist; a great day.
My wife & I really enjoyed this day tour. It was fun & enlightening! We saw lots of not so great reviews so were skeptical but honestly I don't know what people expect for the amount of money paid & the time it takes to get there & back...all in all we thought it was exceptionally well run & organized. If you are looking for free time to shop & wander the city on your own this is not the tour for you - it is a fast paced organized tour with no time to spend exploring on your own. TIP: take eros for the street hawkers...they are VERY persistent but if you know this going in & keep a good attitude its over soon enough and some of them have pretty cool stuff plus it gets cheaper the closer you get to leaving...My only negative comment would be when we got back to Spain we had to wait quite awhile at the port for our bus to take us back because the bus driver had driven to many hours earlier & we had to wait out his mandatory rest period - they had cold beer so it was all good!
May 16, we had booked the excursion to Cordoba. When the tickets were sent to me, it was stated that the meeting point would be the Natali Hotel in Torremolinos because we live in a condo building in Benalmadena right next to the Triton Hotel. We went in morning by taxi to the hotel Natali to start our excursion. As the distance was quite important for the early hour of the morning, we took a taxi, the race cost us 10 Euros. The guide who accompanied us said that we could have been taken care of this morning in front of the hotel Triton because the bus started its journey to Estepona and ended in Malaga. I find it deplorable that you asked us to move and for other guests, they were taken care of in front of their hotel. I have another trip on May 23 for the Caminito Del Ray and this time I am asked to move to Torremolinos at the Plaza del Lido on the seaside promenade near the tourist office. Can you take care of me in Bemalmadena, near the police office. Thanks
Honestly, It takes too much time checking passports and other documents once onboard by the Morocco authorities, but I guess there isn't another way to do it. Many people on my trip, has to wait long time to have their docs. stamped even when the ferry was at port and many left already like me. Too many persons equals too much time the inspection. On the other hand, the return was okay and they easest the necessary immigration control.
The tour was well coordinated and the guides seemed well informed. After 2 hours for shopping, just 2 hours for the sight seeing is too short. Need more time to explore the cave. Cable car ride can be an optional item. Breakfast halt at a rather dirty road side restaurant can be avoided since the cafes in Gibraltar are much better.
