What people are saying about Ronda
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.
Our driver Rafa was very careful and safety conscious. He negotiated very difficult roads with ease. I felt very safe with him at the wheel. At times, I had difficulty following the commentary because of our guides accent, but that is not meant as a criticism of him. He conveyed lots of information and was very enthusiastic about providing and enjoyable experience for everyone. I thought the tour would be on a smaller vehicle, rather than a tourist coach. Things were a little disorganised when we first arrived in Ronda, but this May have been attributable to some passengers not following instructions. We had a good lunch at Grazalema where you could choose what you wanted for lunch ( at your own expense). I am glad that I did the tour and got to see the white villages. In my opinion, the smaller ones we visited first, were more appealing than Ronda which is a much larger and busier tourist centre.
While Ronda was supposed to be the highlight, this tour turned out to be so much more. The two "white villages" (I don't feel Ronda quite qualified as one) were very attractive and unexpectedly pleasant surprises - charming, secluded, delightfully preserved in time. The first stop at the ruins of a castle/fort had the entire group scrambling up old stone walls like kids, and was a lot of fun! Our guide Reyes was fantastic, very detailed in the narratives/history, even in 2-3 languages, high energy and wonderful personality! Thank you so much for a lovely day!!
We opted to stay over in Ronda rather than go back to Sevilla which was one of the best decisions of our trip to Spain and one of the options with this trip which allows you to bring your luggage along. From Ronda we went on to Granada but would rdther have stayed an extra night in Ronda which is suc an amazing place and nice and quiet after the day trippers go home. Great guide on the trip through the pueblos blancos.
Pablo, our guide, and Lola, our driver, made sure that we had a chance to explore lovely white hill towns, but also olive groves, sunflower fields, and gorges. The scenery is breathtaking, history, fascinating, and tour perfect. We enthusiastically recommend!
