What people are saying about White Towns of Andalusia
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.
This tour was a great opportunity to see some of the hidden gems around Southern Spain. The tour was well organised and led by a knowledgeable tour guide who spoke perfect English. The bus was clean, comfortable and spacious. It was a great opportunity to meet other tourists from all over the world and it gets you away from the traditional tourists places which everyone goes to. Would recommend!
Excellent trip. Although extra free time in Grenada (30 minutes more) would be better as otherwise you can’t see both Albaicin, and the center of Grenada (Cathedral and market). Also, Charles Quint visit was promised in the description but we never got the chance to do it !!!
