Wow, what an amazing experience! We were lucky enough to have Carlos (and his friend Sebastian) all to ourselves for a day trip out to the white villages. Sebastian is hopefully going to be hired on as a guide, as well, and was in training (please hire him, GetYourGuide!) Touring with these guys was like visiting old friends who show you around the best places, and keep you laughing with their anecdotes. Carlos is the man! He was the perfect balance of information, giving you a little space to explore on your own, and keeping it moving. We ran into him the day after our tour in Granada, and are happy to say we made a great friend. Hola to our amigo Carlos!

Peter is an excellent, helpful and humorous guide and very accomodating to quite a big group of us with different needs. We enjoyed this tour very much. though the beginning of the third would have been better if we didn't have to walk with our luggages and making everything wait for us to catch up to the bus. it would be even better to bring us near to the bus parking area.

Absolutely super tour. María the tour guide was interesting and very knowledgeable. She made it a good experience. Spectacular countryside especially with the sunflowers. The town's were beautiful perched on the mountain side. An absolutely must to do.

Very well organized trip with an excellent guide- María. We really enjoyed the stops and the white villages and Ronda are beautiful.

Beautiful places to meet and enjoy accompanied by someone who tells you the history of the place
