What a wonderful tour. Starting with the confirmation of the pickup location and time, the day before the tour, the professional driver who arrived early with a clean car and water for our trip to Ronda. Our personal tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the experience fun while been informative. The tour took us around the most interesting parts of Ronda but left us with enough time to wander around ourselves and for lunch. I would certainly encourage others to take it, we saw a lot of people wandering around not really knowing where they were going. It's worth the price to have someone explain the history of such a wonderful place.

Alicia was our tour guide for our walking tour around Ronda, and she could not have been more awesome! We loved her!! She was so sweet and patient, and suggested the best routes for the best sights and views that could also accommodate my 80 year old father who has severe mobility issues. She was very knowledgeable about Ronda, having grown up there, and her English was awesome, from having lived in England for about 6 years. She also new we were avid photographers, so she took us to the best spots for wonderful photos, all while explaining the history and current culture of the area. We would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting a perfect few hours in Ronda!

A private tour at your own pace and time is the absolute way to go.

Our guide was outstanding and the best tour of the week. It started out with being picked-up by our guide and a driver right at the condo we rented. This is in comparison to the two hours we road around on a tour bus picking up other passengers when we went to Cordoba (and the two hours dropping everyone off). We had a lovely conversation on the way to Rhonda. We got to avoid the big tour groups and got to go into areas where they couldn't (such as the rooftop of a church with incredible views. We were able to have discussions with him about the little details. We got to go at our own pace and linger where we wanted. We learned not only the cold history facts, but about the culture as well. He was so friendly. He also made sure we had some free time. If you can afford it, go with a private tour. Well worth it.
