Full description
After leaving the Costa del Sol and Malaga, continue along a scenic route via the white village of Ardales and Cuevas del Becerro. Make the first stop of the day at the bull and horse breeding farm, Reserva Tauro, which is located in a UNESCO-declared Biosphere Reserve, just 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Ronda. Take a tour of the farm and get close to mother cows and their calves, as well as the herd raising the foals of pure Spanish breed horses. The land on the farm is a good example of the local vegetation with olive trees and cork oaks. Then, proceed on a short drive to Setenil de las Bodegas, one of the most beautiful and original white villages in the province of Cádiz. Take advantage of your free time to enjoy this peculiar town. Visit the houses embedded under the rocks of the precipice and sit down for a coffee. In Ronda, you will arrive at the bus station before continuing on foot to discover the deepest city. Take in the incredible views of the Puente Nuevo, which crosses the “Tajo” on the Guadalevin river, and enjoy the old town, the cathedral, and the museums. Participants meet to have a glass of red wine and some snacks on a terrace with an exclusive view of the Tagus Bridge. Alternatively, use your time to discover the oldest bullring in Spain, the immense bullring of Ronda (entrance not included; audio guides provided inside the bullring). Enjoy your free time to explore the city at your own pace and ask your guide for any recommendations so you don't miss the best spots.

Had booked with Meadow Guide who spoke more French than English throughout the day. Maybe a good idea to say first thing in the morning, first out in the evening. So that one reversed the descent, more reasonably. It takes about 1 1/2 hours at each end to pick up guests around

The village is very small, but Ronda had a surprising amount to offer. Here, too, there was a well thought-out tour with a lot of information. Respect to you Alexandra. Also a compliment to the bus driver! The travel time alone was informative and worth seeing. A slightly less strong accent in English would be desirable, as well as a visit to the stands - not just the torero ring and the museum. It was a very successful day!

Setenil de las Bodegas was nice but a maze of streets, the ticket received didn't really help, even with Google maps it was difficult, more guidance would have been welcome. Ronda was great, nice tour with lots of information and free time afterwards. Driver Antonio drove pleasantly, guide Wendy did her utmost to make it a nice day. Tip, I would drop Setenil then you have more time for Ronda because that is really worth spending even more time in.
