Very nice activity. The time spent in each city was sufficient. Also in ronda we had a 1 hour city tour with a guide in our chosen language to explain the city's attractions and history to us. Then we had a two hour free time. It was perfect.
All very organized, Wendy is dedicated to speaking in four languages so that we all understand. Very complete information. The two places are very interesting, but the weather in Ronda seemed exaggerated. Very satisfied
Very nice excursion. Good guide, new bus. The farm, Ronda and Setenil all well worth it. Price/quality definitely okay.
Great trip, beautiful places and amazing guide. His passion and interesting stories made this day awesome
Good bus driver, great tour guide, it was an interesting tour, optimally organized in terms of time.
