Carmen was excellent Tour Guide. Tour of Bullring was informative and interesting. Plenty of free time to explore Ronda. Sentinel was disappointing because all the restaurants were closing as we arrived and I felt 1 hour in Winter time was too long in this pretty little village when there was nowhere to go to for coffee or drink. Glad we visited Ronda as part of your rather than going on our own with public transport

Guide had been passionate in presenting the key places in both languages and she had delivered it well. There’s ample time in ensuring we explore and appreciate the places given the amount of free time we were given. There had been no rush on this trip.

The tour was amazing, the town is absolutely beautiful with tons to see and do. The guide was able to tell us everything we needed to know and was very fun and enthusiastic.

It was a very unique experience, the tour lead was a girl, she was super friendly and had a good knowledge of all history and everything on the city.

Everything was fine and the guide Carmen helpful and had interesting things to tell. The driver Antonio did his work also very well.
