A fantastic day trip from Malaga. The balance of time spent between Ronda and Setenil was perfect! Both locations delivered what was promised in the program, so you won’t be disappointed! Everything went to plan: we set off punctually, received factual information about what we were seeing along our bus journey (which was a bonus) and learned so much about our two locations from our knowledgeable and friendly guide, Carmen. Having both guided and free time was a great mix - Carmen’s overview before setting off on our own was so useful and enabled us to make the most of our free time. We learned so much more about our locations from her than had we just gone their on our own… and why not let someone else do the driving?!? Top marks for this fabulous experience!

This audio tour was excellent! The directions were perfect and the information vast. You can take your time, pause if you want and then restart when you are ready. I saw so much. A lot of walking but you have as much time as you wish to take. Well worth it. I saw so much of Ronda and learned much of its history. Highly recommended

I love the concept because it allows us to discover the city, at our own pace and according to our desires. the flexibility offered is wonderful.

Our guide was lovely. Two cities to see absolutely. I highly recommended this tour.

1 city and 1 extraordinary village. A rich history. Breathtaking landscapes
