    The trip is not well structured at all, they make you wait at a large number of stops and for a long time on the way and while coming back that you will feel like you spent the whole day inside the coach for a day for a journey of 100kms which could be done in 1.5 hrs.. There is not enough break for a coffee/breakfast either which they should have arranged in the midway of journey when they are starting the trip so early as 6.55 am. Though they said this time, the trip started off from Malaga past 7.15 am and as mentioned stopped for long times all the way. Stopping to pick up people on the way is a good idea and helpful, but it should not be for such long times that you spent unreasonable time in coach for such a short journey. The guide was not very helpful either, she did not give proper information to return to the bus station after we were left on our own and we lost our way on the way back to reach bus station. The guide was not very friendly to the questions asked like the basic necessities of where we could find a toilet. She was more bothered about time which they themselves had managed in a very bad way and then causing discomfort to the travellers. All in all we would not recommend taking this trip.

    My sister and I had an amazing time on this trip! Ronda is simply stunning and it was lovely to be shown around by a guide and get the history of the place and all its nooks and crannies. It was simply something else and would highly recommend!

    This was a great tour with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. The only shortcomings are with viewing the gorge. If this tour allowed time to venture to the bottom of the gorge it would rate an easy five star. The gorge is the highlight of the tour and I believe more time should be allowed for those willing to venture off to the bottom of the gorge to do so

    The overall trip to Ronda was good, but not necessarily as described. The tour guide, Paco, was about 15 minutes late and did not acknowledge anyone on the bus until we were about half way to the destination. The bus picked us up in Malaga and stopped over a dozen times to pick up others on the way to Marbella. On arrival, we did get a decent overview of Ronda and enjoyed the winetasting. The visit to Marbella at the end was a nice bonus. The downside was, there was no El Tajo Gorge tour... we had to do that on our own, and we did not have much time to do so. Overall, it was a good trip, but I would recommend doing this on your own if able... you will save time picking up and dropping people off if coming from Malaga and have more time to enjoy the sights at Ronda.

    Beaucoup dautobus,environ 6h, mais ronda en vaut la peine,seul bémol,le vignoble,cétait plus un magasin avec 2, 3 baril, vous dégustez vous même à partir dune valve qui sort du mur, ensuite il veulent vous vendre leur piquette!, rien à voir avec un vrai vignoble!la gorge est très belle ainsi que la vue du bord de la falaise,belle ville propre avec plein de petites boutiques, route sinueuse en montagne avec une vue à couper le souffle,si vous avez le mal des transports cest à éviter!

    We enjoyed our tour to Ronda. The destination is worth the journey. Be prepared for the early departure
    from Malaga with numerous pick up stops along the way. The guided trip was informative and the sites are incredible.

    Despite the rainy weather, the trip was great. Ronda is a beautiful town and our tour guide Daniel was great. The only other downside was all the stops we made picking up various members of the group. However, that aspects was expected. I definitely recommend this tour.

    Of the 4 bus tours we took from Malaga, this one was OK but not spectacular like Alhambra, for example. We were the first pickup in Malaga at 7 am, followed by 2 hours of more pickups in the towns along the Costa del Sol. When we finally got underway, the route took us into the mountains where the views are breathtaking - especially when the sun was out. Upon arrival, we were transferred to a local guide who took us through the bull ring and museum interesting, the gorge, amazing, a walking tour of the old city pleasant, and a wine drinking ok however, Julia tours did not provide audio support with earphones, with the result that we could only hear maybe 1/4 of what the guide was saying. Another guide with a megaphone was behind us, bellowing over our lady and pushing us along. Unfortunate. We had 2 hours of free time to wander and find lunch after which we began the return journey. For some reason, we were dropped in Marbello at an old square and left to amuse ourselves for an hour. This segment was not listed in the trip descriptor. By this time the shops were closing in any case, we were too tired to do anything but head to the bathrooms. Now, this is why you must carry toilet paper and sanitizer with you on all trips: the women's bathroom was closed and the men's barely usable. Evidently no one had checked recently about the actual conditions of the facilities. Overall, it was great scenery and a nice town to see with its unique history of bullfighting. The bus was immaculate, the bus-guide helpful, and the driver fearless on those mountain highways.

    It was an early start for some of us because on the way to our destination the coach had to make several stops to pick up other folks from their hotels along the Costa del Sol, mainly in Marbella. Some of us started about 06:55 am from Malaga.
    But overall it's worth it. I just wished I could have time to descend down to El Tajo Gorge and took that iconic photos.

    Really nice tour with an amazing itinerary. We had fun in the Arena, in Ronda and were given enough time to look around in the town itself.
