The tour was great. We started to go to Setenil first for 45 min giving you enough time to take pictures, use the bathroom and get some coffee if you want. Then we had our guided tour in Ronda and your given enough time to go around on your own and get lunch. Highly recommended

A great time. Full of verve and, above all, knowledge about the objects shown, Mrs. Guide. Breathtaking views and local cuisine. A trip worth recommending!

The tour in general was very good. We would have liked to have spent more time in Setenil and also in Ronda. The guide in Ronda (Juan) super nice.
