What people are saying about Province of Cádiz

Our tour guide spoke wonderful English and was hilarious throughout the bus rides and in Setenil de las Bodegas and Ronda. We stopped at Setenil de las Bodegas first for a walk through the tiny village and had about 25 minutes of free time to grab a quick snack. Our next stop was in the larger town/city of Ronda, where we had more time on the walking tour, plenty of opportunities for photos, and a nice glass of wine on a hotel terrace right next to the Ponte Nueva. We had a couple hours of free time after the walking tour before meeting back at the bus station. Directions were very clear and nobody was lost.

Very nice tour. The tour guides were very informative. Too bad that everything was told 3 times... In Spanish, French and English. That makes everything a bit tough... But respect for the tour leader...

Excellant tour with a very knowledgeable guide which always makes it more interesting with over 2 hours left for shopping if you desire or something to eat and drink.
