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

The walk was informative, time was given for photography. Unfortunately, the guide was delayed by half an hour due to traffic jams - in the future, a short notification by phone/SMS would be useful.

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.
