Full description
After leaving the Costa del Sol and Malaga, continue along a scenic route via the white village of Ardales and Cuevas del Becerro. Make the first stop of the day at the bull and horse breeding farm, Reserva Tauro, which is located in a UNESCO-declared Biosphere Reserve, just 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Ronda. Take a tour of the farm and get close to mother cows and their calves, as well as the herd raising the foals of pure Spanish breed horses. The land on the farm is a good example of the local vegetation with olive trees and cork oaks. Then, proceed on a short drive to Setenil de las Bodegas, one of the most beautiful and original white villages in the province of Cádiz. Take advantage of your free time to enjoy this peculiar town. Visit the houses embedded under the rocks of the precipice and sit down for a coffee. In Ronda, you will arrive at the bus station before continuing on foot to discover the deepest city. Take in the incredible views of the Puente Nuevo, which crosses the “Tajo” on the Guadalevin river, and enjoy the old town, the cathedral, and the museums. Participants meet to have a glass of red wine and some snacks on a terrace with an exclusive view of the Tagus Bridge. Alternatively, use your time to discover the oldest bullring in Spain, the immense bullring of Ronda (entrance not included; audio guides provided inside the bullring). Enjoy your free time to explore the city at your own pace and ask your guide for any recommendations so you don't miss the best spots.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. It was a really long day - over 10 hours from Torremolinos but it was so worth it! I could say I barely felt the driving part because the drive was like a tour itself, our amazing guide Eduardo was giving loads of information about Malaga, Ronda, surrounding area and history, I’ve picked up so much amazing information and really felt his love for this area. We did loads in one day and I thoroughly enjoyed all of it - saw places I would have not visited by myself. The coach was clean and the driver was very professional and I felt save throughout the journey. I felt that the time in Ronda was perfect to visit the old city, have lunch, take pictures and even do some souvenir shopping! This tour was above and beyond my expectations!

It was chaotic at meeting point. We arrived as instructed but couldn’t find the bus. No tour leader or anyone at the meeting point and we ended up almost getting into a wrong bus. The bus came late, we finally got into the right one. The schedule of tour was tight, wish we could spend more time in Ronda. The tour itself is well organized and tour leader is very experienced.

Very interesting and recommendable. The stopover or the visit to the horses and bull farm takes place by bus, so you can easily enjoy this wonderful excursion with a dress and "comfortable shoes", except for the strongly air-conditioned bus don't forget a jacket / cloth ... but that is nothing new here.
