Meeting point really easy to locate & all explained well on our booking confirmation. We enjoyed the whole day very much! Our guide Maurizio was multilingual & was talking in 3 languages so everyone could understand the history of the places we visited. He was also very polite, cultural and knowledgeable. Happy to answer every question & with a smile on his face for the whole long day! We've learnt so much about Ronda & Setenil and you didn't know where the day has gone! Travel to Ronda was bit long but that's good as well as you can see beautiful Spain countryside from the coach. And Ronda... just stunning. When you visit Malaga, Ronda is your must go stop as well! We also had wine testing booked which we didn't know about so that was a nice surprise. Thank you very much to Julia Travel!
All in all, a good trip. Quite a long fat and I felt we spent a little too long in the Plaza de Toros which meant not a lot of time left for lunch or exploring Ronda by ourselves. I didn't really support bull fighting before and now I've been informed about many of the details I know it's incredibly cruel, so I was left feeling uncomfortable and sad for the bulls. The wine tasting was good, and you can unusually, drink as much as you want. Be sure you bring water and a snack or sandwich as it's a long time before you stop for lunch. Setinel was lovely and you do have the opportunity to buy some refreshments here but it's just a relatively quick stop and walk around but a very pretty little town and great views from the right hand side of the coach when leaving.
The concept and idea is great but a lot of time is spend on immigration formalities. It took around 5 hours in the bus and 2 hours in ferry. Immigration another 2 hours. The rest of the time was spend in the excursion. The journey by bus and ferry was pleasant. The Spanish guide was lazy, while the Tangier guide Hassan was absolutely amazing! Overall it was a great day spend and kids enjoyed it too!
The trip was great other than the fact the tickets said 0750 and it didn’t arrive until 0920 which we only found out after we called while waiting for ages and the other group of people waiting had no clue about this either. So definitely call before the day to confirm the time as that was so annoying. Other than that it was fab and would thoroughly recommend
We got on the bus im Malaga and had to pick up people along the coast before heading for Ronda. So the first people who got on the bus had to wait over 3 hours for a coffee/toliet break. And then 40 mintes for Setenil was simply not enough, extra 30 minutes would have been nice.
