The tour is a two hour long visit with a maximum of 10 people plus the tour guide. The price per person is 10 euros.
We recommend wearing comfortable shoes since many of the streets are made of cobble stone.
The route is done on foot and throughout the tour, we will stop at the most important places in Ronda. During the tour we will not enter any of the monuments however from the outside a brief explanation of the history will be given by the guide.
All tours are given in English and due to the reduced group size, there will be time to ask any questions, if needed.
The meeting point isn’t difficult to find, it’s the Paseo de Blas Infantes, again it’s near Door 2 (“Puerta 2”) of the Bullring located just in front of the Tourist Office and next to the Jerez Restaurant.
The tour will finish in Spain Square (Plaza de Espana) in front of the Hotel Parador. At this point of the tour, we will tell you about different places to eat in Ronda. There is everything available, from typical Spanish tapas to more formal restaurants. Apart from making recommendations, we can also help with making reservations, whichever you may need.
