    The guide need to explain things in fewer languages!
    Angel_V
    , May 2022
    Setenil was breath taken. The town was beautiful. I wish we had more than 45 minutes to visit. 35 minutes were with the group that required 5 different language explanation. Not so good when I believe it should be one or two languages no more. By the time we got to Ronda my wife and I decided to go on our own. It was a better experience.

    Setenil is a tourist trap, you stay there 30 min at most and not much to see. Ronda.... beautiful Ronda. Take a bus and go to Ronda by yourself and stay there for the night. I was with a french group... they were so annoying and walking slowwwwwwly that I felt I would miss some time so I left the group and visited by myself. Anyway the guide was talking with the ones around him and not waiting for the group to reunite (and i do really understand as they were sooooooo slow)

    Dear Cathy_S I am glad you enjoyed the Ronda visit on the tour, despite the inconveniences experienced with the rest of the group, Best regards,

    7+ hours on a bus from Malaga
    Emily_A
    , Apr 2022
    Too many pick up points. "leaving from Malaga" means that you get up early just to drive around for 3 more hours to pick up others when Ronda is actually only a 1,20 h drive. Then we went to sentinel which was cute but empty. Then only a few hours (4) in Ronda when there is so much to do there, and most spend wasting time. No time to see things and eat. Then another 3 hr return trip

    , Mar 2022
    Do not go with this tour operator : you leave Malaga at 6:50 and from 6:50 to 9:30 you spend 2 hours and a half to pick up tourists in différent hôtels on the coast. The same scénario to come back in Malaga!The bus was full and not a lot of explanations hiver by the guide. I DO NOT RECOMMAND THIS TOUR OPERATOR

    Bus was too over booked, poor ventilation, no social distancing. Had to sit an elderly woman at very back seat. So bad we had to get off bus on a highway outside Porto Banus. We want our money back, we paid 180

    Picking up people too much wasted time
    Raquel_B
    , Oct 2021
    Very nice tour, except too much time wasted picking up people at different towns…you should have this trip with no more than 3 Stops … we stopped 5 to 6 times in different towns… not enough time in Ronda!

    Average and practical
    Hector_R
    , Sep 2021
    This tour was practical and convenient for us because we are “easy going” customers. However, it offered nothing much than just the transportation. The provider made arrangements for us to be picked up at closer location to our apartment and we appreciate that. The tour guide did what he could it terms of providing us with guidance at the sites. When I booked this tour it was advertised as Ronda and Setenil with Wine tasting. Not sure what happened in the booking proceed with the provider but there was no wine tasting at all. I would encourage future customers to inquire more about what is covered to avoid misunderstanding and if this was a mistake by Julia Travel, Bravo Tours and/or Viator, please pay more attention to such details and make sure your staff is train to avoid these little issues that can affect your reviews.

    8 Hours bus ride tour
    Edita_G
    , Aug 2021
    Where to start to describe this nightmare tour? It was stated that there us no hotel pick up and there was a meeting point at 6:55 am. However, what was not said anywhere is that the bus will drive for two and half hours next to the beach from Malaga to and past Marabella picking up other passengers from the resorts. Then finally, somewhere past 9:44, we headed to Ronda (every single seat was filled amid pandemic). Twenty minutes before Ronda, the bus pulled into some dirt put for coffee and restroom, like we could not do such in Ronda. At that time bus broke down and could not restart, so we got stranded there for an hour. The bus driver fix it. It took us FIVE Hours to Get to Ronda (1h23min trip). At noon the “tour guide” gave us the map and said go for three hours and figure it out for ourselves. The only thing that she explained in detail was where bus parking was and how to get back to it on time ( how is this guided tour?!). The bull ring tickets and wine tasting are included, but there were none. When asked about wine-tasting, they stated that due to covid, they can not do it and had no answer as to why we did not get tickets to visit bull ring in Ronda; however, we were charged for all and bus was packed to the last seat. Next, we were driven to Sentinel and given only 40 minutes claiming that that is the time we would usually get regardless of the bus being broken for an hour!! LOL Same thing happened as in Ronda; our guide pointed to the street and said to go. We returned to the bus at 4:15 and then traveled for three hours before, arriving in Malaga at 7 pm dropping people around. We all work hard for our vacations, and the time we have for them is precious. It is disrespectful to treat and cheat people like this. If you add all the time, we spent EIGHT hours riding the bus!! This morning I called Viator requesting a refund for it.
