Ronda, a mere 90 minute drive away from Malaga Cruise Terminal, is one of most beautiful, most historical and most typical of Andalucían towns. Perched on top of a rocky escarpment, surrounded by the lofty peaks of the nearby Sierras and split in two by the sheer El Tajo gorge, Ronda is a city with stunning views, grand mansions, charming ancient streets and a history dating back at least to Roman times.
Let our private guide escort you from your cruise ship at Málaga port, through the beautiful Andalucían countryside in a comfortable vehicle, where our first stop is the nearby town of Setenil de Las Bodegas. A unique stop, offered only by Marbella Escapes tours and a stop you’ll be glad you choose.
This “town under a rock” is built straight into the rocks overhanging the river. This wonderfully Andalucían “Pueblo Blanco”, with its terraced streets of white house’s tumbling down the hillside is full of charming corners and wonderful views.
Setenil is also home to some of the area’s most delicious tapas. Sit in a “cave” restaurant and enjoy some of the freshest, most traditional and tastiest tapas in the Ronda area – Carrilada, Croquetas, Jamon, Serranitos and the local Payoyo cheese all must be sampled!
After Setenil we continue to Ronda, driving through some of our favourite scenery often filled with wildflowers especially during spring and with a spectacular mountain backdrop.
On arrival in Ronda, your guide will accompany you around the most important sights in the city, show you the best views and the most charming corners. El Tajo Gorge, El Puente Nuevo, the Puente Viejo & Puente Arabe, the Palacio de Mondragon, Iglesia de Espiritu Santo and the Old City Walls are just some of the stops on our unique tour.
If you wish time alone to shop etc. our guides are completely flexible and will adapt the tour to your needs. After a wonderful day in the heart of Andalucía, your guide will escort you back to your awaiting cruise ship, safely in time to depart Málaga port with memories of a wonderful day in Ronda.
