We engaged Not Just a Tourist for a private transfer from Granada to Seville, stopping for a one night's stay in Ronda. We were picked up in Granada after touring the Alhambra by José in a Nissan 4x4. He correctly guessed that we were famished by then and brought us for some tapas at Los Diamantes. Excellent experience eating standing up with the locals.
We departed Granada and headed towards El Torcal de Antequera, a nature reserve in the Sierra del Torcal mountain range. Luck would have it that the only windy road leading to the reserve was being upgraded and we were not allowed to pass through a certain section. With the sun setting soon, José looked at us and asked whether we would mind him driving off-road to bypass the upgrading works. We would still have a chance to reach a lookout point and see the karst landscape the area was famous for. We agreed and went off on a bumpy 5-10 minute ride before arriving at the Las Ventanillas viewpoint for excellent views.
Upon reaching Ronda, José recommended we eat at Tragatapas and it turned out to be the best meal we had our entire 10 days in Spain. The next day, he brought us on a nice walk around Ronda city before departing for Zahara de la Sierra. We did a lunch stop in quaint Grazalema before visiting Arcos de la Frontera and finally to our hotel in Seville.
We found José to be friendly, knowledgable, considerate and polite. He gave us very helpful tips for our remaining time in Seville after we parted ways. Spain got real for us the minute we met José. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Andalucia or Spain in general.
