A bit about VoiceMap

VoiceMap’s walking tour app gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace. You can start the walks at any time and stop whenever and wherever you like, for as long as you like. You don’t even need to hit pause. The app uses your GPS location to play audio automatically, at exactly the right time and place, and when you start moving again, playback will too. It also gives you directions, making it much easier to put your phone away and immerse yourself in your surroundings, not the screen.

You can download audio tours with a single tap before you leave your WiFi zone. They come with offline maps, and you don’t have to pay for data while you’re out exploring.

  1. I’ve lived in the Ronda area for 14 years and know the City of Dreams like the back of my hand, so I wasn’t expecting too much from this audio guide. How wrong could I be?
    Although I was familiar with every location included on this tour, I learned loads that I didn’t know from this very thoroughly researched guide by Clive Muir, of the website Ronda Today. In particular, the historical aspects.
    Clive’s voice is easy on the ear and the accompanying music by local professional guitarist Paco Seco made for a very pleasant couple of hours.
    We broke our journey in the Barrio San Francisco, where we had an excellent breakfast at Bar Sánchez by the Almocabar Gate.
    I was accompanied on the tour by friends Brenda and Jeremy White, who own property locally and have been coming to the Serrania de Ronda regularly for over 20 years. Like me, they thought they knew all there was to know. They were also wrong.
    At the end of the tour, we gratefully sank a refreshing beer in Bar El Rincón de la Manzanilla on Calle Virgen de Los Remedios and discussed the audio tour we had just taken.
    “I enjoyed the tour very much,” said Brenda, “although I felt some of the historical information was a bit long-winded.”
    “I disagree entirely,” responded Jeremy. “I found the history sections fascinating and I learned a lot.”
    We all agreed that we had spent a delightful morning and had enjoyed the whole experience immensely. Strangers to Ronda would find this audio guide fascinating, as well as informative, we felt.

  2. Exploring Ronda with the VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide was a treat for the senses. The tour not only revealed the town’s historical gems but also highlighted its stunning natural beauty.

  3. I was short on time but eager to experience Ronda. This well-crafted tour allowed me to make the most of my limited visit.

  4. Exploring Ronda with the VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide was an absolute delight! As someone who prefers to explore at my own pace, this tour was perfect for me. The convenience of having turn-by-turn directions ensured that I didn’t miss any of the important sights, and the automatic audio playback as I approached each location added an immersive touch to the experience.

    The tour started in the gardens of the Alameda with an introduction to the rich history of Ronda. Walking past the Mondragón Palace and museum, I couldn’t help but feel transported back in time. The highlight for me was reaching the Puerta de Almocábar, where I could almost imagine the tension and fear that soldiers must have felt while guarding the city’s defensive border. It was a powerful moment that truly brought history to life.

    Following the old walls, I discovered hidden gems like the Arab Baths, which were a fascinating testament to Ronda’s past. The Puente Viejo bridge, with its stunning views, was a definite highlight. Crossing it and returning over the Puente Nuevo provided breathtaking panoramas of the surrounding landscape. The engineering marvel of Puente Nuevo left me in awe, and I appreciated learning about its construction and historical significance.

    The tour concluded in front of the Plaza de Toros, the Bullring of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda. It was intriguing to delve into the importance of bullfighting in Andalucía and uncover the stories behind figures like Blas Infante and the Goyesca ladies. The tour even answered questions I didn’t know I had, such as the role of a famous Italian priest in the town.

    I must commend the creator of this audio guide for their thorough research and passion. The information provided was engaging and informative, and it truly enhanced my understanding and appreciation of Ronda’s culture and heritage. The voice narration was clear and pleasant, guiding me seamlessly through the town.

  7. As a lover of art and culture, the VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide for Ronda exceeded my expectations. The tour seamlessly blended historical information with captivating anecdotes. I found myself immersed in the ambiance of the old town, walking past the Puerta de Almocábar and imagining the past. The tour provided valuable insights into Ronda’s rich heritage, including the influence of Blas Infante and the significance of bullfighting. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a cultural journey through Ronda!

  8. (Thanks Karen from get Your Guide!) Would highly recommend this audio walking tour, there is no way I’d have visited all of the spots. You can go at your own pace, stop along the way and enjoy the background music. Great commentary, historically and cultural info. Loved the facts about the 2 bridges and the bull ring. I started the tour at 5pm, I think any earlier would have been tough as it was very hot – the last 30 minutes is quite a climb but well worth it. Rhonda is a beautiful town with amazing history, culture and ambience. Fab little tapas bars. Well worth the drive (if you’re staying on the coast). I happened to arrive on the day of a music festival and enjoyed their warm up overlooking the mountains – stunning. I’d love to return.

  9. Bought the tour at the Get Your Guide link in this article and what a fantastic way to discover Ronda! Great information and history. (Even the kids 12 and 14 enjoyed it.) I was a bit uncertain when I read some of the reviews on Get Your Guide saying that the app and guide didn’t work well because some of the route was closed but we had no issues at all and the tour worked perfectly fine from start to finish. Apparently, there was a storm a few weeks ago that created damage and there was some repair work going on in the area of the parador but all we had to do was pause the tour and make our way to the next location then restart the tour. (It’s in the tour instructions which means that the audio guide creators are updating when needed.) All in all highly entertaining and recommended!

  10. Hi Sam, thanks for the kind comments and I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour with your family! I hope the repair work at the Parador will be finished soon but as you mention its not difficult to pause the tour and walk the two minutes around to the other side and continue at the next location by the Puente Nuevo museum entrance. Happy travelling!
