Hasta la victoria siempre !! I had a wonderful tour of the small white villages of Grazalema and Zahara with Celia and Isabel. Alex, at the language and touring center, did an excellent job of arranging all the administrative issues of payment, timing, matching my needs with his staff's skills, etc. This was the highlight of my tour of seven cities and towns all over southern Spain...I highly recommend this creative tour and language group to anyone. Muchas Gracias, Entrelenguas!!
Well, this was a treat! Just the two of us, with Javier from Entrelenguas and Gilli our master chef. We met Javier and Gilli in a square near our home, and together we walked via shops to buy fruit and vegetables, and wine of course, on to Gilli's home. Over three hours or so, we prepared gazpacho sopa, paella de marisco, and créma de limon. Washed down with a superb Petit Verot from a local Ronda winery. Javier and Gilli are wonderful company and we will be buying a paella pan and practicing our new skills when we return to Australia.
We had an awesome time with Javier and Alex in the kitchen below the shop. With them we made with passion a traditional Spanish omelette, salad, vegetable soup and braised pork cheeks. All with local ingredients and the vegetables even from their own garden. After all that cooking we got to eat it as well. We had a lovely evening and enjoyed the passion and humor of our hosts.
My wife and I did the cooking in the vineyard with Entrelenguas in late August 2017. The entire experience was wonderful. Booking the tour and communicating with Alex and Javier was really easy and straight forward. When we arrived at Entrelenguas, Alex gave us a quick tour of the center and explained its mission--connecting locals and travelers together that goes beyond a typical tourism experience. Alex and Javier were so great during our tour and made us feel very welcomed to Ronda. Alex gave us a tour of the vineyard while Javier helped us make our multiple courses and how we can make them at home. Where we were had amazing views and I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. The tour was the highlight of our trip to Ronda and if we were spending more time in the area, we would have for sure done more activities with Entrelenguas. I highly recommend cooking in the vineyard with Entrelenguas and I have no reservations about recommending any of their other tours or Spanish classes. I highly recommend making time in Ronda for an experience with Entrelenguas.
I came across Entrelenguas online when I was looking for somewhere for my 13-year-old daughter to take some Spanish lessons during our holiday in Ronda, and we were so lucky to find it. Not only did my daughter have some great 1:1 lessons, but there was so much else to do to help consolidate what she learnt (although unfortunately, due to the heat, we didn't do as many of these as we should have!). Many of the activities are open to the general public (and some of these are free). And last night's BBQ at which my daughter was able to practice her new linguistic skills with some lovely local people was the icing on the cake. They even catered for vegetarians :) Mar, Javier, and Natalia are superstars, and Chloe deserves a special mention as well. We will definitely be back for more lessons and cultural activéis when we return to Ronda!
Yesterday we (a group of 5 women) spent a wonderful afternoon with an amazing cook Gelli and Javier our hosting preparing and enjoying a delicious meal. Entreleguas is a very special centre promoting Spanish culture. A must if you visit Ronda x
The walking tour of Ronda was amazing and unlike any of the other tours I'd experienced in Spain (or Europe). Our guide was attentive, personable and knowledgeable and showed us a wonderful experience of Ronda. We missed out on a Viator tour due to a fault in their booking system and called the tourism office in Ronda on the off chance they could recommend anything. We were very luck to be put in contact with Entrelenguas who were so very accommodating.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour around the marvelous sights of old Ronda with Alejandro (Alex). He treated us like old friends, and our time with him made our too- few days in town all the more meaningful. When we return, and we will!, we intend to spend more time with these fun guys doing some of their other offerings like the vineyard tour.
We did the cooking in the vineyard tour on a beautiful evening. The vineyard is set in the valley, with show stopping views of Ronda above, Alex walked with us around the vines &explained the ethos & winemaking process of this artisan family owned business, (which is natural, working with the land ) we shared this activity with one other guest, so its a great to opportunity to meet other people.Alex & Javier were welcoming & funny, they have great local knowledge of the food, wine & area. We cooked our own supper under the gentle supervision of a Spanish lady, who managed to get us to produce three lovely local dishes, accompanied by good wine from the vineyard, The sunsets over the mountains, which was a perfect end to lovely company, local wine & some newly acquired cookery skills. Thanks
