Driving and Training in Andalusia

I will be in Andalusia in May for 12 days. I am working on my itinerary to include Malaga, Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla, Ronda and perhaps Ubeda and Baeza (and more?). I understand the drive to Ronda is beautiful but the roads are very windy and high. I have serious trouble with heights and windy roads. If I want to have a car for part of this trip, what can I do? Any suggestions for hiring a driver or car and driver? Does anyone know a good driver/guide?

Beverly, do rent a car for your trip. I don't feel that the road to Ronda is all that bad, but if you think you'd have problems, why not take a tour there. You'll find plenty on offer everywhere. Will be much cheaper than hiring a driver, that's for sure.

I know you didn't ask, but your itinerary is WAAAAYYYY too ambitious unless you want to do nothing but drive for 12 days.

Due to Spanish laws you will find any car with a driver is registered to work as a taxi.
Just take public transport bus or trains.

You don't need to have a car to visit Ronda. It is connected to Granada by train and to Sevilla by bus.
