I booked a group tour on my first full day in Malaga so that I could get my bearings in the city (it was my first visit). Turns out I was the only one on the tour, and I was very happy with the content, destinations, and the stories (I'm Irish, and we like our colourful stories :) ). The guide, Tania, did a great job and kept it interesting throughout. We had chats about Picasso and art, the city and a whole host of other things. We even got some traditional cake from Malaga. It as clear that she liked her work and was interested in the sharing her love of the city throughout the tour. One of the best tours I've been on. Thanks Tania! :)

Lovely, friendly and informative guide "Gandy". Related in an engaging and interesting manner the history of its Phoenician and Moorish past. Patiently answered questions whilst pointing out the different styles of the building. The time raced past especially during the tour of the magnificent cathedral. Well worth the fee.

Found in getyourguide in the morning and participated two hours later. We were eight participants. The tour was very detailed and entertaining at the same time and I can only recommend it.
