Top Tours & Activities in Marbella
Find out for yourself why the Spanish town of Marbella, with both Andalusian and Moorish influences alike, is the Costa del Sol's top tourist destination.
Dating from the 15th century, this church is the oldest religious building in Marbella.
King Fahd's palace and some upmarket hotels are just some of the fancy buildings you can spot as you walk down this street on the way to Puerto Banus.
Visit luxurious shops and restaurants at this 1970s marina, a few miles just outside central Marbella, for a swanky Mediterranean experience.
See some of the master of Surrealism's signature unusual but brilliant sculptures down on Avenida del Mar!
Experience the rugged red countryside surrounding Marbella, traversing deserts and rivers!
This mosque was named after the first king of Saudi Arabia and is built in the Andalusian style - there are similar buildings in Fuengirola and Malaga!
Finally, if you've exhausted all that Marbella has to offer, just jump onto a ferry and see another continent. There are frequent day trips available to Tangier, Morocco.
If you are going to Morocco or even just to the nearby British colony of Gibraltar, you are subject to border control - don't forget your passport.
It's hard to forget that the sun is shining, but remember to reapply sunscreen every hour to avoid nasty burns.
If you are visiting any places of worship, Islamic or Catholic, be sure to dress modestly as a sign of respect.
The drinking age in Spain is 18, but children may be allowed to drink wine in restaurants with their parents.

What People Are Saying About Marbella
a really great tour with a lot of things that school doesn't teach you, combined with a great atmosphere from Paco and Paul - the local guide in Gibraltar. If you have the chance for a nice sunny day, then the view is more than breathtaking from up there, and take care with the monkeys :D
The tour is a whistle stop of most of the landmarks in Saville. Our tour guide Paco with a dry sense of humour made the 2 hour journey a little entertaining. The tour focused on the cathedral which was magnificent. Generally a good day & the weather was kind, the rain ceased to allow us to walk about comfortably.
Our party of nine adults had a busy but very enjoyable day on the rock. Time was allocated for shopping before and after the rock tour, although the time after was curtailed somewhat due to the rock tour over-running. The rock tour itself was great, especially seeing the monkeys. Our guide was very courteous and provided some well received comedic moments. Overall, everyone enjoyed the day and returned happily to Spain with their many purchases.
The coach arrived at the pick up point promptly and we had a warm welcome from the guide. The coach was clean, well maintained and air conditioned. The journeys to and from Gibraltar were unremarkable, which in itself is a major compliment.
Have to admit it is not an easy task to deal with a group with four different language speaking people. Nati, Julian's guide was so good. I invite people all over the world to come and visit the Red Fort, Agra Fort and THE Taj Mahal and enjoy the creation, the art and artisans skill. Believe me they are extraordinary. I only hope we could organise our tours so efficiently and with educated proffessional guides.
