It was a fun and informative bike ride through the old city center, along the harbor and along the beach. In terms of physical exertion, it is suitable for almost everyone. Wendy is a nice guide with a lot of practical knowledge and information that she likes to share. She pays close attention to her group and is pleasantly outgoing. In my opinion, the bikes themselves were good by Spanish standards, but you shouldn't want to go on long rides on them. By Dutch standards they are at most sufficient. The bike ride is probably no more than 10km in total: so for their intended purpose they are fine. Ergo: just five stars.

We had a great tour with guide Wendy. She has a lot of knowledge about Malaga and knows how to share it enthusiastically. Top! One point, the description states that the tour goes along the beach. So our expectation was that we would cycle quite a bit along there. This turned out to be just a visit to the boulevard. Comparatively, there was little cycling, and with 4 teenagers we had the wrong expectations because of the phrase “cycling along the beach and through the harbour”. But again, the guide was great and so was the tour.

The tour was great! Carry's love for Malaga made this a very fun tour full of passion for the city. We saw many beautiful and fun places in Malaga. Learned a lot about the history and customs of the people of Malaga. Received many tips and to do's. The bikes were good, but man, what rock hard saddles. Seen beautiful and nice places.

The bikes are amazing, and the track is fun and some parts a little harder. The views from the mountain are great. I can recommend Huy, he is a great guide who knows the pretty spots. Bring enough to drink! Best to wear a light backpack. Helmet is provided.

We loved our bike tour. It was a great way to see the city. Our tour leader was fun, informative, and a great bike ride leader.
