Great to get through all of Malaga and the surrounding area first, hop on and off afterwards and finally take the bus to the train station. Especially nice to get both around the harbor and up the mountain behind Malaga. Please note that you only drive past but not into the center and "old town", but you can easily walk there.

Everything went great! Buses always came on time and were never crowded, so you always had a good seat. The heat was unbearable in some places, but that's how it is when you visit a city in summer. Gladly again :)

For short stopovers, this is the best way to discover the city and to be able to choose the stops according to the places to visit. The availability of drivers is a plus.

We had a great unforgettable time touring Malaga by bus to the sights. Then we took the beautiful harbor boat tour around the coasts of the city of Malaga.

Great experience in one day thanks to this package we were able to see the city from the bus, three museums, the wonderful flamenco show and the boat ride.
