Our guide Jesus was awesome! Our gps’ battery went out mid hunt and he went and got us another one in no time. Very fun activity to do with a kid. We got to explore the old city, find clues, very exciting! Would definitely recommend with kids age 4-12!

We did an hour-long Malaga eco tuk-tuk tour and had a great time. The tour offered fantastic views and took us up to the castle. Our guide, Adriano, was good and friendly. Highly recommend this fun and eco-friendly way to see Malaga!

We loved this tour. The guide gave us great information on the history. She was able to answer all questions and kept our group entertained with the conquering stories.
