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.

Best part of Malaga is to see it from a Tuk-Tuk. It was fun, informative and a great experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city, and shared many tips of things to do in the city.
