What people are saying about Málaga

A super rousing show, I was amazed by the passion of the artists, explosive and full of emotions. The guitar solo was wonderful. The dinner before that was perfect, on the terrace (not included in the ticket price) is only recommended, but you should be there an hour earlier. You can also dine in the event room. The staff very cordial and eager to meet every need, even during the flamenco performance. All in all a successful evening. You have to experience this to make a trip to Andalusia complete.

I can only recommend. A great way to get to know the city. Guide Benny gave us a wonderful introduction and was very personable. A great, exciting afternoon for young and old.

It was an incredible experience. I have seen flamenco before but this was amazing. Would highly recommend anyone go and see this fabulous show.
