Great way to have an overview of the city. The audio commentary is in multiple languages so no one in the group feels left out. We struggled to find the first stop, and the customer service representatives were willing to help, very responsive and helpful. Our driver Francisco Amaya was knowledgeable, patient and courteous. He explained to us in detail how the tickets work and even gave us a few recommendations. 👍 It was an overall great experience.

This was definitely one of our best Hop-on Hop-off tours in Spain. We puchased the 'Experience Package' wish included the normal HOHO tour plus entry into several museums including Picasso, Music, Automobile, etc and a one hour bout tour. Absolutely lovely! Start early with the first bus or buy a 48 hour pass if you plan to do 1 or more experiences because you just won't be able to fit it all in one day! Stop 1 is at the very modern Malaga train station where you can find quick meals, snacks and clean restrooms.

I booked the hop on hop off bus tickets for my middle aged parents and aunt and they loved it. I was a little disappointed however that some of the lines were not running. I didn’t really feel that we were able to get a lot of use out of our tickets either. We did go in January though. I might recommend younger people to do a walking tour instead as everything in the city center is so close. For people not wanting to walk kilometers, this is a great option.
