It was the best food tour we have ever had in Spain. The group size was very manageable, so that you really had a chance to go to the trendy / best cafes, ice cream parlors and co. a place to come. The food selection was really good, so there was something for everyone. The background information on the various foods in the market hall, such as olive oil or spices, was also very nice. It was also a particularly nice extra that you got one or the other as a small test pack as a souvenir. In addition, our guide was very knowledgeable about the city of Malaga, so the city tour associated with the food tour was also full of interesting information. From the end we were fed and extremely satisfied. It was the best food tour we have ever had in Spain.

Damian was one of the best guides I have ever had. From the historical aspects of the streets and buildings of Malaga, he was captivating, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Our early morning food tour, not the tapas one was even better as we navigated the hidden gems of the city. From fresh churros to delicious orange and chocolate ice cream, he was a pure delight! What a wonderful and special tour we were given!!

Great guide, guided tour in German and 3 eventful hours! Thanks!

Our guide ordered his father along because he spoke German. Delicious food, tastings at the market and the highlights of Malaga in a 3-hour program - nothing to be desired! Thank you, we can only recommend this tour and look forward to your next visit to Malaga with these guides!
