Full description
Whether travelling as a couple, a family with children or travelling in a group - there is no better way to discover and fall in love with beautiful Málaga than on a private sightseeing treasure hunt tour. The treasure hunt takes you where bus and bicycle tours just can’t go. You will explore 10 beautiful and exciting Málaga sights in your private group. At the beginning of the Málaga city tour, the event guide will welcome you with a short introduction and equip you with the treasure hunting bag containing a modern compass, a treasure book, and some other fun gadgets for you to become a real city treasure hunter. After doing one station together with the event guide, you are independently on your own. On a 3-hour private sightseeing treasure hunt tour, you will enjoy the historic center of Málaga navigating yourself with the modern compass and the treasure book. The tour will lead you to all major points of interest, like the Plaza de Merced, the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the cathedral, the Roman theater and the Alcazaba Castle. Moreover on your walking tour, you will feel the authentic atmosphere of Málaga's charming city center. At each station, you have to solve a small riddle or a playful task to collect some clues that will lead you to the final station of your city tour, where you will find the treasure. The riddles and tasks are not time-consuming so you ́ll have enough time to look around and explore each place the treasure book leads you to.

I did this with my 9 year old son. I booked specifically to give him something to look forward to that wasn't another history tour. We loved everything. The GPS was easy to use and we got to see so much of the city. We had fun figuring out the clues and finding our way along. We took our time and enjoyed the locations. The little book with instructions had great history as well. If you're looking for something a bit different I'd highly recommend this.

It was a great way to see Malaga's beautiful old town and get our bearings. With a two-year-old, we appreciated that the tour is self-guided, allowing us to go at our own pace. It'll probably take an hour to an hour and a half of walking, but with stops to solve puzzles, get ice cream, and drag a toddler along the shiny pavements, it'll take longer. Mattias has created an excellent tour, complete with thoughtful touches and personal recommendations from him and his wife. I'd recommend it to anyone, but I think older kids would enjoy using the compass and solving the puzzles the most. We had a great time. Thank you very much, Mattias.

This was an amazing experience and such a great way to see malaga. The guide explains everything perfectly then you are set to see everything without a specific time frame or any pressure. We were given great recommendations in the treasure hunt book and used these to stop for drinks along the way. I've already re booked my next hunt with these guys. 10/10 would reccomend to all friends. It was very thoughtful, clever, extremely well laid out and above all else incredibly fun.
