This private taxi and private tour was the best! Our driver (Jose) tailored our drive to our interests (lookout point [Placeta de S. Nicolás] and great espresso) and allotted time for us to visit city center. Bring a taxi allowed us to enter otherwise restricted areas. Our tour guide (Jose Francisco)of the Alhambra was extremely knowledgeable (everyone of my many questions was answered) and accommodating to our interests. He allowed some decisions for our itinerary. I take a lot of photos (used 2 batteries) and Jose showed us where to get the best shots. This tour is expensive but worth every penny. It was the highlight of our visit.

Great way to see the different areas of Malaga and get your bearings, out guide David was on time, knowledgeable and informative, also very nice. Dropped us off where we needed to be, definitely recommend this it’s great.

Eco tuk tuk does a wonderful job. My guide Jaime showed me the city clearly enough that I was able to walk from my hotel to the top of Gibralfaro this morning. Great intro to Malaga.

it was a nice experience to drive through Malaga with this enthusiastic guide. In an hour he was able to talk to us about this beautiful city.

It was a perfect start to get a good overview of Malaga in 1 hour, entertaining, a little bit about the history of the city, nice driver!
