What people are saying about Plaza de la Marina

A fabulous experience. Our guide Maria told us so much about the history of Malaga and was so kind with recommendations for nearby restaurants, bars, etc. She made the tour have a very personal touch, which I loved. Being able to use the sightseeing app after you’ve finished the tour is also fantastic value, I kept using it to get from A to B. Very grateful to Maria and highly recommend the City Walks !! :)

I've been to Malaga before and done the hop on hop off bus, which is good but only really covers around the outskirts, this is my first walking tour I've done there and it was brilliant, just meet at the start and away you go! Roland our guide was perfect and he also explained to us about the self guided routes in the app! We had a great stay!

Really good trip where we saw a lot of exciting places. But it would be nice to have a little more street names or points on a map. We occasionally had to go back and forth a bit to find the right path. However, we enjoyed the trip and would very much like to go on other similar trips in other cities.

Great 2 tours with Maike. She was very knowledgeable and knew everything about Malaga. I discovered more of Malaga thanks to the app and the self guided itineraries. Good value for money!
