What people are saying about Province of Málaga

I found out when I arrived that I was the only guest on the tour. Instead of canceling, my guide, Ando, did a one-on-one tour with me throughout Malaga and the castle area. He was EXTREMELY informative, even though he was originally from Armenia, but had been in Malaga a very long time. He made me feel comfortable on the Segway immediately, watched out for me during the tour, was extremely safe and gave warnings, etc. when needed while traveling on the streets. He adjusted the tour to give me the things that I really wanted (views/pictures) and I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend both him and the Segway tour. Phenomenal way to go a long distance seeing so much of the city without walking. I will absolutely be doing Segway tours again in my future!! Absolutely recommend!

We did book this tour reading reviews and would recommend taking this tour for the best experience. Our guide was Carlos very friendly and knowledgeable. We even got a lift to a restaurant in a nearby village by Carlos and his colleague as there was no train till late evening and helped us to take a taxi till Alora station. Carlos did provide a lot of detailed information about the place to us. This was a memorable experience passing through King's Path.

Tour guide was Roberto…EXCELLENT!! He had incredible knowledge of the city, wines, locations, history. Very enjoyable evening wandering through at least 5 locations with tapas and wine. I had a request for Rioja wine and he enjoyed he accommodated that during the tour. Very personable and knowledgeable. ASK for Roberto…phenomenal host/guide!! HIGHLY recommend!!

Maria is a passionate and knowledgeable guide who provided good insights about the history of the Roman theatre and Alcazaba. Provided good illustration of what Alcazaba used to look like before it was refurbished. Highly recommended!!

Havier was an excellent guide who interacts well with my family and tour mates. Went to a few restaurant to try out the wine and tapas. Wonderful introduction to beautiful town of Malaga.
