Planning Your Torremolinos Visit

Try the Pescaito Frito

This fried baby fish is a local favorite. It’s all about seafood here—from fresh sardines cooked over charcoal to the traditional dish of sea bass baked in a block of salt.

Day Trips: Travel Along the Coast

The entire Costa del Sol region is a beachside paradise. Make it a true adventure and take a bus or rent a car to get to Benalmadena, Mijas, and Malaga. Even better: look into the various boat trips offered in the area.

Brilliantly and seamlessly executed by wonderful guide and driver

We were met at the cruise terminal by a charming and friendly driver, Jose, who took us in his super comfy van to Granada, to meet our guide, Alberto. The site is spectacular and the guide was knowledgeable, fun, pleasant and very fluent in English. All in all an absolutely great tour! Thanks.

Full-Day Tour of Seville from Costa del Sol Reviewed by Zygmunt, 07/05/2018

I thought it was a great day trip and well worth it!

My wife & I really enjoyed this day tour. It was fun & enlightening! We saw lots of not so great reviews so were skeptical but honestly I don't know what people expect for the amount of money paid & the time it takes to get there & back...all in all we thought it was exceptionally well run & organized. If you are looking for free time to shop & wander the city on your own this is not the tour for you - it is a fast paced organized tour with no time to spend exploring on your own. TIP: take eros for the street hawkers...they are VERY persistent but if you know this going in & keep a good attitude its over soon enough and some of them have pretty cool stuff plus it gets cheaper the closer you get to leaving...My only negative comment would be when we got back to Spain we had to wait quite awhile at the port for our bus to take us back because the bus driver had driven to many hours earlier & we had to wait out his mandatory rest period - they had cold beer so it was all good!

Full-Day Tangier Tour by Ferry Reviewed by Allison, 07/01/2018

Overall good and worthwhile experience in one day.

Julia Tour Operators, and their guides did a good job to cover as much as they could in one day; wish had more things to see in Tangier, as a lot of time was consumed in travelling.
