Damian was one of the best guides I have ever had. From the historical aspects of the streets and buildings of Malaga, he was captivating, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Our early morning food tour, not the tapas one was even better as we navigated the hidden gems of the city. From fresh churros to delicious orange and chocolate ice cream, he was a pure delight! What a wonderful and special tour we were given!!

Easy purchase. The app is very helpful in knowing when the next bus will be along. It's sold as 10-7 but the first bus didn't come to the first stop till 11. That would have been important info. Bus stops seem well placed to the major places.

Muti our guide as awesome very knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. Would recommend him and the tour top notch.

Jose was fabulous! Great walk with nest information and delicious nibbles. Highly recommend.

Loved the sights, busses were clean, drivers friendly.
