Exciting experience! Adriano, the driver, is a friendly guy, down to earth and super expert on Malaga, being local: he told us anecdotes and made us discover hidden corners that we could never have seen on our own. In a very professional way he asked us what we had already seen of the city to better organize the tour; the tuk tuk is comfortable, welcoming and silent (because it is electric).. my children loved it! I highly recommend it, especially to see Malaga from other vantage points. Finally, excellent value for money

I can’t recommend the company enough! I went on a boat trip to watch the sunset in beautiful Málaga and it was 100% worth the money and time. The stuff is friendly and fun, they made the experience even better. Thanks Leo, Jesús, Carlos and Gustavo for the wonderful memories and looking forward to booking with them again soon!

This is hands down a must do if you’re visiting Malaga for the first time. Our tour guide Eduardo was great. He taught and showed us so much. He was also a great help when we had questions. A 10/10 experience

Efficient crew, punctual departure and return. Beautiful sunset, right on the spot. Highly recommended.

Excellent experience, whether for a couple or family
