A Historical Food Tour of Malaga with a Private Guide

Discover the oldest drinking taverns and tapas bars in the historical city centre of this beautiful city. Taste a sweet wine from the region in an old jailhouse, eat traditional tapas in an enclosed patio courtyard surrounded by wine barrels and have a geography lesson of Spain through cheeses from different regions in a bar that has been owned by generations of the same family.


If you love old bars and taverns then this is a tour for you. Discover three of the oldest drinking and tapas bars in the city centre at the hands of your own private food guide as we get off the beaten track. We will visit three bars over the course of about three hours and sample local Málaga wines accompanied by traditional tapas.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I am happy to meet you at your hotel or apartment reception, or if arriving by cruise ship, I will send details of the central meeting point.

End location: I will return you to your Hotel or Apartment after the tour or I can leave you at the port entrance if on a cruise ship.

Duration: 3 hours 30 min.


This is a walking tour.

What’s Included

All food and a drink whenever we are in a bar plus the services of your food guide.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

30 Euros - There are no "extra" costs on the tour, but many guests are tempted to buy a little souvenir along the way so it is always aviseable to have a little local currency on you.

What’s Extra

If anyone would like a second drink in a bar then this would be at your cost. The first drink in each bar is included in the tour cost.

Personal expenses.


Whilst we will pass historical monuments, museums and galleries on the tour which I will, of course, point out, I am not a licensed guide and will not be able to guide you inside of the historical monuments.

A Recent Review of this tour

Michael was a real treat. His tour was lovely. We had great food and learned so much about the local culture. Everything we ate was excellent. Michael is a very interesting man and a truly enjoyable afternoon companion. We would highly recommend him to others.
