A gentle walk through the beautiful pedestrianised centre of Malaga with delicious Tapas and a Private Guide
Malaga has become rather a "cool" city in the last few years and with its renaissance, gastronomique delights have arrived too. Tapas Bars in Malaga now no longer just serve "pescaito frito" - fried fish, but nowadays they cover a range of the best food that Spain has to offer from the succulent cured Iberian Hams and traditional Manchego Cheeses served in traditional tapas bars, right through to modern day, contemporary, fusion style tapas combining Asian and Spanish cuisine and served in chic surroundings.
The tour is ideal for cruise ship passengers spending the day in town and make a perfect shore excursion when in Malaga. I will introduce you to all the major historical buildings in the City, plus you will get to eat some wonderful food.
The Tour is equally as ideal for anyone passing through Malaga on a day trip or for those staying in Malaga for a few nights. If you are staying for a longer period in the city I would recommend taking a tour on your first day, helping to plan your days ahead.
You will be met at your chosen location in central Malaga. On the lunchtime Tours I will take you to the wonderful covered market first to "whet your appetite". Sadly the market is closed for evening Tours.
Over the next three hours or so, we will wander around the central area of Malaga and pass by the historical monuments including the Cathedral, Bishop's Palace, Roman Amphitheatre, Alcazaba, the Picasso Museum and his place of Birth.
During the course of the Tour we will stop at 3 wonderful Tapas Bars where you will be able to taste some of the finest cuisine that Malaga has to offer.
Tours are still undertaken in wet weather - we do not get much rain in Andalucia!

Tours can be done at lunchtime or in the evening. Lunchtime Tours normally start at 12.15pm and Evening Tours start at 7.15pm.
Please note that Tours are not available in Semana Santa (Holy Week) or during the Feria in August when there are just too many people in the city centre to move around comfortably.
Tours are available on Sunday of course, but do not include a visit to the market as it is closed on Sundays. Evening tours also are unable to visit the market.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
30 Euros - Possibly more. There are NO extra local payments, but many of my clients are tempted by the occasional souvenir along the way. Some have bought fans or olive oil, ham and wine.
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 is an ideal guide in that he is a native of England but has lived in Malaga for 30 years, so he speaks perfect English and also is very knowledgeable about Malaga and Spain. (We have had some TBL guides who rate themselves as fluent in English, but clearly are not fluent or even advanced.) It was a very enjoyable 3 1/2 hours walking through central Malaga and going to 3 tapas bars and chatting with Michael.
