We were a group of 6 on electric bikes. It was a really nice trip around Malaga. We were up on the mountain where we could see Malaga above. It was a sweet guide who was good at telling stories. He spoke to you a little quickly for those of us who have to understand another language. Kind regards, Anni Rasmussen.

Our guide was awesome. She made sure everything we tried was authentic and steered us towards the best places to check out on our own afterwards. The conversation was also very nice. I enjoyed trying the little fried fish and octopus. Definitely would not have ordered that on my own.

Excellent and knowledgeable guide (lives in Spain), good bikes. Great way to discover some hidden places in Malaga. Don’t hesitate, book a tour!
