Nice way to spend 7 hours on a Saturday. You get to wander around Mijas old town for about 1 hr 20 mins, then off to Puerto Banús for a quick look around. Finally you go to the centre of Marbella, where you have 2 hours to see the best bits: the old town and the beach. The multilingual guide is very helpful and is just with you on the bus. Recommended.

recomendadísimo el guia Eduardo fue súper informativo y Súper agradable y ameno como persona con un gran sentido del humor , Alejandro el conductor también fue muy servicial.Los lugares visitados fueron hermosos y nos dieron un pastel y café de regalo , me encantó!

Well-organized trip, nice staff. I kind of would have wanted to have more time in the destinations but that’s not a minus for the organisers of the trip itself. Would recommend this for everyone.

I couldn’t fault a thing! Everything was perfect! Perhaps we didn’t have much time in each place but that’s the case with organized tours! Awesome guide perfect organization, nice A/C-d bus!

Had a very nice day, tour guide told a lot about the history. We were given enough time to view everything on our own. Definitely worth it.
