    Great to get through all of Malaga and the surrounding area first, hop on and off afterwards and finally take the bus to the train station. Especially nice to get both around the harbor and up the mountain behind Malaga. Please note that you only drive past but not into the center and "old town", but you can easily walk there.

    Loved the area covered by the red route - unfortunately didn't have time to try the green or blue. Ideally you would need 2 days to cover the whole thing. The tour gave us a good idea of the city layout and places we wanted to explore. Only complaint is that it was very difficult to work out where the stops were , particularly for starting the tour. I was sent a better map on the day of the tour too late to help us. Given incorrect info about Pompidou opening times , guide assured us it was open on Tuesday and it wasn't.

    Malaga buses run 10am-7pm, need to work out value for your 24hour ticket along with the times of the buses. Also, I purchased a an Experience card, which states that you can choose 3 entries from their list of options as part of the cost. I subsequently found out from one of the official Tourist Information Offices this has changed and you can visit ALL of the options. The details have been changed but their leaflets haven’t as they “have so many old leaflets left & haven’t changed them yet”. Check when you purchase!!
