What an incredibly cool trip and what a nice guide we had called Diede. Partly because of her enthusiasm, the trip was educational and super fun. I recommend doing this as soon as you arrive in Malaga so you know what the nice places are. We have visited all things on the advice of Diede.

Our guide was amazing, and the self-guided street art tour we did was perfect for a chilled afternoon.

Highly recommended, the guide very kind and friendly a way to get to know Malaga !!
