What people are saying about Province of Málaga

I found out when I arrived that I was the only guest on the tour. Instead of canceling, my guide, Ando, did a one-on-one tour with me throughout Malaga and the castle area. He was EXTREMELY informative, even though he was originally from Armenia, but had been in Malaga a very long time. He made me feel comfortable on the Segway immediately, watched out for me during the tour, was extremely safe and gave warnings, etc. when needed while traveling on the streets. He adjusted the tour to give me the things that I really wanted (views/pictures) and I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend both him and the Segway tour. Phenomenal way to go a long distance seeing so much of the city without walking. I will absolutely be doing Segway tours again in my future!! Absolutely recommend!

We did book this tour reading reviews and would recommend taking this tour for the best experience. Our guide was Carlos very friendly and knowledgeable. We even got a lift to a restaurant in a nearby village by Carlos and his colleague as there was no train till late evening and helped us to take a taxi till Alora station. Carlos did provide a lot of detailed information about the place to us. This was a memorable experience passing through King's Path.

One hour tour in the water to see the sunset…phenomenal views and crew. Enjoyed a glass of Spanish Cava wine during tour and took amazing sunset pics. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip…HIGHLY recommend!!

This unique experience was worth every effort. It is so wonderful it could not fail to please.

Great sea tour! Nice, chilling music and not so crowded. Friedly stuff.
