They will be very easy to recognize.
On Alcazabilla street, in front of the Roman Theatre and the Alcazaba.
Suitable for all ages / Wheelchair friendly
The Cathedral of Málaga is a symbol of the city, famous for the fact that it was never finished and was consequently given the charming nickname “La Manquita” (The Little One-armed Lady).
Discover its amazing history and why the Cathedral is unfinished!
This is the main street of Málaga and is a popular spot for shopping. The construction of this street is linked to a local delicacy – the sweet wine of Málaga!
Come and hear the intriguing and amusing tale regarding the eponymous founder of this street, Marqués de Larios!
This is the main market of Málaga and equally loved by tourists and local people. The building was formally a Muslim shipyard, which gives it its name, since ataranzas means shipyard. The building itself is visually stunning, with this unique marriage of 14th century Moorish architecture with 19th century industrial design, completed with a stained-glass window depicting the city’s main landmarks.
Come and taste the freshest produce in the city!
This church was once a mosque and has a peculiar structure due to the tower at its main entrance. Find out why the church has the unusual nickname, Church of the Five Balls!
This square was formally the central hub of the prostitute district – but, instead of neon lights, flowers were used! We will also introduce you to the most iconic flower in Málaga…and maybe even dance some flamenco, if you’re lucky!
Named after the vote for the Constitution in Spain, this is one of the most emblematic squares in Málaga. This square hosts many public events and celebrations – come and learn about some of the most iconic fiestas in Spain!
This is one of the oldest cafés in Málaga and gave rise to a new system for ordering coffee. Learn how to order your coffee like a true malagueño – the locals will be so impressed!
We finish the tour with the oldest monuments in the city – the Roman Theatre and the Alcazaba. The Alcazaba, which is the Muslim fortress and palace, is central to the history of Málaga and is the reason for which the Christian reconquest of the city was so difficult. Admire the stunning architecture and follow the tour with a glass of the famous sweet wine in El Pimpi, a restaurant partly-owned by our local celebrity, Antonio Banderas!
We like to keep our groups small in order to give a personalized tour. The use of illustrations, maps and other audio-visual materials is a very important part of our tours.
Our tours are provided in English and Spanish, in two separated groups. For more languages (Italian, French or German), you should contact us first.
Bring your pets to the tour! We love animals and we think they should have a good time with you! We have the first dog tour guide in Spain!
Even if the literal translation of Free Tour is “Tour gratis” the real meaning come from the concept “Free price”.
With a free tour, the price is open; you are the one who decides what amount you want to give depending on your level of satisfaction.
Thanks to this kind of tour, anyone, regardless of the budget, can have access to the history and the culture of the city, something that until not long ago was much more expensive and not everyone could afford it during the vacation.
Yes! Every day we offer a Free Tour at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm, just join us at Plaza del Obispo (in front of the cathedral). As a general rule when the groups are less than 4 people the tour may be canceled, but no worries – rarely happens.
Come to Plaza de la Obispo, in front of the cathedral and look for a guide with the red t-shirt and umbrella. Say hi and start your adventure!
We recommend you arrive 10 minutes in advance.
On Alcazabilla street, in front of the Roman Theater and the Alcazaba.
A perfect place to grab a drink or something to eat!
The main difference between the free tour and a normal tour, is that the traveler decides the price at the end of the tour based on his/her level of satisfaction. In this way he/she has a power of decision that did not have before.
With a traditional tour, you pay it in advance and if you don’t like it well… you have bad luck!
In this way, it’s better for the traveler since he/she can decide the price depending on the experience and the satisfaction, he/she does not feel “cheated” if at the end of the visit feels that he/she has paid more than he/she should.
It’s very easy to answer this question 🙂
We don’t know how much we will get at the end of the tour, that’s why we always give our best during the tour!
We try to be fun, by giving pleasant and entertaining explanations.We ask questions involving the tourists and trying to catch their attention always in a way that they forget about theirs phones and the time flies by having fun together.
We explain hidden parts of the city, telling histories that not everyone knows because we like to study and prepare our tours. We like to work hard on our visits because part of our benefits depends on them.
In this way, we create an unique experience and we assure you that sometimes we have more fun of the travelers just seeing how they enjoy knowing Málaga.
The real reason why Málaga Adventures is so good, are its super tour guides!
Yes but unlike other Free Tours we do not stop in an “associated” restaurant in which we can take commissions.
We stop for ten minutes at one of our favourite places, the Atarazanas market, a beautiful market where you can taste or buy some typical products at a very good price, talk with your guide or go to the bathroom.
Booking the Free Tour is not compulsory but we recommend to do it, especially during the high season.
In any case, if you haven’t book, don’t worry. Come 15 minutes before the tour and we will make the booking for you.
Don’t worry, who hasn’t been late sometimes?
First thing if it’s possible, try to send us a message by Whatsapp to let the guide know that you’re late.
If not possible don’t worry, usually the guide starts the tour in Plaza del Obispo and it takes 15 minutes to explain the first point. The next point is Calle Larios at the beginning of the street where is the statue of Lord Larios.
If still you can’t find the guide, you can go to the our tour or at the next hour, or the day after. Just let us know and we will make another reservation.
Yes. The historic center of Málaga is pedestrian and all the places that we visits do not have problems of mobility.
Although in Málaga the weather is good all the year, during summer you can find some very hot days.
For this reason, we recommend to bring with you water, sunscreen and sunglasses.
No, during our tours come also children or people with mobility problems and they don’t have any problems.
Additionally, our tour guides always will check that everyone feels well during the visit
Usually if it rains, there are no problems also because in Málaga there are just two options:
Option A: It rains a little and we can do the visit without any inconvenience;
Option B: It is the Universal Flood and it seems that the sky is going to fall.
If we check that the day of the tour is expected a very strong storm, we will contact you and postpone the visit when the weather is good.
Don’t worry, we can understand that you can have some inconvenience and you need to leave the tour before the end.
It happened to everyone at least once.
For this reason, when you come to the tour, just let our tour guide know that you will leave before. For us the only important thing is that you enjoy while discovering Málaga for the time that you can
Awesome! We are very happy to hear that you are interested in applying for a position at Málaga Adventures. We have prepared a few questions that we would like to ask you.
