The Best of Malaga

The city of Malaga, the largest on the Costa del Sol and capital city of Malaga Providence in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia, is a picturesque one full of interesting architecture, museums, shopping, cuisine, beaches and hiking.

Your walking tour starts at the Plaza de la Merced, one of the most important squares of Malaga. On this guided tour you will learn the history as well as the stories and secrets of the city and its people. Walk along Calle Larios, a popular pedestrian street lined with shops that leads to Plaza de la Constitucion. This public square in the middle of the city is the site of many citywide events and celebrations.

At the Plaza del Obispo you will enter the Renaissance-style Cathedral of Malaga. Commonly referred to as La Manquita, or "one-armed woman" due to only one of its two towers being completed, this iconic church contains impressive artworks and is the most significant monument in the city.

Conclude your tour with a visit to the Roman Theater and the 12th century Moorish castle of Alcazaba. Throughout your time in Malaga you will have plenty of opportunities to take photos, see the magic corners and panoramic places that marked Picasso and pause for a delicious glass of local wine.

Book this 3.5-hour moderate activity level tour of Malaga for a great overview of this remarkable city.

Lots to see in this walking tour.

The instructions were very clear on where to meet our Malaga A Pie tour guide, and to look for the orange shirt and umbrella. I like that, make it easy. We found the meeting place, and the other tourists waiting for the guide, no problem. We even found our guide easy enough, despite that he didn't have the orange shirt or umbrella. I enjoyed the tour, my spouse thought it was more strenuous than the description suggested. The description we read said no wheelchairs but walkers may be accommodated. We had no walkers in our group. Good thing, I think there were too many stairs and ramps. I suggest you avoid this tour if require a walker, or a lot of stairs is a concern. I liked the tour, and the city of Malaga.

Wonderful Seaside City

We took the walking tour of this beautiful city. Everything is close to the port. Our guide was very knowledgeable but tended to ramble on and on.

Excellent Guide-- so-so logistics coordination
March 31, 2019
We did the 3hr walking tour with Malaga a Pie. The meeting place at Plaza de la Marina tourist info center was easy to find. About 1/2 hour after the scheduled time, our tour began. Our guide, Tanya, was fantastic. She had an engaging personality & strong English skills. Her pace was perfect. She adeptly avoided large crowds and gave us sufficient time for taking photos without lingering too long at any one site. She provided perfect overviews of each site, & could provide more detail for those who wanted to learn more. Tanya maintained a brusque walking pace to keep ahead of the other tour groups, which we appreciated. Toward the end of our tour, we combined with another tour group. This was a bad decision, logistically. The meeting point was poorly coordinated & resulted in another delay. The larger group made it more difficult to keep us all together. It would have been better to keep the tours separate & group sizes smaller. 6-10 people seemed like the sweet spot.

Beautiful city
December 10, 2018
The instructions of where to meet the guide were very clear. Candy arrived on time and we had a wonderful walking tour of this beautiful city with her. She was full of interesting information and she was charming. We totally enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. We even stopped at Antonio Bandaras' bar to try the local sherry.
