Málaga is the biggest city on the Costa del Sol. So when it comes to tours and activities, there is an abundance of options for people from all walks of life. Of course, a tour is a popular way to see a new city and learn about its past.
Málaga has the perfect blend of history, culture, and tapas bars, which is why the team at Málaga City Adventures has put together a list of the best tours the city has to offer in 2022.
The 5 Best Tours in Malaga
1. Sightseeing Treasure Hunt
We are very proud to be the number one activity on Airbnb experiences in Málaga. Hundreds of happy visitors have participated in our most popular tour, our Sightseeing Treasure Hunt which allows you to see the city in a unique way. Once you’ve booked your time and date, one of our friendly guides will meet you in Plaza de la Constitución and provide a treasure bag, bottled water, and navigation equipment.
When you’re ready to go, you can begin solving puzzles and exploring the city at your own pace. There are ten main locations on the adventure, with plenty of opportunities to take photos and stop for ice cream along the way. Whether you’re with family, friends, or looking for a team-building activity, we’ve got you covered.
2. Tapas & Wine Tour
Many people come to the Costa del Sol to experience some of the best tapas and wine in Spain. In Málaga, there are tours which combine the two and show visitors some of the finest places to experience the Spanish bar culture. It’s a good way to make sure that you are visiting the top restaurants that serve authentic food and drink.
However, it’s not difficult to eat like a local if you know where to go. You can find more information on Málaga’s best tapas bars on our blog. Some of the city’s most popular establishments are also en route on our adventures. We highly recommend stopping by El Pimpi or La Casa Del Perro for a taste of the Spanish way of life.
3. Whodunnit Crime Challenge
A more testing endeavour in the historical centre is the Málaga City Adventures Crime Challenge. In this plot-driven detective game, participants must find secret clues hidden around the city and piece together information in order to solve the murder mystery. Our victim’s name is Pablo Ruiz Picasso and it’s your job to investigate the case
It’s a memorable game of Whodunnit which lets you discover the centre of Málaga in your own time. Our Crime Challenge is the only sightseeing activity of its kind which also put your detective skills to the test. Some of our participants like to gather all of the clues and figure out the suspect, crime scene, and murder weapon over a coffee or cold beer.
4. Free Tours
In the historical centre of Málaga, it’s normal to see people sporting t-shirts and umbrellas saying “Free Tour.” Usually, these tours are a pay-what-you-feel experience and are crammed with famous landmarks and information about the city. Some will take you to Alcazaba, around the old town, and to the cathedral, which is where all activities with Málaga City Adventures finish.
There are all kinds of free options that cater for different travellers with a give-what-you-want pricing strategy. Some tours show you the city’s street art and others take you around museums, such as the Automobile and Fashion Museum. Many companies prefer it if you book in advance, including us! You will find our cheapest rates on our website.
5. Bike Tours
Beyond the city centre of Málaga are several beaches, mountains, and coastal paths. Some of these can be travelled to by bike which is an efficient and pleasant way of seeing the surrounding area. Most rental companies are affordable and offer a range of two-wheeled vehicles including electric and Dutch bicycles as well as mountain bikes.
If you’re looking to explore more of what the Costal de Sol has to offer, and want to squeeze in some exercise, we recommend hiring a bike.
