Our tour wa fantastic.The bike ride was flat and coveredthe downtown area as well as the beach area. Lizzie, our tour guide was enthusiastic, informative and clearly in love with her city. The 4hour tour was a great value - it included a stop in a beachside cafe. We were not limited on what beverage we could have. It gave the tour members a chance to interact with each other and to get to know Lizzie. During our tour, two other members joined us after they were stood up by another biking tour co. The owner of Malaga Bike Tours escorted them to our tour only after bringing them first to the sites we had already covered. That was extremely impressive. The tour was a great way to familiarize ourselves with the area in a find and informative way. We were able to experience sites that are frequented by tourists and locals. This is a must do. The staff and company are excellent. An unexpected surprise were the pictures taken by Lizzie of our group and the emailing of those pics to all of us! What a great little bonus...a very personalized feature to a small, intimate tour. Lastly, we asked for lunch recommendations and Lizzie pointd out one of her favourite tapas places and later gave us a book with restaurant recommendations. A group of us went off to find Lizzie's place. It was local, delicious and a great value. The companionship of our tour buddies made the placeeven better. Thank you Lizzie and Malaga Bike Tours !!!!
Best way to discover Malaga in a short and effective way. Highly recommend it to everybody visiting Malaga!
