Ride on the beach promenade to Malaga's modern port, from where you will get a beautiful view of the city's skyline, and then make your way back to your departure point.
This was the best tour of the ten we took on this vacation. Kay made it an education and it was great getting really close and involved with the stops we made. The city was flatter than I first thought when I saw it and the riding was easier than I expected so it would be great for many ages. I don't think I'd take young children as there is a lot of riding around walkers so you have to stay on your toes, but then you get to stop, the guide tells you all about the location and then you move along. FUN TIME!
Excellent all the way! Led by the wonderfully friendly and extremely knowledgable Kay! Ideal way to start to an exploration of this fascinating and beautiful city. Highly recommend it!
