What You Can Expect
Hop on a bicycle and take a guided small-group bike tour past the historical sights of Malaga. Meet your local guide and make your way through the narrow streets of the old Jewish and Arabic neighborhoods. Ride past the beautiful 11th-century Alcazaba, a former Muslim palace, the Roman Theater and the Cathedral of Malaga. See the interesting architecture of the Carmen Thyssen Malaga Museum, near the Sagrado Corazon (Sacred Heart Church).
Next, tour Malaga's central market and stop to sample local delicacies (own expense) like jamón (dry-cured ham) or several types of cheese. Discover what daily life in Malaga is all about as you watch locals gather for drinks in bars and cafes near the market, and hear funny anecdotes from your guide about Picasso as you cycle past the painter's birthplace and the Picasso Museum.
Continue your tour along Paseo del Parque, a botanical garden in central Malaga, located on the promenade. Feel the warm air as you cycle by the beautiful waterfront and take in views of the Mediterranean Sea and Malaga’s beach. Enjoy a short break at a beach bar, where you can relax and have a drink (own expense) while your guide shares interesting tips about what else to see and where to eat in Malaga.
Next, follow your guide along the Paseo del Parque, passing by the Malaga town hall and the Bank of Spain, toward La Malagueta, Malaga's bullring. On weekdays, enjoy a short guided tour of the bullring and learn about Spain's bullfighting tradition.
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.
Malaga Bike Tours is a nice way to spend a morning or afternoon in the City.
Our delightful tour guide, Sanne, had a well-thought out plan for our 4 hour journey.
Although some parts of the City are untenable on bicycle during the busy parts of the day, we managed to squeeze our way through crowds. That, I would say, was the only down side of bike riding in Malaga. This is just part of the hustle and bustle of urban bike riding, of course, not a down side to the tour itself. There were parts of the tour where getting off your bike and walking the bike was the better alternative, but it would be that way while riding through any urban area however, having the bike versus walking enabled us to go further and faster than we could have if this was a walking tour. We were able to not only tour the downtown area, the market and main plazas, but we also rode through the City gardens and down along the esplanade along the beach, where we were able to stop for a drink at a cafe on the beach. This was a lovely end to the tour. Sanne had a treasure trove of stories to share, and her kind and patient demeanor enriched the experience. I would recommend this tour to couples, singles and families. The great thing about a half day tour is that you still have time to explore on your own for a few hours before you run back to your ship or hotel.
