Malaga Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Malaga Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Malaga Shore Excursion: Malaga City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

When your ship docks at Malaga cruise terminal, get to know this picturesque Spanish city on a hop-on, hop-off bus tour. Simply board the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus and discover the best attractions of this lovely seaside city, famous as the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and known for its tree-lined boulevards and golden sandy beaches.

Sit back and absorb the views on the roughly 90-minute loop as you learn about the landmarks and the city’s history from the onboard, recorded audio commentary. Admire the leafy boulevards and lush parks, and drink in the views of the handsome architecture and sweeping sands.

When you’re ready, hop off at any of the 14 stops around the city to sightsee as you wish. Perhaps step off to visit the city’s imposing cathedral and learn why it’s called La Manquita — the one-armed lady in Spanish!

Maybe immerse yourself in Picasso’s art at the Picasso Museum (Museo Picasso Málaga); stroll around the glorious Botanical Gardens (Jardín Botánico); or visit Gibralfaro Castle (Castillo de Gibralfaro), the medieval fortress perched above the city. They’re just a few of the many activities you can enjoy during your hop-on, hop-off tour.

    Don't walk! Take the bus! The best way to see this gorgeous city! Not too far from the pier. You do have to walk a little way. Buses come on time. Easy to use.

    I am disabled and use a motorized scooter and I was traveling alone with my 82 year old mother. The plus about this tour was that the bus stop was conveniently located near the ship. I just stayed on the bus and did a complete circle trip and feel like I really saw Malaga. The bus driver was very kind assisting me on and off the bus. Would definitely recommend this tour.

    This was the best way to explore since we were only in port for a few hours. We saw all the important stuff and had a great time.

    HOHO is the only reasonable way to get an overview of a city. I had not been there in years and it was fun to see the new and old side by side. We spent over an hour at the Gibralfaro castle - wonderful views from the ramparts and a quite lovely small museum.

    This was an excellent HOHO tour. Make sure you take your paper voucher Viator specifies you need to do that. From where our ship was docked, it was very easy to get to the HOHO bus. We got off the ship, walked thru the building, crossed the street and headed for stop 7 which was at the lighthouse. We took the HOHO all the way around first and noted places that we would like to get off. The entire trip around was about 60 - 80 minutes depending on traffic. Recommend getting off at stop 13 or 5 - the 2 stops are across street from each other. That is where park is. It is a nice place to walk around and there are bathrooms. Malaga is a lovely city - very walkable, tropical and quite interesting. It was pretty warm so sunscreen is a must. Might want to take an umbrella to keep the sun off. A few of the stops required an entry fee to see more than just the outside of the attraction. The buses seemed to run ever 20 - 30 minutes.

    Excellent view of most of Madiera. We really enjoyed the green line trip to the small fishing village.
