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 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 19 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.

Your City Sightseeing pass is valid for 24 or 48 hours from first use, letting you create your own sightseeing itinerary. Buses depart every 30 minutes from each stop.

Hop-on, hop-off buses stop just a 10-minute walk from the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Malaga. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the tour and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

Malaga, Spain

Having gone to Malaga before, we expected to see some of the sites we visited before. However, this time we saw another part of Malaga that was just as exciting as the first time. It is a beautiful city full of history and architectural designs. It is a big and busy city but easier to move about.

Really enjoyed the hop-On and Hop-Off bus. Great way to see Malaga for the first time. Audio headsets provide non-stop information about the sights you are seeing. They were also available in several languages.

We enjoyed the tour very much. However, the boarding process took at least 30 min. In future, I would walk to the next boarding stop, which was simply across the street, and board there. We had purchased our tickets online which was very easy to do. Thank you Viator.

Viator never returned my emails of which I asked the questions of where we had to go to get on the hop on hop off bus. The lines were always very long even when we had bought the tickets on line. The only advantage is you save a few bucks but they over sell and the waiting under the sun was not fun.
