Important info


This is the title given to tours when clients set the price  of the tour. We consider it the fairest system and also ensures that our guides give their best service every tour.

Reservations are not strictly necessary but highly recommended, number of visitors are limited at every tour for quality purposes. If you haven’t booked, we strongly recommend arriving to the meeting point at least 15/10 minutes earlier in case the tour fills in. If you are a large group of 9 or more you will need to book a private tour.

There is no problem, usually there are spaces left and joining the tour later. Our guides will be there waiting on the meeting point until 10/15 minutes after the tour begins.

It’s a little harder than the free walking tour, however we consider it suitable for all ages.

We pass by a restroom we will stop at in case anyone needs it, but do not make a formal break during this tour.

No. We’re very sorry but it is not possible because of the many stairs of the fortress.

Málaga´s climate is marvelous. However during the summer it can get very hot so don’t forget your sunglasses, sun-tan lotion and a bottle of water. As well as comfortable shoes.

There is no problem but please let your guide know so he/she doesn’t wait for you at the next stop.
