Malaga Shore Excursion: Private Malaga City Sightseeing Tour with Tapas

activities / Guided tours

Tour description provided by Viator

When your cruise ship arrives in port in Malaga, head out on a city sightseeing shore excursion. This half-walking, half-bus private tour is the best combination of Malaga sightseeing and dining. Accompanied by a food guide, you will discover Malaga’s most beautiful sights and sample tapas in the city’s best bars.

From the top of the bus, you'll see the Cathedral of Malaga, constructed between 1528 and 1782 and nicknamed La Manquita (“the One-Armed Lady”) and the Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress built in the 11th century and the exterior of the Picasso Museum.

The following walking tour starts with a guided visit of the interior of Gibralfaro and continues with the exterior of the Plaza de Toros, the Roman Theatre and the Plaza de la Merced.

After listening to your private guide’s insightful commentary you’ll be hungry! Your guide will lead you to two typical tapas bars to try authentic Spanish tapas. Nibble on food like Spanish omelets, sandwiches with Serrano ham and Spanish olive oil, and fresh-made chips. During the tour, your English-speaking guide will explain the traditions behind Spain's food and wine, and advise you on local specialties.

Before returning to port, you will have free time to explore Malaga’s pretty plazas and lush gardens.
