What to expect
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.

Not really worth the money
Nov 2019 • Friends
We bought a 24 hour hop on hop off ticket on the saturday we were there. The bus stop was opposite our hotel which was handy but when we set off we spent half an hour going in the opposite direction and ended up outside our hotel again and there was nothing really to see in that half hour. The highlight was going up to the castle as it would have been a tremendous slog to walk up but apart from that everywhere else is quite walkable...unless you really to go to the castle it's better to walk

Dear Karen, Thank you for taking the time to review our tour at TripAdvisor. Your comments help us know where to invest our efforts and continue to improve. Our buses in Malaga follow the most complete tour possible, according to the possibilities the city offers. And each stop is designed to allow you to visit a particular monument or museum nearby. In addition, we created our walking tours to provide a guided tour through the quarters that our buses cannot access and we recommend them as a great way to complete your visit. We take note of your comments and hope to see you again soon at your next City Sightseeing Destination. Kind Regards,

Sep 2018
I didn't want to seem like a tourist, but I am so glad I got on board. There was no way I could have driven or walked to the places that the tour bus took me to, I would recommend to do this at least on your first two days, just so you can get an Idea of where to go..

Hop on hop off with walking tour and boat ride
We like to start off in a new city with a hop on hop off tour to get a good overview of the city and the highlights. According to our booking confirmation that we received, a walking tour was included and to go at a specific landmark at 12:30 to start the tour. We waited 15 minutes and no walking tour. When we did get on a bus they informed us that the walking tour started at a totally different location close to the port. I asked an official with the company that since it was their error could they give us a rain check for in a few days as we had other engagements already booked. The answer was a disappointing NO.
The boat ride was ok but stayed only in the bay.
The bus part was good.

Excellent intro to this great city
May 2018
Cruising in to Malaga??
Shops and main part of town are close to the cruise terminal.
Hop on Hop off stops at cruise terminal and is a great intro to the city.
If you have the full day spend several hours seeing the sights and then from the last stop you are close to main town shops and restaurants, and a very easy walk back to your ship.
Great value for money.

Poor experience
Mar 2018 • Couples
The information given in the tour was poor, we learnt more from the man driving the horse drawn carriage than the commentary on the bus, the part of the town by the train and bus station was uninteresting, the only thing we didn't get from the carriage tour was the ride up to Castillo de Gibralfaro, but you can walk that in 20 minutes and it was worth the walk, disappointed considering all the red bus tours we have done around the world.

Dear Jan, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor. Your comments help us continue to improve our service. We are glad you have enjoyed our tours in several destinations and are sorry to hear that the Málaga tour did not fulfill your expectations. Our buses provide the most complete tour possible, but in some cities due to narrow streets or the protection of historical buildings our buses are denied access to the city centre. For this reason, we created our walking tour, also included in our ticket, to provide a cultural guided tour around the historical quarters. We take note of your comments and hope to see you again soon at your next City Sightseeing Destination. Kind Regards,

Unfortunate!
Feb 2018
We were not very pleased with this tour and advise tourists to beware when booking this excursion. The lady who sold it to us charged us 29 euros. She did not mention that there were two options - one without the boat tour which we never requested in the first place for 20 euros and one with the boat tour for 29 euros...making a difference of 18 euros for two people! . Needless to say, we never went on the boat tour. It was a cool day on the water and we just did not have the time. If the salesgirl had given us the option we would not have taken it and we feel we were "ripped off" so please be careful because we would not have been aware of this different pricing until we heard another salesperson offering the tour for 20 euros.

Great way to see a port of call inexpensively
Feb 2018 • Couples
This Port city has very good stops for Hop on hop off tour. Especially loved the Castillo de Gibralfaro! Definitely bring raincoat if any chance of, as the majority of seats are up top. Some have covers, some not...so could get a wet seat as well (a spare paper napkin, tissue or bus map could come in handy :). All in all, I would definitely recommend for 2 travelers, otherwise getting a van taxi and splitting fair around town might work out cheaper and wouldn’t have to stand in line at bus to get on as most people pay when getting on.
