Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent 4 nights in Malaga which was a delight and a wonderful surprise of a City. Because we didn’t know it at all, and also happen to love good, local cuisine and food markets, we booked the Tapas & Markets tour for our first day so we could get our bearings and avoid wasting time getting lost!
We also liked the fact the tour group size can be small and personalised as there were only two of us (although they often work with larger groups of friends, families and corporate parties).

From the first point of enquiry, we were extremely impressed with the professional communications we received from Michael & Laura. Laura then met us at our hotel and off we went on a wonderful exploration of Malaga. From the get-go it was like meeting up with a good friend who knew the city and special places like the back of their hand and were just delighting in showing us all the best parts.
Laura was fantastic company and shared so much info and inside knowledge as we walked around the pretty lanes of Malaga.

We were first taken to a super family-run tapas restaurant where we were very happy to let Laura order and surprise us . Ahead of our meeting, we’d already submitted dietary requirements but then Laura had very cleverly gleaned from us what we liked, loved and didn’t much care for in our early chats and came up with some great dish selections that we would never have discovered on our own (the Sombrito was extremely special!) We also learnt about local wines and favourite Summer drinks which, when we ordered afterwards made us appear like Locals ;)
Next was a bar/restaurant with more of a contemporary fusion spin on tapas, which was sooo good as well.

Then onto the vibrant, colourful and buzzing food market, housed in a lovely building (don’t miss the beautiful stained glass window). Laura seemed to know all of the vendors really well and was so helpful in giving us tips of what to buy, how to cook things, the history of the market etc etc. It was so much nicer going round with someone who had these great relationships and could show us all the highlights. We bought some delicious almonds, amazing Serrano ham and anything else we could squeeze into our cases!

Our final stop was a beautiful tapas restaurant / vinoteca. Again, Laura knew the proprietor very well and we felt we were certainly receiving VIP treatment as a consequence :) More amazing food and wine followed and we were truly fit to burst.

After such a great time we were sorry it had to come to an end but we will definitely return to Malaga and have another tour and big catch up with Laura :)

We cannot recommend this company highly enough - Laura and Michael are absolute gems and know Malaga inside out.
Don’t hesitate to book and make it at the start of your visit if you can. We were then able to return to one of the restaurants on another evening and order our entire meal all over again as it was just soooo good!

Was given this tour as a retirement gift for our trip to Malaga. Didn’t know exactly what to expect, but just wish we did it our first days here. Laura is very knowledgeable and an absolute delight, and she made this a fabulous experience. Started in the “Market” where she explained the different cuisines of Spain. She introduced us to many new foods, and we sampled some of these with the various vendors. Then off to 3 different tapas bars, where she had us dine on multiple tapas that she chose for us, each one as tasty as the next. Also tried several different wines to complement the food. Thank you to my staff for this wonderful gift, and to Laura for a wonderful culinary adventure.

Incredible experience. Tapas so tasty that we ordered several and only had no more because there was no room in our stomachs. Unusual and full-flavored wine. Excellent service.

We tried to do the tour pre-covid so have waited 4 years and it most certainly didn't disappoint. Hubby is the foodie of the family and will eat anything, I'm the cautious / fussy one! From the outset we (I) trusted Michael and left him in charge of ordering. I found some of the food 'interesting', but was determined to try everything. He mixed up traditional tapas bars with modern fusion bars. His knowledge of Malaga, tapas and food is wide and varied. He's a charming and interesting man; four hours simply flew by. We enjoyed one of the tapas bars so much we returned before leaving Malaga. Would certainly recommend Tapas in Malaga and look forward to taking a tour again.

Michael was beyond awesome with our shore excursion extended tapas tour. His love for the city showed as he explained the history, culture, and beautiful sites. We explored 5 different restaurants each having something special. Michael’s detail to attention allowed him cater to our needs while extending our horizon. We honestly tried and enjoyed things out of comfort zone because of Michael.

We will most definitely take the same tour or another one with Michael in the near future.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review - it was wonderful to spend the time with the four of you and I am delighted that you enjoyed things you would not normally have ordered. I sincerely hope that we will see you back in this beautiful city in the not too distant future.

Even if you done tapas bars before like myself and my wife you really can learn something new from this guys they are really well inform what new is happening with new recipes and where is the best place to try them We were quite impressed with local history knowledge and some of the gossip stories. To enjoy tapas you need good company of course and that was another surprise when we met our tour guide which sounds very formal but after few minutes we realized that we actually feel like we know Michel for many years and we just catching up for few tapas and drinks on Saturday afternoon What the great way to spend few hours browsing tapas bar with someone who is doing this since 2006 . One more very important thing to add no need to worry you will finish the tour hungry quite opposite ,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It was delightful to meet you and to share in your special wedding anniversary!! We love it when people leave our tours feeling that they have spent a few hours with a friend. That is definitely what makes us stand out. We sincerely hope to see you in the city again soon.

3 tapas tours in 3 years with TapasinMalaga.! I think that is endorsement enough. Each tour uniquely different. Michael and Lauras knowledge of the food, drink and the beautiful city of Malaga is fantastic. I have eaten and thoroughly enjoyed dishes that I would never have ordered. Plenty of food and drink - absolutely stuffed by the end. Definitely value for money. Both Michael and Laura are great company and I'm sure I will join them again on a tour.

Having thought that Malaga was just an airport city, I was somewhat concerned when on e of our group booked a walking tapas tour. I can honestly say that it was exceptional. Michael has amazing knowledge and the contacts to make you feel like a VIP. The food and venues were amazing as was the city of Malaga. Will definitely return!

It was lovely to meet you and fantastic to know that you enjoyed the tour, food, wine and the city so much. Malaga is unique and the historic centre is an absolute delight and our food scene is spectacular. Malaga is more than just an airport and so many people miss out by not spending a few days in this stunning city. Come back and party soon!

If you’re looking to see Malaga as you’ve never seen it before and want to experience some truly excellent food and wine then look no further than here. On a golfing holiday with the lads (“lads” is probably overstating or - most of us approaching or over 50). This is the second tour we have been on with Michael and I did wonder how it would differ. Well it did and in a positive way. The wine and cheese place at the end (forget the name) was truly amazing. Highly recommended.

Having been to Malaga several times Michael’s tour added another dimension to our appreciation of Malaga. Felt very much like having a meal with a friend. Would definitely recommend and will do again.

Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review. it is always lovely to introduce our guests who know Málaga to places that they would probably never find on their own and also to introduce them to new dishes that they would never order if they saw it on the menu. Those baby broad beans cooked with the local cured ham are an absolute delight - so sweet too!! Hopefully see you soon for a repeat!!
