Great to get through all of Malaga and the surrounding area first, hop on and off afterwards and finally take the bus to the train station. Especially nice to get both around the harbor and up the mountain behind Malaga. Please note that you only drive past but not into the center and "old town", but you can easily walk there.

We found the meeting point quite easily (just in front of the station entrance). . We appreciated the stops that allow you to get off to visit. If we had had more time we would have taken the complete formula to be able to visit the important places of the city (Alcazaba, Picasso Museum, etc…)

Loved the area covered by the red route - unfortunately didn't have time to try the green or blue. Ideally you would need 2 days to cover the whole thing. The tour gave us a good idea of the city layout and places we wanted to explore. Only complaint is that it was very difficult to work out where the stops were , particularly for starting the tour. I was sent a better map on the day of the tour too late to help us. Given incorrect info about Pompidou opening times , guide assured us it was open on Tuesday and it wasn't.
