Malaga Bike Tours is a nice way to spend a morning or afternoon in the City.
Our delightful tour guide, Sanne, had a well-thought out plan for our 4 hour journey.
Although some parts of the City are untenable on bicycle during the busy parts of the day, we managed to squeeze our way through crowds. That, I would say, was the only down side of bike riding in Malaga. This is just part of the hustle and bustle of urban bike riding, of course, not a down side to the tour itself. There were parts of the tour where getting off your bike and walking the bike was the better alternative, but it would be that way while riding through any urban area however, having the bike versus walking enabled us to go further and faster than we could have if this was a walking tour. We were able to not only tour the downtown area, the market and main plazas, but we also rode through the City gardens and down along the esplanade along the beach, where we were able to stop for a drink at a cafe on the beach. This was a lovely end to the tour. Sanne had a treasure trove of stories to share, and her kind and patient demeanor enriched the experience. I would recommend this tour to couples, singles and families. The great thing about a half day tour is that you still have time to explore on your own for a few hours before you run back to your ship or hotel.
Great job Malaga bike tours
