Malaga– Two day cruise stop
Arrived for a two day stop in Malaga; had planned to see the non hilly areas via bike and tackle the hills on a segway. Due to the wet conditions on
Day #1, we followed the advice of our vendor and switched from bikes to a walking tour, Kay Farrell (www.malagabiketours.eu) was extremely flexible with our booking, quickly taking care of refunding the difference between the two different tours which we had already paid for in advance. Our 2hr walk with our guide Fenne turned into an enjoyable 4 hr tour of the city that included: city market, free sampling of local wines, cathedral and renovated beach area…to name a few. Following the tour, my wife and I made our way to La Canasta – a bakery recommended by our guide as ‘the best’ – for some light snacks including the famous local serrano ham.
Day #2 was our segway and hill challenge. If you want to visit the Castle of Gibralfaro (we did!) which is located on the highest hill in the city and plan on walking to the top, have your walking shoes ready! However, you can choose the easy and fun way like we did and ride segways to the top! Great tour and fun activity – only complaint is that we were time limited due to when we left port that day. Estephania (www.segwaymalagatours.com), our informative and excellent guide, was filled with information and I wish our tour could have lasted longer. Another lovely Spanish town that deserves another visit.
