Payment & cancellations
No, advance deposit or prepayment is not required, our policy is to trust our travelers. Exceptions may apply at our own discretion, like large groups where we may require a deposit or full payment in advance
Tours must be booked in our contact form, we accept bookings even one hour before our tours start. Last minute tours can be also accepted via email, SMS or via Whatsapp / Instagram. We only accept cash in local currency (Euros). We are working hard to introduce new methods of payments as credit cards. PayPal is also accepted upon request but always before the tour starts

Before the Tour
If a tour is sold out on a date you want please contact us and let us know how many are in your party and which date you are interested in. Sometimes we add another tour on the same day given enough demand so it doesn’t hurt to ask!
Yes. The tours are held rain or shine. You should dress appropriately for the day’s weather conditions and bring an umbrella if necessary. Luckily the weather in Malaga is very pleasant and we have warm temperatures, around 15C / 59F in cold months (December to February) and 25C / 77F in warm months (March to November). In the rare event that we cancel the tour due to weather, you will be able to reschedule to another time/date, we are very flexible
ELDERLY GUESTS: We invite the whole family to experience our tours. However guests should note that our tours are between 2 or 3 hours in length and feature standing and walking. Good news! The city center of Malaga is totally flat and level, with no cobble stoned streets but shinny marble pavement.
CHILDREN/TEENS: We offer tours for both children and adolescents (and kids under 3 are free if they don’t require their own portion of food) so families are definitely welcome on tour. However, keep in mind some children/teens have a limited attention span and may not enjoy the historical and cultural aspects that are a part of our tour offerings (specially the standing/walking involved across the 3 hour tour), but we ultimately leave it up to the parents to decide if our tours are right for them
The whole city center and all places we visit are wheelchair friendly, Malaga was chosen in 2014 as the most accessible city in Europe
Well, we have to say that parking in Malaga can be a difficult mission, the whole Old Town is pedestrian and car free, plus street parking throughout is not free but metered.

Our food and culture tours are so much more than that. Our tours center around areas that have wonderful, rich history and architecture.

Guests who are vegetarians, or have other dietary restrictions, as well as non-alcoholic drinkers, can be accommodated on all our tour offerings with advanced notice.
We actually are wonderful at accommodating some dietary restrictions but must know in advance so we can prepare adequately for those needs. In most cases guests will still experience local cuisine on the tour that fits in with their dietary needs. (NOTE: the tour price will remain the same, even if non-alcoholic versions are provided)
Wear proper shoes for walking. Protect your skin from the strong sun by wearing sun block and/or a hat, even though most of our tour are through narrow streets. Please give advance notice of diet restrictions (allergies, vegetarians, etc.)
