Frequently Asked Questions

These are the doubts that some visitors have before booking their Free Tour Málaga Cathedral

Do I really choose the price of the Free Tour?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

That's how it is. 

The main feature of a Free Tour, along with the fact that making the reservation is free, is that it does not have a fixed price.

You are the person in charge of putting a value on the work of your guide when the visit ends.

This guarantees the motivation and good work of your guide throughout the tour.


If it is the first time that you do a Free Tour, we inform you that our visitors usually pay an average of €10 per person.

When do I have to pay the entrance ticket to the Cathedral?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

At the meeting point, once the Free Tour begins, your guide will ask you to pay the entrance ticket to the Cathedral and will take care of all the procedures so that you can access the interior of the Temple through a preferential area, avoiding this way to wait.

To participate in the Free Tour Málaga Cathedral, do I have to book?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Yes, it is necessary that you reserve your place before they run out, since, in order to offer you a quality visit inside the Cathedral, this Free Tour has a limited number of available places.

Why can I only select a maximum of 7 people when booking?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

If you are a group of 8 or more people, you will need to secure a minimum payment or book a private tour just for you.

Send us a WhatsApp or an email and we will contact you to inform you about the best options and prices adapted to your needs.

If there are few reservations, will the Free Tour be cancelled?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

If there are less than 4 people, the guided visit to the Málaga Cathedral can be cancelled, but the truth is that this situation rarely happens (less than 2% in tours throughout the year).


If this is the case, we will contact you to offer you other alternatives and recommendations.

If it rains, is the visit to the Cathedral canceled?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

No. Most of the itinerary of this tour takes place inside the Cathedral, therefore, in case of rain with a light raincoat or an umbrella, you will be able to complete the entire tour without any problem.


However, if due to extreme conditions we had to cancel the tour, we would notify you in advance and offer you an alternative date.

If I arrive late at the meeting point, will you wait for me?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Out of respect for the rest of the group, NO.


Your guide will remain at the meeting point for up to 5 minutes after the start of the Free Tour, but after that time, you will access the interior of the Temple through the preferred area and continue with the route indicated in the itinerary.

Can I leave before the end of the visit?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Yes, but before doing so, notify your guide so that he, as well as the rest of the group, are not waiting for you at the next stop.

Can I access the Cathedral in the company of my dog?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Due to the Cathedral's own regulations, your dog will only be able to access the interior of the Temple if he has the accreditation as an assistance animal and is duly identified.

If your best friend accompanies you during the holidays and also wants to get to know Málaga, but does not have the accreditation required by the monument, we recommend you book:

>> FREE TOUR MÁLAGA HISTORIC CENTRE

>> FREE TOUR MYSTERIOUS MÁLAGA  


In any of these two Free Tours, your furry friend will be well received, as long as he is polite and friendly with the other participants and has his vaccination record in order.
