Frequently Asked Questions

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

What does it mean that I choose the price of the Free Tour?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

It means that you are the person in charge of setting a price for the work of your guide once the visit is over.

 

Not having a fixed price is the main characteristic of a Free Tour, and it ensures the motivation and good work of your guide on each tour. 


If this is your first Free Tour, we would like to inform you that our visitors usually pay an average of €10 per person.

Is there access inside the monuments and museums mentioned in the itinerary?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

No. In 90 minutes, which is the approximate duration of this Free Tour, it is impossible to visit the interior of all the monuments and museums in the historic centre of Málaga.

Even so, from the outside your guide will explain its main characteristics and curiosities.

If you are interested in knowing in depth, the Málaga Cathedral or the Alcazaba & Roman Theatre, you are in luck because we have a specific Free Tour for each of them:

>> FREE TOUR MÁLAGA CATHEDRAL

>> FREE TOUR ALCAZABA & ROMAN THEATRE

Do I have to make a reservation to attend the Free Tour of the historic centre?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Yes. To offer you a quality guided tour of the historic centre of Málaga, this Free Tour has a limited number of available places and you need to reserve yours before they run out.

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

The guided tour, through the historic centre of Málaga, can be canceled if there are less than 4 people, but the truth is that this situation rarely happens.


To be exact, less than 2% of the tours throughout the year are cancelled, and if this is the case, we will contact you to offer you other alternatives.

Is the guided tour canceled if it rains or snows?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

No. Málaga has an average of 300 sunny days and only 50 days with light rainfall per year, so in case of rain, with a raincoat or an umbrella, you can easily complete the entire route.


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

Will you wait for me if I arrive late at the meeting point?

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 until 5 minutes after the start of the Free Tour, but after that time he will follow the route marked out in the itinerary.

Can I leave before the end of the Tour?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Yes, but before leaving, 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 do the Free Tour through the centre of Málaga in the company of my dog?

ico producto MAS.png
ico producto menos.png

Yes. Your furry friend will be able to accompany us throughout the tour as long as he is polite with the other Free Tour participants and has a valid vaccination record.
