Hop-on Hop-off tourist Bus around in the City of Malaga
A great way to get your bearings around Malaga City and to take in the best sights in the process is to go on the Offical Tour bus. It’s easy to spot since it is the only red double decker with open roof bus you are likely to see in this part of the world. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours, so you can stop off along the way and carry on the tour later.
There are 14 stops on the Red route served by the red double decker bus running 10.00 to 19.00 every 20 to 30 mins taking 1hr 20min to complete the circular route. With multilingual commentary through headphones, you see the sights while hearing Malaga’s history. You’ll see the Port, Malagueta Beach, the Bullring, Gibralfaro Castle, Picasso’s birthplace, the Alcazaba and the Cathedral (and more).
The ticket also allows you to take the Green bus from the Main Bus Station and gain free entrance to the stunning Botanical Gardens Finca la Concepcion on the north side of the city. (Gardens close Mondays).
There are 5 stops on the Green route served by the green micro bus running 11.00 to 19.00 every 75 to 30 mins taking 30min to complete the circular route. There is no commentary on this bus.
Some disruption may occur to the timetable during the week of the Malaga Feria (fair) in August and Semana Santa in March/April.
