Reasons for trip

Before sailing on the Harmony of the Seas we heard about free walking tours in Malaga and registered on line. The tours leave daily from the Place de la Constitution, which is only a five minute walk from the port gates. Pre-booking is not essential, but helpful to the guides. You simply turn up at 11am and join in. I think one or two people, even tagged on as we walked round.

Our guide was Amanda, and she was both informative and entertaining. We walked from the square to the Cathedral and then on to “Il Pimpi”, one of the most famous restaurants in Malaga. After sampling some of the wine made in the restaurant’s winery we walked through the restaurant to savour the atmosphere, if not the food. This was the only part of the whole tour where access in a wheelchair is not possible.

The whole tour lasted two hours and for the main part was flat, presenting little difficulty. However, towards the end of the tour, you climb up past the old Moorish fort. This could be challenging.

Although they are advertised as “Free walking tours” the guides effectively work for tips. You are asked to pay “what you think is reasonable. There is no obligation to pay anything and some people didn’t pay, although the contributions from those of us who did were gratefully received.

We certainly saw and learned a lot in our two hours and will do further “free walking tours” on future trips.
