Malaga, Spain - This tour includes a driving tour of Malaga, a walking tour of the old town and a visit to the Gibralfaro Castle. Then you travel along the Costa del Sol to visit the famous resort towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus.

Malaga is located on Spain's Costa del Sol, or coast of the sun. Many people visit here just to lie on the beach or enjoy the nightlife. The city was a Roman settlement which was later occupied by Arabs before they were expelled by the Spanish Catholics. It became a major port in the early days of the New World.

After meeting your private guide you start with a panoramic driving tour to see the city park of Malaga with its Customs building, the Small house of the Gardener, the bank of Spain and the City council. At General Torrijos Square you see the Noble Hospital and the Tres Gracias Fountain. Other sights include the Malagueta bull ring, the Justice Palace and the English cemetery.

Next you visit the Gibralfaro Castle which sits on the highest hill in the city and is connected to the Alcazaba Palace Fortress. Together this complex of buildings is the best preserved Arab monument in the city.

After visiting the castle you drive into Malaga's city center where you enjoy a walking tour of the historical old town. During your tour you will see the birth home of Picasso and the church where he was baptized, Santiago's Church, which is one of the oldest in the city. You will learn about General Torrijois at the monolith built in his honor as well as enjoy an interior visit to the city's Cathedral. Other sights included are the Roman Theater and the Arab Palace Fortress from the 11th century.

A short amount of free time is provided for lunch (meal not included)

Next you drive the Costa del Sol en route to the most famous resort town of Marbella. This resort is home to ultra deluxe hotels and millionaire's mansions. Upon arrival you will enjoy a short walking tour followed by some free time for you to stroll the famous beach front or do some shopping.

Almost as exclusive is Puerto Banus, your next stop. Again you enjoy a short walking tour followed by free time. It won't take long for you to enjoy the jet setters lifestyle. As you return to the port in Malaga you will see the Mosque and Sea Palace of the king of Saudi Arabia as well as pass other important resort towns such as Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Mijas to name a few.
