What people are saying about Marbella

What a wonderful tour, it was more like waking around town chatting with a friend. Lana is passionate about making sure her guests enjoy the tour. She shared so much information and history on Marbella, this was a very nice change to the usual 'wine & tapas' tours in Europe. It was a comfortable walk around the old town, olive oil tasting was phenomenal, as were the tapas and wine tasting. This tour is more bespoke than the typical, if you're looking to just walk from one bar to another, choose another tour, but you will truly be missing out.

Such a fun experience. Even though we’ve been to old town several times we got to see parts where we’ve never been. A cultural and gastronomic experience I’ve never had before!

Our guide was really nice. He knows a lot about the city and its life style. All the bar and clubs were also very nice

A guide attentive to our needs to better appreciate the nightlife of Puerto Banus. I recommend.

Very interesting, enjoyable terrain and views Freddie our guide was excellent
