  • Mijas, Marbella & Puerto Banús From Málaga

    1. Mijas, Marbella & Puerto Banús From Málaga

    You will start the trip to reach the typical village of Mijas. This town, located in the center of the Sierra de Mijas, is dominated by the ruins of an Arab palace. The town, typically Andalusian, is formed by narrow streets with white houses characterized by elegant wrought iron grilles. Later you will have free time to admire the great panorama of the coasts, the mountains and take a walk to discover this curious city. After the free time in Mijas you will resume the trip to Marbella, on arrival you will take a small panoramic overview of the city by bus and later a walk through the city, after the walk you can enjoy free time in the city. You will leave Marbella behind to continue towards Puerto Banús, a key point on the Costa del Sol for celebrities and the wealthy, enjoy free time to see its marina, its promenade or have a drink in one of its many establishments.

    Nice way to spend 7 hours on a Saturday. You get to wander around Mijas old town for about 1 hr 20 mins, then off to Puerto Banús for a quick look around. Finally you go to the centre of Marbella, where you have 2 hours to see the best bits: the old town and the beach. The multilingual guide is very helpful and is just with you on the bus. Recommended.

    The tour was simply amazing thanks to our great guide, Alexandra. My boyfriend and I had no previous experience with e-bikes, but this was absolutely no problem. We got a little introduction to the use of e-bikes and then we started riding. The route we rode through was really enjoyable with a lot of nice ways and views and we stopped every now and then to hear some stories and explanations about the area that we were looking at. Alexandra was super nice and caring the whole time. Really nothing to complain about.
