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.

Well-organized trip, nice staff. I kind of would have wanted to have more time in the destinations but that’s not a minus for the organisers of the trip itself. Would recommend this for everyone.

I couldn’t fault a thing! Everything was perfect! Perhaps we didn’t have much time in each place but that’s the case with organized tours! Awesome guide perfect organization, nice A/C-d bus!

Had a very nice day, tour guide told a lot about the history. We were given enough time to view everything on our own. Definitely worth it.

superb excursion, top guide she spoke French, top driver, enough time to visit the 3 cities with the guide's relevant information.
