Personal description
Greetings from Malaga, Andalusia! I am Daniel Ortega, and my next to none Job is a private guide in Malaga Spain. I love what I do and think that Malaga and Andalusia is one of the most beautiful regions in the world. I was born here and ever since my childhood I was interested in its history and Culture. I do not think there is some thing I wouldn't know about this wonderful region. Due to all these reasons I decided to dedicate myself to the tourism field and provide a top notch service of a private guide.

Description
If you are a cruise ship passenger during your Mediterranean cruise the visit to Malaga will become the highlight of your entire trip. There, however, some other interesting cities you may explore as well. Daniel's Tours & TarifaTravel will happily arrange your Shore Excursions in Granada, Cordoba and Mijas. You may book one of our guided shore tours or we can offer you a tailor-made private shore excursion, customized especially for you.

If you plan to visit by air or railway you are welcome to book these tours too - they cover all the "must sees".

Please note: the tour involves walking so comfortable shoes are recommended. The number of inside visits is approximate and may vary due to the privately booked events.

Accompanied by a friendly professional English speaking guide you will see the best sights of the Old city of Malaga. I will tell you the stories and legends about the best preserved medieval town in the Southern Europe.

you will be met right at the cruise ship pier with a sign with your name on it or at the reception of your hotel. From there you will walk to Old Town of Malaga highlights such as The cathedral is one of the most beautiful in Spain(1487), The Alcazaba in Calle Alcazabilla/Closed Mondays.

The Alcazaba is the best preserved Moorish fortress in Spain. It sits on the hill that overlooks the city of Malaga. The Moors built this fort over the remains of a Roman fort. The first fortress was built in the 8th century but was completely rebuilt in the 11th century for King Badis of Granada. The fortress is connected to the Gibralfaro Castle.

Behind the City Hall there is an elevator that carries one to the fortress, it was cleverly designed because at two gates the path doubles back to make it harder to attack the fortress. In 1487 the fortress was captured after a long siege by the Catholic Kings (Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand). In 1931 the Alcazaba was named a National Monument. Antigua Casa de Guardia, Alameda Principal is the oldest tavern in Malaga, and it was founded in 1840. Calle Larios, is a monument to Manuel Domingo Larios y Larios (1836-1895). He was the firstborn son of the first Marques de Larios and he inherited a large fortune from his father and also the title. The Malaga Park, The city park lies beside the port and goes from the Plaza de la Marina to the Plaza del General Torrijos.

one can see the City Hall, the Bank of Spain (the most beautiful building in the city in Art Deco style), and the University building, which has an art gallery that is free to visitors.

The park is 800 meters long and occupies a space of 30,000 square meters.There are also ponds and springs. During spring one can smell the perfume wafting through the park from the new blossoms.

Just below the Alcazaba are the Gardens of Puerta Oscura. These were designed by the architect Guerrero Strachan and run along the hill, below the walls of the fortress. It has many interesting trees and plants, with small terraces, fountains, bowers, and footpaths. One can get a good view of the big park and the port from this hillside. Museo del Vidrio y Cristal de Malaga, The Museum of Glass and Crystal is the only museum of its kind in Andalusia and it opened on Sept. 1, 2009. The museum displays about 700 objects of glass and crystal, dating from Egyptian and Roman times to the present.

The Palacio de Villalon dates from the 16th century and was occupied by the Fernandez de Villalon Family. A source says that Fernandez de Villalon was a conquistador. Malaga is one of the few places in Spain where you can see two monuments at one time while you are eating. The view is worth 1 million euros!

Experience the magnificent panoramic views from Malaga Hill.You will have an opportunity to discover not only its history during this splendid walk but also the everyday life of the locals. After the tour you will have about 30-45 min to do extra shopping, sightseeing and dining in Old Town before returning to your ship or hotel.
