FOOD TOURS/COOKING CLASSES

Our tours are carried out in English, but are as well available in German or Spanish. If there are participants of different nationalities/languages it will be mainly done in English.

Our Food Tours and Cooking Classes are carried out in areas which are partially or totally accessible. Our effort and concern when we design each Tour is to provide a service for all, valuing access conditions, circulation and facilities in each one of the establishments. Please check with us when booking, if you have any special requirements.

Our weather is generally sunny with a few rainy days, but the tours are held rain or shine. We advise you to check the weather conditions for your tour date, dress appropriately and bring an umbrella if necessary.

The priority of these tours is that you can enjoy our gastronomy and get to know places otherwise difficult to discover. So in most of the cases it should be possible, but keeping always in mind the needs of the entire group! If it wasn’t possible, we would get you in touch with the establishment and give you directions to get there, once the tour is over.
Yes!
On our Food Tours, bathrooms are available throughout the tour. Your guide will  let you know and remind you throughout the tour.
On our Cooking Classes you’ll have access to the bathroom in our kitchen at all times.
In general, our tours are quite active. We walk through the old town of Malaga and stop in several restaurants and shops. It is not always possible to have a seat, as this is part of our real Tapas Culture.
In our cooking courses you can always sit, but in the tours during the morning there is also a visit to the Atarazanas market included (about 1 hour). The cooking school is 10 minutes away.
Of course! We will send them to you by e-mail. So you can take a bit of Malaga home with you.

However, strollers are allowed on our evening Cooking Classes.
