There are dozens of tours and excursions available to explore Málaga City, but none quite like iCachr Málaga’s sightseeing treasure hunts!
Elizabeth and Matthias, the founders of this innovative tour company, have taken sightseeing to a more interactive and enjoyable level, by incorporating it into an exciting treasure hunt which will take you on a memorable journey of discovery. You’ll visit all of Malaga’s top sights and attractions as well as interesting ‘not- quite-so-famous’ ones. You’ll have to find hidden clues along the way which will lead you to the ‘Secret Treasure of Málaga’.
For your adventure, you’ll be given a treasure hunting bag containing a modern GPS compass, a treasure book and other fun gadgets.
There’s no need to follow a massive tour group around the city, trying to keep up with an overly energetic tour guide. With an iCachr tour, it’s just you, your compass and a treasure book which contains all the stations you’ll explore, at your own pace, on this city tour.
After a brief introduction and explanation from your tour guide, you’ll head off on your adventure in search of the hidden treasure. You’ll have to pass by several ‘stations’ solving small riddles or finding hidden clues along the way. But don’t worry, these small tasks don’t take long and you’ll have plenty of time to do your own exploring too.
The final stop on your sightseeing treasure hunt should bring you to the coveted ‘secret treasure of Málaga’ and a rendezvous with your tour-guide.
So how does it work?
The GPS compass you’re given is easy to use, so you needn’t worry about getting lost. You simply have to follow the arrow on the screen and enjoy the stunning sights of Málaga. But, just in case, you’ll also be equipped with a mobile phone containing your treasure guide’s contact number. If you have any questions or queries whilst exploring Málaga, just grab the phone and dial.
The other vital piece of your treasure hunting kit is the treasure book. Every double page in this booklet contains one of the stations you will visit; on the left you’ll find interesting cultural facts and information as well as Elizabeth and Matthias’ insider tips and on the right side, you’ll find your next task or riddle to solve in order to get to the next clue.
