Malaga, Andalusia, Spain

Hello and welcome to one of Spain's most fascinating regions: Andalucía!

I am a Private Guide that offers Private tours all over Málaga and the Andalusian area! I always felt that Spain was my country, even if I was not born here. Since I was 5, my family spent every summer in the Catalan province of Tarragona and just after my graduation I decided to study Spanish in Málaga, the homeland of the sun. Many years have passed, many different places where I lived and worked here in Andalusia, and where I have spent almost all my adult life. After studying Business administration, in my early professional days I was involved in fashion and audio visual productions. But my true passion are history and history of arts, so life gave me the chance to switch to this wonderful and enriching profession as a guide. Since 1995 I am working as a professional tour leader and a licensed Official Guide of Andalusia, showing people from all over the world what makes this region so special! Thanks to my international background, I speak fluent several languages which allows me to communicate easily with visitors from all over the world.
However, every visit is unique, because you are unique! And that makes the difference! So, there isn't a standard speech about the monument, or the city or the region! I feel the requirements of my travelers. I know the sites, and you are here maybe only once in your lifetime and I wish to make you feel what is so amazing about the place where I live!

So I assume that you are looking for that difference!! I offer my service according to your needs, and according to what you wish to see. You will find in the descriptions the most requested tours; may they be an inspiration for your choice. If you don't find a suitable tour and wish a custom tour, please let me know all your main interests, in order to create your personal tailor-made custom tour!

As a licensed guide of Andalusia, we can visit together the splendid monuments as the Alhambra in Granada, the Real Alcazar and the Cathedral in Seville, we can tour the famous Mosque in Cordoba, go to Gibraltar, or even to Tangier. I am constantly travelling through the region, I know the most special sites to choose for you. Or maybe you just simply wish to discover the Route of the White Villages on the countryside or the fascinating City of Malaga, now considered as one of Spain's Top Destinations?

Please don't hesitate to contact me for other suggestions, special request, or larger groups!

Hasta pronto! See you soon, here in Andalusia!

**** Alhambra in Granada is often sold out! Please make sure to contact me with sufficent time in advance! 3 months prior to the date of your visit is recommendable.

All the pics on my profile site are mine, and videos are edited with my own pics. I love to take pics and will show the best spots.

*** For my tours I use a driver (one of my colleagues is a professional driver), who cares about the car, so I can concentrate on you and don't have to pay attention to traffic or parking search.

A Recent Review of this guide

We went to Ronda Spain with Maike. Everything about this tour exceeded our expectations. She brought many things to life with incredible detail that gave us a true picture of the times, the culture, the history and the beauty of the region. We left carrying many pleasant memories that we will not forget. We are already planning our next trip and will definitely use Maike again.
