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!

A Recent Review of this guide
Maike is an excellent guide with great communication and knowledge skills of the city and arts. we spent time at the Picasso museum, seeing the art work with the detailed explanation by Maike was the best way to understand and appreciate Picasso work. we also enjoyed the special sound communication she provided us.
