My name is Mercedes and I am an Experienced and Licensed Malaga Tour Guide (Costa del Sol - Spain ). If you enjoy Discovering and learning about the place you are about to visit from a local point of view , certainly I am the Guide you are looking for.
My family is originally from Madrid , I was raísed in this Beautiful City and followed University Studies ( Tourism and Economics ) and developed a passion for languajes history and new cultures , I became a Tour Guide and got my Oficial Guiding License From the Madrid Tourism Council.
At first I worked Accompanying Groups across Europe as well as a Local Tour Guide . These experiences with tourists of various cultures gave me a deeper awareness of the many issues that arise when dealing with a visitor's idea of a "Perfect Tour" …… but, very soon, I drew a passion for the South of Spain , its Art, History and Andalusian Culture .
So, I started a new adventure by moving to Malaga City where I now live , a Brilliant city in every sense: Cosmopolitan and friendly , modern and traditional, lively at night and quite during the day and with an average annual temperature of around 20ºC . . . .
MALAGA IS JUST MADE FOR YOU !!! Here you will view and admire the monumental heritage which Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs have left us , enjoy the beauty of the art in display and then try the exquisite gastronomy while you enjoy a drink on a terrace of a bar. . .
MY GOAL is to transmit to you my love for this area, to make of your visit a Local Living Experience , to make you feel as a "Malagueño"as you get an insight of the true Spain. Working as a Guide is a fundamental part of my life . I love sharing Knowledge and Experiences but , above all, I love our Guests to discover our Beautiful Cities, Traditions and Spanish Way of Life.
My Tours can be TAILORED TO FIT your personal interest and likings!! I would love to be your host during your stay in my city , please feel free to write to me if you have any questions about my Tours .
Looking forward to welcoming you to Málaga !!!! . . . . Hasta la vista !!!!!!!

Mercedes was knowledgeable, warm and very friendly. We had a wonderful day with her learning all about Malaga, seeing the sights, and even shopping with her. She became an instant friend and like a member of the family. We highly recommend her.
