Mercedes helped to make my trip to Malaga better than I had ever expected. Her knowledge of Picasso and the city was precise and interesting. I felt that I was immersed in the culture and history of this region. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to learn about Picasso and Malaga to take a tour with Mercedes.
