Mariluz did a fantastic job for tours that we booked on consecutive days. Her knowledge of local history, combined with her ability to maintain our daughters' interest (after an overnight flight) was superb. We enjoyed every aspect of both tours and highly recommend Mariluz to anyone seeking a tour of Madrid and its many splendors.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rob, I would like to thank you for taking your time and write such a great review! I really think that reviews can help other travelers to choose the guides fitting best their interests. It was a great pleasure to be with you these 2 days. You have a wonderful family!

Date: Oct 28/19

We had a wonderful tour in Madrid with Mariluz. It started off with a mix up on time and date but Mariluz corrected the problem quickly and we were off to see the Royal Palace. She was an expert at maneuvering us around the crowds and pointing out art and details that we would never have seen or known on our own. Then we walked through the old town and enjoyed a lovely refreshment at a historical bar. We really enjoyed our tour and I would recommend her to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you really very much for taking your time and review, Jane. Believe me, it was my pleasure to be with such a nice party as you , ready to enjoy every moment. And happy to have a nice picture with you all !! All the best Mariluz

We met at the Royal Palace that was closed to a unannounced fire drill until 11. Mariluz adjusted the tour where we started at the cathedral than old town before ending at the palace. It was a all walking tour that covered 4 + miles. We greatly enjoyed the historical and present day discussions throughout the 4 hour tour. We recommend the tour from Mariluz.

Mariluz is an amazing guide! She's very warm and friendly, very patient with my 2 young kids, as it was not easy walking around in 30+ degree summer heat with kids. She explained everything very well and clear, and made sure that we enjoyed our tour and that we understood her explanation. She even pointed out the nice but not too expensive places to eat. She bonded very well with my 6 years old daughter, and continuously held her hand throughout the tour. Highly recommended. Thanks Mariluz!

Mariluz was absolutely delightful. We had just landed 3 hours in Madrid from the US, before starting our tour and she was right on top of her game to keep us all interested and alert. Our ages ranges from 18, a beginner to international travel to 75 a seasoned veteran of international travel and tours of museums. Her knowledge of the Prado and the notable artists was great and she gave all of us a different view of just the paintings, but special insights as well. We all enjoyed the tour, with Muriluz

Mariluz was an excellent friendly and informative guide. Particularly at the Valley of the Fallen her insights into the emotions and attitudes of the Spanish people towards this monument really helped to put it into proper perspective. Escorial is definitely for the more mobile visitor (a lot of stairs) but well worth the effort.

We took visual memories (no pictures allowed) throughout & teens enjoyed the armory. Afterward we visited Plaza de la Villa & Plaza Mayor before finishing our late day tour at Puerta del Sol. Mariluz lunch recommendation was spot on as we returned to our hotel. An enjoyable overview of Madrid

This was a fantastic tour to a great city in Spain. Mariluz was spot on time to pick us up and was a very professional, friendly, informational and all around great guide for our tour to Segovia. She had pre-booked lunch at a local for the 10 of us as we visited Segovia on Good Friday and she knew we would have problems finding somewhere to accommodate all of us for a meal. She knew where to stop on the bus to get the best photos and was responsive to all our needs during the day. Perfect tour!

Once in the Prado Museum she pointed out details in paintings as well as showing how various painters influenced other painters. We didn't just experience the museum but she seemed to bring the paintings to life. Great tour and gladly recommend Mariluz and Tours by Locals.

We enjoyed our guide and our tour, but a few words of caution: the Royal Palace involves a lot of standing around. I'm an active runner, but even I found it a bit hard on the back. Plus, just the nature of the place doesn't keep the attention of teens for very long. That's not bc of the guide - not at all - but it left us wondering if we would have been better served doing quicker walk through of the palace on our own and spent more time with our lovely guide elsewhere.

This was an excellent tour of the Thyssen. Mariluz was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. My husband described it as an Art History course condensed into an afternoon. I felt like he had a new appreciation of art, not being someone with much exposure to it. Our friends (we were a party of four) enjoyed the tour just as much and they are quite well-versed in art.

Mariluz was absolutely fantastic. She made it enjoyable and educational for us adults as well as our 10 year old daughter. She was fun, engaging and very knowledgable on history and the culture. It was such a pleasure and we learned so much. Would recommend highly !! Barb

We visited the Thyssen and Reina Sofia with Mariluz as we had been to the Prado earlier in the week. She was happy to change the advertised tour to accommodate our requirements. The visits to the galleries were comprehensive and informative. Mariluz is a very well informed and amiable guide. Good value for money and highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bryan, thank you very much for your nice review! Bes regards, Mariluz

We found this tour and our guide Mariluz both excellent. We have used tour by local before and found this tour as excellent as we expected. Mariluz is both qualified and personable on the tour. It is so much more efficient to tour in this manner. All the activities were coordinated very well as well as the car and driver. She took care of everything, so we could enjoy the sites and personal narrations she provided. I would heartily recommend this tour. Daryl and Ellen Koops, Los Angeles, USA

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daryl, I am happy that you really enjoyed this customized tour I created for you. And it was my pleasure to work for you. Thank you very much for your review! All the best , Mariluz

Mariluz was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. She does what a good tour guide does. She guides you thru the collections in the most efficient manner, hitting all the major pieces, the secondary supporting pieces and explains the relationship between the artist, the work and the world that they inhabited and how the artist grew and changed over time. We were taken on a journey thru the artistic lives of the Spanish masters, the patrons who supported them and the life of the paintings. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeff, I am so happy to read your wonderful review! Thak makes me really happy. All the best for you and Pam! Mariluz

Mariluz took my husband and me on a tour of the Prado and Retiro Park. We loved the Prado and Mariluz taught us so much about art. We would never have understood the beautiful artwork without her and saw things in the pieces we would not have seen on our own. It was great to pair that with being outside in beautiful Retiro Park. We had friends join us in the park with their young son and Mariluz didn't miss a beat. Mariluz even recommended great restaurants for us to visit on our own. We had a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Susan, believe me that it was a pleasure. To be flexible to my customers' likes and private conditions is one of my first duties. On the other hand, I love children!. Best regards and thank you again for having chosen Madrid as part of your holidays! Mariluz

My family and I had a great tour with Mariluz. She took us on a walking tour of Madrid and a highlights tour of the Reina Sofia. Communicating with Mariluz before our trip was incredibly easy and we were confident the tours we booked were exactly what we wanted. The walking tour was a great way to learn about the city and it's history. Mariluz tailored the museum tour to the highlights - it was perfect. Mariluz was knowledgeable, friendly and fun to spend the day afternoon with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Susan for your great review! I am always so happy when I see that my customers are wiling to come back to Madrid...this is great satisfaction for me. It was very easy to work with you, and a real pleasure. All the best. Mariluz
