Maike was top shelf! An excellent guide and wonderful companion! She was highly informative and filled the time to and from Granada with interesting and entertaining commentary. The tour of the Alhambra was fascinating. Being six seniors, we also appreciated that Maike conducted the tour with efficiency but at a pace that was pleasant and comfortable for us. She used excellent audio aids throughout the tour that made it easy to hear clearly. A real plus! And our lunch together was amazing. Thanks, Maike!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you George, for your kind review! My pleasure to accompany such nice travelers and to share wonderful moments in the Alhambra and Generalife!

Maike and her driver were waiting for us as we disembarked and provided a very smooth ride to The Alhambra. She is very fluent in English and cheerfully shared her vast knowledge of Spanish history, plant-life, and art. She made sure we all kept hydrated and knew when our party of 5 adults just needed to quietly take in the beautiful countryside on the way back--the lovely groves of olives, almonds, pomegranates, and mangoes. We will never forget it. Thank you, Maike and Antonio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barbara for your kind words and review! It was a pleasure to meet you and your friends, Andalusia is awaiting you for the next visit! All the best!

Maike is one of the best guides we've ever had, and we travel all over the World and have for more than 40 years. Her knowledge, personality and hospitality are unsurpassed. If you can have her as your guide, you're very lucky.

Maike gets a 5 star rating for depth of knowledge and pleasing manner beyond our expectations. We are one couple who traveled with Maike to the Alhambra with a couple of side stops along the way. Her historical knowledge is diverse and her personality fit well with the American couple from NYC

Maike's English was excellent. She and the driver met us at the exit from the ship, as arranged. We had a person in our group who had to get entrance to the Nasrid palaces a half hour later than the rest of our group due to lack of availability. She accommodated this situation efficiently and got us all back together again once inside. Excellent tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda, for your kind review! Best regards!

Maike is truly exceptional and she has shown tremendous knowledge of all the historical sites that we have visited. She is truly knowledgeable and it has been a real privilege that we have shared 2 wonderful days in her company. I cannot laud her enough as you encounter such a person once in a lifetime. My family and myself wish her well and our best wishes will always accompany her.

Wonderful tour-our group of six had an amazing day! Maike is extremely knowledgeable & personable and creates a whole package (tour + personality + fun) that simply made the day magical. Should we ever get back to Malaga again I would certainly have Maike be our guide! As for the Alhambra, it really was wonderful to see and having a guide brought it to life for us. Being on a personal tour allowed for tailoring the itinerary to our desires as well as time for a very nice lunch without feeling rushed

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dawn, for your review! Hope next time you will have the opportunity to see Malaga! All the best for you!

The tour given by Maike was fabulous. There cannot be any other person who knows as much or is as thorough and really excited about sharing information about this marvelous Alhambra palace. Her knowledge of the history and culture of the city and its people throughout the centuries was amazing and her attention to every detail of our species ce made us feel s those we were experiencing the Palace as a guest and not a tourist. Her skill made a mixup of ticket issue a non event - she is truly gifted

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It honors me that you felt like a guest in the Alhambra, thank you very much for this compliment, Joan!

Maike was fantastic! Although a bit expensive, the private tour of Alhambra and Granada she provided was worth every cent, leaving our family with a lifetime of memories. Maike customized the tour to our desires and used her expert insight to maximize our time. She is a wealth of knowledge regarding Spanish history, without which we would have lost out on the best parts of the sites we visited in the Alhambra and Granada. Our favorite part was her "tour" of the best Spanish foods Granada had to offer!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sean, for your comments and reviews! I am very very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay and that it might not be the last time you’ll be coming to Spain!

Maike was amazing. We booked four days with Maike, it was the way to go. She has a wealth of knowledge and did not rush us. We really enjoyed our time. It was a history lesson every day. Even the kids were engaged and learned a lot.

We had a great day with Maike from Malaga to Granada. We visited Alhambra and Granada city. And on the way back we made a stop in the beautiful village of Frigiliana. Maike told us all we wanted to know about history, the surroundings and of course a lot of details about Alhambra and Granada. She knew it all, and she knew how to tell it! A really great experience and a highlight in Our holiday!

Maike was a very good guide in Granada. She took 5 of us and it was a 9-10 hour day from our cruise ship. Maike told us that we walked about 10km so we were all tired. She was very knowledgable and had good English language skills.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ken for your nice comment! Definitely, visiting the Albayzin, the city centre and the Alhambra is a tough day! Granada has so much to see! Best regards to your family!

Maike exceeded our expectations and was very knowledgeable of the Granada and Malaga regions. She was on time, and took a genuine interest in making sure we were content. When the tour was over she took extra time to make sure we knew our way around the old town and showed us where to have dinner. It was our first time using Tours by Locals and she was a great ambassador for the service. We highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Eddie! It was my pleasure to know you both, and we could easily continue our conversations... next time! All the best y muchos abrazos!

We had the best day with Maike in Granada. She was so knowledgable and her passion for the subject was inspiring. She provided one of the best tours we have ever had. We were traveling with 4 teenagers and they were fully engaged because of Maike's enthusiasm. It was our best day in Spain. If you want an unforgettable day I recommend booking a day with Maike. She made all the logistics seamless and easy. Be prepared to walk knowing every step is worth it! Incredible!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful comment Mary! My privilege to know you and your family, to show you everything that fits in a day! Many thanks for the enthusiasm of your youngsters, and many thanks to you and your husband! Hope to meet you again! Abrazos a todos!

trouble purchasing the tickets on line, so she purchased the tickets for us and included it in the price of our tour. The tour was expensive but well worth it; Maike was very knowledgeable about the history; all of the sites. We toured the gardens and all of the palaces. She took us to the adjacent hill to be able to see the entire Fort and Palaces lit up at night; it was beautiful! Maike and her driver, David, use a Mercedes Mini Van that was very comfortable. She allowed time for some shopping and food

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cynthia for your kind comment! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family!! Gracias!
