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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Caroline! Best regards

Maike was WONDERFUL! Her English is perfect, her knowledge of the Alhambra was amazing....she made the tour real, full of historical facts and made the tour come to life! My wife has a bad hip, and she adapted the tour to take that into consideration. She is pleasant, dedicated, and I can recommend her without ANY reservations! Thanks Maike, you made our day in Granada a pleasure!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan! it is easy to tour with such lovely travelers as you are! Also my pleasure to meet you! Un abrazo

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!

Ken ArleinUnited States
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!
Eddie BarrocasUnited States
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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Helen! Cheers and Happy Birthday!
Cynthia WarrickUnited States
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!
