Michael MulbargerThousand Oaks, CALIFORNIA, United States
We are two English speaking Expats, closer to 80 than 70, experienced world wide holiday travelers. We judge Mariluz Gutiérrez to be a perfect five star guide. Why? Think … caring, considerate, enthusiastic, experienced, flexible, friendly, insightful, knowledgeable, open, punctual, responsive, well-spoken, etc. We met as strangers at our hotel and, after a too brief seven hours, seemingly parted as friends. We enjoyed and were enriched by our experience with Mariluz. Nobody could be better.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, I am flattered by your review. I really appreciate it. Thank you very much. It was a very enriching experience for me too. I wish you all the best. Mariluz

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 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 wonderful and extremely accommadating. One of our group members was trying to find the meeting place and she came to them and also extended our tour. She was very easy to work withon scheduling our tour and was flexible on personalizing it. She is extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her.

Susan SlavinUnited States
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
Susan RossUnited States
Mariluz was well prepared and gave a wonderful tour. We asked her to cut the tour short to accommodate a later tour, and she agreeably modified our tour to suit our schedule. We "lost" one of our crowd (not her fault at all) and she was very concerned and called later to apologize (again, not her fault) and make sure he arrived home safely. Very happy with this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Susan. You were so kind!. It was a pleasure really. I wish you all the best. Mariluz
Ella I.United States
Mariluz was a great tour guide for my 13 year old son, my husband and myself. She took us on a private tour of the Royal Palace before it opened to the public which was very cool. We asked her to give us an interesting history lesson and she totally delivered. We learned a lot! She was great with my son. She also took us on a tour of the Prado museum where we just hit the most important highlights. She provided very interesting background on the artists. Enjoyable and educational! Highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ella, Thank you very much for your great review! It was really a pleasure to work with a so nice family! All the best Mariluz
Irene RicciUnited States
Very knowledable and nice. Spoke Spanish slowly so that my 19 yr old niece and 14 yr old daughter could follow and understand. Very good English as well. Accommodated our requests. Would definitely hire her again and highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy that you enjoy the tour ! Thank you very much for your nice revew. It was really a pleasure to work for you! All the best. Mariluz
Martha GriffinUnited States
Mariluz was incredible. She customized a tour of the royal palace and wine tasting for us. This experience was only one that could be shown by a true local. She took us to a wine bar that had a 500 year old "cave," that was used as a massive wine cellar. Truly remarkable and the highlight of my trip to Spain.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martha, i am so happy that you enjoyed this "local exoerience"! Thank you very much and have a nice flight
Alka FarmerUnited States
I learned over the time that no visit to historic cities are complete without a guide. The buildings have no meaning if you don't know the history. Mariluz was our guide for a day, and she was wonderful. Very informative, engaging and pleasant. My kids loved her as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alka, for your nice review!. All the best, Mariluz
Albert WeissbergYonkers, NY, United States
We really enjoyed our tour with Mariluz. She met us at our hotel and we started our tour. The tour of the Royal Place and the Prado was excellent. Mariluz gave us an excellent insight and understanding of the different paintings at the Prado. She was very pleasant and kept the pace of the tour to our level. Thank you Mariluz
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Albert. I hope that your holidays in Spain would remain in your heart... All the best
Mariluz is a fantastic guide. She speaks good English and more important, she has a clear and loud voice. She is fun as well and talks a lot, so you get to know a lot about Madrid.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Timo! I hope that you will come back soon to Madrid. Enjoy the rest of your holidays!! Great regards Mariluz
