Maike has a commanding knowledge of the history and culture of Andalucia and genuinely enjoys sharing it. It was a real joy to explore Granada with her -- from the city sites to her exceptional tour of the Alhambra and Generalife gardens. She was very flexible about accommodating changes to meet the individual needs of myself and my husband. Maike helped make it an unforgettable event for us! I recommend her to everyone! Both her Spanish and English are native speaker level - so talented!! Marcia G, USA
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marcia!

Maike may be German by birth, but the blood of Andalusia flows through her veins. We loved learning about this city from her. From the towering heights of the cathedral arches to the opulent tile work in Alhambra, seeing this city through Maike's eyes made Granada feel like home. At the end of the tour not only had we created wonderful memories of the city, but we had found a new friend.

Maike was amazing. Her indepth knowledge of Granada - the history, culture, people brought the city alive. She customized the tour to meet my needs and the weather. Her command of the English language is fantastic. Would definitely hire her again. I experienced Granada in a way I never would have without her. Do yourself a favor and hire her. You won't regret it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janet! And I really hope to see you again, there is so much more to see and to talk about!

Maike was terrific. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Granada, the Alhambra, and Andalusia. She speaks beautiful English and was a pleasure to spend time with. She was prompt, made efficient use of our time and allowed us to cover a tremendous amount of Granada in a condensed period of time. Would highly recommend Maike and this tour to anyone coming to Granada. The benefits of her buying your Alhambra tickets in advance and the fact that you get to bypass lines makes it worthwhile.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment, that is exactly what I wish to transmit: making the most of your day in Granada! Hope you recovered after the walk and can enjoy this evening with the views to the illuminated Alhambra! Salud and best regards to the whole family!

Impressive depth of historical knowledge: Check! Superbly fluent in English: Check! Thoroughly enjoyable: Check! On time, considerate and street-wise: Check! Maike was a fantastic guide for our day in Grenada. Our walk through the neighborhoods, and our tour of the Alhambra palaces and gardens comprised a full day, including her personal insights. You couldn't find a better guide. She was efficient and delightful, Should we come to Spain again, she would be our "go to" person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, Dorothy! I feel deeply honoured with your words, it was a real pleasure to meet you both! Of course, I expect you to come back! Here you have a friend! All the best! Hasta pronto!

My wife and I cannot say enough great things about Maike. Knowledgeable, friendly, energetic, she brought the Cathedral, Old City, Albecin, and Alhambra all to life for us. I appreciated both her command of history, art, architecture, and the enthusiasm with which she shared them. Also, she was very flexible, slowing down or moving along as our interests and energy dictated. Cannot recommend her highly enough!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much John! Happy to know that the day in Granada was wonderful for you and your wife! Hope to see you soon! Xxx

We took a six hour city tour which included three hours at the Alahambra with Maike. It was fascinating and instructive. She speaks good English and clearly knows her subject matter very well. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and appreciated her recommendations about Granada and other parts of Spain which we were visiting later.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Linda! Glad you found my recommendations useful!
Carol BanfordUnited States
Maike was the best guide we had in Spain. She was knowledgeable, articulate and informative. All 9 of us give her 5 stars! Our tour of the Alhambra and the old town was great. She was also a sociable and friendly person. We can't recommend her enough. She does the whole of Andalucia so book her for the whole area if you can. She gave us a full day and still took the time to make sure we found our way back to the hotel/apartment. I will certainly recommend her to anyone visiting the area. - Carol
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Carol, for your comment! I feel deeply honoured by your review... All the best for you and your friends!

Maike is THE guide that should introduce you to the beautiful city of Granada. She has years of experience as a senior guide. Her knowledge of history and interesting things is very extensive and you would totally have a great time being fascinated by things that one might not usually find out from a guide book. Maike was punctual and accommodating to our needs. She maximised our day in Granada and left us with such a memorable time. So fulfilling and well spent. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Beh! My best regards to the whole family!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matt! My pleasure to meet you and your family! Gracias!
