Mayte was our guide to the fabulous city of Toledo! She was very professional, prompt, and paced our day perfectly. We so appreciated that she purchased our train tickets and picked a place for lunch that had local specialties. Her narratives and talking points relating to the artworks that we saw really made our day complete!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words! I will remember you when ever I cross a "gentle pacer". ;)

Mayte is the perfect guide for four hours of immersion in the Prado and the Reina Sofia. She fuses two spectacular museums into a remarkable, memorable and thoroughly enriching experience. She selects just the right number of pieces, some very well known and others less so, for in-depth analysis. Mayte's impressive fund of technical knowledge and an excellent sense of the historical and cultural context left us with a feeling of great accomplishment and total satisfaction.

Our Second day with Mayte brought us to Segovia, again after Mayte met us at our hotel and helped us navigate the train systems. Loved Segovia and her knowledge of the entire city was incredible. She even knew me well enough to re-arrange her tour so that we saw the incredible aquaduct at the end of the tour, rather than at the beginning. Mayte also helped us find a great restaurant for lunch were we enjoyed a local treat of sucking pig. I know, but it was great. Can't thank her enough.

Mayte was a jewel. She knew her way around both Marid and Toledo like the native she is. We traveled by Metro and Train to Toledo and she showed us the history and wonders of that former capitol of Spain. Mayte met us at our hotel and took care of us like family and made our tour something we will never forget. Mayte also encouraged us to customize our tour, for example we wanted to not do the ABC (another bloody church) tour but she did encourge us to see the Cathedral and one other church, rightfully so

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a really great time with you. I hope to see you back soon

Outstanding tour with a great guide. Segovia is a truly wonderful city, full of life, beautiful architecture and Mayte was once again knowledgeable, and able to share that knowledge with us and bridged the language barrier. Her English skills, as a second language, were equal or better than ours as a first language. Would highly recommend the day tour with Mayte to Segovia!

Mayte was a fantastic tour guide for our family of 4 (2 teenagers and parents). We walked and talked through the streets of Madrid, learning the ancient and current history. Winding through the Retiro, Huertas and Sol barrios we ended up spending time in the Royal Palace and ending up at Plaza Oriente. her knowledge of the city and the Palace (and everything) was perfect for us as we decided to the Prado and El Reina Sofia ourselves.

She made the booking process extremely easy and her communication was excellent. She pre-purchased our train tickets and even met us at the apartment we were staying at in Puerto Del Sol. The day was extremely well organized and Mayte was incredibly knowlegdeable about Spanish history as well as the city of Toledo. We could not be happier with our day

Mayte had ZERO flexibility regarding timing/scheduling and didn't mesh well with our families and children. She is knowledgeable and was on time, but it wasn't a fun tour and wasn't personalized for us. We've had better guides in Spain and other countries using ToursByLocals and wouldn't recommend Mayte.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andy, Please accept my sincere apologies for the unforeseen issue with the fountains that were under maintenance as it was not informed to me.

Mayte was amazing! We love her wealth of knowledge on everything. She gave us tips on where to eat, where to go, etc... We particularly enjoyed her very detailed descriptions/reviews on the art work. She is very accommodating, it was raining and she was very patient with us. Also, you couldn't tell that this is what she does everyday, she wasn't bored and was happy to walk us everywhere and sit down when the kids were tired. She took us to a café and guided us to a paella place when our time was over.

She led us on an extraordinarily informative and exciting tour of this historic city. The education we received was as good as any walking tour with a professor. We arrived back in Madrid a bit wet but much better off for having had our tour of Toledo with Mayte.

Mayte is brilliant! My two kids and I met up in Madrid to celebrate my 70th birthday. At the outset Mayte gave us her Old Town 4 hr walking tour. It was superb. She explained so much about the city - its history, architecture, religions, culture and, very important, what to see/do and where to eat/shop. We enjoyed everything; the Royal Palace, a superb flamenco show, the Sunday flea market, the Prado and the park beyond, great places for tapas, wine, hot chocolate and more. Often in rain, wind & snow!

From the train tickets to the itinerary Mayte organized it all. After a taxi ride to a viewpoint overlooking the city, we walked the entire town of Toledo.

Mayte was an outstanding tour guide for our trip to Toledo. Even before the trip she suggested our group of 10 rent a mini bus, which cost about the same as taking the train, but allowing us much more flexibility. In the city, her knowledge and explanations were outstanding. This was my third trip to Toledo, and there were so many things we saw that were missed in the past, thanks to her knowledge of the city, and historical explanations. She also tailored the tour to meet in the interest of the group.

Mayte was a wonderful tour guide. She had a good knowledge of the various art styles and artists we saw. She was also very good at keeping it moving and us away from the large groups in the Prado. Her command of English was also very high. We had a great tour and would highly recommend her.

As someone who is born and raised in Madrid, Mayte definitely has the passion to explain this wonderful city, both from a historical as well as an informal view. She is very flexible and will listen to your needs before deciding where to take you, she right on time for picking me up at my hotel and very easy to get in touch with. If you are looking for a serious cultural tour tailored right to your needs, Mayte is the guide for you.

Toledo is not to be missed if you are in Madrid... We had a great experience taking the high speed train, then walking the walled city with Mayte. There is so much history here and so much to see. The cathedral is astonishing and especially the art inside (El Grecco) which Mayte explained to us in detail. Mayte is so well versed in art, history and architecture, a real feat when you consider how many different civilizations have ruled over Spain.

Great tour of the City, especially as Madrid is rather large it is important to do a driving tour to get a real sense of the city. Mayte was very very knowledgable on all aspects of Spanish and Madrid History. Our experience included not only historic buildings, but current architecture of modern Madrid. We just loved the whole experience!

We had an all day Madrid tour with Mayte and loved it. It felt very comfortable walking around with Mayte as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about her city answering our multiple questions on history and other aspects of life in the country. Mayte was flexible with the itinerary. Prado museum was the highlight of the day and our 12 year old loved it too! Mayte also organised some other things for us which would be problematic to do without her help- thank you!

Mayte was fantastic and our afternoon was everything we had hoped it would be. We learned so much-she is very knowledgeable (intimately knows Madrid) and she gave us insights we wouldn't have otherwise gathered. She has a very warm and enthusiastic personality. We also enjoyed picking her brain for recommendations on shopping, bars and restaurants. We recommend her without hesitation!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm really flattered by your comment. I had a fantastic afternoon with you.

I first had the pleasure of meeting Mayte when my daughter and I visited Madrid several years ago. She was the first guide we met and gave us a wonderful walking tour to acquaint ourselves with the highlights of Madrid and its rich history. When I knew I was returning to Madrid, I booked another tour with her, to Segovia and to Escorial. She is very knowledgable and personable and made my day very special and memorable. I would highly recommend her for any tour, but I particularly enjoyed this day trip.

This was our second tour with our guide Mayte, so I guess we really liked her. Again, her enthusiasm for the area and knowledge was so evident. I would definitely recommend Mayte as a guide for Madrid and environs. As mentioned before, we would prefer that the cost of train, entrance fees and lunch (also for guide) be included in the price quoted. Expect yo spend another $100-150 per couple.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your nice comment!

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We do acknowledge that for added convenience, it would be desirable to include the entry fees into the tour cost. We leave this to the guide discretion though we do ask that these details be transparent on the tour page. The guide has ensured to make this very clear on the tour description that there will be additional costs at a total of 100-150 EURO pp. We appreciate the feedback and it will be considered moving forward.

A good day spent with a delightful knowledgeable guide, Mayte. Well paced and took in all the major sights. I would like to see more costs included in the price as train fare (for all of us, guide included), entrance fees and lunch for the guide were extra. This added up to @ an additional $150 for 2 tourists and our guide.

I highly recommend a tour of Toledo with Mayte as the guide. Going by train to and from Madrid was easy with Mayte explaining how the system worked. The history of Toledo is varied and comes alive with Mayte knowledge and way of explaining the social and political interactions concerning each time period. The Cathedral is exceptional. We loved the tour.

Mayte not only give a wonderful tour of Madrid but made many suggestions and tips about getting around and what to see during our stay in Madrid. She was also our tour guide for a Toledo tour.

My family scheduled the tour of Toledo with Mayte, and could not have been happier with the experience. Mayte brought the town to life, As we toured Toledo, Mayte shared its two thousand year history with us. The depth of her knowledge and ability to engage us in what we were seeing was truly remarkable. I can't imagine what the experience would have been like otherwise. When we had to cancel a tour of Madrid the next day due to our son's illness, Mayte couldn't have been more gracious and understanding.

My walking tour with Mayte of old Madrid and the Prado and Reina Sophia museums was excellent. She was well versed in the history of Madrid and in Spanish art history, all of which made for a wonderful day. She was enthusiastic and very pleasant throughout, and very helpful with suggestions for what I could do on my own the following days that I was in Madrid. It was money well spent and I highly recommend Mayte as a tour guide.

We secured a walking tour prior to our arrival with Mayte for 2 people (could've been up to 10 people for same price) on the day we arrived in Madrid from the US. She met us at our hotel at our specified time. We took a taxi to the city center, and then she walked us through the highlights of the city, along with what I felt were some little gems; Raton Perez story, the story of the tradition of the fans in Spain... It was worth it for us. Mayte was most professional and experienced.
