I worked with Adriane to come up with the perfect custom private tour for Carnival, and she really delivered! Truely, she went above and beyond to make an event that is not totally culturally transparent into something we whole heartly felt we were part of. She is whip smart, energetic, and passionate about you and the success of your tour. If you are in region around Cadiz, do not hesitate, book Adriane. My wife and I have done private tours sound the world, Adriane is one of the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the your overwhelming support I had a delightful time as well. I hope to be able to give this tour again next year. Thank you again Adriane. P.S. Did you make it to Vejer?

Adrianne's smile as we met was delightful. Her love of Cadiz came through instantly as she shared a quick history from the Phoenicians to present day. Then we were off to see many of the city's towers, churches, market and the Roman theater. At each location, Adrianne offered insights and stories about the age, purpose and in some cases the discovery of a site. She answered all our questions about the weather, culture, healthcare, education and more. This three-hour walking tour was a delight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review. I really enjoyed myself as well, you and your sister were a delight to tour around the city with. I hope you guys are able to come back soon. Enjoy the rest of your travels!

Adrianne provided a professional and well thought out tour of Cadiz with great in depth local knowledge. She made us feel relaxed and accommodated our requests seamlessly. Took total care of us and filled the tour time perfectly. Super day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. I had a lovely time touring around the city with both you and your brother. Hope you are able to make it back to our little corner of the world one day!
Carol MastronardoUnited States
Adriane does an amazing job. Even with our late ship arrival, she made it all work. Can't wait to head back to Cadiz and will book Adriane again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the lovely comment. Were you guys able to try some sea urchins? Let me know when you guys head back this way and we can plan another adventure. Enjoy your holiday!!
The mix of culture and food made this tour special for us. Adriane was a very energetic guide and we were able to cover a lot on foot during the tour, old Roman ampatheater, beach views, a very interesting approach to use of an old Gothic church plus several stops for refreshment in the market and elsewhere. it was Monday so the market was a lot less busy than normal but it was possible to get a sense of it from one of the restaurants which was open. Recommend to anyone looking for an overview of Cadiz.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely comments. I very much enjoyed showing you guys around the city. I hope you will be able to make it back this way to our little corner of the world. Happy new year!!!!

The girls are both knowledgeable and so fun. We enjoyed our tour with them very much. The tapa were great and the local knowledge was exactly what we were looking for. If you are coming to Cadiz and are tired of tours with 100 people going only to tourist spots, then you should book this tour immediately. We have done tours all over Europe and North America and I can say without hesitation that this is one of the best we have had. Thank you ladies!!!!! Kris and Katherine Z
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kris and Katherine, Thank you for such a lovely reference we are overjoyed to hear you guys enjoyed yourselves. Feedback like yours is what makes this such an awesome 'job'. Thanks again for a fun afternoon and we really hope to see you guys one day soon! Hugs!!
Rebecca NallUnited States
Adriane was amazing! She was so friendly and professional, answering emails, meeting us promptly, and planning an energetic fun day. Her knowledge was fantastic and her stories were filled with humor making the time fly by. I would highly recommend her, and look forward to visiting Cadiz soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure spending the day with you and your husband. It is easy to share time with such a FUN couple. Thank you, hope to see you soon.
Carol LoveladyUnion, KY, United States
A great 3 hours with Adriane and her food choices were excellent. She is knowledgable and interesting and we learned a lot about the city, her country and its culture. Great job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! We had such a lovely time with you guys as well. Hope you had a lovely cruise home and we hope to see you guys again!! Hugs
This was our second tour with Adriane it was wonderful. Her selection of the bodegas which we visited, Bodegas Tradicion and González Byass, could not be faulted they were a contrast of new and old. Adriane facilitated our introduction to each of the bodegas and placed us in the hands of guides whose knowledge of the sherry we were tasting and the history of the bodegas was exemplary. At the conclusion of each of our tours Adriane was waiting for us with our transportation the whole tour was seamless.
Francine DiTringoUnited States
My four friends and I had a great experience with Adriane on our shore excursion in Cadiz. During our walking tour, she shared her knowledge of history while showing us the sites of Spain's oldest city. We also had a gastronomic experience with the 3 locations for Tapas. Lots of with this enthusiast guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the comment. I had a very good time with you 5 ladies. I hope the rest of your cruise goes well and you have a good trip home. Big hugs!!
Our Cadiz Tapa & Cultural tour with Adriane can be summed up in the statement made to me by my husband at the conclusion of our tour - "best tour ever"! Adriane is a font of knowledge about Cadiz you cannot help but be infused with her enthusiasm for the city as she shows you around. The tapa was wonderful and Adriane was sensitive and alert to my dietary restrictions (coeliac's disease).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You guys were absolutely delightful thank you so much, and I hope to see you both one day soon. Enjoy the rest of your holiday! Adriane
Matthew McBrideUnited States
Great Tour, tapas was included, Adriane was knowledgeable and showed my family some ancient sites we never would have found. As a history major I was impressed with her insights. Good value, great ice cream at the end!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey guys! So glad you enjoyed yourself! I had a delightful time. Hope to see you guys soon. Stay warm in Germany, Hugs!
Lauri PortzUnited States
We had a very good time in Cadiz. The tapas were good, the city is interesting and our guide was fun. A great way to spend our afternoon in Cadiz.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I enjoyed myself as well. Hope the rest of your trip went well. All the best Adriane
Thomas LaiUnited States
Adrianne and Maca gave us a wonderful tour that showed us the hidden gems of Cadiz. They complemented each other excellently. Our kids especially loved seeing the market with all of the interesting fish and other foods. A great brief tour of the city that left us plenty of time to explore further on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy you guys enjoyed yourselves. We had a lovely time touring around with you and your family. Your kids are so cute! Hope you had a lovely rest of your holiday! Best wishes, Adriane and Maca
Renee CharnasUnited States
Loved our tour. Adriane was wonderful. We booked a private tour and had three children with us and the pace of the tour was perfect. Fun, relaxing, and educational.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Hope you had a wonderful rest of your holiday��!
Michael HughesUnited States
Just finished our walking tour with Andriane (She is from Idaho so her English is excellent, but has spent most of her life in this part of Spain) and her friend Macarena (Who is a native of Cadiz). In two hours we covered a good part of the original town. They clearly love their town and enjoy showing it off to others. They made the visit fun and informative. I highly recommend them.
Marcie SmilieUnited States
Adriane and Maca gave a great tour to our group of 10 Americans. They were knowledgeable and interesting. They walked at a pace that was comfortable for our group. Both the city and our guides exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend them!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marcie, We had such a great time with you and your group! Thank you again for organizing everyone for us. Please let us know if you are back in the area, we would love to show you the other towns of Cadiz and what they have to offer. Have a great trip!! Adriane and Maca
Eileen AustinUnited States
We had a great time with Adriane! Would highly recommend her as a tour guide for anyone who is a first time visitor to Cadiz!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eileen, we had a great time as well! Thank you for being so lovely, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday!
Andrea HeckelUnited States
Adriane was an amazing tour guide who showed us the beauty and complex history of Cadiz! I highly recommend her for future tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andrea! I am so glad you and your family enjoyed both the Tour and Cadiz. I hope the Phoenician museum 'Gadir' was to your liking as well. It was lovely meeting you all. Happy Safe Travels!
Bruna BresnanUnited States
I have nothing but kudos for the two guides. They made us feel welcome and were eager to make our visit to this area an interesting one. Since the weather was cold and rainy a visit to the Cadiz museum was chosen. Anyone interested in art and history will be pleased. I want to stress that this is a great excursion for anyone with a walking issue, as a wheelchair can be provided.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Bruna! It was so wonderful meeting you and your husband, we had such a lovely time with the two of you. We really do hope you are able to come back to Cadiz soon so we can show you more of our little corner of the world. The two of you were so sweet and accommodating especially since the weather was not behaving as it should. I hope the rest of your travels go smoothly and your flight home is quick. Many hugs from both I and Maca
Tour was great! Many interesting information and stories about the city. The guides also did very well in integrating our 2 boys (8&5yo). But why only 4 stars? I booked it 3mo in advance, and it could have been obvious, that at the time of the tour Carnival was taking place in Cadiz. This led to some problems, because many tapas bars and the cathedral were closed in the late morning, when the tour was scheduled. But our guides were very creative and managed to compensate this problem with a big effort.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Peter-Florian, Thank you for your comments we appreciate your opinion and will take your remarks under consideration for next years carnival. We had a very good time and we hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. Adriane and Maca
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! Hope to see back in Cadiz soon. Have a safe trip home! Adriane and Maca
Bernita StadlerUnited States
Adriane is an American born & schooled in Cadiz so she is fluent in Spanish. She and the other guide were so friendly and accommodating. They were knowledgable without being boring and took us to some great places while telling us about the city. We had great Tapas and drinks at local places we never would have seen had we gone on our own. We even bought the canned marinated mussels to bring home. Cadiz is a great walking town & I would definitely recommend this Tapas tour to anyone going there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, we had a lovely time as well!!! Yes the mussels are a must, glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for your review hope you had a delightful time on your cruise! Have a great November! Adriane and Maca
Andrea P.United States
I had a delightful tour of beautiful Cadiz with Adriane and Maca. They are both young, multilignual, and very energetic and enthusiastic ladies who definitely know all about Cadiz and the best way to see it on foot. They are very patient, and enjoy answering questions. I saw everything I wanted to on my custom private tour, and really enjoyed every minute of it. I appreciate their taking my photos when asked, as well. Great experience in a truly beautiful and historic place.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We really enjoyed our time with you, especially hearing about all of your adventures at home. Thank you for the review, we really appreciate it!!! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise, have a great November. Adriane and Maca
We had a fantastic tour with Adriane & Maca! They are lovely, friendly, bubbly personalities & will keep you entertained & informed. They tailored the tour to our needs & even managed to get us an early (for Spain) dinner. The horse riding was a definite highlight of our holiday. Totally recommend Adriane & Maca :) Thanks again! Kylie, Tony & Glenys
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We had a very fun time as well. We totally appreciate your review. If you are ever back in our corner of the world please let us know!!!! Have a great November! Adriane and Maca
Marilyn MacLeanUnited States
Adrienne and her friend, Margo, took us on an entertaining and informative tour of Cadiz. Adrienne provided much colorful commentary. We stopped at two different bars for tapas, both very good, then finished up with gelato. A very fun way to explore the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review! We had a lovely time as well! That gelato was good wasn't it?! Hope you had a lovely trip and have a wonderful November! If you are back in our little corner of the world let us know. Adriane and Maca
Karen ThomasUnited States
Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. Adrianne speaks perfect English and beautiful Spanish -comfortably led us around the city, leaving us with directions to return to what we might visit on our own, including the best churros and gelato !! a perfect start to a day in the City of Cádiz!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I had such a wonderful time, thank you for making it such an enjoyable and fun experience. I am really happy your guys were able to go back and do the Torre Tavira. I hope you guys got the chance to try the churros and Naragoni ice-cream, its quite a tasty experience. Hope you guys make it back this way one day soon, enjoy the rest of the Disney cruise (I am a little jealous :)). Sending many hugs and smiles, Adriane
Sam LevineSarasota, FL, United States
Adriane and Naty were terrific. Knowledge, attitude, enthusiasm and fun were just a few of the traits they both brought to our tour. We have done tours in Madrid with ContextTravel, and private guides and this team was wonderful. They responded promptly to all of our email organization questions months in advance and confirmed our last minute confirmations both by email and Text. They met us at the train station exactly as planned. Because it was a private tour we get into serious discussions of
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Sam, Thank you for your kind words, we had a lovely time with you and Nancy. We loved how interested the two of you were in both the tour and in Spain and its society. It is always nice to find people who truly want to learn about other cultures . We hope you have a wonderful rest of your time in Spain and wish you all the best. Sending many smiles and hugs, Adriane and Naty
Bella WhelanUnited States
Adriane is a delightful person to spend time with. She's enthusiastic and fun. Since she was raised in Cadiz by American parents, she has no accents, and is very easy to understand. Cadiz would not have been an interesting stop without Adriane's company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bella, We had such a wonderful time. Thank you for making it a great experience! We hope that you will make it back to Cadiz someday soon. Hope the rest of your travels go well. Sending many smiles!!! Thank you, Adriane and Maca

Chris BallUnited Kingdom
I booked for 4 people and we all had a wonderful afternoon. Adriane's enthusiasm was infectious and she was fun and knowledgable. She even laughed convincingly at our silly banter. Particularly valuable were her tips about where to eat and we were grateful when her advice was proven by the fabulous eating experience we had at places we would never have found without her help. We all agreed that choosing a local guide added greatly to the holiday, just wish it could be Adriane every time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you enjoyed the tour and you found the restaurants to be to your liking. I believe we enjoyed the tour as much as you and your group did. It was such a lovely time and you guys were perfect travelers. Thank you again for making the tour so much fun!!! Next time we will do Cadiz!!! Hope to see you soon, Adriane
Naomi MulleyUnited Kingdom
Ariane is a charming and vivacious guide with English as a first language. The tour was interesting and well pitched for us (we are no historians). Perhaps we could have covered more of the city with a brisker pace and less time at the market which we could have revisited ourselves. However, it was fun to discover some other interesting places on our own and we loved Ariane's relaxed style!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, we will take your advise about the market into consideration. We really enjoyed ourselves as well and hope you and your group venture back to Cadiz again soon.
Charles P.United States
very enthusiastic and fun guides
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!!! We had a really good time as well!
Debra W.United States
Adriane and Maca are friendly, knowledgeable and fun! Learning about Cadiz while eating tapas and enjoying a beverage, how could it get any better. I would definitely contact them again when I'm in the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much!!!! We really enjoyed ourselves as well! We hope to see you soon for another cultural and gastronomical adventure!
Elizabeth KirwanUnited States
Adrian and Maca were very personable and took good care of us, thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment, we really had a wonderful time with you and your family. We hope to see you again one day! Enjoy!
Martha K.United States
Adriane led our small group on a delightful culinary walking tour of Cadiz that included a visit to the large open-air market in the old city, plus three tapas bars for samples of local specialties, all the while entertaining us with stories about the history and culture of the city. It was a thoroughly enjoyable excursion, thanks to her warm and outgoing personality!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Martha, we had a great time as well. Hopefully next time you come back this way we can plan something new and different.
Mary FogalUnited States
This tour was absolutely wonderful!!! Adriane and Maca were the perfect hosts! they provided great history about Cadiz but also incorporated tapas and beer and wine from their favorite local places. They were both very personable and lots of fun!! Highly recommend Tours by Locals in Cadiz!!!
