Date: Mar 5/20

We had a great day with Ramon. He picked us up at our hotel in a comfortable van and took us to the villages of Zehara and Ronda. We saw SO much! Ramon shared just the right amount of info about the area, the culture and the history. We appreciated that he kept us active and engaged for the entire day - we loved the hike! We had lunch in Ronda under the bridge, but it was a cold day and we had to sit inside. Ramon does speak English, but if you speak a little Spanish, it makes things easier.

Tour: #517420, Day trip to Cordoba with optional tour in Medina Azahara, Carmona or Almodovar del Río, Sevilla, Andalucia, Spain    view tour
Date: Jan 19/20

I joined Ramón on a guided visit of Córdoba. The day went very smoothly and Ramón's good nature contributed to yet another lovely day in Andalusia. He ensured there was plenty of flexibility around the visit to allow for rests, food and drinks. He was very attentive in answering all my questions and tailored his information based on what I was looking to learn more about. After such a lovely visit I hope to return to the region, in which case I would definitely contact Ramón re. further guided tours!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gillian, Thank you for your kind review. I am glad you enjoyed the tours and I hope you and any friends or family will consider me again as a guide for any future visits to Andalusía! All the best, Manuel Ramón

After a successful 1st tour of Seville with Ramón, I joined him for a tour of Granada. I thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the history of the Alhambra. It is such a spectacular place. In addition to its history, Ramón shared his knowledge and enthusiasm for the local flora and fauna, which just makes you appreciate those wonderful views in Granada all the more. I would definitely recommend this trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gillian, Thank you for your kind review. I am glad you enjoyed the tours and I hope you and any friends or family will consider me again as a guide for any future visits to Andalusía! All the best, Manuel Ramón

I requested a personalised tour from Cádiz with Ramón and it did not disappoint! He is an excellent tour guide and his approachability and attentiveness instantly made me feel welcome to this beautiful part of Spain. He is very knowledgeable and keen to share his love for Andalusia which made it a really fun trip for me. I especially appreciated the additional stops made along the way to discover some hidden gems only locals know about! I would recommend Ramón, his van, and his tours 100%

Ramon needs to improve his English and use some sort of microphone. Being 7 people in the vehicle, those in back had difficulty. Also, although I requested going to Seville, I didn't realize how far it is from the ship.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologise that the tour didn't fully meet your expectations. I repaired the mic and speaker that had broken so I can be heard from the back of the van. Even though most of the tours I provide are in English, I understand that in certain situations it's not as clear as a native-speaker's. Regarding the travel time, it was mentioned in the tour details. Nevertheless I now also explicitly inform clients prior to confirming bookings. Of course I welcome all the feedback that can help improve my tours.

Fantastic day trip to Ronda for our family of four. Ramón was on time, very knowledgeable of the areas visited, a good driver, the van was comfortable, was great with our 13 and 15 year old sons, and made additional stops at various viewpoints including a castle, a family run olive oil business, and Zahara (which was a highlight)! Do not hesitate to take a tour with Ramón, we appreciated his command of the local areas and answering all of our questions, thank you for a great day Ramón!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for coming on the tour! I really enjoyed spending time with you and spreading my knowlodge of the area.

Ramón provided a good tour of Cordoba. We were very satisfied with the sites, but Ramón needs to improve his command of English.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jospeh, Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate that as a non-native speaker, my English can be at times difficult to understand. I do take this feedback on board as I thrive to provide my clients with the best possible experience. I am continuing to work very hard on this aspect of my tours and I hope you will join me again in the future for a tour in Andalusía and be able to witness an improved command of English.

We highly recommend Manuel's tour to Rhona. He is extremely knowledgeable on many subjects from history and culture to ecology, geology and the natural world which makes him a great companion on a road trip. Manuel has a very pleasant, relaxed personality and a good sense of humour, and my kids really liked him. We stopped off at a wonderful traditional olive oil factory, the white villages, Rhonda town, the bullring and had a delicious lunch afterward. It could not have been a better day out!

The van is comfortable for 6 adults, Ramon and driver. The sunflowers were in full bloom and we were able to view them up close and climb nearby remnants of a medieval castle. We stopped at a viewpoint and Zahara de la Sierra. These were unexpected stops for us and made the day very enjoyable. We appreciate the extra time that he spent with us. He is a very good guide-if you speak Spanish (unfortunately none of us do) I am certain that you will gain much more than we did of his knowledge about the area

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback concerning the Ronda day trip, Dianna. I welcome all feedback that can help me further improve my tours and provide the best experience for my clients. I have a good level of English, and most of the tours I provide are in English. However in certain situations my English is not as clear as a native-speaker's. The speaker was without battery which may have also impeded the clarity of my explanations.

We have been traveling extensively for many years and mostly use ToursByLocals, Manuel has been one of the most personable, knowledgeable and wonderful guide we have ever had. We are planing to go back in October and use him again. He will tailor your tour to your likes and needs without hesitation. Cannot praise him enough. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I informed the group what they will like to have for food before go to Granada and also I have informed then to call a taxi of they considered that is so much the way from the Alhambra to the restaurant. And it is not true that I didn't have any quick compensation from the restsurant. I choose the places to eat according their quality, not if they have any comission. Regards,

Tour: #412312, Walking excursion in the amazing Caminito del Rey, Seville, Spain    view tour

This is a most beautiful natural site. I'm so glad we didn't miss it. If you love nature, this hike is a must. The approach to the canyon trail was more difficult than the trail. Considering that I'm almost 80, if I can make it, anyone can!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy that you were satisfied. Actually, the option of restaurant in the exit of Caminito del Rey is very limited and the alternative is even more expensive. Regards Judith,

A great way to walk the Caminito del Rey at short notice. Ramon Manuel picked us up from our hotel, drove us in his comfortable van, organized entry tickets and walked with us, giving us lots of interesting information both on the walk and during the drive. He even gave us tips for dinner and later sent us footage he took on His GoPro!

This was our first disappointing tour from "tours by locals". Manuel showed up 1 1/2 hr late after changing the meeting place. He was not proactive like all our other guides in providing an exact spot to meet him and no sign or what he would be wearing. My phone was not working correctly so calls were out and texting spotty. It was a terrible beginning. His English was very hard for us to understand. He spent an excessive amount of time checking his phone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize that you had such a disappointing experience at the start of my tour. As I told you an incident happened in the harbour. I'll try to foresee this problem to avoid this issue again. I am sorry if it seems I was on my phone too much during the tour, I was using it to make sure that our tour was running smoothly after starting late. I'll make sure that I do this better in the future as well as checking that I am being understood properly. I hope that I have an opportunity to see you again

It was our first time visiting Spain, and we could not have asked for a better guide than Ramon. Even though we booked a 12 hour tour he spent the extra time with us and gave us a 15 hour tour. He was very informative and knowledgeable about all sites, making sure we understood all the history. His car was also very comfortable, and overall he was very friendly and very cooperative. We loved every second of our tour with Ramon and are glad he was our guide for our first visit to Granada and Ronda!

Ramon was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of in depth information. We were impressed with his knowledge of history and also of current events. He took his time and probably exceeded the time that was expected. We did, however, have a few hiccups with the schedule, originally set up for a national holiday, and then switched to the following day with uneven communication. Also, given the high cost of the tour, we were surprised to have been charged extra 40E for fees--seemed excessive all told.

What a great tour !! Ronda is so magical and our tour guide Manuel Ramon made it extra special. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very dynamic. He gives you options for the tour which makes it very personable. He made reservations in a great restaurant with breathtaking views of Ronda. We also visited a Zahara de la Sierra which is beautiful town where we visited a family owned Olive oil factory. In summary, it was a great experience which I recommend highly. Manuel Ramon is the best!
