We were a big group of 15. Maike arranged for a mini bus to take us to all the sites. The transportation she arranged for us was very comfortable. Maike was a great guide and was well versed with many of the sites we visited. She was with us for 4 days and got to know us quite well. She tailored the tour to what we liked to do which was eating besides sightseeing. She introduced us to Spanish cuisine that we totally enjoyed. Maike was a fantastic guide and she made our trip a success.

Our family enjoyed our private tour. We had a lovely time and saw so many sights. We were even able to see Africa from one of our views from the mountain top. We also enjoyed our lunch from one of the places she recommended. We even got to see Marbella on our tour (I had really wanted to go the day before but our plane was delayed and we missed a day in Malaga). She knew I was disappointed and made my wish come true. We highly recommend this fantastic, personable and very knowledgeable guide!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! It was an extraordinary view, in deed! So glad you and your family enjoyed the tour with me! Ronda and Marbella are just fabulous places. Hope to meet you again, dear Anna! Thanks also for the very interesting conversations we had! All the best to you!

Maike acted as a guide for our family from the afternoon till evening in a Malaga tour. In advance, our preferences were easily and swiftly translated into the elements of the tour. She is very pleasant in communicating (excellent English speaking, very good to understand), flexible (we had a case of sudden illness which required action), has excellent historical knowledge, showing us several places of interest and/or scenical. Our group (14 pax) was without exception very satisfied.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking your time for this kind review, dear Edmond! It was my pleasure to meet your lovely family here in Malaga during this very special day! Thanks again for choosing my service, and I hope to meet you again! All the best wishes for you and your family!

A magical day in southern Andalusia with Maike, who, aside from her considerable charm, has an encyclopedic knowledge of...well, just about everything. A ride through olive and avocado orchards brought us to the mountain stronghold of Ronda. We walked through this quietly spectacular ancient city, as Maike recounted tales of its long, rich history. Along the way she suggested stops at several places she thought we would particularly enjoy. Our day wa doubly blessed, with glorious sunshine and with Maike.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Peter, for your kind words! I am happy to know that you enjoyed this day with me, my pleasure to guide such lovely travelers! All the best and hope to see you soon again, here in Andalusia! Big hugs to you and your friends!

What a wonderful guide we were lucky enough to find - Maike! She was so knowledgeable, friendly, easy going and fun to spend the day with while learning about Ronda! Her detailed explanation of bull fighting was fascinating and allowed us to understand its importance to the Spanish people. Ronda was beautiful and well worth the day! We only wish we had more time to spend with Maike (should have used her for Alhambra also!) Thank you Maike for your scenic return to Malaga through the mountains!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind review, dear Robin! So happy to know you enjoyed the day, thanks for choosing my service and hope to meet you again! Un abrazo!

Maike was top shelf! An excellent guide and wonderful companion! She was highly informative and filled the time to and from Granada with interesting and entertaining commentary. The tour of the Alhambra was fascinating. Being six seniors, we also appreciated that Maike conducted the tour with efficiency but at a pace that was pleasant and comfortable for us. She used excellent audio aids throughout the tour that made it easy to hear clearly. A real plus! And our lunch together was amazing. Thanks, Maike!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you George, for your kind review! My pleasure to accompany such nice travelers and to share wonderful moments in the Alhambra and Generalife!

Maike and her driver were waiting for us as we disembarked and provided a very smooth ride to The Alhambra. She is very fluent in English and cheerfully shared her vast knowledge of Spanish history, plant-life, and art. She made sure we all kept hydrated and knew when our party of 5 adults just needed to quietly take in the beautiful countryside on the way back--the lovely groves of olives, almonds, pomegranates, and mangoes. We will never forget it. Thank you, Maike and Antonio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barbara for your kind words and review! It was a pleasure to meet you and your friends, Andalusia is awaiting you for the next visit! All the best!

Wonderful day tour with Maike, the monkeys were incredible. We had a clear day which made the day even better to see Africa. I toured with Maike last year and when I brought my niece this summer, I immediately booked her. She took us to a wonderful restaurant in Marbella on the beach for lunch.... delicious ! thank you for making this a wonderful memorable trip for Isabella. She still talks of you and wants you to try a root beer one day. When we return, we will bring one for you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much Joni! It was so lovely to meet you again and to know Isabella! Hope to see you soon again! Take care!!

I used Maike in September 2018 on a trip to Spain. Brought my niece this summer and immediately knew I was booking with Maike ! She will always be Isabella's favorite guide. She is accommodating, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her country. She made the tour wonderful for both of us. I've traveled extensively and Ronda if one of the most beautiful areas in Spain. So quaint and beautiful. Thank you for a wonderful time, my friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joni for this lovely review! So glad to know you enjoyed our day in Ronda! When travelers and guides meet and become friends it is certainly the best manner to enjoy a place, as we locals do! Hope there will be more chances for you to feel like at home here! Big hugs for you and Isabella, and Meghan! :))

I met Maike in September 2018 with my sister, and we had the best experience ! She was so accommodating to our needs and wants. She has so much knowledge of her city with much enthusiasm its addictive. I brought my 15 year old niece back and immediately booked with Maike for Malaga, Marbella and Gibraltar …. Amazing 2 days we spent with her. You were Isabella's favorite guide among many we used throughout our trip to Europe. She wants you to try Root Beer one day. I call Maike my friend ...

This tour was exceptional - and I don't impress easily! Maike had everything organized perfectly and made ideal use of every minute of this excursion. She knew exactly what we wanted to see and do and made it happen without any problems. We loved the tunnel tours, seeing the monkeys, the Skywalk, St. Michael's cave and our time to explore downtown. The border crossings between Spain and Britain were seamless. Both Maike and our British guides were extremely knowledgeable. A perfect day!

Maike was waiting for us as we came off our cruise ship.After introductions she asked if there was anything special we wished to see.We were happy for her to show us the highlights of the city.Wandering the streets she pointed out interesting architecture and told us about the buildings we were seeing. The market was very interesting and she talked about the produce. The highlight for us was the lovely cathedral and we spent quite a bit of time in there admiring paintings and the choir. A great tour.

Maike is an excellent tour guide. She has so much energy and an encyclopedia of information to share. The Day in Granada/Alhambra was amazing with so much to see and learn. Maike did a great job navigating a challenging logistical situation with our aging parents with buses and taxis at appropriate times to keep everyone happy. I would HIGHLY recommend Maike to conduct a tour for anywhere she offers them in Spain. Of the four tour guides we experienced while in Spain she was absolutely #1!!

Maike was an excellent tour guide. She has so much information to share. The Malaga walking tour was perfect to get the overview of the city and many of the special sites to see. We especially appreciated the individual speakers she provided at no extra cost so everyone could hear no matter how far they were away. It really helped our older parents to hear everything so clearly throughout the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend Maike to conduct a tour for anywhere she offers them in Spain. Outstanding!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dave! it was my pleasure to be the guide of such a lovely family of 3 generations!

Maike was an excellent guide for a group of 6 people in our walking tour of Malaga. We also toured the Picasso Museum with her and she brought it all to life describing the stages of his life and his paintings. She was very professional and easy to be with and understand. She truly loves her city and would be an excellent choice for anyone visiting Malaga.
