Maike speaks excellent English and is an excellent guide. I enjoyed the day of "slow tourism," going to places where there were few other tourists. I especially liked the dolmans, ancient tombs from 3000 B.C.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Harry, for taking your time to write the reviews, and for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed the day, despite the awful weather! All the best for you and Pat!

Date: Nov 20/18

Maike speaks excellent English and is an excellent tour guide. I give the tour itself and not Maike 4 instead of 5 stars. It seemed to me that there really wasn't all that much to see at Gibraltar. We went into a natural cave, but there are many larger and more impressive caves at different place in the US. We saw the monkeys and they were cute, but you don't have to go to Gibraltar to see monkeys. It was an OK day, but not worth 5 stars.

We went to Ronda Spain with Maike. Everything about this tour exceeded our expectations. She brought many things to life with incredible detail that gave us a true picture of the times, the culture, the history and the beauty of the region. We left carrying many pleasant memories that we will not forget. We are already planning our next trip and will definitely use Maike again.

Our visit to Ronda was perfect. There were six of us and Maike was a wonderful, thoughtful guide. Very knowledgeable about the Town as well as the drive to and from Ronda. The van dropped us the opposite end of the old town from where the big tour buses were so we had a quiet walk for about an hour before we encountered many other tourists. Maike used headsets so we could easily hear her comments. We all would highly recommend this tour company and definitely this particular tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Pam for your kind words! It makes me very happy to know that you felt comfortable with us, that you enjoyed the day and that we will be happy to see you again! All the best to you and your friends!

She customized the tour so it was tailored to our likes and the things we really wanted to see but she also made sure we saw all of the highlights which we also found very interesting and were glad we didn't miss them.

Wonderful day in Gibraltar ! Maike and driver Antonio were great on this day trip. Tony met us and drove us up the mountain in Gibraltar.

Maike was wonderful. We saw the city with all its history thanks to Maike. The history and secrets of the city was amazing through her eyes. She loves her city and you can see why ! We visited Pisaco's museum with Maike, she was so knowledgeable of his work, which made the tour special. When the tour was over, she was quick to offer restaurants, places to shop and showed us how to get around the city. We've made a new friend in Malaga. Thanks TBL for a great guide.

Went on an overnight tour with Maike from Malaga, through Granada, Cordoba to Seville. We were in a comfy Merc van, A/C with a wonderful driver. We really got to see the area, the towns, the best places, good places to eat, and Maike is a wealth of knowledge of the area, the history and the events that took place over the centuries, and the local industries - like the Olive plantations.

What a fantastic day with Maike! As one of our group is an olive oil maker in the US she took us to the finest olive oil companies in Spain ( maybe globally) and it was really special. We learned so much and even had a discussion later among ourselves about Spain and its huge olive industry. Córdoba was a so wonderful (She even arranged a colleague guide because of regulations, Louis who was very well versed unique Cathedral and environs.). She then escorted wondus into the old Jewish section.

Maike was simply superb; her knowledge of Picasso- both his rather complicated life and his art gave my wife and me a new understanding of the artist and the influences surrounding him. We also toured Malaga with Maike, but the Picasso Museum and the house in which he was raised were definitely the highlights for us. I would strongly recommend hiring Maike if you have any interest in Picasso.

Our expert guide Maike & driver met us in Ronda. We set out to explore the scenic and less touristic Andalusian countryside and "white villages." We first went to Setenil, walking through this picturesque town built into the cliffs. We next had lunch and strolled through Zahara de la Sierra; then drove through the mountains to Grazalema. We ended with a ride through the old city of Ronda. Filled with sights of natural beauty and Maike's treasure trove of information, this day tour was priceless in value!

Maeke, our guide, and her wonderful driver made our visit to Málaga and Puerto Banus and Mijas, extraordinarily memorable. We asked for a restaurant where locals in Málaga go and ate the BEST seafood we have ever had anywhere...fresh, prepared simply, and served with pride.

Maike is one of the best guides we have had. She was knowledgeable and brought the history of Andalusia alive. She was also attentive and delivered on "customisation" to an excellent standard. Her warmth and professionalism was evident in her delivery of care towards my family especially as my dad developed pain and had some difficulty walking during the trip. Both Antonia (driver) and her delivered beyond the itinerary on their own time when we least expected it. She's top rate!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shanon! Nothing more important than knowing that you and your family enjoyed Andalusia with me! Warmest regards!

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 told us all we wanted to know about history, the surroundings and of course a lot of details about Alhambra and Granada. She knew it all, and she knew how to tell it!

We couldn't have asked for a better guide than Maike. When my husband became ill, she went out of her way to help us find better accommodations (with a restaurant so that we didn't have to go out for meals). She walked us to the new hotel and waited until we checked in. My husband was able to participate in the tour because Maike adapted it to his limitations at the time. Not only was she professional, she took a sincerely personal approach and we both greatly enjoyed our time with her. Lucky us!

I love both history and this walking tour of Malaga was fantastic. Most tourist just fly in to Malaga airport and immediately head off to a coastal resort or inland to popular places like Granada or Cordoba. However Malaga an ancient city with both Phoenician, Roman, Moorish and Catholic heritage is full of historic architecture and brilliant food. Maike is a warm friendly person, very knowledgable about the area. Highly recommended tour.
