Date: Jun 13/18

Roland gave us a wonderful tour of the Alhambra palaces and Generalife Gardens. His knowledge of the history of the palaces and gardens was excellent and his anecdotes relating to the occupants of the palaces made the place come to life. His explanations were clear, and he was very willing to answer our questions. He also led us through th wold town and pointed out places of interest. There were six of us and we all had a fantastic day with Roland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice compliments and all your questions were absolutely interesting. I hope you got the real feel of Andalusia as I wanted you to get. Warmest Roland

Roland was an excellent guide and driver. We were a group of six adults and travelled with him from Seville to Granada via Ronda. He had a fantastic knowledge of the cities and of Andalusia generally and his communication was very clear and extremely helpful in enhancing our knowledge. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day with Roland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. The trip Seville-Ronda-Granada is really fascinating and I think you took the best decision in doing it that way. Regards Roland

Roland gave us a great tour of Malaga. He uses a audio transmitter and provided a receiver and earbuds for us so that we could hear him even in crowds. When we stopped to take a picture without warning him, we didn't miss a thing. He was waiting for us at the meeting area with a sign with our names on it so he was easy to find. As he got to know us better he adjusted the tour to see more things we would find interesting. We saw a lot and plan to return again for a longer visit. It was a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a lovely day we had together and hoping to see you again round Malaga area. Take good care. Roland

Roland Is a truly wonderful and informative guide that offered us a great feel for the beautiful city he so well represents. His commentary and knowledge of history, art and the traditions and customs as well as local knowledge of the social and political workings of the city helped to make this one the most enjoyable days of touring we ever had. Additionally, the natural beauty and friendliness of the people in Malaga made this a place we can't wait to return to. Thanks for an amazing visit.

Our guide, Roland, was THE BEST!! He picked 8 of us up at a home we rented in Malaga (in a roomy van) to take us to the ferry, narrating the whole way. The tour was as described -- perfect in every way . . . Roland was extremely knowledgeable and personable too! Once in Morocco, we were also accompanied by a local guide (Samir -- excellent). If you are choosing between guides, please pick Roland -- you will not be disappointed. He & Samir were so much fun to spend the day with and took great care of us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your compliments! I have to thank also my good friend Samir in Tangiers for his great work. All the best Roland

Roland K was a wonderful guide for our tour of Ronda. He was on time, professional but very friendly, informed and educated on Ronda history, the history and rituals of bullfighting and he was knowledgeable of city areas for shopping, dining and additional sights to see after our tour ended. The walking was leisurely, and although hot(90's)....teenagers & parents enjoyed bullring, churches, Father Don Bosco's home and views/ history of the bridges. Would highly recommend to future travelers.

Roland was one of the top guides out of the 7 we engaged this trip. He is so personable and his depth of knowledge and level of detail were dazzling. We learned so much--things not covered in guide books--that his tour was like a crash-course combination of history, art, religion, geo-politics, mythology, architecture, and sociology. Still, it was well-paced and organized, never rushed nor overwhelming. Roland is a real professional and Rennaissance man (plus, we enjoyed discovering his music.)

Roland was a very good guide and helped us enjoy Malaga more than we could have possibly done on our own. He listened to us and we decided to change plans based on chatting with him. The Picasso museum with all his knowledge made it fun and very special. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your compliments. It was definately a better choice for the day and Malaga is becoming a marvellous city to visit. Take care Roland

Roland is an outstanding guide. This is the 2nd time we used him. Once again, he gave us a highly interesting, informative and entertaining tour. Not only were his historical stories fascinating, but so were his re-telling of the legends. Roland is a AAA+ tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey, thanks again Elliot. Both of you were wonderful students :-). It is always exciting guiding people who really appreciate our culture, traditions etc. and have a great background knowledge in History. I forget to write down the Flamenco in Granada: Los Gallos at Sacromonte. Have fun!!! Roland

Roland K. was there as he said that he would be to take us to Ronda. This trip was not offered by the cruise ship and the four of us booked it and picked Roland as our Guide. Although this was the most expensive excursion we booked, when all said and history; we were glad we booked it. Roland spoke four languages, he was very knowledgeable on all that we visited and concerning any questions we would ask during our almost 2 hour journey. Going to Malaga? See Ronda, Roland knows the way!

Roland is very informative, accomodative, patient & friendly. Ronda is beautiful - rolling green hills, breathtaking scenery, perfect weather, good food with some shopping thrown in. Don't miss the iberico ham from Ronda!

Our guide was a gentlemen, English,was good. The tour was very interesting, being a walking tour and we are not walking people it wasn't tiring. We stop for refreshment's it was a outside café, place he goes on his own, he made reservation for us, after we finish our tour for lunch which he joined us. We enjoyed him and felt safe. It was while worth it and fun. The Becks 3/28/2015

A great tour to explore Morocco in one day - local guide is very energetic and gives a good commentary on the beautiful city. Food is great with local music & dance. A good round-up by Roland who chaperons us to and from Tangiers with pick-up and drop off at our hotel. Thumbs-up.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, Tangiers Tour is in deed a cultural adventure and to make it happen another tough one, but finding people who are really adventurous and with high expectations interested in going to Africa is already an Adventure. :-). R.

Roland was an excellent guide. Because we had spent a little time in Malaga a few years ago, we had ideas of what we wanted to visit or revisit. Roland put other items into the mix--like the fish market (the best I have ever seen)--and that made for a very special tour. He was generous with his time and knowledge and we had excellent conversations

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joan, thanks a lot for your company. It was great going through the market :-)

Our family had a fabulous tour of Ronda with Roland. He was gracious and well versed in the history of Ronda. We learned so much from him that we wouldn't have on our own. He took us to a fantastic place for lunch and upon request, introduced us to an amazingly delicious shop of Spanish ham and cheese. Ronda is a beautiful little town and our walking tour with Roland was terrific.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andy & Family, it is always are pleasure to travel with such a nice family like you, interested in history and general culture. We had a great time in all 3 tours. Next we have to do Tanger :-) Best regards Roland

We spent 3 days touring with Roland and enjoyed each one tremendously! In Marbella, we had a tour of the quaint Old Town Center. It's quite lovely. He provided us with interesting bits of history and architecture.We also explored Puerto Banus which has a completely different feel from the Old Town Center. One of the highlights of our tour was seeing the Dali sculptures. Roland is a fantastic guide. We enjoyed his company and highly recommend him.

Roland gave our family an incredibly extensive tour of Granada and Alhambra. During the drive from Malaga, he provided us with in depth information about Spain's culture and agriculture. Roland is tremendously knowledgeable about Alhambra's history and architecture. We learned a great deal from him about Spain's history and the Moors' culture. We also toured the Royal Chapel and the small winding streets of Albaicin. Roland enthralled us with stories about Spain's rich history. He is an exceptional guide.

Ah!Roland again. More adventures in Spanish culinary delights. Our Tapa tour began with Iberian ham, luscious Spanish tomatoes, cheese, olives, bread. Second bar, amazing tuna loin drizzled with olive oil and tomatoes, octopus, prawns and more fresh bread and olives. And last, baby eel (gulas) in garlic butter sauce, fried egg plant with sugar cane syrup. He also was patient in letting the wives do some shopping between Tapa bars.....Way to go Roland!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That was really a wonderful night with you, showing you around Marbella and letting me choose your diner :-). Saludos

Our first tour in Spain to Ronda set the standard by which we rated all others. Roland was absolutely professional, courteous, very knowledgeable and considerate of our every comfort. He shared the history of Ronda without overloading us with too much history. He chose a restaurant for lunch which began our eating adventures in Spain. (Blood sausage with eggs. Ahi salmon with salmon eggs. No pizza that day!) We will take a tour to Tangiers with him on our next go around. Thanks Roland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are always welcome. That was a really enjoyable day. Take care. Roland
