Very interesting tour, off the beat track. Rolando's tour adds little nuisances and history that makes the tour personable and enjoyable

Tour: #101343, Half-day trip to Ronda, Marbella, Andalucia, Spain    view tour
Date: Dec 31/19

We traveled with Roland to Ronda & Tangiers in December of 2018. We enjoyed the tours so much that when we visited this year with our family we wanted to tour with him. Roland was very flexible and accommodating [and the TBL staff were very helpful] when we had to make adjustments. Roland is very knowledgeable about the history of Ronda. He made the tour interesting to our diverse group (even the children) as we walked around this town built "on" a gorge. We especially enjoyed the bull-fighting ring.

Tour: #102059, Granada from Malaga in a Private Daytrip, Marbella, Andalucia, Spain    view tour
Date: Dec 28/19

To travel to Granada, we had a nine passenger van that was a bit uncomfortable for 9 passengers, so Roland offered to take 2-3 of us with him in his very comfortable AUDI sedan. Roland is very knowledgeable about Granada, its history, its architecture and the diversity of cultures and people that have populated it through the centuries. He was very patient with the children (and the parents) and sought to make the trip more enjoyable for all of us. He chose a great restaurant nearby for our tired group.

Roland has very extensive knowledge about the history of Malaga.Very nice pace walking tour thru the streets of Malaga and learned a lot in a very short period of time.He is very friendly And involves you in his way to the trip rather than just providing information only. I will highly recommend Roland for your tour guide.

This was our third day in a row with Roland. We hated to leave him. He is full of information and history about Spain, Tangiers, and Rock of Gibraltar. It was an amazing 3 days. He was so kind and went out of his way to make our trips interesting and fun. He is wonderful! I would book with him again if I return to Malaga.

Roland is an excellent tour guide. He was able to give us a working historical knowledge of Malaga. Really enjoyed seeing the marketplace and the old city. Lunch at Pimpo was especially flavorful. Would highly recommend Roland for a personal Picasso Museum guide. He made the visit very mentally stimulating.

Roland was probably the best tour guide our group has ever had (even compared o the superb performance by the other 2 guides we had on this trip). His depth of knowledge & willingness to share it with us was amazing. He is also extremely likeable. Kudos to Tours by Locals for having such excellent people.

Roland set everything up in Morocco. Once we arrived, we then connected with a tour guide and driver in Morocco. Roland was with us every step of the way, right until we arrived back to Spain and drove us back to our hotel. Roland was one of the best tour guides I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He is a needle in the haystack. A true gem!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice compliments. We had a great day, yes :-) Roland

Roland is an excellent guide, interesting, knowledge, friendly and very professional. He took our family of 4 on a day trip to Ronda and customized so we could visit a local Winery for tapas and wine tasting. His Audi car was very comfortable and the day was perfect. We would highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice compliments. It was a pleasure to take you to that winery in Ronda. Roland

Great tour! Roland is an outstanding guide. He is extremely knowledgeable, a great communicator and has a very pleasant personality. I really don't think we could have found anyone better. I shall request Roland if I am in the area on another trip, and highly recommend him to everyone. His associate in Gibraltar, Tommy, was equally wonderful and it was obvious that he truly enjoyed showing us the area where he grew up. Too bad I can't give them both six stars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Charlie, it was fun having you guys on my Malaga tour. I enjoyed a lot showing you the most highlights of Malaga. Thanks for your compliments. Roland

Booking a trip with a service that I knew nothing about made me a bit nervous. The reviews were excellent so I took the chance. WOW was I glad I did. Roland was fantastic in every way. His communication before the trip put me at ease. He picked us up in a nice van and drove us all to the Ferry. He gave information the entire time. One unexpected perk of the private tour was his ability to get us through lines quickly. The guide in Tanger was fantastic too. Oh the meal was another! EXCELLENT

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John, Thank you for your nice compliments regarding my Tangier tour.

I absolutely recommend this trip if planning a day at Tangier's from Malaga. Roland was very knowledgeable, courteous, and very helpful. The whole trip went very smoothly without any hassle at all. Mohammed, the Tangier's guide was similarly very courteous, knowledgeable and well spoken All in all, I highly recommend Roland & Toursbylocals!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice compliments. It was also a pleasure to be your guide. Happy Semana Santa
