Maryann A.United States
We had the most amazing, educational, informative, enjoyable tour of Malaga with Mercedes. There are no words to adequately describe the depth and breadth of her knowledge of Pablo Picasso and his hometown of Malaga. The hours we spent with Mercedes were some of the finest, if not the MOST superior, our our 3 weeks in Spain. We encourage you wholeheartedly to book Mercedes as your tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Maryann for such a good review. Good to hear that you enjoyed the Tour and the City. It was great being your tour guide in Malaga and discovering together the man as Pablo Picasso was. I hope that one day you visit us again .. With all my very best wishes for you and your family ..

Notre famille de 6 (21 ans à 76 ans) avons retenu les services de Mercedes pour une visite de Malaga. Tout était parfaitement planifié afin que nous puissions profiter au maximum du temps (4hres) que nous disposions. Mercedes possède une formidable connaissance de l'histoire de la région et de l'Espagne nous avons beaucoup appris. Nous avons apprécié chaque instant de notre visite et chacun des lieux que nous avons visités. Mercedes parle un français impeccable. Nous sommes très satisfait du service reçu.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buenas tardes Richard .. Merci beaucoup pour une si bonne évaluation . Je suis vraiment heureuse que vous et votre famille gardiez un bon souvenir de votre visite à Malaga.

Terry MilneUnited States
Mercedes was a charming and very knowledgeable guide. We walked parts of the city and were driven via taxi to other parts. We had some beautiful views and visited many historic places. We shared some local wine and wonderful local food. We went to the Picasso Museum (Malaga is his home town) and she gave us a very different sort of tour of his works. Very informative with a personal viewpoint. Overall, a most enjoyable tour with a person who loves her city and enjoys showing it off.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Terry , I am so happy to know that you enjoyed the tour and the city . For me, it was a real pleasure to accompany you and share thoughts about our countries !! Thank you to you both for such a lovely time . My very best wishes for next year 2019 .

For the end of the tour, Mercedes took us with a taxi to a great spot where we had a great view of all Malaga. Thank you Mercedes for the memorable tour you gave us !

Deepa SimlotUnited States
Mercedes was very organized in preparing for our tour. Prior to taking us to Gibraltar, she visited the hotel where we were staying in Malaga and figured out the luggage and check-in details to help us with our overall stay in the city. After the Gibraltar tour, she even took the time to show us around Malaga and took us to the beautiful Christmas lighting performance in the evening. One feedback on the actual Gibraltar tour - we would have liked more free time to explore the rock on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Deepa I am so happy your family enjoyed your day in Malaga & Gibraltar Area. Perhaps one day you decide to visit us again . I hope that you are having a great time in our region . Thank you for your very kind comments about my services .
