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.

We had a really great tour with Mercedes and we fully recommend her. She knows Malaga and its history in great detail. We visited all the main sites of the city (fort, cathedral, Roman theatre etc.), but she also included some nice touches such as a visit to the market and also tasting of the local wine. 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 . I really appreciate it , please be sure that it has been a real pleasure to accompany you and your family. Take a very good care of your self and please transmit to your husband and family my best wishes for 2018 From Malaga , your guide and friend , Mercedes

Sonja RoeUnited States
Our group really enjoyed our shore excursion day with Mercedes. We enjoyed going out of the city to see the white village of Mijas and also back in the city learning about the history and seeing some top highlights of Malaga along with a private tour through the Picasso Museum. We had one in our group with a walking disability and Mercedes was able to work around what he was able to do and the rest of us didn't feel as if we missed anything. We had some great morning tapas and Mercedes did a lovely toast!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good afternoon Sonja, Thank yo so much for your very kind comments. It really had a pleasure accompanying you and your party. Now I think that I can share things and feelings with you !! Here goes my toast for you all ... ...... Those that drink .... Glasses Up .. and then Down .... To all of you .. SALUD ..

Chris W.United States
Mercedes is a seasoned pro who made us feel like we were meeting a friend of a friend for a tour of their town--I felt more like family than a customer. We not only toured the points of interest but were given a clear feeling of the people and the culture of Malaga. Her knowledge was impressive and she imparted it clearly. She was flexible and responsive and we covered the city at a relaxed pace that allowed us to absorb the culture. I would highly recommend Mercedes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you do much Chris for your very kind words It has really been a pleasure to accompany you during your Málaga visit !! And the most important to me has been the way you appreciated our culture and your interest in our people .. again thank you so much and my very best regards and wishes ., For you and family and friends From Malaga Your local guide and friend Mercedes
Cheryl B.United States
Mercedes is an excellent guide. We learned so much not just about present day Malaga, but also the history of the city and the region. She also gave us an extra, she introduced us to Picasso, so that when we toured the museum, we had a much better insight than we would have without her amazing introduction.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Cheryl .. It has been such a pleasure to accompany you .. I am so happy you enjoyed your Malaga Visit !!! With all my very best for you, your family and friends . From Malaga the brilliant !!! Take very good care !!! Love Mercedes
