“My group of 6 people took four private tours with Marbella in Style: Granada, Seville, Ronda and Gibraltar. Lana was our guide for Granada, Seville, and Ronda. She did an excellent job. Very informative and fun too. Carl was our guide for Gibraltar and he knew everything about the place. Our driver was wonderful too.

If you are looking for a comfortable, reliable, tour paced to your liking go with Marbella in Style.

No complaints whatsoever.

We flew into Malaga and Java at Marabella-in-style picked us up in a beautifully polished and clean vehicle. On to the Picasso museum in Malaga, then Granada, where we stayed two nights at the Parador.

This was so good as didn’t have the hassle of driving or taxis and we had help with our luggage. Also visiting Malaga which we probably wouldn’t have done was a bonus.

Marabella-in -style then picked us up at Granada and we drove to a Cordoba and met with Elena who gave us three hours of inciteful explanation of the mosque and its integration into the catholic community. Lunch was fabulous with wonderful tapas, and then onto Seville to our hotel there with our driver Java. This was an exercise in which we certainly had to pay a little extra, but for peace of mind, feeling secure and all stress taken out of the travel, it was so worth it. I would definitely use this company again, their staff are fabulous.

Coordinated with Lana by email in advance and created full day itinerary

included pickup hotel, Mercedes transport, rest stops, in depth stroll thru city and old quarters/markets, early tapas lunch and than few hours at Alhambra followed by Local Restaurant with good food that looks directly into the entire compound on hill. Knowledge of Lana (guide) was deep and her overall knowledge of Spain was astonishing for detail. Very professional and friendly. Lloyd

I visited this office with questions about a private tour to Granada. When it turned out that our schedules would not mesh, Lana went out of her way to help me arrange a tour I could do n my own.

Six of us visited Marbella from 7 to11 May and engaged Marbella-in-Style for our private guided tours to Granada (Alhambra), Ronda and Cordoba. We enjoyed our tour to Alhambra especially the Garden which was very beautiful. We stopped at Ruta de Veleto restaurant for lunch, recommended by Julio. It was a great choice as the food and service were excellent.

Of all the private tours, Ronda was the most memorable. It is a small town but the architecture and scenery were captivating. Our visit to the 2 wineries in Ronda were beyond our expectation. In fact, we spent too much time at the second winery hosted by Miguel and Isabel. The home cooked food served by Isabel paired with their wines were amazing. Leo, our driver knowing that we love Gambas (prawns), on his own initiative, requested Isabel to cooked garlic Gambas for us. We have so much fun that we went a bit overboard and bought 20 cases of wines from them.

What impressed us most about Marbella in Style was our driver Leo. Though his spoken English was not great, he made every effort to communicate and recommend us places to visit and restaurants to go for our meals. He was punctual, hardworking and helpful.

Thanks Marbella in Style.
