“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.

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

My husband and I had a private tour of Granada for the day. Julio, our guide was very friendly, spoke excellent English, informative and showed us all the sights we wanted to see. Our driver was very good and we had a very comfortable journey there and back. The guide at the Al-Hambra was excellent and we had a great day out. We were shown the streets of Granada and witnessed students hanging out on the streets and in the snack bars. We found the tour fascinating from start to finish and we were delighted with the whole experience.
I would definitely recommend this tour company if you fancy a private tour seeing the sights of Spain.

We booked three different tours with Julio from Marbella in Style. Each was unique and wonderful. Julio told us about the history of each place we visited, brought us to interesting out of the way places to eat, lunch in Granada at Ruta del Veleta. Tour to Ronda was amazing. Visited the bullfighting stadium, walked along the gorge and then headed to wine country. First we visited Juaquin Fernandez Bodega. Excellent tour of the winery, delicious wine. Next up was lunch at Bodega Garcia Hildago where we toured the vineyard, ate grapes right off the vine, and had an amazing home-cooked meal made by Isabella alongside wines made by Miguel. Top notch all the way. By the time we parted, we felt like Julio was not just our host but a good friend.
