Private guide for day trips from Marbella Dec/Jan

Our Family with 10 & 11 old kids is staying at Marriott in Marbella late Dec-early Jan and would like to visit Granada, Rondo, and Morocco. Have rental car but would like recommendations of a guide that could make the visit efficient and fun.

To be honest I don't think you need a guide to do Ronda and Granada, they are easily done on your own and you will have lots of wonderful things to see and do.

I'm not sure I'd bother with Morrocco. The guides on the organised tours will take you to places that give them the best commission and the reviews on TA nearly always say they don't get the proper flavour of Morrocco in just a day.

You do not need a guide for Granada or Ronda.

For Granada, read Buying Alhambra Tickets Online.

For both places, read the top questions in each of their forums.

Many people have been disappointed with Morocco because they have been hassled by vendors.

It's true you really don't need guides for the destinations you have mentioned, however if you want to find the real gems of Andalusia then it may be worth chatting to somebody, I do take people on tours occasionally, but I will be out of the country for a few weeks. but there are plenty of people who would guide you.

It really depends on what you want from your trip.
