Our group of 8 had a phenomenal day to Granada, Alhambra and Generalife Gardens. We were picked up on a small bus with 2 other couples from France and Germany. Guillermo spoke mostly in English for our drive to Granada giving us history of the area. We had a wonderful 1 hour walking tour of Granada and then lunch on our own before heading to the Alhambra and gardens. There, we met Sabine who was a wonderful and well informed guide. She was engaging and made our visit memorable. Our drive back to Almeria was a different route which gave us even more sights to see!! I highly recommend this tour!!

A good trip, worth seeing

The sites are worth it and the guide on site was excellent. The bus and assistant were fine for basic information - we broke off from the city tour to see the cathedral and royal chapel, it seemed crazy to go to see Granada and walk around saying see that some time when you come for longer. We found a great tapas place in town as well. Many people had problems in the heat - take plenty of water for the tour.

Very good tour!

Me and my partner really enjoyed a tour. A bit shame that tour in Granada was so short,but we were very pleased about Alhambra tour. We had very nice local guide in Alhambra who left impression that she is enjoys what she is doing. Unfortunately can’t remember her name. We are very pleased about Pepe Tours guide Guillermo as well.

Very nice tour.

The guide Guillume was wery good with lot of information on the way to Granda. The guide in the Alhambra was exellent. It was nice to have time in the city center before the visit to Alhambra.

Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide. A long day, but came prepared for this and the sites and scenes keep you wanting more. Thank you.
