What People Are Saying About Granada
After a little confusion initially at the meeting place, our guide was extremely engaging and informative. She was excellent at explaining the history of the city of Granada and the background to the Alhambra Palace and surrounding structures. Would thoroughly recommend the tour.
My husband and I both enjoyed this tour immensely and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
It was an excellent tour of the Alhambra. The tour guide was intelligent and had great knowledge of history and art. We were able to change our tour to Spanish. Get you Guide gave great service.
The guide was extremely informative and helpful and dealt excellently with all participants on the tour. I really enjoyed the tour and was very motivated to follow up historical and cultural aspects afterwards. For convenience I think particaipants should be allowed to meet the guide at the Alhambra ticket desk or should be picked up at their hotel rather than the roundabout pick up at an akward location which required a taxi at 7.45 am. Why did the tour need to start so early?
Overall, I had a great experience with this tour. I learned a lot and it was fun to see the highlights of such a big place rich in history.
