What People Are Saying About Granada
Awesome history and original features in all the palaces, gardens and other venues. A big part of any such tour is the guide's knowledge and presentation. Sabina was excellent.
I had an outstanding time touring the Alhambra with my English-speaking guide (whose name unfortunately escapes me). I would pay more than $40 to have another tour experience with her. Also, the company is communicative and ethical. Finally, skipping lines at major sites is well worth the admission.
We are so glad we booked this guided tour. Not only did it do away with worrying about ticket purchases/printing, but we would not have enjoyed the Alhambra as much as we did if it weren't for Ana's narration and stories. She was very good and also very respectful. Thank you, Ana!
The guide, Isabela made the visit especially memorable by conveying the social, religious, political history of the Alhambra in a clear manner
Our Spanish-English speaking guide Isabella was very knowledgeable and we learned such a lot about fascinating Alhambra and this region developed throughout its long history by diverse cultures.
