What people are saying about Granada
The visit made with Francisco, our guide, to the Albaicín and Sacromonte was splendid, both for the tour itself, and for the explanations and anecdotes that he told us during the 2 hours we were with him. In addition, being a very small group, of only 5 people, it facilitated the relationship within the group and made it much more enjoyable.
Juana was a great guide with so much knowledge and fun facts about the history of Granada. And watching the sunset covering the Alhambra in golden light was magical! We highly recommend!
The experience has been great and the guide Francisco, has been great, telling the history and anecdotes of Albahicin and Sacromonte. We have been very satisfied
Good and calm guide who knew well to tell and guided us well. We had earplugs in which we got, which made it perfectly intelligible.
Sacromonte may be neglected. Don't expect caves!
