What people are saying about Province of Granada

We stayed in Spain for two weeks and this was honestly the best day of our vacation! Pedro, the guide, was absolutely fantastic. He was so considerate and patient, which made one feel super safe but still there was lots of adventurous stuff to do. Yet there were always options for people who didn’t want to cliff jump or slide down the rocks, so you didn’t have to quit the whole tour if you didn’t want to do an activity. Pedro always encouraged everyone to try the activities but was never pushy. The canyon itself is also astoundingly beautiful. Very recommendable!

Our guide Maria was great! I was the only English speaker in the group but she made sure to take the time to translate everything for me. I was also given a delicious vegetarian option of cheese, bread, and an olive purée instead of pig for tapas which was great! Overall it was a great experience and 100% worth the money!

At first I was a little tired and didn't want to continue, but in the end I continued and it was worth the very nice visits, the very nice monitors, the truth is that I would repeat.

Great day able to see some vilages, great landscape and an interesting ham dryer factory

Huge fun experience! Super beautiful environment… it really stunned me.
