The most enjoyable and stunning walk of a life time. We were taken back almost to a setting 800 years ago. What a view to watch Alhambra! Speechless. Our guide is incredible and she tried to pack so much history and culture during our hike.

We love the tour! Francisco was a great guide. He knows a lot of things about the neighborhoods and he recommended a lot of things to do in Granada. Just a reminder, you have to walk a lot: a lot of stairs but it was worth it!
