What a wonderful day! Our driver and guide Peter was punctual and the vehicle was comfortable and clean. He was very knowledgeable about the entire region, personable, and his English was excellent! We had a great walk through Albaicin and then a break for lunch then a short ride to Alhambra where we met our specialist there - Anna. She is lovely and her language skills superb. Our visit there was comprehensive and amazing! Could not have asked or better and we have traveled a lot and been on many guided tours.

It was great but be prepared for a bumpy ride at times on the cobblestone streets.. It was very busy, however the attendants were very attentive to “first come first served”

Our guide and driver, Sergio, was excellent. The day in Granada was very enjoyable and the Alhambra is amazing.

A really good way to see places and to plan future trips or visits.

Did this tour on a rainy day, was perfect to see the city.
