This guided tour was excellent. We were a small group of 4. The guide led us through the Alhambra at a good pace and revealed interesting secrets of the Alhambra at the appropriate place. She was knowledgeable and willing to share her information. Juana highlighted all of the interesting details of each place where we paused.

Merveilleuse découverte avec notre guide yolanda. Une façon de s'imprégner des lieux plus intimiste dans les lumières de la nuit, sans la foule des journées. Yolanda partage à la fois la grande et la petite histoire via références et anecdotes et s'adapte aux intérêts et ages des participants. Nous recommandons cette activité sans réserve !

Highly recommended

Jose was a great guide and quite well informed. The guided tour was well worth it for the interesting insights into the palaces' historical context, their various visual aspects and the messages implicit in the different design and decorative motifs. Better to have a live guide that can respond to your questions as well. One footnote for the guide: the central pond in the Court of myrtles on the way to the Hall of Ambassadors may also be considered as a subtle allusion to the story of Solomon and the Princess of Saba where the latter had to walk on (what she thought was) water to reach the King.
