Stephanie is an excellent guide! Five other in a party registered for the tour never showed up and she tried to call them several times. Nevertheless, she gave Said, from Turkey and myself, a delightfully informative tour of everything, including the Mosque, Royal Chapel and Cathedral. For any American who’s taken a Western Civilization class, this is a must while in Granada! I highly recommend it and Stephanie to you! It was especially poignant during Holy Week for Christians…a bonus! Don (70 and counting and still traveling solo across Europe as in college but at a little more relaxed pace) from Atlanta, GA.

The Full Day Ticket is perfect for exploring the Alhambra. You can get to all areas and the morning appointment for the Nazrid Palace was great. There weren't that many people there. An additional audio guide to explain the complex is a must have. Only costs 6€ extra. Just make sure it's fully charged. Mine was already over before leaving the Alhambra (about 30 minutes beforehand, OK since I've seen everything, but it's still a shame)

Alhambra: Arrival and departure was difficult. All taxis occupied. Would have been good, a phone no. to have for a taxi. We just hadn't reckoned with the difficulties of finding the way on foot. Our entrance time to the Nasrid Palace was 7pm, but we had to return the audio guide at 8pm. That was stress!

Julio was a fantastic guide. A deepest knowledge about cathedral and related history.

A very interesting Tour and the exceptional guide Jorge
