What people are saying about Generalife

Our guide for Alhambra, Antonio, gave us the history of Alhambra in a very interesting and authentic way. He is very friendly and responsible towards his group. In the evening Ignacio picked us up at the agreed place on time. He was also very friendly and concerned about the group's welfare. Kudos to both leaders.

Antonio‘s tour through the senses is impressive. This is the second time i have had the pleasure to learn the fascinating history around the Alhambra and Granada listening to Antonio and cast knowledge. Highly recommend it and worth every euro.
