The tour went smoothly. Our pick up time was changed from 5:30am to 7:20, a much more civilized time, which made me happy even before we started. Our guide, Petra was personable and spoke both English and Spanish clearly. We walked a total of 5 miles that day, and several people were not able to do this and stayed behind before we got to the Alhambra. What a shame, because the Alhambra is the biggest attraction in Spain. Please only book this tour if you can walk for 3 hours and climb a few stairs. The comfortable bus ride is 3 hours each way with a break half way so you can rest. The Alhambra is totally worth the long ride and walking. We had a guide, Pablo, for the Alhambra who was very knowledgeable and spoke in clear English. I would recommend this tour as long as walking is not a problem for you.

I highly recommend this tour, our Guide Mr. Antonio is professional and excellent, there are lots of nice surprises during the tour that will transfer you to the golden age of Alhambra.
