Juanita was amazing. A history buff who told us a lot about the Alhambra and its rich history and also a tapas affectianado, who gave us great tips for tapas crawling. Juanita was very informative, friendly and fun! Would highly recommend this tour to others! Ask for Juanita if you want to know about the secret tapas places in the city!!
