    Good Tour

    The tour was cancelled due to the unavailability of a guide. After getting up at 6.00 am for the tour,7.45, am we were told when we arrived there that it was cancelled. They rescheduled for 5.00pm. This upset everyone. A group were unable to take the rescheduled tour and we had to reorganize our day and stay an extra night. Not good. We turned up at the allotted time and around 5.10pm a guide turned up. The guide was very apologetic and conducted the tour very well. It was not her fault and she told us she had just been given short notice of this tour. Would not use this company again.

    Discover Alhambra!

    For sure a great experience!! I did not have time to investigate deeply about the Alhambra so this tour was very helpful to fun. Gabriela was a great guide, responded our questions and provided options to do in Granada. This is a great option if you did not find tickets that includes Nasrid Palaces (This was my case).

    Excellent, informative tour

    I signed up for this tour because there were no more tickets available for the Alhambra while we were in Granada and my friends and I really wanted to see it. But now I am so glad we signed up for the tour because I think it elevated the whole visit. Our guide, Gabriella, was very knowledgeable and showed us the most important sights. We were all given headsets so it was easy to hear and understand even when we were wandering through crowded areas. The tour was well paced and designed and we walked away with a much better experience than what I think we would have had if we had made the visit on our own.
