What people are saying about Granada, Spain

Good service. Recommended. The only problem is that in the middle of the route there was no audio and the explanations of the sites could not be heard. I recommend the bus to allow you to get on and off

It's great to tour the city and you get off and on at the points of interest, they explain very well, and they go by very smoothly, there's hardly any waiting.

You don't have to wait long for the train to come along. It's a little uncomfortable because of some of the bumps on the streets but enjoyable.

Very pretty!!! And it is the best transport for the small streets of Granada.

Great. Not too crowded, and with stops at the most interesting places.
