The trip to Alhambra was very well organized. The pick up, timing, confort… everything was excellent! Our special thanks to our guide Enrique Conesa. Our tour was in Spanish. His knowledge and passion about history of Alhambra made this trip unforgettable.

Enriique was the best giving us lots of invaluable info about Malaga and the area heading to Alhambra. We loved his first stop big picture overview of the landscape before we entered the area. We appreciated hi enthusiasm and knowledge for the sites we visited in the Alhambra. Having only 6 clients was perfect!!!

Great trip, picked up on time from Malaga. Good driver although he did not speak English. Taken to Granada but by the time an English speaking company representative arrived we only had 50 minutes to look around which was disappointing. Taken to the Alhambra and excellent 3 hour tour by Carlos. Lots of steps and walking so perhaps not for the less able. Amazing place to visit. Return to Malaga on time. Overall a good trip.
