Travel through the centuries on this 2.5-hour walking tour of the most charismatic quarters of Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte. Learn the history, legends and local culture, guided by an official tour guide. Visit the remains of the glorious dynasties that ruled the last Muslim kingdom of the Iberian Peninsula. Walls, gates, palaces and mosques await you. Starting from the city center, you'll wander the narrow alleys of the Albaicin – the Moorish quarter. Be amazed by the white houses and the flowered balconies. Continue into the Sacromonte, the "flamenco" quarter of Granada.

    Gabriela was a fantastic guide who shared a lot of great information about the city and its history and was fun and enthusiastic and showed us a few great spots away from the tourist masses. Really interesting. We never would have been able to appreciate the Albaicin and Sacromonte as well on our own.

    You must do it!

    It was long term dream visit Andalusia, and 7 days tripp became 12 because of Granada. Granada and Granadinos are beyond words. I booked to Albaicin & Sacromonte Guided Walking Tour and I repeated that with Josh as he is excellent guide. Josh also gave free tour in a city, which was amazing! His passion, his knowledge was so impressive, he helped so much to discover Granada so I doubled my stay in a city. I also booked through this agency a Flamenco night, so I had four program with them. Totally worth it! I had a bit historical background knowledge already but I was best this way to discover, was so interesting!! I could not find so many hidden spot alone and learn from it so much. This company, this people have true passion to show and share experience in Granada and loves people. Really. (which is amazing if you think of it 4 million visitors/tourist in Granada per a year) Thank you! And now I love more Granda because of great hospitality of Grandinos. <3

    Wonderful guided tour through narrow streets and cave dwellings

    Excellent walking guide through narrow streets and cave dwellings in both historic neighborhoods. Plenty of uphill walking but well worth the sights and views to be seen especially of the vantage point of the Alhambra. Being a late 6pm walk instead of originally scheduled 5pm helped with the heat being more bearable! Would highly recommend this tour to all even with small kids like we did!
