Booked at the last minute for a visit the next day with an English-speaking guide, we do not regret this 100% private three-hour visit at all. Finally our guide speaks very good French and is very professional. The Alhambra, Generalife and bastide palaces are truly magnificent. An excellent souvenir from Granada. Thanks!

Our guide was really good. However, she was 1/2 hour late and we were not told anything about the delay until we even wrote to you via whatsapp. Then you get a little worried if you have been taken by the nose. Furthermore, it was very difficult to find the meeting place. The name Polinario at the cafe / bar we were supposed to meet does not exist, so it was very confusing. It would have been nice if the guide had stood with a sign with your name so you knew you had ended up in the right place. But otherwise a super good trip.

Despite being delayed for our tour start time, the guide (Isabella) and her assistant waited for us patiently. They were professional throughout, as well as being knowledgable and gave us the background to the various historical sites in the Alhambra. We didn't need to wait behind long queues which was a relief.
