A busy but excellent tour that gives you lots of information about such a wonderful site. It was great to have someone show you small details that may have missed on a self-guided tour. It was great to hear from someone who is so passionate about the area as Edu our guide was. He was so interesting to listen to that you really didn't notice how far you had walked and up how many steps! Great taste of the Alhambra with details you would not pick up on just an audio tour - a must! And if you get Edu as your guide you are in for a treat.

Alhambra was beautiful, it was one of the highlights of our trip. We walked from our hotel in town, up to Albaicin and hiked up to Alhambra. The climb from Albaicin up to Alhambra though nice, is tiring. I would suggest a taxi ride up to the Alhambra entrance to save some energy before the 3h tour. Alhambra is filled with history and definitely worth visiting. Our guide Edu was entertaining and humorous, sharing with us stories along the way.
