What people are saying about Province of Granada

The tour was very extensive and informative. A lot of effort was made to show us all the important processes and we were able to take a lot of information with us. Despite the impending major event, everyone took the time to answer all of our questions. If you want to understand/see the process of olive oil production, this is the place for you; the tasting was also very informative. 100% recommendation!!

We really enjoyed going on this tour, our guide Josh was informative, helpful & funny. The timing of the tour was perfect, as we were going uphill touring the unique neighborhoods, we got the perfect sunset pictures in the best spots with beautiful scenes overlooking the Alhambra.

José was a wonderful guide, excellent host explained us everything about olives, oil extraction. Mariza was also very kind and taught us a lot about different oils and the tasting was amazing! We really enjoyed the tour!

The tour was wonderful. Cynthia is a great guide. Kept us, including our 7-years old boy fully engaged.
