Enjoyed tour, didn't realise it included a city tour, guide very good.
Had lunch in Hotel America, bloody awful
This activity is extremely overpriced, and we did not receive what we had paid for. Prior to booking, it said that the company provided transportation to and from the hotel - which in actuality, it did not. This ended up costing us an additional 60 euro for a taxi there and back. Also, I tried the day before to contact the company as it said to confirm 24 hours before the activity however, when I tried calling, there was never anyone there. When we finally did get to the establishment, we were late because our taxi was caught in traffic, and they still were not ready for us. When the Flamenco teacher and guitarist were ready, we went to a different location because there was a party booked where we were supposed to be. The teacher and guitarist were very nice and friendly, and taught us a bit about the history of flamenco. Our 90 minute private lesson though actually only lasted 30 minutes. So we paid over 400 US dollars when you factor in the taxi fair for a 30 minute flamenco lesson where we learned about a 2 minute step sequence...not even with the arm or hand movements. It was a fun little activity, but the price is absolutely ludicrous. I travel a lot, and will not be using this service again, and will not be recommending it to anyone either.
This tour was amazing!
The ZambaFlamenco show was fabulous and we had front row seats including 1 drink. Was one of the highlights of our trip to southern Spain. The walking tour of Albaicin was just a short walk to a viewpoint of the Alhambra. Description needs to be updated to reflect that the walking tour is NOT a tour.
Very cramped seating, late starting, poor vision, and stuffy cave with little a/c for the flamenco. Walking tour OK but short and not very informative. Bus to and from venue took ages, all around houses and was cramped too. Not a pleasant or relaxing evening at all.
There was some confusion as the tour organisers seemed unable to pick me up from my hotel as was expected and paid for. it meant that I had to walk for ten minutes late at night and on my own - I'm 72 years old - from the drop off point to my hotel.
We'll organized tour
It was too small a group for what we wanted. All the reviews talk about how much fun it is and everyone has a few drinks. Whilst the tour was interesting and the guide did his best, there were only 2 couples. Ourselves, speaking English and a spanish couple who spoke no English. This meant the guide had to spread his time and repeat everything twice.
From pick-up to drop off - FANTASTIC. Spend the extra dollar and get the dinner. Well worth it and better seats! The show was touristy and fun. Just what you wanted on this tour. No disappointment. It was as expected.
speakers English was not the best but still understandable .. she knows the town inside out so that was awesome
Lovely show. Wish the pickup was punctual or at least 5-10 minutes late.
The show was great, however the walking tour was not so great, the guide did not give us any information about anything.
The tour guides where not really informative and one of them, despite his very kind attitude, his English was horrible!
The Falmanco place was quite commercial and we learned later that there are other places arr more authentic
The transport and time keeping was very good
the whole experiences was not satisfactory, its started with a late pick up time from the hotel, the guide wasn't appropriate, the way he greeted us and he kept order us around the whole time on route, there was not enough information giving to us of whats going to happen or what was the schedule, the local guide information wasn't good or he didn't share any information about neither the flamingo show , the trip included a night walking tour of albaicin which didn't happen, the whole experiences wasn't up to my expectation,
i did expect a better experience overall and i was so disappointed
The show itself is very good. Hotel pick up did not work. Were told to catch a cab which they paid for both ways.
This was a great tour. Carmen our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and personable, We stayed at the tapas bar for more drinks and tapas.
It was good,
the pick up was a bit muddled but once we got on the bus all was well, everything went according to plan and we loved it.
GREAT!!!! Albaicín is so beautiful at NIGHT!!! As well as the ALHAMBRA view!!!
The Sacromonte flamenco was SUPERB!!!
The flamenco show itself was good and I would recommend seeing it, but I would not recommend this overpriced version. The bus was late picking us up, the guide spoke no English and jumped off he bus leaving us with the driver without saying anything to us. The driver crazily drove us through the area (expected this part) and then stopped and motioned for us to get Ou, pointed down the road and drove off. We were sat in the overcrowded cave for the show but the tables were at the very back of he cave-worst seats in the house and the most expensive. The meal was okay but not worth the cost. A different guide met us after the show. He was good for the walking tour afterward but we felt so shuffled around by then and had already seen much of it that it didn't save the evening. Overall-see the show, get your own tickets and save tons of money.
The dance show was good but the walking tour is nothing but just a 10 minute tour to take some photos.
Exciting, unique, and wonderful! One of the highlights of our trip! The venue isn't the most comfortable. The language barrier is significant. You'll be shoulder to shoulder with people you don't know. But the show is amazing! The rhythms are complex and fascinating. The dancing is enthralling. This experience was worth every penny and more.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is because, upon exiting the venue, there were a few moments of confusion where our group didn't know where to go or what to do. We were collected by one of the workers (someone we had not yet met) and led quickly through the streets to one of the Alhambra viewpoints, where our guide stopped to tell us something. (But I have my doubts that any in our group could understand what she was saying.) That was the walking tour part. When she was done, we were given about 5 minutes to appreciate the very nice night-time view. And then it was over. Not much of a "walking tour." But a fun "cultural moment" nevertheless. The van ride through the Albaicin up to Sacromonte is an experience of a lifetime...
It was a wonderful night, filled with laughter, culture, and amazing rhythm.
I do not recommend this tour... FAIL!
the performers were not good and not pleasant to watch... they look like they had a hard time dancing..there was also a pathetic looking performer... viator should get another place instead of this one...
It was great to watch the show since it was first time for me.
1) Actually, our hotel is located not so far but it took us about one hour to reach there due to the route taken while return was quite smooth.
2) It was too narrow and not comfortable enough to watch the show without any place to keep our glass for drink,
3) It was so nice view of the palce while I did not expect such great view. Ilumination was so beatuful and explantion through the walking tour was interesting.
