Very good. Picked up on time from hotel. Tour very informative and interesting (victor was great) and dropped home on time. Well worth the money.
I had a great time with a great guide for this tour. He was informative and easy to understand. I led all the history he included in his narrative. the pickup at the hotel was great as well. I stayed later and had lunch in the village and took photos i the gardens so I returned to my hotel with a nice walk.
We took a guided tour for Alhambra in the morning and a self night time tour of the Nazarene Palace (Alhambra). The night time time tour is assisted with a GPS like device that plays the recorded info about the various locations within the Palace. We were never able to effectively use it and abandoned it. The day time guided tour was awesome. Out guide *Antonio) was extremely knowledgeable and fluent in English. He would answer all questions and seemed to enjoy what he does. I would recommend this tour to anyone. I am not sure if I would recommend GPS like device for nigh time tour.
Excellent tour, knowledgeable guide, the right pace and generally good tour. The only improvement required is a clear unambiguous designation of where the group is to meet in the morning (unless you are picked up at your hotel). We had difficulty finding the meeting place and the tour group. A colored umbrella or flag would also help in making sure you can find your guide in the crowd of people. This said, we had a great time.
It was an informative and good tour with an very experienced guide.
excellent.........Fernando, great guide.
Excellent tour, with a wonderful and knowledgeable guide who spoke perfect English. We learned a lot and the 3 hours went very quickly. A guided tour is in my opinion a must, as we skipped dozens of people waiting in a long slow queue to get tickets.
This was a great tour. We were picked up promptly at our hotel. The tour guide, Antonio, was terrific. It was informative and hassle-free.Well worth the price.
Excellent tour, with both Spanish and English. Tour was a little slow starting, but once we started the guide and the tour was excellent. The tour guide had a thorough knowledge of the Alhambra, it's history and the general life of it inhabitants. It was a very enjoyable experience.
I went there with some friends while I was in Granada and we all had a great time. The venue is quite small, but has a lot of character and is very cosy. The owner, who talked us through the wine tasting, was lovely and very knowledgeable. The selection of wine was great and all had an exciting story behind! The food for pairing was yummy too. The bar includes a small shop of gourmet local products and saw quite a few locals stopping by to buy a few things. I got a couple of items myself as they were very well priced and of great quality; perfect for presents!

A must-see wonder. The Alhambra and Generalife are a beautiful site to see, but to understand it's meaning and importance fully, I definitely recommend a guided tour. As we were a small group of friends we did it privately, that way we had a bit more flexibility to stop in one or other place for pictures etc. The guide was very knowleagable and gave us a very interesting overview not just about the Alhambra but about Granada as well. We learnt so much in such a short period of time! I would definitely visit the Alhambra again, and in the same way!

It was excellent! The bus picked us up on time and our guide was amazing. She knew everything in and out and let us see the palaces, etc with much ease. Only thing is I found out later that there was another section which takes you up near the towers which we didn't see. Not sure why that wasn't included in the tour? Other than that - would recommend it for sure. Wish I remembered the name of our guide but all I know is that her name had some meaning related to the immaculate conception (as she had made that reference)...
I would highly recommend taking a tour as there is so much to see at Alhambra. Plus you don't have to worry about lines or getting timed tickets for Nasrid palace.
When you get to the entrance, it seems like a huge number of people at first. But once you are split into groups and fitted with headsets, it was very manageable. It was also good that they scheduled a break halfway through the tour as the total time is over 3 hours.
Alberto was very nice and knowledgeable. He did talk somewhat fast, but there was a lot of information he had to cover. He was also very accommodating in coordinating one person in our group who was in a wheelchair.
We got picked up at our hotel (make sure to confirm at least 24 hour ahead to get picked up) which made it very convenient. While the open top bus was nice for the way up at 9 AM, it was pretty hot on the way back with the noon sun beating down.
Picked up on schedule. Tour guide good. Tour too long!
It's always good to skip the line. Would have been better if the guide provided more interesting stories about the life back then or details about the architecture. The information was rather basic; easy to acquire via the internet. The hotel pick up was 30 minutes late.
