This was an excellent way to see the Alhambra in a half day tour. Enrique was so knowledgeable. He was just the right mix of serious history, interesting facts, and humor. He knew how to handle a large group of people without making things feel large. He has a real mastery of his craft. The Alhambra is a MUST SEE of Spain. It was where we gleaned the most information on the history of Spain during our entire 10 days in the country. The company that runs these tours does an excellent and efficient job. Lastly, given the craziness of Granada streets and the business of the Alhambra in general, I highly recommend doing what we did which was to buy the "pick up and drop off at your hotel" feature. Invaluable for making this a stress-free day.
This was a very worthwhile tour to take. Granada is a city rich with history and culture and we could not have done nearly as good a job of getting the gist of the city and seeing all of the right little nooks and crannies without the help of a native tour guide. Our guide (I am forgetting her name now but she was a lovely native of Granada who had learned her English as a nanny in Britain...she was excellent) had a real grasp of the history and culture of Granada. She communicated well, was able to walk the crazy hills of the city without fatigue, and we covered more in two hours than we could have done on our own in two days. You need to be physically fit to take this tour, but it is a superb way to see the old city of Granada and the Albaicin. Don't miss this.
