I'm not sure you can go to southern Spain and miss a day trip to Granada. The Gardens were lovely and the palace gave us such a sense of amazing Ottoman architecture and easy to see how the Spanish reinvented some motifs which eventually became what we see in the southwest of the US. A good day trip - it's a must.
tour guide and driver were pleasant and knowledgeable .English is limited versus Spanish even if the majority of tourists were English speaking. The tour guide for the Alhambra Palace was very good and knowledgeable but again not as clear in English as in Spanish. I'm sure the Gardens were more colorful in the spring and summertime, but overall we enjoyed the Palace and the recommendations for lunch and places to go in the city center of Granada were accurate .Wish we had more time.
Wow. What a place, with amazing history. Our local guide was very knowledgeable. Had a great lunch in Granada. Tour guide, Nati, was very helpful. Our driver Diego was great. Definitely a must see.
very interesting to learn about the history from an experienced guide.
This is a fantastic trip. The Guides are excellent . IIt was a thorough enjoyable trip.
Beautifull gardens and palace, definitely worth a visit.Helps to put the hystory of the moorish invasion of Spain into reality.If visiting out of season take warm cardigan or coat as positioned in the mountains and really cold in the gardens and palace.Trip well organised with plentry of coffee breaks.
This tour was excellent, we loved the fact that the tour guide spoke English and only English not 3 other languages along with it. Very informative tour, we would recommend this tour to others.
Tour guide in Granada very knowledgeable with good sense of humor.
Ensured that customer with physical disability was attended.
Thank you , I recommend to take tour .
Perfect. This tour is very well organized. The tour picked me up at the hotel and brought me back. Lots to see with knowledgable guides and always positive and accommodating. A must see!
Was a fantastic tour. The guide was very informative, providing history and little stories. As a group our guide was very good at giving us time to enjoy the palace and gardens and ask questions. We did not feel like we were being herded through.
The actual tour into Granad was wonderful. We strolled through Generalife and the interior of the palace, there was enough time to appreciate what we were seeing. The information from our local was informative without being too much.
However, the pick up schedule really needs to be rethought. We were the first to be picked up at Estepona McDonald's at 5:30 AM. By ther time we had wound throufgh many side streets to pick others up at their hotels it was 3 hours later that we finally left Malaga - a mere 45 minute commute away. It was then 10:30 before we were deposited at the end of the tour again at McDonalds . A few other central pick up spots would have made a great difference to the length of the day.
Well worth doing. The Alhambra Palace and the Generalife Gardens are beautiful. The Palace would be even better if at least some of the rooms were furnished to show what they would have looked like. Watch out for pick-pockets in the Albaycin, though - one of our group was targeted, but we managed to catch the offenders!
Great tour, The Alhambra Palace is a wonderful site and worth the trip alone. It was raining so our walking tour of the city itself was turned into a drive and was not as much fun but still worth the money.
An absolutley perfect trip to Granada! Tour picked us up in Marbella on time and we made rest stops. After arriving at Granada we were greeted by a wonderful tour guide who was the nicest sweetest person. Had a blast and this unesco site should be on everyone;s agenda while visiting Spain!
There really are not words to describe the magnitude of this site! We can well understand why it is a World Heritage Site. They are very well organized to handle the 7800 plus visitors that they receive on a daily basis. We will always remember our trip to Granada and cherish it.
The guide at the Alhambra was passionate about his job and truly provided us with a wonderful tour.
The guide for the Julie tour company spoke in 4 different languages which was amazing but also took a bit of focus because he had lots of information.
The Julie Tour company did not contact us to tell we where to meet and what time to meet. We had to chase down the information plus the person did not speak English well. There was a big communication issue with them.
Excellent guide with great commentaries of the Alhambra and surroundings. Each of us was given a set of earphones and we are able to hear her commentary and instruction. There was ample time to wander on our own since we did not subscribe to lunch.
