It is a great tour about Granada and its history. It gives you ideas about the city other than the main attraction Alhambra. I recommend this tour for the first day of your visit at Granada.

There were only two of us joining the tour, so it was like a private tour. Stephanie, our guide was excellent- very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Would highly recommend this tour
