What You Can Expect

Historical Granada Sightseeing Tour

Granada Cathedral

Your tour begins by visiting the Royal Chapel commissioned by the Catholic Monarchs and built in flamboyant Gothic style. Here you will find the mausoleums of Isabel and Ferdinand and their children Phillip "The Beautiful" and Joan "The Mad". The cathedral stands next to the chapel and is considered as the first renaissance church in Spain.

Continue along Gran Via passing the Gardens of Triunfo and Hospital Real, to reach the old Moorish Quarter of the Albaycin where you can wander the narrow streets before reaching the Mirador de San Nicholas. From here, you can experience the beauty of the Alhambra, Granada and the Sierra Nevada, before enjoying a refreshment at a local café.

Victor was on time picking us up. He was a very personable and knowledgeable guide, who was passionate about his city. We would highly recommend him. There was a wide variety of historical sites all of which added tremendous value to our stay. Victor even took time out to recommend and point out restaurants and other points of interest.

This was an excellent tour as to our great surprise we were the only couple booked on it so we had the undivided attention of the tour guide, who answered all our questions, and also of the courteous car driver who picked us up at our hotel as arranged. Thank you for not cancelling our booking because of poor takeup! We learnt a lot and as it was our last day in Granada, we had had time to think of plenty to ask.

It was well organized. The bus pickup us up on time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and information delivered in a pleasant way - not too much details and many dates.

Wow! This tour convinced me that your company is superb! I realized when we arrived at our hotel, minutes before the tour was scheduled to begin, that I had not confirmed the tour in advance. I frantically tried to reach the tour operators, to no avail, when our driver suddenly appeared ready to take us to our destination! We learned more about Granada in this four-hour late afternoon tour than we learned in the remaining 36 hours of our stay! Not only were the cathedral and monastery beautiful, but the history imparted to us has piqued my curiosity to learn much more about Ferdinand and Isabella and the Christian "conquest" of the Muslims. And, the old world charm of the Muslim quarter is indescribable. This section of town is "off the beaten path" and we would never have been aware of its existence had it not been included on this tour.
