An excellent day trip from Granada if you don't have a car.
The pick up worked well in the morning and we had a good group of people of many languages. We were the only primary English speakers even though the tour was listed as English. The tour guide made sure to include us in everything, and it went well. We enjoyed the ham-factory tour as this was something we had never seen before. The lunch was huge and more food than we could eat, although it was a bit late (almost 2:30pm) for us. The views are great from these small towns, and it was an enjoyable day.
Excellent day trip - great value lots of interesting things to see and do.
Great day and interesting. Guide was very friendly and made the day
This was an excellent day trip. The tour guide was great with plenty of information. We saw so many of the towns and the lunch was fun. The driver was also great as the roads are very high up. More time in the towns would have been nice but overall a wonderful trip.
The tour was worth the money. Hotel pick up was efficient and well organised. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The mountains were just amazing and the white villages picturesque. I really recomment it.
A very touristy but extremely scenic drive high up into a fascinating area. Lovely guide, huge lunch of local food - overall excellent value. Though the trip was initially cancelled due to lack of numbers, efficient voice mail alerted us to changes, and the pick-up arrangements worked perfectly.
We visited several interesting sites and enjoyed the local lunch. Plenty of time to walk around and visit the towns on our own.
Beautiful villages. An informed guide. Great ham and wine tasting. Lunch was fairly greasy.
Professionally well done. If you do not have a car, this is more or less the only option to see some of the region, and the guide did a good job.
Informal, well organised, good and easy way to see this beautiful area without having to do the driving.
It was a super trip and I would thoroughly recommend others doing it. The food was beautifully presented when we had our lunch. The guide was knowledgeable, the driver of the bus very careful and the bus itself first class. As the scenery was so stunning it would have been great to have been able to stop and take some photos of the wonderful valleys and ravines. On the way to our lunch the toilet and coffee stop proved to be at a place that was closed - phoning ahead to check that it was open would have been a good idea. My group and I would liked to have had more information about how the hams are preserved rather than just having the food samples, nice as they were, and then being left to wander. As teachers information is what we like. The only part of the tour which we didn't rate was the waterfall of iron - that was a bit of a let down.
The region and it's histor were well presented. Tour could be much improved by a better choice of locations as the scenery here is pretty spectacular. It was unfortunate that all the best sights were only able to be glimpsed from the coach. In hindsight, a better option would have been to hire a car and have the freedom to focus on the region's true highlights.
I called to check in and was told it was cancelled. So, I'm waiting for the refund. A better business practice would be for the company to notify me that the trip was cancelled and that my payment has been refunded.
The coach was small but comfortable, the driver and the guide were both very good and attentive, and the lunch was generous. But overall I thought the trip was expensive for what it offered. Visits to villages were OK, but a walk in the Albaycin district of Granada offers no less stunning scenery. Our main disappointment was that the lunch - supposedly the highlight of the trip - was held in a dull room with no view, although there were plenty of restaurants with lovely views in the same village.
The day we took this trip was extremely cloudy, foggy and rainy. I suggest checking out the weather and if you don't expect sun, don't go. We were taken to several beautiful towns, but because it was very cold and wet, we didn't enjoy the scenery or the view.
