Amazing tour!!!! If you are in Granada this is a must. Our tour guide, Lorena was fantastic. She geared the tour to our particular interests (art, architecture, history), gave us excellent restaurant recommendations, and was extremely knowledgeable. I have a degree in history so I asked a lot of questions and was fascinated by the response. This is my third time seeing Alhambra, and this tour blows all the others out of the water. If you want a tour of Alhambra that's a no worries experience, detailed, and avoids all crowds and queues, this is a must!!! It is well worth the extra cost.
This was a highlight of our many travels throughout Spain. The tourguide was so knowledgeable and interesting. She responded to all of our needs, even with the challenges we presented (three young kids, a sick parent, a history buff with a lot of questions). We loved it!
After 3 weeks touring the South of Spain, we came to realise that getting the most out of any attraction requires a guided tour.......in English. Alhambra is one of those attractions, which, to really appreciate it's history, one is better off listening to a guide who can give you all the information first hand. The passion and knowledge passed on by our guide Fernando, made this tour totally interesting and well worth the cost. Whilst in Australia, we tried to purchase tickets to Alhambra to do our own self guided tour, but discovered that our credit cards were not accepted. Booking tickets over the phone also didn't work as we spoke no Spanish and each time we called we got a recorded message in Spanish. Booking via Viator was very easy and we will seriously consider using Viator for other tours in the future.
Turek was very knowledgable and passionate about the Alhambra and was able to communicate both the information and his passion. It made the experience very informative and exciting. It was one of the highlights of our two-week visit to Spain.
Loved that tour the guid was friendly and she knew Toledo very well and the history about it, the car was clean and comfortable , and timing was good, definitely recommend that tour
I have just been telling my family how fantastic this tour was. It was a privilege to have Alberto guide us through the Alhambra with its rich and amazing history. This was our first visit to Spain and Alberto's knowledge and passion for his subject was enthralling. We had been to Madrid and Seville before Granada and seen and heard many wonderful things, but the Alhambra to us was the absolute high point of our holiday.
Our tour guide, Lorena, was very knowledgeable about Alhambra. She made the entire experience incredibly informative and interesting. We would had a wonderful tour with her and we have already recommended the tour to our friends that are traveling to Spain in July!
Our tour guide Alberto Rodriguez was on time and met us at the lobby of out hotel (the Alhambra Palace hotel) and spoke excellent English. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and passionate about the Alhambra. He provided a wealth of information on the Alhambra and the local scene. In addition he was very pleasant and professional.
A must-see wonder. The Alhambra and Generalife are a beautiful site to see, but to understand it's meaning and importance fully, I definitely recommend a guided tour. As we were a small group of friends we did it privately, that way we had a bit more flexibility to stop in one or other place for pictures etc. The guide was very knowleagable and gave us a very interesting overview not just about the Alhambra but about Granada as well. We learnt so much in such a short period of time! I would definitely visit the Alhambra again, and in the same way!
excellent tour with a private guide - enabled us to catch all the history and see a lot in a short period of time
Burtas was friendly and very knowledgable. He brought history to life and made the tour a once in a lifetime experience. He didn't rush and was thoroughly engaging. Great experience.
Our guide Gustavo was excellent. We met him at the parking #1 and were ready to start right away. He was very organized and willing to answer all of our questions. We had a great time at Alhambra. No lines, no hassles and very personal . We highly recommend this tour.
