All was pretty much planned. I got picked up from a nearby hotel, they had separate guided tours for English and Spanish speaking people. Guides were knowledgeable and they had all tickets planned out. Granada is amazing, ah the palaces and the gardens with Arabic calligraphy. It took my heart away. I think Arab Bath is the must for anyone who is planning to visit Granada. They had hot, warm and cold pools with aromatic therapy. Sauna and massage with mint tea. It was magical. I am glad that I bought this tour. I loved it!
El tour fue fabuloso, el guia en la alhambra muy bien documentado y amable, algo demorado la recogida de otros pasajeros pero bien al final. Sobre los banos arabes, falta mas informacion al turista donde ir exactamente, pues dicen el la plaza nueva, otro en la plaza Sta Ana y al final era cerca de esto pero no alli propiamente.
I immensely enjoyed my bath and massage. I took a star off my rating because my reception area experience was not positive. The waiting area was very small and limited to only 2 seatings. Customer-traffic of those leaving-coming was poorly managed and bottle-neck in heat-humidity became so unpleasant.
The tour to the Alhambra was excellent with an outstanding tour guide, Enrique. Was disappointed that the Arab Bath tour was not included in the bus tour as we had to walk to this from our hotel. Well worth the effort in the heat of Granada in the summer.
The bath portion of this trip was absolutely amazing and I'd do it every day of the trip if I could. It was perfect for the end of the trip. The alhambra day portion, was very informative although a bit long and boring at parts.
This tour was great, very informative. The baths and the massage were too short though.
The trip was very good The guide was brilliant with a lot of experience
The guide was very good and informative and the bath is a great experience. However, I feel it's a little pricey, especially if you compare it to the Seville-Cordoba day trip which I think is excellent value.
The Alhambra was of course lovely. The history offered by the tour guide was easily understandable and interesting. The only problem was that we visited on the last day of the Feria a carnival outside of town and for that reason many of the workers had called in sick. Thus, the crowds were not properly controlled and the guide was hard to hear at times. The Hammam baths were amazing. We packed our bathing suits at the last minute. Good thing because the whole experience involved dipping in underground pools of various temperatures. Lovely mint tea and a mediocre massage were to follow. This was an "outside the comfort zone" experience and very worthwhile.
The Alhambra is fabulous and our guide Robert made it all the more so he is friendly, informative and entertaining. Bravo! The Arab Baths were fun and evocative. Walking directions from our morning tour were minimal. Our hotel staff kindly resolve the hotel pick up at last minute. The volcanic ash travel crisis is to be blamed, I'm told. Still...
Fantastic tour, the Alhambra was amazing. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. We had a sociologist on the tour who bombarded the tour guide with questions, and the tour guide knew all the answers. Hotel pickup and dropoff were great, but the tour just kind of ended abruptly with no real closure. Arab baths were OK, nothing special.
Nice trip, good English, but the historical information shown only from the Spanish side without any respect to the Muslim Arab side. The Spanish killed and forced about 2 million Arabs to change their religion to Christianity after they conquered Granada.
Overall, it was excellent. Our guide at the Alhambra was great. However, the actual group for the tour was too large 30 people. The arab bath was nice for the difference and price and the massage was great. It was something very nice to do after a day of walking the Alhambra.
Pick up for the tour was punctual, although once we were at the starting point, we had to wait without much idea of when we were due to start the tour. We had a mixed party of German and British; the majority were German and our guide was much more orientated towards her German guests who she spoke to for longer and with overtly more affection! At times she was very difficult to hear and understand and (in English) rather repetitive. Despite the indication in our itinerary, the guide knew nothing about a voucher or a map for the Arab Bath part of the tour and initially was very unhelpful, shrugging her shoulders and saying it was nothing to do with her. Happily the recepitionist at the Parador was most helpful in confriming the details on the phone with the local agent and all went smoothly in the end.. Concerns about locating the Arab bath were ill-founded. It is very well signposted. The Alhambra was of course splendid: it was a shame that our guide did not recommend taking time to go into the Alcazba, which she did not take us into; by the time we got back there later it was too late to enter. The Arab bath was fun and worth the time and money, but this is not, I believe, an historic building. Overall a trip not to be missed, and just hope for a better guide!
