Our tour guide was informative, entertaining, went at a good pace, plus was cute. Thanks for a great tour of the Alhambra!

This was, without doubt, one of the best tours of my holiday. We spent approx. 5 hours walking through the Alhambra, and gardens. On the day, our tour guide was excellent. She was extremely well versed in the history of Granada, the Alhambra/Gerenalife, and able to answer the many questions posed. Advance booking is essential, however, as I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone who wished to maximise the time spent in Granada.

Much better than expected. Not because of the Alhambra itself - but also because of the prompt and helpful nature of the guide and the other persons on duty for Granada vision.

one of the best days of my life. Gus out guide was fantastic and explained the the history of the alhahmbra in great depth. We were his family for three hours, no question went unanswered and he had a great sense of humour. Wear cool clothes and flat shoes as there is alot of walking. You get ear phones and a transmittor which means you dont have to crowd around your guide but can listen enjoy and take in the wonderful history of Granada in a relaxed manner. Highly recommended

We thorougly enjoyed our visit. The guided tour was informative and the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens are outstanding and "a must see".

Definitely the only way to see Alhambra. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and there is no way we would have seen as much or understood what we saw had we gone by ourselves.

Very good tour. Great that the group split into language groups and we didn't have to hear the same information in 4 different languages. Our guide put a lot of energy into giving us detailed information and showing us every corner of the Alhambra and gardens. 30 minutes free time in the middle of the tour was much appreciated as the pace was fast moving and the day very hot.

This tour is a must. I wouldn´t attempt to go to Alhambra without it. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about what he does. What a wonderful historical opportunity.

Well organized, with a well informed guide. Delivered what was promised. While more time is needed to thoroughly explore such a large collection of buildngs and gardens, this tour provides a very good overview of everything and a great first step for those who wish to explore on their own at a later time.

The tour was excellent. We were picked up on time at our hotel and taken to the Alhambra where we were divided into groups according to language. Our Dutch guide was brilliant. He made the whole place come alive and his knowledge of the history and culture of the place made for a most enjoyable visit.

Quite a long tour, but even the children were fascinated. Beautiful place and a very knowledgable tour guide made it extremely memorable.

The Alhambra is spectacular, of course, and it can be quite overwhelming without a good guide. Ours (Tiguan? Did not catch the spelling of his name.) was fantastic - he gave us detailed information about each area and added so much extra history and context. There is a LOT of walking, so make sure your shoes are comfortable. With so many people and so much ground to cover, this tour could have been a disaster - but it was extremely well organized and nicely delivered, and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Although the hotel pick-up didn't extend to those staying in the Albaicin the tour of the Alhambra and gardens was excellent. This was due in no small part to our guide Trinny who was just brilliant; experienced, knowledgable, informative and with a good sense of humour. Very well done to her.
