Our tour leader, Annabelle, was great at getting us all to where we needed to be. The tour guide in the Alhambra, Joseph, had an incredible knowledge of the place and made sure we got pictures from every site during the 4 hour tour. He was so kind and made us realize the incredible knowledge of the people who built the sultan's palace. The patterns and craftsmanship in the whole building are unbelievable. We just wished the King hadn't removed one to build his palace. He never came back after his long honeymoon.
Visit to Al Hambra was memorable.
I was very disappointed that despite paying for a sightseeing tour by train the tour guide was unable to provide us that opportunity. Effectively we paid for a service that we did not receive
An excellent day trip. Informative guides, both on the coach and at the Alhambra Palace and gardens. If I had a criticism it would be over the number of times we had coach stops. One on the way to Granada, one in Granada before we visited the Alhambra Palace and a further stop in Granada after the visit to the Alhambra. We also had a short stop on the way beack from Granada to Malaga.
It had been our dream to someday see the Alhambra Palace and that was fully met. The guides were great and we were captivated by the beautiful gardens, water features, and intricate stonework. We also enjoyed walking around the old city and enjoying some pastry and shopping. One suggestion though is to provide everyone with maps of the central city. Also, we did not understand until after the trip that Ferdinand and Isabella are buried in a chapel in Granada. Either our guide didn't mention that or we missed hearing it.
Great tour. Pick up in Malaga is easy if you stand right on the corner of the bank near bus stop 11 and look for the Julia bus. It stops at the corner not actually at the bus stop itself. However you can see it rounding the plaza.There is no guide waiting. When the bus arrives guide gets off.
Exceeded our expectations. A fascinating tour and a do not miss while traveling through Andalusia.
Excellent trip and very good guides. Your Malaga pick up point could be improved!!
We organized and the tour director very managable. Got to see almost everything ayt the palace. Would definitely recommend.
The tour guide from Granada and Alhambra is fantastic. There wasn't a single moment silent, she was explaining and sharing every interesting information about Alhambra.
The guide that picked us up from Malaga is rather arrogant and rude. The bus was twenty-minutes late and she did not apologize. I was suppose to go on another trip with them the following day to Tangier; The guide informed me about the cancellation and again there is no apology.
We loved this day. Great guide and good amount of free time. Alhambra fantastic.
Everything went smoothly, from pickup to final dropoff.
Our bus guide and city guide Paco was witty and funny (my wife and I were certainly entertained. He was knowledgeable beyond the script, and can offer interesting historical anecdotes from surprise questions from the group. Our Alhambra guide Jose was engaging, and deftly navigated the group through the beautiful maze of the Alhambra, while giving everyone enough time to snap their photos. The tour plan was well-designed, giving everyone enough tour time to get the best value, and enough personal time to go through their own interests city. We were back in Malaga early enough for an early tapas dinner! This tour is a great way to see the great Alhambra and Granada without having to worry about the logistics of getting there and how to efficiently go through these places, awesome value for money!
Very well run tour. So much to see and tour guides were very knowledgeable.
This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Spain. The timing of the tour and the free time in the city of Granada perfect. Our on site guide Oscar was wonderful. He had an easy going personality, paced the tour as such to allow time for both questions and photos and was very knowledgeable about the fascinating history of the Alhambra. I can't imagine doing a site of this magnitude and historical breath with only an audio-guide. You would probably leave with more questions than answers.
Overall, this day trip went really well. Since we were based in Malaga, we were the last to be picked up and didn't have to ride the bus all day. Our guide was very friendly and personal and told us lots of interesting facts while we were driving there. At the Alhambra, our guide was also very friendly and knowledgeable. She had been a guide for fourteen years and was from Granada so you could tell she was emotionally connected. It was a great trip and an easy way to see an incredible part of Spanish history.
