This trip was amazing. The bus ride was pleasant, the tour was absolutely outstanding. Alhambra is a treasure.
Granada- Alhambra gets 5 star. The place is Just Out of the World. So well kept from the gardens to the Castle to the little city. If I could just spend 2-3 days in this town- It sure takes you back in time.
As for the tour guide- She was just too abrupt. I would suggest the Tour Guide gets some training to keep the passengers a little more excited .
Overall well organised - hotel pick up and drop off taken care in a timely manner as well.
Our bus guide Petra was FABULOUS, She prepared us for our tour of the area and the Alhambra very well. The place she chose for our bus breakfast break was perfect. Her tour of the optional walking tour of the old area of Granada was one of the best. Our area for lunch could not have been better, The local guide that we had for the Alhambra, itself was a wonderful Spanish gentleman. His love of his country and the Alhambra was delightful. This was one of the best tours I have taken
Day was very busy but well managed. The Alhambra Palace was sensational and it is well worth the tour as our entrance and guide was all organised.There were people who had queued all morning and who were unable to get in due to limited tickets so you need to do the palace in a tour like this. The walking tour is a must - great chance to see in a short amount of time the old city and learn a bit about it as well. Our guide and bus driver were very helpful. This is a long day but it is an excellent way to see Granada and the Palace form Seville.
This was a very long day,and it was worth every minute. Our tour guide,Petra was wonderful!! She was very knowledgeable and took care to make the day interesting and comfortable for all. There is a huge amount of walking,so wear comfortable shoes and be prepared. It was an incredible experience!!
amazing trip, alhambra was beautiful this is the second time i visit al hambra and u cant seems to have enough of it.
Petra and Manuel were a great guide/driver team. Enrique was our local guide at the site. There were a number of comments about this being a long and exhausting trip, but we did not find that to be true. There was great care taken for each person's comfort and a nice combination of education and cultural appreciation softened with humor. Petra even made a wonderful suggestion for lunch which we appreciated. This was a stress-free way to make the trip between cities and learn a bit along the way.
I highly recommend this tour.
Although it was a very long day, if you are pressed for time and only have one day to see the Alhambra from Seville, do it.
It was very well organised , and we learnt so much more than if we had gone independently.
Our guide of the Alhambra was amazingly knowledgable about all the history, architecture etc etc.
The walking tour of the Albayzin area was worth doing as well.
It was a really good day.
Very well organized. Everything went off according to plan. Petra our guide on the bus, and through the Albacyn, was very good about the nuances and little side streets to see some nice gardens and houses through the neighborhood. Felipe our guide through the Alhambra was terrific in explaining details that would otherwise go unnoticed. Well worth the trip!
The Overall Tour was very good. The guides were very nice and accommodating. We took a tour for both Alhambra and Albycin. Alhambra is very good if you are into history and architecture but we personally enjoyed the Albycin tour more. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested.
Having so many people told me not to miss out Granada if I were in Andalusia, I have to go there, but for transportation concerns, I stayed in Seville. I probably should leave Granada more time if I had some, but unfortunately for me, I've only got one day, and I decided to take an one day tour.
Since it's 3 hour away, we had to start off really early, and if you have already adjust yourself to the southern spain life style, late dinner and party hard , it's a bit challenging to get up early in the morning, but trust me, it's all worth it.
The tour itself is so well organized, that they let you rest on the bus in the morning and get you to have breakfast on its way, and skip the queue for tickets. The tour guide is quite knowledgeable about seville and Granada, we got to know a lot details about their life, those are not easy to know since I don't speak spanish and no way to easily start a conversation in a bar.
Overall the tour is great, Granada is a must when you are in southern spain.
This was an awesome tour. It's a long day from Seville, but the Alhambra is well worth it. My suggestion is to skip the walking tour and explore Granada center on your own. We found a terrific restaurant, Bodegas Castaneda, that was recommended by our Lonely Planet guidebook. The place offered a wonderful tapas sampler filled with variations of pork and traditional tapas.
Very well done overall. Sylvie and Enriques both did an excellent job! Thanks
Trip from Seville to Granada return was long but worth the trip if you don't want to stay in Granada. Alot was backed into the day including Generalife, Nazrid Palace and an afternoon tour of the Albaycin area. Tour guide Monica was extremely helpful and driver was very skilled, smooth driver. Travellers used time on bus to snooze.
Sylvia was a great guide and fun and informative and made the trip to and from Seville interesting. The tour was excellent with a new vehicle, a very careful driver and made it so easy to really appreciate the Alhambra without any worries. I would definitely recommend the walking tour for the few extra euros. Wear good walking shoes.. you will need them !
Had a winderdul time on this day trio. Albaicin walking tour is a must do and the Alhambra is amazing. So worth it to have a 'skip the line' ticket.
Excellent organisation, perfect timing and guides kind and competent.
It was worth the trip and our guide, Silvia, was great -- I learned a lot of things from her and she was very pleasant and nice throughout the long day.
Antonio and Monika were excellent tour guides. We learned a lot and saw the most amazing sites. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in experiencing a wonderful trip.
