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.
The tour was amazing and one of the highlights of a spectacular trip to Spain! Sylvia was our bus guide and was terrific and Antonio our Alhambra guide and he was phenomenal. This is must do!!
Our tour to Albicin and Alhambra was fantastic. The bus driverJuan Jose and the bus guide Monica were friendly and helpful.Monika offered information through out the 3 hours bus ride about the area history which added interest to the long ride. The Alhambra tour was amazing! The place itself is incredibly beautiful, and our guide there, Ester, was very very knowledgable and made the place alive for us.
Great tour. It is amazing how much the beauty is reserved in Alhambra. The optional walk was unexpected colorful. Tour guide was very cheerful and explained things nicely.
I thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Granada. Our tour guide Petra was charming. We also had the best tour guide in Alhambra who knew every detail in the history.All in all the tour was awesome. Highly recommended!
This was a wonderful tour. Our guide, Sylvia, was superb, able to describe the various sites and well-versed in the history. She was most helpful, and presented throughout the day with an unwavering sense of humor despite the heat and the crush of tourists. This was a satisfying way to visit the Alhambra Palace. Only wish the return bus had not been delayed as a result of mechanical difficulties, which forced a change in our expected evening activities back in Seville.
The guides were very good and friendly, the sights were breathtaking, and we were given in depth information about the rich history. The Alhambra is not small, especially if you include the Gardens, and Albaicin, but we managed to cover everything in this full day tour. Those who prefer a slower pace and more time spent in this gorgeous city might want to consider more than a day tour, though.
Excellent trip. Great guide in Petra who not only spoke about the sights but a whole lot about life in Seville. She kept the entire group enthralled with her experiences. Trip is a great way to see one of the best monument in the world. Highly recommended
