Mohammed was the best guide we could ever have asked for. He was informed, friendly and patient. Our time with him was interesting and I wouldn't have missed this for anything. The Alhambra has a certain magic and charm to it like no other place, which was brought alive by Mohammed's passion for history and extensive knowledge of the site. This trip is well worth it. I strongly recommend you do it and enjoy the beautiful tranquil, verdant gardens and panoramic views alongside the magnificent Alhambra.

Wonderful experience. Our guide was great. Although this excursion cost a bit more...I was very happy I had paid the amount. We were able to stop when ever we wanted to rest or take photos. Our guide was very knowlegeable and she even recommended that after the tour we go to the Parador on site and sit on the terrace with a drink. We did. The terrace has a spectacular view of Generalife.

This was the best tour of my entire vacation. Our tour guide was wonderful. She spoke perfect English, was fun and was so intelligent.
She knew everything we questioned and taught us so much about the sites and culture. I highly recommend paying the extra amount for this private tour. It was well worth it!

The Alhambra is a must see destination. But of course, getting tickets can be a bit tricky. This was one of the few options I found which gave you access to the entire complex. Due to restrictions put in place by the location itself, they can't give you an exact start time until a week or so before your visit. But just as promised, the tour company contacted me ahead of time and gave me a time to meet. The guide, Mohammed, was on time and did an exceptional job showing us around as well as providing plenty of historical insight into what we were seeing. He even took pictures and gave us time at the end to do further exploration on our own. I'm so glad I chose this option for visiting the Alhambra. The tour couldn't have been any better.

We had a truly excellent 3-1/2-hour tour of the Alhambra, Spain's most well-known and awe-inspiring example of Islamic architecture, and of the Generalife, the summer place and refreshing gardens of the Nasrid rulers. While the palace-and-fortress complex speaks for itself, our visit was immensely enhanced by our tour guide, Patty. The wealth of information that she had at her fingertips was only exceeded in our appreciation by her outgoing and gracious manner throughout the tour. At times, it felt as though a good friend was showing us her new home. She was prompt and considerate, and she made our visit so worthwhile. The tour is not inexpensive but, for once, the results seemed worth the cost. We had experience with only one guide but, if Patty is representative of the guides available through this site, then we recommend this tour to all.

Not really knowing what to expect and having some confusion as to why we were not informed until the day before about our confirmed tour start time, don't panic, every tour start time hinges on when you can enter the Nasrid Palaces we were very impressed with our guide, Abu Bakr and felt that the cost of the private tour was well worth it. His knowledge of the history of the Alhambra from a Muslim perspective was extensive, his manner pleasant and engaging. Abu is a lover of history and it was evident from start to finish. As our tour progressed we came to realize what a truly unique and special place the Alhambra is and how what we experienced is likely a once in a lifetime event. Two things: if you go to Granada don't miss the Alhambra and when you're there look at it through the lens of your eyes and not that of a camera. It is the only way to truly see it.

Guide Mohammed N. was great. Highly recommended. He added significantly to our experience, appreciation and understanding of Granada and the history of Islamic empire in Europe. He was very good at setting a pace that allowed us to take in the Alhambra and the full scope of the tour without feeling rushed. He made this splurge on a private tour feel totally worthwhile.
