There were no issues for this tour. The negatives simply outweighed the positives. Our guide for our drive acted like she didn't want to be with us at all and was not prepared for the trip. She was nice but spent most of the drive there and back conversing with the drive in Spanish. The guide at the Alhambra rushed us through the Alhambra, leaving no time for pictures or exploration. The history that was shared is nothing special or unique - everything is readily available online. One thing to know - the Alhambra is not particularly spectacular. It was bombed to pieces and what's left now is slowly being restored, just not to its full glory. Also, there are many photos of the Alhambra that are online that we didn't get to see on our tour... I'm thinking we didn't get close to the full experience of this place. Choose a different tour... this one is not worth the price.

We enjoyed it very much. The bus ride was relaxing and the guide provided a good bit of information as we rode past various areas, though we had some trouble understanding her English due to her strong Spanish accent. At Alhambra, we did not have to wait to get in. Our guide at Alhambra was fantastic and it is a beautiful and interesting place. Great trip.

A well organised tour starting very early in the morning with a hotel pickup and a long drive to Granada. the drive was enjoyable as we saw the lazy town wake up on a chilly winter morning and sights were lovely. the town of Granada is very pretty and we met our English speaking guide there. The group wasn't too small and hence we were given earphones so we could hear Rafa our guide loud and clear. It was an interesting tour. The Castle, gardens and town is beautiful. we were then given time to walk round the town and experience the tapas and other delicacies of the land. Lovely trip!

The Alhambra is a must see on your visit to Spain! Pictures usually do not do it justice. It's one of those things in life that you have to see for yourself and take in all the beauty and history. Our bus tour guide was very informative and helpful. We left out from Seville to Granada and she talked to us about the history of the towns we passed on the way. Once we got to the Alhambra, we had a different tour guide to take us around the palace and grounds. He was very informative and well educated on the history of Alhambra. Before we had our tour of Alhambra we stopped in Granada to have lunch and walk around town. We happened upon an amazing tapas restaurant called El Conde. You have to stop here for lunch if you go on this trip!

We booked our trip to Spain somewhat last minute and by the time we started looking into tickets for the Alhambra individual tickets were sold out. This led us to look into guided tour options. I think its best to review this experience in two parts

Part one: Hotel pick-up/free time in Granada/drop-off Our pick-up and drop-off were organized by a group called VisiTours and they really could use a lot of work. We were asked to meet at 7:45 at a hotel near ours, my experience with all my prior guided tours has been that the tour company is present well before the meeting time and so when we arrived at 7:45 AM we saw another couple milling about. We waited for a few minutes but got worried that perhaps we had missed our bus and so we approached this couple and found they were waiting for the same tour. Our bus eventually showed up about 12 minutes late which I think is a lot especially given how much we're paying and that we had no way of knowing if they were on their way. It look about 90 minutes to pick everyone up from their hotel time that eventually took away from our ability to see the town of Granada. Seville is a small town and it would be much more practical to ask guests to meet in 1 or 2 central locations. As I already alluded to because of the tardiness of our tour company and the inefficient hotel pick-up process we got very limited time to see Granada. Our tour guide, Belen, kept saying we have 90 minutes however we arrived in Granada at 12:20 and were asked to be back on the bus no later than 1:45 PM. Again, our whole group was very punctual but the tour bus and guides were 10 minutes late making us late to our next stop which was the Alhambra will review this experience next. Finally once we returned to Seville, after the very first stop, Belen proceeded to suggest it would be best if those of us at certain hotels towards the center of town thought about getting off early and getting a cab. It didn't seem like that was totally in our interest as about midway through dropoffs she got off the bus and said she was going to grab a couple beers and head home she left us in the care of a her friend who I'm not really sure was another tour guide or not. Overall this company seemed unprofessional for the price we paid. The bus was really nice but getting them to run the AC on a hot 90F degree plus! day seemed to be really difficult.

Alhambra tour: This was an excellent experience and the only reason why I give this tour a good rating. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful tour of the Alhambra. This is well worth the visit so despite poor experiences on the journey there and back it was still worth it.

Our tour was supposed to leave at 10:15 ad it didn't happen until more than one hour later. Passengers didn't have time to see anything in Granada as the tour offers because we have to be at the gardens at some specific time

The travel agency Viajes Boreal was very slow in letting us know the meeting time in Granada. The tour was uninteresting, packed with people and in several languages. We couldn't hear anything and were exhausted at the end of the tour. If we had been able to book a private tour, we definitely would have.
