Our tour guide Marta was very informative, knowledgable and able to answer any questions in connection with the history of Alhambra. I didn’t realise Alhambra is a city and even though I enjoyed the gardens, the architecture and the amazing history it was by the end quite tiring. Three and a half hours of walking later and I was desperate to get back to my hotel and rest. That being said this tour is a must when visiting Granada so make sure you have comfortable footwear !!!
Alhambra itself was very interesting. Our groups disappoint was a result of the listening equipment provided. It was very directional resulting in our missing a great deal of the information being provided by our guide. Leaving us with the impression we would have been better renting an individual headset and foregoing the tour.
First of all our guide, Blanca, was great. She is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The details about the Alhambra history and architecture were super informative We first thought that 3,5 hours were too long for a visit but the place is so huge and interesting that it's the minimum time needed to enjoy fully the beauty of the place Once again a truly amazing visit!!!
When visiting the Alhambra, definitely do a tour, otherwise you'd miss 80 of what the structure is trying to convey to you. Our guide, Marta who was amazing by the way told us that Alhambra has been referred to as a book with gardens. And she did an excellent job of spelling out the symbolism, very clear and chronological run down of events to place everything in context, and dished out some awesome facts about the place. Would highly recommend!
