Never thought a walking tour would be this fun. Mar was exceptionally talented in this field and very patient with our neverending question about the historical events. She is the best and I would have happily asked to have her as our main and private tour guide for the AlHambra!
Tour is quite long for what it is. While I enjoyed the “history” lesson part, I just did not see much during the tour (other than a city street) to warrant all that walking through cobblestoned streets. If I did this again, I would take the bus or cab to the mirador San Nicholas to get the sunset view of Alhambra and walk to dinner then a flamenco show in the area.
Worth every penny! Be prepared to walk, flat shoes required, I did it in flip flops which were fine, but avoid heals at all costs! This provided stunning views of the Alhambra and surrounding area at sunset and our guide was knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting from start to finish.
The Granda evening walking tour is great way to get introduced to Granda and see some beautiful scenery. We really liked our guide Juan. He is very knowledgable and funny. It is quite a bit of walking up and down some hills, which we enjoyed. Granada has a fascinating history and is gorgeous in the evening. The views of the Alhambra at night are breathtaking.
Excellent tour and a great way to get oriented to the beautiful city of Granada!. Beatrice was a gem and made our evening walk through Sacromante and the Albaicin districts all the more special. The tour finishes at a local bar where we were served an excellent TAPAS and a drink. I would highly recommend this tour!!
We shared this tour with 2 others may I recommend that you wear flat shoes with grip as it takes you over very uneven and hilly surfaces. Our guide was amazing and took us firstly up to the top of Granada's Gypsy cave area which provided magnificent views over the valley below and the Alhambra. The tour started at 8pm and as we wound our way through this fascinating area learning about the history of why the gypsies chose to settle here and about their unique cave dwellings, we were able to capture the most magnificant dusk photo's of the Alhambra. We slowly walked through a maze of narrow alley ways which gradually lead us down the steep hills where at times the space just opened up to a little plaza full of locals meeting up for drinks and food or just chatting and various eateries. Our guide provided much local information about the area and Granada and its history as he had grown up here, he spoke excellent English and was happy to take photo's for us. The tour took a couple of hours and finished with us at the base of the the walls of Alhambra and the old part of the town at a local bar for Tapas and a drink. We all thoroughly enjoyed this and all sat and chatted for another hour including our host whom delighted us with stories of Granada. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to really experience the öld partof Granada and the gypsy area as to do this on your own you would indeed get lost and miss some of the best parts that only a local can show you. Though you do need a degree of fitness we are in our early and mid 60s and feel persons whom are unstable on their feet would not be able to do this tour safely.
Our guide was amazing and made the tour very enjoyable and feel this tour is a must do.
Excellent guide, Juan, who took time to help us put into perspective the inhabitants of the city and elaborate upon every question we asked he was very knowledgeable and clearly loves history. We truly enjoyed him and our time.
Out guide, Mar, speaks very good Engish she also has a great sense of humour. She obviously loves what she does and she is very knowledgeable and informative being a native of Granada, she kept us well entertained with first-hand knowledge and insight. We practically had a personal tour. We were able to take our time and enjoyed the walk we had no idea how far we actually walked. Overall, we had a fabulous time. Yes, you do need to be in good shape to do this walking tour - plenty of up and down steep slopes. But it will be the same if you are just walking around Albaicin and Scaromonte on your own. You won't have the same experience though. We highly recommend taking this tour. The tapa and drink at the end are just extras.
