Granada is filled with rich history, and this tour brought to life key events and figures that I'd learned of back in my high school history class. Victor is a great guide, able to keep your attention with great storytelling and humor. This tour covers a lot of ground and is a great way to be introduced to this beautiful city.

Really went to the heart of the old neighborhood and our guide was not only knowledgeable but showed the right appreciation and reverence for the culture and people who lived there for so many centuries.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This was an excellent tour as to our great surprise we were the only couple booked on it so we had the undivided attention of the tour guide, who answered all our questions, and also of the courteous car driver who picked us up at our hotel as arranged. Thank you for not cancelling our booking because of poor takeup! We learnt a lot and as it was our last day in Granada, we had had time to think of plenty to ask.
