We really enjoyed this tour - our guide was very knowledgeable and obviously loves talking about Las Alpujarras. Beautiful vistas and scenes around every curve. I would have been white-knuckled but our expert driver allowed us to enjoy the scenery. Learned a lot about the history and topography of the area. A really good lunch at a rural hotel. Many brief stops for viewing spots or to see some mineral springs, deep ravines, and old ruins. Visited 3 of the 29 hill towns but drove through several others- how they ever built in some of those locations defies gravity. Margaret and Roger

This tour was amazing. The excellent tour guide Alba, who was so informative as to the history and culture of the area, made this trip one to remember. You visit three villages in the foot hills of the Sierra Nevada. Panoramic views are plentiful. If you suffer from vertigo this trip will cure you.

We had a fantastic day exploring the stunning mountain villages that surround Granada! Our guide, Antonio, masterfully switched between English and Spanish the entire day to make sure all tour participants understood every component of the tour. One of the smoothest bilingual tours I've ever been on! It is a great balance of guided exploration and free time throughout the day. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the Alpujarras for the day--it is worth the trip!

Excellent day with Antonio our guide who was very helpful, always smiling and full of information. I would have liked a couple of stops to photo the amazing vistas. Nonetheless a good day touring to a remote and spectacular area.

We loved this tour! It was a great break from the hustle and bustle of town. Antonio, our guide, was fun, well informed and spoke excellent English. We made plenty of interesting stops for photo ops beautiful scenery and hill towns and sightseeing along the way. The high point was a lovely lunch which gave us an opportunity to talk with other guests about their native countries and travels in Spain.

The guide was excellent and the quality of the places visited outstanding. Loved the ham factory and the lunch. My husband brought along a small scooter and Michael was super in accommodating his needs. We have some fantastic pictures and enjoyed the others on the tour. Just five of us in a new van was very relaxing.

An excellent day trip from Granada if you don't have a car.
The pick up worked well in the morning and we had a good group of people of many languages. We were the only primary English speakers even though the tour was listed as English. The tour guide made sure to include us in everything, and it went well. We enjoyed the ham-factory tour as this was something we had never seen before. The lunch was huge and more food than we could eat, although it was a bit late (almost 2:30pm) for us. The views are great from these small towns, and it was an enjoyable day.
