The tour was a little expensive. However, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and very good.

You can't go to Granada without seeing the Alhambra. The tour company's meeting point is up the hill and a set of steps from the main entrance and the guards there can point you in the right direction. Our guide was pleasant and had many tales as you would expect. He was pleasant and considerate. My last visit was 44 years ago and the gardens are vastly improved.
The best tour I have ever been on ! The Alhambra is enchanting but with the Guide we had - Gustavo , it came alive ! Our guide had extensive knowledge which he shared in an easy and enjoyable way , his demeanor was really professional yet warm and easy , he invited questions and frankly made what could have been a stodgy walk into an exhilarating , enjoyable experience. This trip was absolutely worth every penny and we could not recommend more highly. Our guide met us early , helped us find coffee it was before 8 ! and then took us on our tour. Thank you we hope to visit Granada again.
Blanca was great - her knowledge of history and the structure really made the visit worth every penny!
Well worth a private tour to find out about this stunning palace and gardens. No waiting in line to get tickets etc and would not have learned about the history
The tour was absolutely amazing, our tour guide was extremely well-informed and new the monument like the back of her hand! It was pleasure to listen to her and visit ! Highly recommend.
This was the most incredible way to tour the Alhambra! Our guide was so knowledgeable and vibrant! I would recommend this to everyone!
Excellent tour. Our tour guide Beatriz Arenas Ibarrondo was great. Spoke great English, knew the history was very knowledgeable, very friendly. Highly recommend.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and went at our pace. THANK YOU!!
We had a wonderfully informative and enjoyable tour. Our guide Bea was very well informed/well read, embraces the history and clearly loves the place. Her guiding is more than a job for Bea - this place and its rich history is a passion for her. We wish Bea well for the future.
Private tour of Alhambra was well worth the cost. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He welcomed all of our questions.
Excelent. The guide, Emilio, was at the hotel to pick us up on time. He is a very nice person with plenty of knowledge. He explained everythin and answered all the questions we made. Very good service.
Our tour guide Emilio, was very kind and answered all of our questions. He knew a lot about the place and adapted his schedule to ours. It was totally worth it, and I would happily repeat the experience.
Our guide was Carlos and he was outstanding. We are interested in a deeper history than what is normally given by a guide and he was perfect for us. Carlos has a degree in middle eastern and Islamic studies and also reads Arabic. He made the tour much more enjoyable and informative for us. A+
This tour was great! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We took our tour in the morning and this was a great time of day to be there as it wasn't super crowded yet. We really enjoyed seeing this beautiful area and learning about the history and culture. Having a tour guide gave the experience a personal touch and helped us to learn more as we went through the complex.
Our Guide was smart, knowledgeable and full of humour. He was respectful of our interests. We enjoyed the experience immensely
The Alhambra is magnificent and our tour was more enjoyable because of our excellent guide, Bianca. She had obviously studied the history of not only the Alhambra but the Moors in Andalucia and the reconquista and was able to provide historical facts, context, and little stories about the various players that really brought history alive. Bianca pointed out and explained the architecture, the intricacies of the decorations, and the symbolism. She was very enthusiastic and engaging and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
Somehow, we got the time for our tour confused and arrived over an hour late. Entrance times to the Alhambra are rigidly enforced, but somehow our guide Gus got us in, and gave us a great high-speed tour. Gus was very informative, spoke perfect English, dealt with our lateness calmly, and gave us a great tour.

Extremely interesting and fascinating tour. We could bypass all queues and even gain entry to restricted areas. It is worth investing in a guided tour in a small group. Very little if any English is spoken by the staff who will rattle off a litany in Spanish to your simplest of requests leaving you completely bewildered. On the other hand if your Spanish is good you have no worries. I was surprised at the lack of English in a world heritage site. Try and book early tours to avoid huge crowds and selfie stick wielding fellow tourists out to blind you!
Our tour was fantastic! We booked it simply because regular tickets for the Alhambra were sold out, but it was a great decision. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. She ended the tour and gave us time to revisit much of the complex on our own. Highly recommend.
