Overall rating

The tour was as good as it gets. Our guide Eva was from Granada and fiercely proud of it. She was engaging, extremely knowledgeable, with a deep love of her heritage, but remained funny and entertaining at the same time. Also, considering the heat, she demonstrated boundless energy. I wonder if us tourists were not a bit disappointing to her. The tour lasted over three hours and was fascinating from start to finish. I would book again tomorrow!

The Audioguide point was a bit tricky to find when coming from Alhambra car parking place above the area… but once you have it, the whole Alhambra area is yours. I’m just wondering how one can achieve to make it within 2-3 hours! It took us 7 hours… but so magnificent and fully worth the money.

There is a lot to see so make sure you have sensible shoes and a water bottle. There are plenty of water refill stations

Excellent guides. Very knowledgeable and passionate. Right length of time spent at Alhambra Palace.

This trolley was a fantastic and inexpensive way to tour the city of Granada!
