We had a brilliant day in Granada and Alhambra. The whole trip was well organised and we really enjoyed it. Alhambra is stunning, and I'd recommend it to anyone. To get to go to Granada was an added bonus. It really took the stress out of the day not to worry about how to get there or parking etc. Our guide was informative and gave us lots of information about the area and the history. The Alhambra guide was equally knowledgeable, and passionate about the place.

All round successful tour! Very well organized and everything on time. The guides were extremely friendly and provided all the information needed without being intrusive. We were informed about the process from the outset, which was then implemented in exactly the same way. First visit of Granada, then the breathtaking Alhambra. Be sure to book the Nasrid Palaces! Unforgettable and really a dream from 1001 Nights! The entire tour is highly recommended!

Absolutely phenomenal, phenomenal and beautiful Alhambra, a must see! When it comes to walking around the city, there is actually only the Cathedral to see. Apart from that, there is not much to see. The guide spoke average English, and besides, he was talking about something when not everyone had approached yet and you couldn't hear anything. Instead of exploring the city, I'd rather spend more time at the Alhambra. I did not like the poor program and the high price of the trip.
