    Our tour guide did a wonderful job of introducing us to the historical neighborhoods of Albaicin (Muslim area) and Saromonte (gypsy area) in Granada. He shared the colorful history of Granada as we walked the narrow streets of Granada. The guide had great suggestions for delicious tapas and drinks as well as a flamenco show at La Arborea. The performance took place in a small venue, but was perfect for truly enjoying the talented performers up close.

    Juana our guide, was well informed and learned a lot from her tour.

    I’m glad that we were able to experience this walking tour. Our guide, Juana knew so much that I felt like I was in a class room. I’m glad she was our guide. It helped us understand the history of the Alhambra, since we were touring the sight the following day. Since I’m a fan of Flamenco , this tour also helped me learn more of its origin and the gypsies way of life. Juana went into full details of all she spoke of and left out no detail. Thank you.

    Tour was fascinating, informative, and a really good orientation to two of the most important neighborhoods in Granada. There was more climbing up and down hills than we anticipated--we were out of breath several times and lagging a little bit behind the main group. Our tour guide was not quite loud enough for this size group, so we missed some of the narrative. We noticed that many other tour groups used sound systems with ear phones and that would have been helpful.
