It was a great and hassle free trip to Granada and the Alhambra. Zoraida, our guide, is very friendly, informative and cared for our well being. Even with a large group, the tour is well managed and on time. The drive is pleasant and the roads are the best. Scenery is composed mainly of olive plantations.

An incredible experience. Bus was very comfortable and guides were excellent at telling stories and history. This is definitely worth the long trek in my opinion. The castle tour is a once in a lifetime experience. I think it should be on everyone's bucket list.

Great trip - packed a lot in a long day! The Alhambra tour was terrific - Carlos Fuentes was an excellent guide for our group. And Petra was a great overall guide.

The knowledge of the guides specially Alba at Alhambra was increíble. Learned a lot.
