    Our tour in German with Carlos was super nice. There were only four of us and Carlos told us about the grounds of the Alhambra and the palaces with a lot of charm, wit and knowledge of history. Gorgeous and impressive! It was like a varied walk with a good friend!

    Albert was well informed and accommodating. He was especially knowledgeable about the plants throughout the Alhambra. Finding the meeting place needs better instructions as it was difficult to find. Also, while the use of headphones is important with a larger group so that they can hear the guide, guides need to be conscious to speak slowly so that what they are saying can be understood.

    Fantastic knowledgeable guide (Ruth) who really brought the Palaces to life. The tour covers a large area, but it was well paced over the 3 hours. We booked the tour for up to 20 people but there was only actually 4 of us for most of it so it felt very personal. Liked having the headphones so that you could hear everything the guide was saying yet still wander round and take photos.
