William was a great guide both patient and very well informed.

William exceeded our expectations by far. His expertise and personal connection as a native of Granada truly brought to life the beauty of the Alhambra. He was very knowledgeable of its unique place and interesting circumstances in Spanish history. We so enjoyed our experience having William as our private tour guide that we would like to come back sometime.

Amazing experience

We had a fantastic day with our guide Alberto. So informative and very pleasant to spend our tour with. His knowledge of the Alhambra was outstanding. His love and appreciation of the history of Alhambra made our experience very special. Thank you so much Alberto for making our day so memorable.

Etwas teuer aber jeder Zeit wieder, weil es sich gelohnt hat.

Unser Führer (Juan) hat es verstanden uns in den Bann der Alhambra und den Palästen zu ziehen. Wir durften einige Erlebnisse geniessen die die grosse Masse nicht ansatzweise erlebt. Er hat die ganze Führung sehr geschickt aufgebaut und uns mit seinem Wissen ins Staunen gebracht und meiner Frau beinahe eine Träne entlockt.
