What People Are Saying About Granada

A good choice for a day visit to Granada

As we were unable to pre purchase any tickets online from Australia for the Alhambra, an organised tour was our only option for our one day visit to beautiful Granada. We were extremely happy with this choice. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and maintained a good pace that allowed the entire group to follow. The Alhambra is spread over a very large area and visits to each place were well planned given that the crowds can be quite thick at times. At the end of the 3 hour tour we were back at our starting point and free to wander at our leisure.

Perfect way to see Alhambra & Generalife

Great tour, easy pace, early start but beats the queues and the hottest part of the day.
