What People Are Saying About Granada

Fascinating experience made possible by a wonderful tour guide Sabina!

Awesome history and original features in all the palaces, gardens and other venues. A big part of any such tour is the guide's knowledge and presentation. Sabina was excellent.

My guide was kind, knowledgable, and deserves a raise

I had an outstanding time touring the Alhambra with my English-speaking guide (whose name unfortunately escapes me). I would pay more than $40 to have another tour experience with her. Also, the company is communicative and ethical. Finally, skipping lines at major sites is well worth the admission.

Ana made the Alhambra ten times more exciting!

We are so glad we booked this guided tour. Not only did it do away with worrying about ticket purchases/printing, but we would not have enjoyed the Alhambra as much as we did if it weren't for Ana's narration and stories. She was very good and also very respectful. Thank you, Ana!
