What People Are Saying About Granada
My guide was absolutely superb, her English was pretty much perfect. The Alhambra itself was beautiful, having gone in the quiet season there were plenty of moments to be able to stop and take photos. Our guide also clued us in on some other important places to visit in Granada, all in all it was a wonderful experience. The only possible negative comment is that the audio equipment that lets you hear the guide does struggle at times when it is windy or you lag too far behind the group.
First time I have used this service but found it very easy. When I discovered that I could pick up my tickets the day before, the alternative was simply explained. Staff in Granada were very helpful giving clear advice on travel to the Alhambra. The actual visit was totally memorable.
Jaime and the whole crew were great! We had a blast and would surely do it again if given the opportunity.
The tour was well organised and informative. The tour was made hugely entertaining, informative and enjoyable as a direct consequence of the expert knowledge and information given to us by the tour leader, Sabina. Her overall knowledge was immense and she could answer every and all questions directed at her. She combined this knowledge with an excellent sense of humour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the magnificent Alhambra and gardens. The palace and gardens were every bit as good as we had been told. The weather was perfect and the guiding excellent.
