Great guide!

In a move of desperation, we booked a Spanish language tour because all the English tours were booked. We needn't have worried--both tours were bilingual in both Spanish and English. The guide was great but of course the problem was the other tourists in the group. If you are in a group tour, please don't jostle to get to the front of the line and please don't stop suddenly to take pictures as the group is moving.

Very interesting tour, well organized and led by an excellent guide

Very interesting tour, well organized and led by an excellent guide, whose name - unfortunately - I don’t remember. I do remember, though, that she guided the visit in two languages, and her English was very good. Whatever I shall say about the Alhambra complex will never suffice to describe its beauty. My wife and I were really impressed by its architecture, the gardens, the water works, the artwork, everything. It was definitely something we would not want to miss. Highly recommended, and absolutely worth a visit to Granada.

Absolutely breathtaking and made 100x better by our tour guide Angel

Angel was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and made the experience so much better. He made us feel like we were in the Alhambra back in 1300. He cared so much about teaching us and educating us on the palace. DO NOT short yourself and do the Alhambra alone. Book a tour guide, you won’t reget it.
