    We thought for a long time whether we should book a guided tour for our trip to the Alhambra or not. A few days earlier we were in Seville at the Alcázar and just used the audio guide there, which was great too. We then decided in Granada against the audio guide and for the guided tour and are absolutely happy with it! The Alhambra is so big and there are too many audio guide points that we could tell, so we are really happy that Rosa guided us so well and told us everything important. We would definitely recommend the tour to everyone including the Nasrid Palaces!

    It was easy to locate our guide and he was very personable and knew his stuff. He didn’t rush us and allowed time to absorb our surroundings, take pictures or visit the facilities. He made the Alhambra come to life. The Alhambra is beautiful, steeped in history and a must see. We would highly recommend this tour as it gives you so much more insight into the life and times.

    We really enjoyed our tour of the Alhambra, palaces and Generalife gardens - amazingly ornate architecture and design. Our tour guide Alberto was lively and provided an abundance of interesting information about the Alhambra and its history through the ages. This was my reason for visiting Granada and I was not disappointed! Tour was 3 hours (including short break) - time very well spent. I find in person guided tours much more interesting than audio only or just walking through sights on my own. This tour had ~20 people - Alberto was able to keep us together and moving at a good pace throughout the tour. Also provided eating recommendations in the area etc.
