    Felipe was a great guide! He gave us exactly the right amount of information plus some funny/interesting details - so none got bored. There was plenty of time for questions and pictures as well a 20 minute break to rest in the shadows and get ice cream (or else). Thank you!

    I enjoyed this as our guide Gustavo A. was knowledgeable and pleasant. He shared interesting facts and best spots for photos. The tour started on time and they gave out individual audio sets so that you can hear the guide clearly regardless of where you stand in the group. I would recommend this but suggest to do it earlier than 10am as it gets really hot towards the end of the tour which is exposed to the elements.

    Our guide, Carlos Moreno de la Fuente, has everything a self-respecting operator should have. Our group consisted of 8 people including two children; scorching heat; tour from 11.00 to 14.00. Despite the climatic conditions, the three hours flew by as Carlos, a lover of art and his work, involved everyone with the history of the Alhambra, with many nice digrssioni that also entertained the children. It is thanks to people like him that we fall in love with history, sculpture, painting. In short, art in general !!! Excellent Italian, great communication skills, great storyteller (in a good way) and, above all, he gave us a wonderful experience !!!
