El tours es lindo si vas de día. Se aprecia absolutamente todo ! Las vistas son espectaculares. De noche hay poca visión en muchas cosas. Si tenes la posibilidad de hacer una visita con un guía privado y no grupal, vas más rapido y te cuentan algún que otro secreto, que en grupo no se puede, porq tiene que ser bien rápida la visita...

Excelente tour!

El precio del tour fue muy, muy elevado, prácticamente privativo y no cualquiera estaría dispuesto a pagarlo (ahora bien, no se si los operadores locales manejan directamente estos precios), pero no tenía otra opción si quería entrar a los palacios nazaríes en mi fecha... pues bueno, después del tour, creo que ha valido muchísimo la pena. Mi guía, Manuel, me transmitió muchos detalles sobre la historia de la Alhambra y sobre Granada en general, vimos detalles en los que tal vez no nos hubiéramos detenido en un grupo e íbamos a buen paso. Al final ha sido un recorrido de 3 horas y media que ha pasado volando. Creo que el gran valor del tour está en poder comprender a través de la arquitectura un poco sobre la cosmovisión árabe y la cristiana. Me voy muy agradecida con Manuel.

Die Alhambra ist der Hammer, die Individual-Führung mit Chus ebenso.

Ein Erlebnis der ganz besonderen Art. Chus hat uns mir ihrer Begeisterung für ihre Stadt Granada, die Alhambra, die Geschichte, die Kunst, die Gärten regel- recht angesteckt. Ganz individuell hat sie uns auf viele versteckte und monumentale Dinge in der Architektur und Kunst aufmerksam gemacht, mit Geschichte und Geschichten verflochten, manche Überraschung präsentiert... In sehr gutem Deutsch und mit Herzenswärme konnten wir trotz Kälte das tolle Erlebnis genießen. Persönliche Tipps (z.B. für ein tolles Restaurant) gab es zusätzlich. Dieses Erlebnis empfehlen wir sehr gerne weiter. Eine Bitte an die Agentur haben wir: Bitte den Treffpunkt im Plan genau einzeichnen. Der Haupteingang ist nicht oder schlecht ausgeschildert und war auch in meinem Reiseführer nicht drin. Ortsunkundig muss man sich durchfragen. Die Alhmbra ist riesig und es ist schade, wenn man unter Zeitdruck kommt. Wir hatten zum Glück eine geduldige Reiseleiterin.
