I was absolutely blown away by the level of professionalism of the singer, dancers and guitarist. The raw passion they exuded during the performance was incredible! I was reluctant to attend, as I thought it would be catering for tourists, and I'm not a huge fan of dance in general, but my wife insisted, and I'm glad she did. Without exaggeration, it was the best musical performance I have ever seen, and I worked in the music business for years, and have seen hundreds of performances by very famous artists. No joke, there were tears in my eyes at the end of the performance - it was a very emotional experience, and I would recommend it to everyone visiting Granada without reservation.

Is a MUST go attraction. The view there is stunning and the properties there are amazing. We are lucky to have Gosia as our guide. She is very good, friendly and professional. She provides us very details information, with all the background and history. Also, her time management is good, and we are able to walk thought the whole attraction without wasting any minute. She absolutely enhanced our visit, overall was a very good experience.

The Alhambra is a bucket list visit - and I think it needs an expert guide to bring it to life. Alba did just that and so much more. Over the course of our four hour visit (you need at least that much time) she provided an endless stream of the historical narrative while pointing out essential details. She brought us all to a new level of understanding of this incredible place - if you can get her as your guide, consider yourself lucky

The show was good. The performers were excellent, we enjoyed their performance. Although the place is quite small for the number of customers. Also make sure to ask about your assigned seat because if you book online there aren’t seat number but for some they have, so to avoid transferring from one seag to the other ask for a seat number upon entering. The drinks are also good. Thank you.

We had a great day with Carlos! It was a wonderful experience to see what our ancestors built. He explained everything really well and provided us with well rounded insights into the history of the Al Hambra. Thanks Carlos!
