Violeta was terrific!! It was a great way to be immersed on the neighborhood, with narrows streets and histories that would be really hard to find and know. Just when we started the tour our bike had a chain broke, but she was really fast and nice to find help with the company… everything was great!

Both Yosin on the visit to the Albaicín and Sacromonte, and Belén on the visit to the Alhambra acted as wonderful hosts. They gave us a tour at a relaxed and pleasant pace. We had been to Granada on other occasions but choosing this guide service this time was a success. Thanks for everything!

We had Thomas as our guide and he was fantastic. We did the Segway tour and it was amazing how much we got to see. The entire experience was amazing and I would highly recommend. The entire family loved it.

La comida buenisima, personal super gentil y la emocion de escuchar los musicos y el baile phenomenal!!!

A really good way to see places and to plan future trips or visits.
