Had a delayed start to the trip because of issues with the bus. They were over 2 hours late picking us up. So we didn’t get to spend more time in Albaicín. But definitely worth seeing the Alhambra. I hope the travel company learns from this mistake. I felt bad for our tour guide María Teresa she was greeted with some disgruntled people but was very nice. She still had a very positive attitude with all the things that went wrong. It was an off day but we still made the most of what we had. I would still recommend them.

visit a little long with few elements to see nevertheless it is a thing to do it tells the history of the civil war very good guide although too bad the explanations are not in French only possible in Spanish

exotic, very pleasant and complete guide with rich explanations. bring a small jacket because there is a lot of cool wind. guide speaking perfect French 😁

Professional, accommodating and friendly guide who gave us very clear and interesting explanations throughout the excursion

Extremely well organized tour with knowledgeable guides
