As Australians (English speakers with little Spanish) we booked the tour knowing it was in Spanish. We couldn’t get an English tour in our timeframe. The experience was excellent and as much we didn’t understand a lot the guide tried at various opportunities to explain things in English (above what was expected) It was very much worth seeing these tunnels and we will read up more of the history. The intro video with English subtitles was very good to set the scene.

It was great to find this tour in English as we had read it was only available in Spanish. Our guide Virginia brought the experience to life with her enthusiasm and knowledge about the tunnels and about the city of Almeria. Thankyou Virginia.

The guide Sara provided us with very detailed information. Attentive and willing to answer and clarify possible doubts. very nice. We have learnt a lot. I recommend the visit.

Sarah was very kind, she told us many things, and she was very attentive in translating everything into English, so that everyone could understand well.

guide was happy to provide tour in English & gave us lots of information
