I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! I almost purchased the admission alone but thought I’d spend a little extra for a guide and it was so worth it! The guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience that much more gratifying! You have a deeper appreciation for the experience when you know the background of the site. 10/10 recommend!

Worth the visit.

An interesting tour and perfectly guided by Christina. My only reservation, was that the tour indicated it should take about 1.5hrs, but on the day, it was 2& 1/4hrs! My back was really hurting by the end (surgery last year) and we kept being 'told off' for sitting down or leaning against the walls (Palace staff). Would recommend.

Beautiful place. A very nice guide, she told stories in an interesting and humorous way, referring to the history. I have a note of the meeting place, which has been changed several times, causing confusion. The original meeting point at the entrance to the Alcazar has been changed to a point far away in the organizer's office, which is convenient for the organizer, but not for participants who have to complete this round-trip route in the heat. With a busy schedule of classes, it is troublesome and burdensome for people with mobility limitations.
