Loved the Alhambra and appreciated the free time in Granada. Phillipe our tour guide at the Alhambra was wonderful and very knowledgeable. He is an asset to the tour company. Thank you Phillipe for an incredible tour where we experienced the history wonder and beauty of the Alhambra.

Very nice tour. The tour guides were very informative. Too bad that everything was told 3 times... In Spanish, French and English. That makes everything a bit tough... But respect for the tour leader...
