We loved this tour - the group was small and from different countries but our excellent guide Francesc dealt brilliantly giving the tour in both English and German. He has great knowledge about and obviously loves the Alhambra

Very good, you just have to pay attention to the numbers in the audio guide which do not correspond to the official numbers on site.

Good but sudden and unexpected brakes are a bit uncomfortable and often

So good. We have more visitors coming and want to do it again!

Carmen is an excellent guide, Knowledgeable, clear and fun.
