Everything was perfect. My guide was at our meeting point on time with a big sign with my name on it. Additionally I got a book about the Alhambra as a present (this was not part of the booked tour). Very friendly guide and you get the impression as you’re visiting Spanish friends that show you their country. With this tour you do not have to wait to get access as you have the fast lane entry to all attractions/buildings. My guide was very patient as their was so much to explore and see within the Alhambra and the tour got longer than the planned 3 hours. Very professional agency.

Our guide, Anna, was excellent and the tour was a highlight of our time in Spain. Maria Jesus was excellent in helping us with our arrangements and was very kind and thoughtful. The experience was amazing and Anna and Maria Jesus can be proud of the job they did for us!! Many thanks to both of them!! Mike
