Great tour

We enjoyed the tour and the guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Without a guide we would have missed a lot. Don't be taken in by the "skip the queue" description - when we were there (early September) there were no queues, maybe there are in the height of summer, but there are so many cash desks that I can't imagine they would be long.

Walk in Granada are the only tours you need.

I went with these guys for 3 different tours whilst in Granada and each one was brilliant. The guides are super friendly and super knowledgeable. My guide for this particular tour was the lovely Jenny! She dealt with everything perfectly and we had so much time to see everything and got so much information but not in an overwhelming way. Nothing was rushed. She even followed up with me after the tour had finished later that night to recommend to me a tour company for the Sierra Nevada once she found the information out from a colleague. How's that for customer service? :D

It was good but due to English guide not available we booked tour in advance with Spanish guide and we were not flexible with dates. It is always good to book in advance as walk-in could be disappointing as it was peak season. We also suggest that wear shoes as there is lot of walking and photo snapping. Do not carry selfie stick as even security guards will remind you that it might obstruct others when you lengthen the stick. It is not restricted but for safety reasons. Guide though was speaking Spanish, he knew good English too. Audio guide helps if you are not distracted by photo sessions and if you are keen to know more of the history.
