You will exercise leg muscles going up the hill; result is a fine view

We explored - Albaycin and Sacromonte. Our guide was perhaps more interested in speaking Spanish to travelers close to her own age; nevertheless, we endured, and were pleased to have made the effort. One family brought a baby in a stroller and struggled with the pace of the walk on the hills. We left 20 minutes late, waiting for late arrivals, and then were told that our trip would be 2 hours, instead of 2 and a half hours. I felt like we were running to make up for lost time.

good tour route but little explanation from guide

The group was mostly Spanish, (we were the only 2 non spanish speaking) and the guide seemed to spend a lot of time explaining the history of the sites to them, her translation was only one or 2 sentences into english which was very disappointing. We may as well have walked the route by ourselves. There are several tours on offer, including cheaper and free ones.. if you are looking for an english speaking tour perhaps try another! The route itself and the views are beautiful, so we still had an enjoyable afternoon..

Great Tour!!!

We spent over two hours on this great walking tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and keep us all interested in every corner we turned. There is lots of stairs and hills to walk so it is very important to wear appropriate footwear. The Sacromonte area is very interesting with fabulous views of the Alhambra.
