What people are saying about Albaicin
The pick-up was on time & our car was fully booked (8 people). The driver made a 30min stop on the way at a restaurant which was too long. The drop-off in Granada was close to the old town but 1 hour 15 min is too short to do much (other than lunch). For the tour in Alhambra you get another guide (ours was Enrique). He was very knowledgeable and friendly. I only found it a bit inconvenient that he had to do the tour in 2 languages - therefore explanations took twice as long and you had less time for photos etc. Overall the time within Alhambra felt quite short. Our tour lasted 2.45 hours and quite a bit of it was walking from one end to another. A bit more time here and there would have been much appreciated. After Alhambra, the driver drove us straight back to Malaga without going to the viewpoint that other tours visit. We had some traffic on the way back but still arrived after just 8.5 hours (way short of 10). For that I found the price to be too expensive.
The worst part- the local company and this website have totally different pick up locations. Be very careful to go to the right place. Really enjoyed the tour of Al-Hambra. Gustavo was an amazing tour guide. He was humorous and engaging and I really enjoyed learning from him. Our tour guide on the way up/ for Albaycin was okay. Her English was a little hard to understand at times, but she was kind and sweet. I wish we hadn't booked the Albaycin. We saw cool stuff, but would have enjoyed some solo exploration more. Albaycin was fine, but not worth the money or the inability to do touring alone. Another thing, we got some free time to rest during our al-Hambra tour but the free time took place in outside of Al-Hambra. I wish we had some free time to explore al-Hambra. I wanted to see some things for longer, but that opportunity never arose. A don't regret doing this day trip at all and would recommend, but wish I could make some minor tweaks.
We booked the English speaking tour. We had one guide for the bus rides and Albycin (highly recommend this extra) and a different guide for the Alhambra. Both were excellent and highly knowledgeable. Our only complaint is that we though we were going to have about an hour of free time at Alhambra after the guided tour but we barely made it back to the bus in the time allotted. I think part of the problem was that we had a couple who only spoke Spanish and so the guide repeated everything in Spanish for them so we spent extra time at each stopping point. Other than that, the drivers were great, the bus was comfortable and I am glad we did the bus tour from Seville instead of trying to navigate to Alhambra ourselves.
took a 15-persons 10-hour tour from malaga in small van. spanish driver drove us to granada where patricia awaited us. everything was on time and well organized. the only flaw was that the intercom system that patricia used suffered from a lot of interference from other groups using the same radio channels (3 million visitors per year ..). as a result the connection was frequently lost so we couldn't hear half of what she was saying. in addition, her poor english accent (she is spanish) didn't help either. nevertheless, the sights were truly mazing, hence the 4 stars rating.
I would recommend a guided tour of Alhambra to fully understand the history of the different buildings and get the most out of the visit. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered every question thoroughly. We would have preferred more time at Alhambra instead of going into Granada, but otherwise the day was very well organised. The bus journey was also very comfortable with one stop each way for refreshments.
