Beautiful historical view of past cultures

The tour start time was changed from a 6AM pick up to a 10AM pick up from our hotel. We were driven to downtown where we boarded a coach tour bus. It was more than a 3 hr bus trip to Granada with an approx. 20 min stop in the middle. We were dropped in downtown Granada at approx. 13:45 to explore and see some of the sights in the area. My suggestion is to take a cab if you want to visit more than one particular neighborhood because time passes quickly. We were to rendezvous at dropoff location at 16:15 to drive up to the Alhambra Palace and Gardens to begin the tour at 16:30. The tour I booked was supposed to be in English only. I particularly chose this tour because you get a much better experience than when the same information is repeated in two or three languages.

Granada tour was very satisfying. The local operator visitour picked from our hotel. The guide Chema on the bus was very efficient he came in the hotel lobby gave a running commentry all through our journey. The guide in Alhambra was very knowledgeable and he gave such a beautiful description of this heritage site. We really enjoyed the whole tour very much.

Nice visit ... but at a run!

The return trip of two times 3 hours went very well in the company of a very pleasant driver and guide. The guide when visiting the Alhambra was perfect and clear in his explanations. However, I regret the little time spent on this visit (2 hours maximum), the site is huge. The visit followed one after the other to respect the departure of the site at 7 p.m. The stop of 2 hours for the lunch break in the center of Granada has, in my opinion, little interest and would have allowed to devote more time to the discovery and contemplation of the gardens and wonders of the Alhambra .
