Good tour but BEWARE to get there early

Our tour guide was very friendly and informative and the tour of the alhambra itself was fantastic. However getting your ticket was a nighmare. The only information given was to meet in front of the map at the alhambra which was very vague. When you get where you assume is the map they refer to you find a mad frenzy of people with printed vouchers trying to find their tour guide. None of the tour guides i asked recognised the company we were booked with. It was only by complete chance i was about 2 meters away from the guide when I heard her call my name. Had I been any further away I doubt I would have heard. The guide waited a couple of minutes past the time stated that the tour was to start and called the names of the remaining people one last time (only called them twice in total) and then decided to go ahead and start the tour. No signs/flags/any form of indication of where the guide was. I felt terrible for the people were probably still looking where to get their ticket from.

The current ticket-buying process for the Alhambra is a rip-off. The tour companies, like this one, buy up the tickets in bulk 'way ahead of time so there are none left for ordinary people to buy closer to the date. Thus the only way you can ever get a ticket is to register for a guided tour like this, and pay four times (or more!) than the cost of the gate ticket (which comes with a good English audioguide!). By the way, the tour was advertised as English but turned out to be more than half the time, in Spanish. We've done this twice now, with diff companies, and each time the very expensive tour was mostly in Spanish. The guide was OK, but hurried us through things and mostly retailed anecdotes at times sexist and not really relevant. (Why is a queen who takes lovers a "nymphomaniac," but a king who takes lovers not even worth an adjective?) I'm writing to UNESCO to complain about these unfair and corrupt ticket-selling practices. The Alhambra should be open to everyone!

Mary Carmen was a phenomenal guide. Her language skills were outstanding as she did the tour in English and Spanish (for the 2 Spanish people who showed up), she was knowledgeable, entertaining and congenial.
