GREAT WAY TO SEE GRANADA AND PICK YOUR MUST-SEES/DOS

OK so this is not a substitute for on-foot exploration, although I imagine that some of the riders abuse it as such....! It is tempting to just ride in circles and never get off because the stops are FAR APART. [NEEDS FIXING, GYG] AND THE SEATS NEED PADDING AS WELL! Very bumpy ride in some spots, a bit of a rollercoaster feel sometimes, and yes, there are accidents. That said, I used this as my transport around Granada to explore sights and areas that piqued my interest. The 'audio tour' is lame, it lags behind the driver so you can a. miss your stop and b. miss seeing the attraction described. THAT NEEDS FIXING AS WELL. All of this said I would STILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. The Corte Ingles bonus 'TAPAS AND GLASS OF WINE' on the receipt is hard to make use of; they are too far from the line to be a quick stop, [in fact I could not find it.] but do jump on and off and give yourself time to explore both sides of the line as the up and downhill are on different sides.

Easy, convenient, great way to get a feel for the city prior to tourin

We bought the ticket one day early online. It was easy and cheap ($12 Euro for one day, two people (one senior). When we arrived in Granada we easiliy found the nearest stop of the train. The first one was full, so we waited for the next (maybe 5 minutes) and that one had plenty of room. We first toured the whole route then got off at Alhambra. For the rest of the day we got on and off shopping or touring and then getting back on. We never waited more than 10 minutes and every train had plenty of space after that first one. Yes it's bumpy - yes it's noisy - if you want an airconditioned rubber ride then get an expensive tour. It was very convenient, the map was excellent and the drivers were polite and patient. As always, a little Spanish is very helpful.

Got to See the Alhambra, Got to Play on a Segway

Tickets were not available for the Alhambra by itself, so we had to get in via a tour group, and even that also required booking an additional tour of Granada via a Segway/EBike. It was more than I really wanted to pay, but didn't feel I had any other option. That said, we're had a great day. The Alhambra experience was much more worthwhile with the expertise of a guide and Fernando did a wonderful job. We had headsets which made it much easier to hear and thus was much more informative, entertaining, and well paced. Afterwards came the Segway tour of the town of Granada. Our guide Fabricio was very enthusiastic, entertaining, and knowledgeable. It all combined to make for a great, one-of-a-kind day, that I am glad that I "splurged" for.

A great way to see old Granada in 2.5 hours without exhaustion

The tour started with Francisco a great informative guide of the Alhambra, I would recommend that you request him if he is available, his English is great and kept the group on task to see this impressive iconic palace and gardens and he gave us good recommendations for lunch. We then proceeded to do the Segway tour (our third) we love this form of transport especially on old world pavements. Again our guides where great Fabricio led the way and was fun and informitive, again ask for him. We had a tremendous day because of both these hard working guides!

An interesting and informative tour of the city

I've done quite a few city bike tours, and have found them to be a good way of getting to know places. This one was no exception. Our guide (Beatrice) was very knowledgeable about the city and its religious history (complicated to say the least). It was fun to spend an afternoon in her company whilst pedalling the cobbled streets of this pretty amazing place
