Granada: Royal Chapel and Historical Center Walking Tour
- Skip the line through a separate entrance
- Duration: 1.5 hours
We wanted to see all of Alhambra and this tour does just that! It includes entrance to the popular Nasrid Palaces and not having to wait in any lines, which is also a plus!! Borja had so many interesting facts about the entire place and was really knowledgeable about the history with Alhambra. We asked so many questions and all were answered! Don’t forget to see the Washington Irving statue at the end...fabulous!! We were going to head for our free tapas and drink but Borja remembered we forgot to see the museum, so they took extra time to take us back to see the museum. We were glad we got to see it! While walking to the tapas restaurant, we also had a mini walking tour and was given some more interesting facts about Ferdinand and Isabella. Overall, I highly recommend you to find a way to request for Borja and Adrianna. They were very friendly and fantastic tour guides!! We had such a fun tour! 5 out of 5!!
The pick-up at the hotel was very good in time. Don't think you can have breakfast in the bus, because eating was not allowed. The guide was very experienced and a nice man with a lot of knowledge. We went through the Alhambra a little bit quick, because it's so big. It was tiring, also because of the heat, but in the end you have a very good image of the Alhambra. Just one thing, you won't see a lot of Granada. You just go through the old city once with the bus, in order to go directly to the Alhambra. In the end, if you don't choose for the lunch option, you have 2 hours free time in Granada, but not in the old center. So, a better name for the tour would be: full day Alhambra tour.
I really enjoyed the tour as a whole since he was so informative and was able to answer all of our questions. He did walk a bit fast which I enjoyed, but my parents didn’t love that. I would have liked for him to point out good spots to take pictures since he would move quickly. The downside was the tour was in Spanish and English, so part of the time we were bored as well as the others while we listened. Overall, it was a great tour, and the tapas place was delicious!!!!
Have to admit it is not an easy task to deal with a group with four different language speaking people. Nati, Julian's guide was so good. I invite people all over the world to come and visit the Red Fort, Agra Fort and THE Taj Mahal and enjoy the creation, the art and artisans skill. Believe me they are extraordinary. I only hope we could organise our tours so efficiently and with educated proffessional guides.
Everything was great, the guide very knowledgeable but felt a little rushed. Granada visit was great too with enough time to eat and have a little look around as a taster. Transfer coach very comfortable with Air-con and a stop between Granada and Malaga. Thank you.
