First of all the weather was exceptionally good which made the walking around and the taking of photographs so much more pleasure able. Our guide,Emilio,was so professional both knowledgeable and caring for everyone as not all of the visitors not just in our group but on a daily basis are in the same state of health.The site of Alhambra had been brought to my attention before my visit and it did not fail to disappoint,definitely a must do for any future visitors

The Alhambra was an amazing experience! Our guide took us to all of the major sights, and we really learned a lot. We saw the Generalife, the Alcazaba, and the Nasrid Palaces (which were our favorite). Our only suggestion for improvement is to start with the Nasrid Palaces first.

Our guide, Anastasia, gave us a lot of background knowledge about Andalusia and especially about Granada in an entertaining way. It was really great.

Excelente todo! Puntualidad, los guías muy buenos y divertidos. Muy clara y amena la explicación.

The information and friendliness were perfect. Very deep knowledge was imparted
