    Our guide was excellent, but we were surprised that our "English-speaking" tour ended up being dual-language in English and Spanish. The guide covered it well, but the tour was probably an hour longer than expected as everything was repeated in two languages. I guess we had extra time for photos when it was time for the other language.

    The trip was great. Our guide Gustavo gave a very entertaining tour, was super helpful and shared a lot of knowledge and great details. His humorous conversation made us totally forget the bad weather which we were unfortunate to have the trip in. His English is very clear and the trick with the earphones which he connected us with gave us the freedom to move around freely without missing a word of the explanations. We had some doubts beforehand either to see Alhambra with or without guide, but we figured seeing Alhambra without a good guide would only give a fraction of the experience. Highly recommended!

    Our guide (Saul, sorry I'm not sure of the spelling) was really great. An enthusiast of the alhambra who speaks very good French. In addition he reads and speaks Arabic and read the Alhambra to us like a book. One more. We had a visit where time was not counted. Really a very good memory and a discovery of the site in excellent conditions although in Holy Week. Thank you.
