    We were so lucky to have Ana Diaz as our guide for the Alhambra tour. Such a lovely and knowledgeable lady who made everything very interesting. We had a problem ( our fault,) by forgetting our passports (we had ID but you need something with a photo on it) and had to go back to the apartment in a taxi. Ana worked out when she and the rest of the group would be and told us to get a taxi to there. It worked out brilliantly thanks to her thoughtfulness and kindness.

    About 3 hours of guided tour with a small group of 6 pple. The place is a must see in Granada. Ana was a great guide. I would have got lost without a guide! We did the tour at 10AM and there was not many tourists so there was no queue anywhere and made the tour very enjoyable. We were able to stay longer on the site after the tour to enjoy the views over the city.

    We booked the tour as there were no direct tickets left but we were so glad this was the case! The tour was value for money from start to finish and we learned so much more than we would have with just the audio guide. We thought 3 1/2 hours may be too long for us but it went in a flash due to the enthralling stories from the guide and her own interest in the subject. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Alhambra.
