    Wonderful 2 days in Granada with our guide!

    We had an amazing time in Granada visiting the Albacin & Alhambra. We booked the private tour based on other reviews and we were so glad we did, our guide Eduardo was fantastic! We have 3 adults and a 21 month old baby and with great communication with the tour company, we split our 5 hour tour into 2 days. We started with the Albacin tour at 14:45 in and visited the Alhambra at 10:00 the next morning. It rained on the 1st day and Eduardo made sure we were comfortable at all times. He is very knowledgeable, his warm, patient and happy demeanor was much appreciated on a rainy day. The Alhambra tour was outstanding and we had sunshine, a perfect ending to our Spain vacation.

    Best tour with Asier

    I loved this tour. It was for myself and my two children 8 and 12. I am a historian of religion and mythologist and was so excited to finally make it here. Asier made everything come to life. His information was point on and engaging. My children enjoyed the day and learned so much. I highly recommend Asier to be your guide he is very knowledgeable and presents the history with great enthusiasm. Thank you for the best day in Spain!
