Full description
The ancient city of Granada is full of unique beauty: come spend a full day in the city and soak up its culture, architecture, and history. In the morning, you will see the stunning Alhambra, a fortress built in the 9th century which later became a royal residence. In the afternoon, you will travel through Albayzin and Sacramonte, two fascinating Muslim neighbourhoods of the city. Albayzin is considered one of the most beautiful districts of Granada, known for its cobblestones and medieval feel. In Sacromonte, you’ll see the traditional cave houses inhabited historically by gypsies, and experience its gorgeous flamenco shows. Walking is by far the best way to explore every nook and cranny of the labyrinthian structure of these neighbourhoods.  Let your tour guide surprise you with historical information, legends, and artistic details for an unforgettable day.

We had the misfortune to go on a Spanish day off which made it very busy, but it was beautiful, really recommendable to visit Albayzin and Sacromonte!! An extra compliment to the organization: due to bad luck we were just a little too late and the tour guide had already left (everything goes right on time!) and normally you really don't get in anymore, because you only have the voucher and no entrance ticket and you will not receive a refund. But the organization really did everything they could to reach the tour guide, send us our tickets, and agree on a meeting place, so that we could still enter the park. Top arranged!

Super experience with two very enthusiastic and passionate guides. Because of all the background information you get, you go completely into the history of the Alhambra and the neighborhoods, great! I also really recommend going to the Alhambra with a guide, otherwise you won't have a good idea what everything is exactly, a waste of the experience.

Everything has been super great. Good explanations and it shows that he knows what he is talking about. He knows the site and all the surroundings well. He is nice, formal and very entertaining. I give it an 11 out of 10 because there is nothing I did not like about SANTI.
