We enjoyed a private tour, with lots of information and places of interest that our tour guide was very enthusiastic about sharing with us. She responded to our questions and requests, we visited a cave dwelling outside of the program. The highlight was of course the view of the Alhambra in the evening light. Another advantage of the evening tour is of course the lower temperatures.

Sumaya is a great tour guide who gave us a lot of interesting information about the Albaicin and Sacromonte neighborhoods. We went a bit off the normal tourist routes, at least we had the feeling that we hardly met any other groups. It was also great that the tour was only held for the three of us!

We had this amazing experience with Sumaya. The tour lasted a generous 2 hours, more than enough to make us fall in love with the Albaycin and Sacromonte districts which are very important for getting to know and fully understand Granada. Sumaya is very knowledgeable and professional and gave us a lot of "goodies" about the history and legends of the city. We recommend it to everyone as a guide for this beautiful tour.
