What people are saying about Granada

This was the most fantastic tour I’ve ever had! Very personable driver who spoke fluent English was waiting for me at cruise terminal and whisked me away to Alhambra where I met my guide who was fluent in Arabic as well as English, and very knowledgeable in Islamic culture and history, which enabled him to provide detailed explanations of the Alhambra’s unique design, artwork and symbolism throughout the palaces. Tour time also allowed me to explore Granada’s old town before being returned to ship. I highly recommend.

Autentico, pasional, los artistas personifican la esencia del flamenco andaluz con sus movemientos fuertes y intensionales, taconedando el suelo con tal intensidad, fuego y pasion, que me puso los pelos de punta durante todo el espectaculo. Recomendaria este show a todos los visitantes a Granada

If you like architecture and history then the Alhambra is a must. The gardens are amazing and offer an a great aerial view of Granada. The Nasrid palaces have stunning architecture. All in all a great place to visit.
