It was a Great day out to Granada to see the Alhambra. Seeing this great monument was thd highlight of our tour. However as with seeing all these great monuments with an islamic heritage it left you with mixed emotional feeling's. Of the desecration that took place in the name of religion. It is a lesson for us all to learn from of what happens if we cannot respect and accept one another. Our guide Peter was very patient and knowledgeable as was Annie our guide in the Alhambra. The only negative was that we were not given any time to buy any souvenirs.

Petra is very helpful. Our tour guide Alberto was knowlegeable. We booked the tour last minute and it was far more expensive than tripvisor. Overall it was an excellent tour and well organised.

Fantastico!! Jorge es un guía extremadamente carismático, muchas gracias!

A great small tour and the coach/bus was very comfortable

Outstanding guide in Alhambra. Very good programma
