Very interesting introduction to Grenada

We were a group of five and most pleased to have the tour to ourselves, especially when we came across one of the free walking tours which included about thirty people! Our guide Violetta was very knowledgeable about the history of Grenada, and Spain generally and her English was excellent. The tour covered a reasonable area over the two hour period with plenty of stops so even though one of our group has a dodgy hip and one an unsound ankle we were all fine! Would definitely recommend this tour as very good value for money.

Very informative & the guide had personality

We did this walking tour on our first day and we're glad that we did. It enabled us to get a grip on the layout of Granada and we went to many back streets that we probably wouldn't have found. the guide was very engaging and informative. Highly recommend this tour
