What people are saying about Granada, Spain

I was lucky enough to have the tour guide all to myself. Maria was very knowledgeable and made sure to take her time in areas that required special attention. I will say that it was a bit chaotic at the meeting area so I would suggest arriving at least 15 mins prior to the start of the tour.

Wonderful! Borjas was a great and kind guide. He was knowledgeable and entertaining, and worked out great solutions for our mom on a walker. Our only advice would be to have the tour meet earlier than the beginning of our allotted the time in the first palace.

Amazing show! Passionate guitar player, singer & dancers! We enjoyed the smaller more intimate venue - could truly feel the intensity of the whole performance!

This was amazing, but a little more strenuous than advertised. I doubt children could do it.

Carlos was a good guide and very accommodating. It was a fun day out.
