First of all the weather was exceptionally good which made the walking around and the taking of photographs so much more pleasure able. Our guide,Emilio,was so professional both knowledgeable and caring for everyone as not all of the visitors not just in our group but on a daily basis are in the same state of health.The site of Alhambra had been brought to my attention before my visit and it did not fail to disappoint,definitely a must do for any future visitors

I still had doubts whether this would really work until - I got into the Alhambra without any problems whatsoever. It was a short term decision one night before my visit and it worked perfectly. Great experience and thumbs up!

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.

Very entertaining and interesting tour, with a very nice and professional guide, all very good and highly recommended !! A must in Granada and better in a guided tour to know more

The meeting point was easy to find. With the app, everything went easier for me to explore Alhambra alone. Thank you so much!!!!
