El tour fue increíble, detallado y extenso con una guía apasionada y muy conocedor, además de muy amable y consciente del bienestar del grupo. Yo recomendaría a cualquier persona interesada en el mismo tour que dedica unas horas para leer un libro en el tema del Alhambra, antes del recorrido en persona, para que pueda conseguir un poco de conocimiento de la historia y contexto del lugar y la ciudad de Granada más ampliamente. Por lo menos como un inglés me costaba mucho seguir el hilo de la historia con todas sus bellezas y fascinantes detalles.

No lie, Alhrambra is can't miss. We even popped a tire on the way back and it was still 100% worth the hassle. Anna was a wonderful guide. The tour was paced well and packed with interesting facts.

The tour was extremely helpful in knowing the history of the Alhambra and the purpose of each area and it’s significance. My kids also enjoyed it. Highly recommend this tour!
