Our group of 8 had a phenomenal day to Granada, Alhambra and Generalife Gardens. We were picked up on a small bus with 2 other couples from France and Germany. Guillermo spoke mostly in English for our drive to Granada giving us history of the area. We had a wonderful 1 hour walking tour of Granada and then lunch on our own before heading to the Alhambra and gardens. There, we met Sabine who was a wonderful and well informed guide. She was engaging and made our visit memorable. Our drive back to Almeria was a different route which gave us even more sights to see!! I highly recommend this tour!!

The tour with Noelia was magnificent, very complete and enjoyable

The main content of the tour, the visit to the Alhambra was 10, very knowledgeable and friendly Noelia, the speed with which he took it and the excellent content, congratulations, I absolutely recommend it

Well organised, interesting, structured; good guides.

The trip to Alhambra was well organised, we could hear our guide well ( headphones were provided). The guides in a bus in in Alhambra were knowledgeable and friendly. Spectacular views, and scenery.

Great day... good bus, great guide, the bus guide talked a lot but he was very informed. The man holding the sign at the port to give us directions to the bus was impatient and rude.

Great tour!

Guide was very energetic and navigated us around the Alhambra beautifully!
