It was one of the most interesting tours! I learned so much about the history of the people who live there as well as Granada. Our guide, Josh, was wonderful. Very professional and expert. He also showed us special places with great views of the Alhambra.

Very good tour of the Albaicin and the Sacromonte. Pedro has been very kind and gave us a leisurely tour with many explanations and stories. We highly recommend the tour and preferably take it in the afternoon because of the sun and heat.

Josh is a very knowledgeable and nice guide. The tour was very interesting and dynamic. Just the amount of information one needs with a good portion of humor. Very good English. Thank you, Josh, and good luck to you!

The guide was very friendly and gave us an excellent explanation of the corners of the Albaicín and Sacromonte. Completely recommendable.

Juana was lovely and super informative about the area, culture, and history.
