Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Sightseeing Tour
- Duration: 3 hours
Hamdi was our tour guide and he gave us an excellent tour of the Alhambra and many other monuments. His knowledge is very well rounded on Andalusian history and history in general. A very pleasant experience and he was kind enough to give us a number of gifts, which we are very thankful for. Hamdi was very interactive with us while giving us the tour and he was also very flexible in the timings. A perfect tour with nothing to complain about. Certainly not our last tour here and hoping others get to live this experience. The tour is much recommended to others and especially with the guide Hamdi. أفضل ارشاد سياحي للسياح العرب أو المسلمين، المرشد حمدي خلوق و مثقف بدرجة عالية و عيشنا تاريخ الأندلس الجميل في غرناطة. انصح الكل فيه.
The group was mostly Spanish, (we were the only 2 non spanish speaking) and the guide seemed to spend a lot of time explaining the history of the sites to them, her translation was only one or 2 sentences into english which was very disappointing. We may as well have walked the route by ourselves. There are several tours on offer, including cheaper and free ones.. if you are looking for an english speaking tour perhaps try another! The route itself and the views are beautiful, so we still had an enjoyable afternoon..
We explored - Albaycin and Sacromonte. Our guide was perhaps more interested in speaking Spanish to travelers close to her own age; nevertheless, we endured, and were pleased to have made the effort. One family brought a baby in a stroller and struggled with the pace of the walk on the hills. We left 20 minutes late, waiting for late arrivals, and then were told that our trip would be 2 hours, instead of 2 and a half hours. I felt like we were running to make up for lost time.
Me and my friends really enjoyed the Segway tour of Granada. The guide was friendly and informative and took us on a wonderful scenic tour in the hills and the caves. We saw many sites and had a wonderful view of the Alhambra.
George is the best tour guide ever! You can’t find a better guide than him. He is more like friend not just a guide. He just made our day. Find George at topsegway Granada!✌
