There are many, many groups meeting at the "meeting point". I arrived 25 minutes early, looked for the group, asked personnel & other group guides but never did find my group. Turns out they met by where the buses are. I had trouble getting through to customer service until the nice fellow at the information booth gave me a different number. I got through on that number & thanks to Alicia of My Top Tours was able to get my ticket & meet up with the tour already underway. Alhambra is beautiful & our guide, Sherif, was extremely knowledgeable & a very nice guy.

Javier es un guía excelente. Hizo que la visita a la Alhambra sea muy dinámica y didáctica. Tiene un muy buen manejo de grupo. Una experiencia excelente! Una sola cosa para mejorar y es como identificar a los guías en el punto de partida, ya que es un lugar lleno de gente y fue muy difícil localizar al guía de nuestro grupo. Recomiendo ir con tiempo para evitar inconvenientes.

We had a wonderful local guide qualified as a historian proud of his origins in Granada. He explained everything well and made us feel engrossed in the tour throughout.

This trolley was a fantastic and inexpensive way to tour the city of Granada!
