    Very good tour. Really well organized in everything. Very small groups which facilitate the visit. Our guide Carlos F. very very good! Very knowledgeable guy, he guided us for well over 3h without ever losing our attention. He also organized the tour between the 3 different parts in a careful way taking into account the sun and the temperature, thus leaving the buildings as the last part. Highly recommended and congratulations to Carlos F!

    Very authentic guided tour by our Granada guide. Not only about the history of the Alhambra but also about life in Spain and the subtle differences between Granada and the Andalusian capital Seville was chatted during the 3 hour tour. The only downside was the English tour despite the German booking, but there were not enough participants for this.

    Juan our super guide (he spoke English and Italian just for us) took us for a walk for 3 hours telling us all kinds of anecdotes. Highly recommended experience not to waste time and not to get lost in a really large area. The only thing that can be improved is the information on the point of cons .... not close to the entrance area as usual.
