The guide Sergio was fantastic! I wish I could remember everything he said, because he had such amazing information. The transport itself was fine, except that on the way back, the driver seemed to be going slowly, and finally we got him to realize the ship would not wait. We were late getting back, but friends told crew we were very close. I don’t know if we stayed too long at the Alhambra or driver was slow. The tour did require some stamina and flexibility; maybe the tour mentioned that-if not, it should. Lots of uneven stairs and inclines. But worth it!

The "tour operator" didn't really do anything for us other than provide the transportation to the Alhambra. We were dropped off in Granada for about an hour and a half and then picked up and brought to the Alhambra. The tour there was excellent. However, they tend to make the groups too large and it got somewhat unwieldly at times. Overall, though, I thought it was worth the money.

Good communication beforehand, pick-up was on time for the drive to Alhambra, guide through Alhambra was excellent. We liked that this tour went through all of Alhambra, guide's English was excellent, & she offered to take pictures. Small group which was great because Alhambra is crowded. We had free time to see some of Granada at the end. Directions were clear on where to meet our driver and the driver was ready early for the drive back to Malaga. We did this tour instead of one offered by our cruise ship, for the same cost. The Guided Tour was much better than the cruise ship tour and only 6 in our group, instead of 25 in the cruise ship tour who had to wear earpieces to hear their guide. Highly recommend this tour for their efficiency, reliability, and quality.
