I liked the independence allowed by this tour.

I had a great independent tour of the Alhambra. The Granada card was a big help as I like to go on my own, not in a group. The tour company made reservations for me to see the Nasrid palace as well as a good walking tour of the Albaicin and Sacramento neighborhoods. After that I was on my own schedule and with the Granada card I went where and when I wanted. Since I had never been to Granada, this was worth the money for me as it saved me a lot of time and confusion.

I cannot give the 5 stars for the initial scare of leaving us without tickets to the Alhambra. But the way in which they solved it together with the attention, dedication and good work of David (in the cathedral first and in the Alhambra later) and Javi (in the Albaicin / Sacromonte promenade) making views with a lot of info and long duration in interesting and entertaining visits. Thank you. Recommendable. Although the guides would deserve a very up front.

A visit in two stages not specified when booking but which suited us anyway. In the morning, The Alhambra from 11:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. And from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. the Albaicin district. Our guide Andréa was able to provide important information without overloading us with dates. The visit to the Alhambra charmed us with particularly the Generalife and its gardens, and the bewitching Nasrid Palace.
