good tour route but little explanation from guide

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..

Mar was a great guide, punctual, great connoisseur of her city and extremely friendly and helpful. Nice to be treated so well. He would repeat without a doubt with her.

Very informative

Very informative and interesting. The hill climb at the beginning was a bit daunting but tour afterwards was well worth it.

Excellent walking tour with Sabina. Fascinating information & stunning views. Can 100% recommend this trip.

Uncomplicated booking of the tour, meeting point in Granada
