I love tours these days. The amount of quality information you are given by our very informed eloquent and interesting guide was quite staggering. But I joined this tour to get some great sunset pictures of Granada and the Al Hambra. We walked he talked about many different aspects of the history, and we reached the very crowded busy St. Nicholas Mirador. It was a carnival lots of people a flamenco show and lively and lovely. I was disappointed to move on quite so quickly as I expected this to be the highlight of the tour. Luckily our guide took us on to a few other places which gave us excellent views and much less people.. all the time telling us about the history of the people who lived in these areas of Albaicin and Sacromonte. An excellent tour with a friendly knowledgeable guide, and one I would strongly recommend. It was also nice to meet other travellers on out walk who had the pleasure of another of his tours and also rated him highly. A happy vibrant tour. Very happy too.

Listening to the history of the Alhambra felt like I was there during that time. Eduardo did a good job of explaining everything.
