      Good day going to Granads

      Our tour to Granada was easy and well planned. Seeing the Alhambra and the old quarter of Granada was what we hoped for. Our guide of the Alhambra could have supplied more detailed information, but we did get a decent overview. The guide who took us through the old quarter was great and helped us to have a fun day, The lunch reserved for us was in a good location with good food. Overall satisfying trip.

      Well organised small group tour in comfortable 19 seater van.

      Our guide, Catherine, was excellent in all respects and VERY good at providing interesting information. Our guide in the Alahambra, Beatrix, was also excellent and spoke clear English, as did Catherine. There was a problem when entering the Nasrid Palace because some people had bought entry tickets independently of the tour company and this caused a bank-up at of following groups whilst it was sorted out. It was then difficult to keep with your own group going through the absolutely amazing palace. I would suggest tour operator check ticket situation with customers prior to start of the otherwise great tour. Overall this tour is one to definitely not miss !!!!!!! It is the second time I have been to the Alahambra and it was equally pleasing again.

      The trip was good, except for the last minute cancellation of the optional walking tour of Albaycin due to time constraint. That was disappointing as we were looking forward to it. However, Pablo, our guide, assured us that we should write to our respective online booking agency for a refund ( those who had opted for it while booking). I regret not being able to visit the souvenir shop in Alhambra because the tour of Alhambra took longer and we did not have the time to look around. Pick up and drop off was smooth and on time. Our guides, Pablo and Carlos were very informative, helpful and witty. In one word, both were excellent. I suggest the tour of Alhambra and Albaycin be kept separate as it is impossible to do both on a day trip. There is so much to see and experience. It was also rather sunny and warm for a walking tour in the afternoon.
