    On September 7th, 2021, we had a guided tour of the Alhambra with Pedro as a guide. There weren't many visitors because of Covid-19. Not ordinary crowds. No lines. No waiting time ....... Pedro was adorable: smart, with good English, humorous enough to know when to stop, polite, energetic, with a deep knowledge of history who could answer questions about past and present life in Spain. We had at least a 3 hour tour of all the places: Alhambra complex, including the Nasrid Palaces, Generalife Palace and Gardens, and Alcazaba Fortress and stay for another hour to enjoy this beautiful place. Thanks Pedro for opening up Granada to us. P.S. Late in the evening of the same day we had another walking tour and to our pleasant surprise, Pedro also directed this tour. It was another 2.5 hours of interesting facts about special quarters of Granada: Albaicín & Sacromonte. Take this tour as well ..... and enjoy.

    We visited Alhambra yesterday it was amazing . Having been told I couldn’t get tickets for a few days I secured an English and Spanish tour for the following g day . It was booked for 12.00 but got changed to 4pm which was a Godsend as it’s such a steep hill to walk to get to the ticket office . I’d advise getting a taxi. The tour was by Anna who was nothing short of amazing . He English was excellent and we listened through head phones . Everything she told us was so Interesting and the palace is Incredible. They leave the best till last. It is 3 hours so wear good shoes , take plenty of water And make sure you have eaten before hand.

Espectacular! Nos encanto la Alhambra. Su historia, arquitectura, lo imponente y sobre todo entender cada detalle con la guía Pepa. Recorrimos los palacios, mezquitas, caminos, jardines y vimos cambios entre Musulmanes y Cristianos. Es un punto imperdible si estás en Andalucía.

Very good guided tour. The tour lasted 3 and a half hours. We were able to ask all the questions we wanted, we went to every corner. It was very comfortable to have a radio with a headset to be able to listen to the guide when there were many people. I recommend it!

The guide was up to the monuments of the Alhambra, that is to say breathtaking. Very bright, caring for each of us. Everything was fine. Even a small cool stop halfway through which was welcome.

Good and calm guide who knew well to tell and guided us well. We had earplugs in which we got, which made it perfectly intelligible.

Sacromonte may be neglected. Don't expect caves!
