El tour fue increíble, detallado y extenso con una guía apasionada y muy conocedor, además de muy amable y consciente del bienestar del grupo. Yo recomendaría a cualquier persona interesada en el mismo tour que dedica unas horas para leer un libro en el tema del Alhambra, antes del recorrido en persona, para que pueda conseguir un poco de conocimiento de la historia y contexto del lugar y la ciudad de Granada más ampliamente. Por lo menos como un inglés me costaba mucho seguir el hilo de la historia con todas sus bellezas y fascinantes detalles.

The tour was extremely helpful in knowing the history of the Alhambra and the purpose of each area and it’s significance. My kids also enjoyed it. Highly recommend this tour!

Nice, interesting, varied tour. Super nice guide. Good shoes are important. You should be a little agile and used to walking narrow paths, or at least not be afraid of it.

This unique experience was worth every effort. It is so wonderful it could not fail to please.

Carmen, our guide, was amazing!! Love her style of sharing and was really a smooth tour!
