Reviews & Ratings

  1. The tour guide Victor? was excellent. A great why to see the major sights of the city except the Alhumbra if u only have a short time
  2. Our guide, Victor, was very passionate and had a ton of info on the history, making the tour fun
  3. Excellent local guide who made the tour interesting and educational. Well worth taking this guided tour to see part of the central area and Albacyin.
  4. Wow! This tour convinced me that your company is superb! I realized when we arrived at our hotel, minutes before the tour was scheduled to begin, that I had not confirmed the tour in advance. I frantically tried to reach the tour operators, to no avail, when our driver suddenly appeared ready to take us to our destination! We learned more about Granada in this four-hour late afternoon tour than we learned in the remaining 36 hours of our stay! Not only were the cathedral and monastery beautiful, but the history imparted to us has piqued my curiosity to learn much more about Ferdinand and Isabella and the Christian "conquest" of the Muslims. And, the old world charm of the Muslim quarter is indescribable. This section of town is "off the beaten path" and we would never have been aware of its existence had it not been included on this tour.
  5. It was well organized. The bus pickup us up on time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and information delivered in a pleasant way - not too much details and many dates.
