    Highly recommended. I booked this tour for my parents to visit the Alhambra and they came back very happy with the service they received. The guides were very attentive and helpful. I will book again. Only one recommendation, do not go in summer with elderly people in the afternoon to the Alhambra, do it in the morning because of the extreme heat.

    It is an impressive trip. The city is worth seeing 😀 and the Alhambra is indescribably beautiful and impressive. Seeing this monument belongs on everyone's bucket list. Juanjo provided us with detailed information about his country throughout the trip, showed us around the city and handed us over to a knowledgeable colleague at the Alhambra. She was charming and very friendly. Nigella gave us a good understanding of the history and the time flew by and we recommend booking the full package, which includes the city and the Alhambra (gardens and palaces). There were guests who had only booked the bus and therefore had problems with the dates - no need to book the Alhambra entrance on your own! It works perfectly through the agency 😉 An absolute recommendation!

    Wonderful trip even without visiting Alhambra

    We booked a last minute flight to Benalmádena for a few days stay but have always wanted to visit Granada for the Alhambra.
    We realised that without booking in advance we may be too late to visit... A concept that others on the tour failed to grasp and our guide had to politely insist that such a famous attraction should be planned well ahead of
    We had a fabulous time exploring all the other sights and experiences the city has to offer, like the Cathedral and statue of Christopher Columbus and Queen Isabella, which we had learned about on the journey there. There was a lively city festival taking place which was exciting to see the parade and hear the crowds lapping up the music.
    We then visited a few bars and sampled some local beer and tapas which were much nicer quality than we had experienced in other parts of Spain.
    The 5 and a half hours passed quickly and we did not feel we had missed out by not going to Alhambra as there was so much to see and enjoy. It gives us a reason to return to this beautiful city, and maybe even stay 2 or 3 days.
    Our guide Carlos and driver Javier made a long day trip very enjoyable and they were great ambassadors for the company. We will use this company again. It took all the stress out of having to get to and from our resort by public transport and we gained interesting facts and fun along the way.

    Fantastic tour with a respectable sized group. Great tour and very informative and knowledgeable local guide. Really enjoyed this company and wish I had booked my other trips with them as the other company I travelled with was not very good. Defo recommend for all trips

    Perfect mix between the guided part and the free time to check it out on your own. It was a pleasure to have Noelia and Juanjo as guides.

    Great Trip

    We enjoyed the day. Our guide Carlos explained interesting facts and told some nice anecdotes about the history of Spain, about Andalusian landscape, about special villages we passed on our way to Granada, about olives and figs. It was informative and entertaining. After our arrival he accompanied us to the center to make sure that we would find our way back to the meeting point. In the afternoon one of the passengers was missing, the lady misunderstood and waited at the wrong place. And the driver Juan went there with us and picked her up. Two other ladies from Brasilia lost their phone in the taxi. Carlos did his best to help them. It was a special day for us. We thank Carlos and Juan for everything.

    Jorge gave us a lot of interesting information about Andalusia during the trip. In Granada, the four of us were lucky enough to have a young Spanish guide who showed us the Alhambra for 2.5 hours with great commitment and passion, as well as a wealth of information, making the trip a fantastic experience for us!
