    Booked through this website as advertised as small group tour. So was very surprised when 52 seater coach turned up, and there only appeared a couple of empty seats when we departed.
    El Alhambra itself is stunning though the tour itself is fast paced and we did have problems understanding the guide.
    Be warned on leaving the attraction there is a steep walk down to the town centre then after a couple of free hours in Granada another 20 minute walk back to the coach again at a fast pace.
    You have to be fit!!

    The Alhambra and the gardens were amazing and a must visit. The guides were very good, especially Andy who described the Alhambra and gardens very well.

    This was a great day to Grenada and the Alhambra palace. The guides were excellent and well informed. The Alhambra palace is magnificent. This is a wonderful day trip.

    The pickup was very smooth and the drive to Alhambra good and also offered one comfort stop. The tour guide Paco was very friendly, knowledgeable, spoke different languages clearly (including English) and gave us good commentary all the way there. The tour pick up from Alhambra was well managed and our guide was excellent. Note for some (not us) but there is a lot of walking and steep steps for those less able. Thoroughly enjoyable. What I didn’t like was the Granada town drop. There is no tour and virtually no guidance. The bus parking is too far from the centre of town and by that stage Paco was tired and probably only wanted lunch (perhaps understandably). Nonetheless it was a very disappointing component of the tourm

    We, my sister 2 brothers sister in law and husband found the trip to Alhambra great. The bus, the tour guide on the bus was very attentive. His English was good and easy understood. The alhambra was magnificent and all be that we walked for 3 hours, it seemed like 30 minutes, we were so engrossed with the splendor of the place. I would recommend anyone to go and take the guided tour as the whole of the palaces and gardens are taken in.

    Very good site. The tour rushed us through the main Nasrid Palace, which was disappointing. Spent most of our time in the gardens!

    An elderly woman had considerable pain and difficulty during the 20 minute downhill walk from the Alhambra. The guide left her behind with her husband in Granada, a crowded urban area. When we stopped in a plaza for free time to find lunch, the guide complained to us that he would have to use his free time to go back and find them. The organization should provide participants with the name and address of the bus meeting point (which was over a mile from the Alhambra) so that participants can make their own way to the meeting point without being lost. Verbal announcement of a meeting point in a strange city before people realize they will need it, is not a professional solution. The guide's attitude was shameful.

    Everything was very smooth, the pickup was in time and easy to find and the guide at the Alhambra, Maria-Jose, was so friendly and really knew a lot of facts and could answer our questions.

    We where picked up in the morning at 8 by a bus that was already packed! And some couples where taking dubble seats. We stopped after a hour for a 30 min “tecnical” stop. In the bus there was a guide (jean-piere) who we didnt understand all.. and we didnt see him much the whole tour. We where at the alhambra and had to wait 20 minutes before we could in because he lost members of the group.. the guid anthonio inside the alhambra was amazing! And knew alot. Then we where promissed to had free time in the city around 2,5 hours and we had to walk from the alhambra down to the city.. now are young people but there where also older people around 70 who had to walk also.. when we where finaly in the city, they told us that we had 1HOUR free time.. so everyone was upset about it!! And after that one small hour we had to walk again but now for 20 minutes to the bus again, instead of picking us up at the city. On the way back after a 45 min we had to stop for another “tacnical” problem, and guess what?! At the same resturant?.. then we noticed its just a deal between them so we eat and drink there something. Instead of letting us stop there 2 times they could have gaven us more free city time.

    Overall, the alhambra is beautiful!
    But i would never recoment this tour.
    Viator thankyou, tankyou for the worst tour i have ever been on.

    We enjoyed the tour once we were in Granada. But we were concerned about the local tour company saying that there were no pick up places (e.g. hotels) in Malaga. When the bus arrived at the pickup point it was already 1/2 full! We had to cancel two other tours because of this.
