The guide was excellent with sharing the history of the neighborhoods and we saw several viewpoints of the city. At the end a very helpful list of restaurant and bar recommendations was given that helped me to enjoy the city more with food and authentic atmospheres.

There was a little bit confusion about the meeting point. Luckily we found the sign for Café Bar and Anna was waiting for us. Anna was extremely patient with everyone in the tour. I had a great time. It was well worth it.

Great trip - packed a lot in a long day! The Alhambra tour was terrific - Carlos Fuentes was an excellent guide for our group. And Petra was a great overall guide.

We had a lovely walk through the different areas. The guide was informative, friendly and interactive. Highly recommend this tour!

Our guide gave excellent information about the Alhambra. We had an excellent time and I highly recommend this tour.
