The place was extraordinarily beautiful and Mr. Hamdi, our private tour guide, made it even more enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable about the area, has good communication skills and has put all of his efforts to make sure we get the maximum out of it. I Highly recommend a private tour guide for this place.

Carlos is an excellent guide with excellent expertise. He not only brought us the history of the Alhambra and Granada but also embedded the history in context with anecdotes and history transfers. We really enjoyed the enriching hours with him and would like to take this opportunity to thank him so much again. With best regards, Gabriela Kuhn Thöny and Christian Thöny
